Abstract

The main concern of this study is to show whether there is a possibility that the interpreters of the Glorious Qur'an can convey the same effect of the relative clauses as it is manipulated in the source language. The current study aims at pointing out the grammatical functions of relative clauses which occur in the Glorious Qur'an with some clarification in an attempt to give a better understanding of them in both languages. The study hypothesizes that renderings which use relative clauses will convey meaning more clearly than those which do not. Thus, this study assures that renderings which use relative clauses (henceforth Rcs) are more successful in conveying the meaning clearly than those which do not. Arabic relative clauses are noticed in a different way which affects the functions of these clauses in the target language. The three renderings which have been selected in this study are incapable conveying exactly the cases of gender and number as they are found in the source language
