Abstract: This article deals with etymological comparisons of some of the names of the agricultural tools and objects in the Arabic dialects of Antioch and Ramallah. We suppose that the names gathered from both dialects, one dialect located on the northern edge (Arabic dialect of Karaali (Qrālī) in the district of Antioch) and the other situated on the southern edge (Arabic dialect of Birzeit in Ramallah) of the Syrian dialect expansion, would display common linguistic affinities regarding the etymology and the meaning. The study aims to explore the supposed common etymological affinities. Keywords: Arabic dialects, Agricultural terms, Etymology, Antioch, Ramallah
Description: comparison of dialects, Ramallah and Antakia
