SL Text 8: Had I a sucking-pig
Ere he had grown as big
Even as a pint bottle or a rolling-pin,
He should have learned to be
Faithful and true to thee,
Yes, his first squeak should be
"Comrade Napoleon" (Animal Farm, 1970: 58).

TL Text 8:
لو كان لدي خنزير رضيع،
فقبل أن ينمو ويكبر
في حجم الزجاجة او مرقاقة العجين،
فلا بد أن يتعلم
ليكون صادقا ومخلصا لك........
أجل صرخته الاولى يجب أن تكون
أيها الرفيق نابليون ! (مزرعة الحيوانات، الفصل الثامن، ص 152).

والاسوأ أنها أخذت "تيكلر" معها .
حين سمعت هذا الخبر الفظيع ، أحكمت اغلاق الزر الوحيد الموجود في معطفي جيدا ونظرت الى النيران نظرة يملؤها الاكتئابز لقد كانت "تيكلر" عبارة عن عصا من الخيرزان طرفها مصقل بالشمع، مصممة لأضرب بها على أي جزء في جسدي بسهولة (الامال العظيمة، الفصل الثاني ، ص 26). In the example (9) above, When Pip returns from the graveyard, Joe tells him he is in trouble. His sister (Mrs. Joe) has been out many times looking for Pip, and the last time she went out with the tickler.

Tickler is the cane which Mrs. Joe uses to inflict punishment on Pip. The actual name, tickler, conjures an image of a child laughing as he is tickled by an instrument and "tickled as an adjective" means happy and pleased. Here the pun is based on a paranomy (slight differences in both spelling and sounds). The example involves sound similarities between the "tickler" and "tickled". In Arabic, the pun used above is called مضارع"" "", i.e., words linked with each other on the basis of closeness and similarities of sounds. The pun involve sound similarities between the words "tickler and tickled". In Arabic the translator translates "tickler" as "تيلكر " and on other place as "عصا الخيرزان" (English kind of cane) while "tickled" is translated as لأضرب"" (English to beat). In the Arabic translation, the paranomic relationship that exists between these two items is clearly lost. Therefore, the translation strategy that has been used by her is pun to non-pun. To give a similar sense:

"لقد خرجت السيدة "جو" تبحث عنك اثنتي عشرة مرة يا "بيب". وقد خرجت الان لتجعل منها ثلاثة عشرة مرة"
-"هل فعلت حقا؟"
قال "جو": نعم يا بيب. والاسوأ أنها أخذت "العصا الواخزة" معها .
حين سمعت هذا الخبر الفظيع ، أحكمت اغلاق الزر الوحيد الموجود في معطفي جيدا ونظرت الى النيران نظرة يملؤها الاكتئابز لقد كانت "تيكلر" عبارة عن العصا الواخزة طرفها مصقل بالشمع، مصممة لتوخزني بها على أي جزء في جسدي
