Abstract

The authors tried to investigate the possibility of creating a comprehensive, easily applicable and readable system for transcribing Slovene geographical names into Arabic. They prepared a list of around 200 important geographical names in Slovenia and a map which includes some of those names in Arabic manuscript form. In the first chapter they outlined some basic characteristics of Arabic and Slovene language and some procedures of transformations of non-Roman scripts and inversely.

 

Avtorji so raziskali možnost priprave razumljivega, lahko uporabnega in berljivega sistema transkripcije slovenskih zemljepisnih imen v arabščino. Za ta namen so pripravili preglednico z nekaj več kot 200 pomembnimi zemljepisnimi imeni in zemljevid, na katerega so vnesli arabske zapise najpomembnejših med njimi. V uvodnem delu so predstavljene tudi poglavitne značilnosti arabskega in slovenskega jezika ter postopki prevedbe nelatiničnih pisav v latinične in obratno.
