أريد نسخة من قاموس Arabic Military Dictionary , edited by Ernest Kay 1986
فهل يمكن من يمتلكه من أعضاء المنتدى أن يسمح لي بالحصول على نسخة منه؟
لقد توقف طبعه الآن وثمنه في مواقع الكتب القديمة يتجاوز الخمسمائة جنيه.
شكرا على المساعدة

Another Dictionary Aug 31, 2008

السلام عليكم،
إذا قمتِ بزيارة لدار الهيئة العامة المصرية للكتاب أو مكتبة ابن سينا سوف تجدي قاموساً عسكرياً تربو عدد صفحات على 990 صفحة، وعنوانه

The Modern Dictionary of Military Terms
A Comprehensive Military Encyclopedia
قاموس المصطلحات العسكرية الحديث
موسوعة عسكرية شاملة
إنجليزي - عربي

تأليف العميد عصام محمد فؤاد

وكان ثمنه على ما أذكر وقت شرائي له في يناير الماضي هو 100 جنيه، وقد اشتريته من فرع دار الهيئة العامة المصرية للكتاب في الجيزة (أسفل الكوبري)

وإذا بحثتي عنه في الجوجل سوف تجدي بعض تفاصيل عنه، خاصة في موقع مكتبة سينا فهي التي أصدرته.

Thanks Sep 1, 2008

Thanks for all your replies but, you know, i need this one in particular, the one by Maher al kayyali is available and so is the military encyclopedia. I went through the google link before and found only a few pages.I know it is available at Bibliotheca Alexandrina and AUC library but of course i can't photocopy it.
Thanks
Rania

Another bilingual military dictionary Sep 3, 2008

Greetings... ahalan wa sahalan...

Kayyali's military dictionary is OK, as is the computer-generated dictionary edited by Ernest Kay.

Another well-done and more-recent dictionary of military terms is:

The Illustrated Military Dictionary
(al-mu3jem al-3skarii al-muSawwer) المعجم العسكري المصوّر

Author: Sherif al-Hadary

Publisher data: Madbouli Bookstore, Cairo, Egypt, 2004

Pages: 1108 pages (E > A entries and an extensive Arabic-English glossary).

(This book includes an illustrated supplement of weapons systems in the back.)

The author (a now-retired Colonel in the Egyptian Air Force) appears to have taken the US Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) "Dictionary of Military Terms" and rendered its terms and definitions into their Arabic equivalents. Biographical data indicate the author attended several military schools in the US (USAF and USMC) and UK.

Hope this helps. Khair, in shaa' Allah

Kay's computer-generated military dictionary Sep 9, 2008

Greetings again... ahalan wa sahalan...

Thanks for your note.

As best I understand and per the copies I have seen, that computer-generated military dictionary (edited by Kay) is only available in printed hard copy.

May I mention another reference worth your considering if you plan to do a lot of military-related translating: "Brassey's Multilingual Military Dictionary."

Two editions of that Brassey's publication exist:

1. The original 1987 edition covers five languages, including Arabic (printed in UK). Available online from various vendors.

2. 2005 edition with six languages, including Persian (Farsi) (revised and printed by Imam Hossein University in Iran). Available from several bookstore in the US and UK.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

While there are a very few online bilingual specialized (i.e., military & security-related topics) glossaries, they seem very awkward and cumbersome to access, search, and use.

Hope this helps.

Khair, in shaa' Allah.
