Blending in Arabic and English
Journal of University of Babylon,

AbstractThis paper describes the word-formation process of blending in Arabic and English in order to point out the similarities and differences involved in the usage of such a process. It concludes that this process functions in similar ways in the two languages, though it has a wider application in English than Arabic. Another important conclusion is that in Arabic a blend may involve the contraction of three, four, or five words or even a whole sentence; whereas it is largely limited to the fusion of two successive words in English.
