Each of these periods has its own characteristics. Generally, Kurdish literature has been widely influenced by the literature of its neighboring nations, especially Persian literature. This is the reason why Kurdish literature is generally evaluated in terms of stylistics based on its characteristics and based on the stylistic coordinates of ancient Persian literature.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>According to the history of Kurdish literature, ancient Kurdish literature is divided into four periods: Northern, Middle, Southern and Gorani. <br>The Middle Ages, during the twelfth century, the poet Nali and his followers, founded the basics of a poetry school which is known as Baban School of Poetry, and are known as the first generation of this period, they followed Khorasani, Iraqi, and Indian poetic styles. <br>But the poets of the second generation of the Baban poetic school followed the style of literary return. The style of literary return emerged in Iran in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries and influenced Kurdish literature. <br>Vafai is one of the famous poets of the second generation of Baban School of Poetry. The current research through using descriptive and analytical research methods, will investigate the influence of literary return style and the characteristics of this style in the poems of Vafai.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Farhad Azeez Hasan Hiwa Nuraddin Aziz Copyright (c) 2020 Farhad Azeez Hasan, Hiwa Nuraddin Aziz https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ 2020-12-30 2020-12-30 5 4 1 16 10.32410/huj-10336 The Role of suffix /_er/ to make up professional noun (derivation and compound) in Kurdish Language https://huj.uoh.edu.iq/index.php/HUJ/article/view/huj-10337 <p style="direction: rtl;"><br />ئەم توێژینەوەیە هەوڵێکە بۆ شیکارکردنى لایەنێکى گرنگیى مۆرفۆلۆجی زمانى کوردی، ئەویش بە خستنەڕووى ڕۆڵ و بەبەرهەمیی مۆرفیمى وشەداڕێژەرى /-ەر/ ، لە سازکردنى ناوی پیشەیی لە زمانى کوردیدا، لەگەڵ دەرخستنی هەندێ لایەنى گرنگ و شاراوە لە سازکردنى ناوى پیشەیی داڕێژراو لێکدراودا، کە سەرچاوەى دروستبوونى بەشێک لەم وشانە، ڕەگى کردارەو بەشەکەی تریشیان چاوگەکانی زمانى کوردییە، کە هەریەکەیان لە شێوەى ناوی دیاردەیەک، ڕووداوێک، حاڵەتێک، ...هتد، خۆیان دەنوێنن، وەکو (کردن ، دان، بردن ، هێنان ، خستن، ...هتد) ئەوەى هەڵە مۆرفۆلۆجییەکەى دروستکردووە چاوگى (کردن)ە ((کە لە بەشی دووەمى ئەم توێژینەوەیە ئاماژە بەو سەرچاوانە دراوە))، زۆرێک لە زمانەوانەکان پێیانوایە (کەر)، لە (نانکەر) و (یاریکەر)دا پاشگرە، ئەمەیش پێچەوانەى یاساکانى مۆرفۆلۆجی دەوەستێتەوە چونکە ئەم توێژینەوەیە ئەوەى سەلماندووە، کە سەرچاوەى دروستکردنى وشەی (نانکەر) لە (نانکردن)ەوەیە کە بەم شێوەیە سازبووە (نان+کە+/-ەر/ = نانکەر).<br /><br /></p> Othman Karim Abdalrahim Copyright (c) 2020 Othman Karim Abdalrahim https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-12-30 2020-12-30 5 4 17 26 10.32410/huj-10337 The Abdullah Peshew’s Poem (Le Destm Dea): the Psychological Motivations According to the Psychoanalytic Theory Perspective https://huj.uoh.edu.iq/index.php/HUJ/article/view/huj-10338 <p>“The Abdullah Peshew’s Poem (Le Destm Dea): the Psychological Motivations According to the Psychoanalytic <br>Theory Perspective”. <br>The present research paper can be considered as an academic and scientific attempt to bring out the reasons and the psychological motivations that lead (Abdullah Peshew) to write his poem (Le Destm Dea- I can). However, this research presents an analysis for three important psychological motivations: nervousness and actions, melancholic, and sexual repression. In addition, this research tries to shed a light on these psychological motivations through analyzing poem text and its content according to the psychological theory. Accordingly, the present research paper is aimed at showing the poet’s real negative or positive situation in the (Le Destm Dea ) towards the woman.</p> <p>The research is divided into an introduction and three sections. The first section is dealt with the relationship between the psychology and literature in general, and psychology and poetry in particular. The second section is dealt with the emotional life of the poet and its reflection on his poetry before (Le Destm Dea). The third section has been customized to study and analyze the poem according to the psychological theory. Finally, the results have been presented with the references at the end of the research.</p> Omed Rahem Shamsalden Omar Abdulkarem Qadir Copyright (c) 2020 Omed Rahem Shamsalden, Omar Abdulkarem Qadir https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ 2020-12-30 2020-12-30 5 4 27 42 10.32410/huj-10338 ‘Parody’ and ‘Play within a Play’ in William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night https://huj.uoh.edu.iq/index.php/HUJ/article/view/huj-10339 <p>The research investigates aspects of parody and ‘ play within a play’ in William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night ( 1601-1602). One important issue to be investigated is the parodic relation between two interrelated plots in this romantic comedy. The main focus is on the play’s subplot with regard to the aspects of ‘parody’ and ‘ play within a play’. The play’s minor-plot, as the research demonstrates, parodically reflects on the play’s main themes and dramatic action. There is also a striking similarity and parodic relation between the two female protagonists in both interrelated plots with regard to female protagonists’ witty usage of language and deceptive schemes. Such parodic relationship reaffirms the play’s essential message in respect to women’s quest for individuality and self-hood. This is in accord with Shakespeare’s humanist and feminist perspective with regard to woman’s right in determining her own destiny. The current research is significant, for it shed lights on unexplored aspects in Shakespeare’s <br>romantic comedies such as ‘Parody’ and ‘Play within a Play’</p> Kawa Othman Omer Ahmed Shirin Sadallah Rasheed Copyright (c) 2020 SettingsKawa Othman Omer Ahmed, Shirin Sadallah Rasheed https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ 2020-12-30 2020-12-30 5 4 43 56 10.32410/huj-10339 A Cognitive Semantic Study of selected English and Kurdish Proverbs in the Light of Conceptual Blending Theory https://huj.uoh.edu.iq/index.php/HUJ/article/view/huj-10340 <p>Despite of having many proverbs in both English and Kurdish languages with the same image and conveying the same message, there are, at the same time, many proverbs in both languages that convey the same message with different images. This study is an attempt to find such proverbs in both languages to show the similarities that are found and how the Conceptual Blending Theory (CBT) works through analyzing the selected proverbs according to the mental spaces of the theory. The results of analyzing the proverbs according to CB has shown that despite of having differences in context, structure and culture, there are proverbs in different languages with different elements that give the same message. Depending on the analysis of the results, it is concluded that CBT is applicable to the analysis of proverbs in different languages and proverbs are universal phenomenon, with high communicative and instructive power. It is also concluded that there are proverbs in different languages that have the same proposition.</p> Nyan Kamil Ghafour Copyright (c) 2020 Nyan Kamil Ghafour https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ 2020-12-30 2020-12-30 5 4 57 70 10.32410/huj-10340 Challenges Experienced by Kurdish EFL Student-teachers during their Teaching Practicum https://huj.uoh.edu.iq/index.php/HUJ/article/view/huj-10341 <p>The aim of this study is to investigate the challenges EFL student-teachers experienced during their six-week teaching practicum.

Moreover, the historical method used in those printed books are also investigated together with the biography of the authors and the historians. For this purpose, this study discusses those 6 books that were printed in Baghdad and Kirkuk, and those 8 books that were printed in Sulaimani. The historeans were peoples of different backgrounds in Kurdistan including politicians, academics, lawyers, religious people, school teachers, poets, and scholars. This indicates the desire of writing history by peoples of different backgrounds in the Kurdish society at that time. The academic and scientific quality and the methodology employed in writing history books at that time seem to be different due to the fact that authors and historians were at different academic levels and that had made the books to be different in writing and adopting research methodologies from one atuthor to another.</p> Bashdar Omar Rafeeq Mohammed Abdullah Kakasur Copyright (c) 2020 Bashdar Omar Rafeeq, Mohammed Abdullah Kakasur https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ 2020-12-30 2020-12-30 5 4 115 132 10.32410/huj-10344 The role of Shahrazor and Shahrazorian from before and after Mongolian occupy period (The historical comparison research from social, economy and science sides) https://huj.uoh.edu.iq/index.php/HUJ/article/view/huj-10345 <p>This study is concerned with the Shahrazur region, and it consists of two topics: The first section contains reference to the geographical location of the Shahrazor region and the role of this region in the events surrounding it, which made this area a subject of interest for the central authority during the era of the Abbasid Caliphate, in addition to that, aspects were discussed. The social aspects of Sahl Shahrazor and the presentation of the basic pillars on which the society was based, and this study was not without shortcomings about the changes that occurred in the region as a result of the spread of the Islamic religion in it, and referring to the scientific aspects of the Shahrazor region and the people's interest in science in that period.<br>As for the second topic, I explored in depth the historical sources based on the economic, social and scientific effects of the Mongol attacks on the entire region, especially the collapse of the economic fundamentals, the displacement of people from their homes and the demilitarization of the region, with an explanation of the changing lifestyle of the community and the emergence of the region’s role in scientific fields And through this study, and this topic in particular, we are looking for the reasons that lie behind the people of Sharazur retaining their scientific roles and standing during their displacement and being subjected to forced migration, compared to the time when they were exposed to the Mongolian campaigns.<br>In conclusion, we make a comparison between the Shahrazor region in terms of geography, and with the region’s population in terms of the moral as a prominent figure during those two historical periods.</p> Sangar Abdalla Rasul Hussein Abdulrahman Hussein Taha Rajab Hamad Copyright (c) 2020 SettingsSangar Abdalla Rasul, SettingsHussein Abdulrahman Hussein, SettingsTaha Rajab Hamad https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ 2020-12-30 2020-12-30 5 4 133 142 10.32410/huj-10345 The Mandate to Consider Grievances (Al-Mazalim) in the First Islamic Eras to the End of the First Abbasid Era(232AH/846AD) https://huj.uoh.edu.iq/index.php/HUJ/article/view/huj-10346 <p>In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful<br>The Generous Allah has sent the Islam so as to make people live happily. One of the purposes of Islam is to establish justice among the members of society by establishing the basics of justice in the courts, since people have contact with one another, they face problems and sometimes the problem happens between a normal person in the society and the first responsible person. Because of any reason the Governor cannot work on the case and decide on it. So, it is necessary for the first responsible person who is Khalifa or Wali to see the case. For this purpose and for the solution of such problems Islam has established the State of Seeing the Oppression in which Khalifa or Wali himself sees the oppression. To clarify this subject and to shed light on how it has worked in the beginning of the first Islamic Eras till the time of First Abass , this research is an attempt to shed light on this important subject of Islamic Justice and could be beneficial and people get benefit from it . The Era of justice is a bright history in the civilized history of Islam which has been put down 1442 years before and has been applied, even nowadays the international court cannot compete with it because to see injustices by Khalifa and Wali in Islamic country proves that all the members in the society live equally under the shadow of justice and those who make mistakes are all punished in the same way</p> Hussein M. salih Copyright (c) 2020 Hussein M. salih https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ 2020-12-30 2020-12-30 5 4 143 163 10.32410/huj-10346 The Usage of Energy for Conditioning Buildings to Achieve Human Comfort by Using Olgyay Bioclimatic Chart https://huj.uoh.edu.iq/index.php/HUJ/article/view/huj-10347 <p>Climate has a great and direct impact on humans and quality of life. Humans, in turn, get accommodated to their surroundings through architecture, clothes and food as well as using their resources for cooling and heating in order to live comfortably. <br>The different branches of climate studies include sunlight, temperature, humidity, wind, and precipitation. Each of these branches impacts the levels of human comfort at different rates. Temperature and humidity are the most significant of the contributing factors. Research has proven that the threshold desired for temperature in order for humans to be comfortable differs according to their location. The lowest temperatures for comfort are 15 – 18 °C and the highest are 25 – 28 °C, as long as humidity remains below 50%. Generally 18 – 25 °C is considered ideal for human comfort.<br>The study area’s climate is characterised by drastic differences in temperature according to seasons, months, and even between night and day. This is important as it effects how humans experience comfort. <br>This paper will determine the times of year which are comfortable and those that require extra efforts to be comfortable enough within buildings. Olgyay bioclimatic charts will be utilised in order to find these periods. This method will be applied to six different stations within the study area.</p> Pakiza Aziz Said Soran Hama amen Ahmad Copyright (c) 2020 SettingsPakiza Aziz Said, SettingsSoran Hama amen Ahmad https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ 2020-12-30 2020-12-30 5 4 164 181 10.32410/huj-10347 The legal extension of the real estate lease contract https://huj.uoh.edu.iq/index.php/HUJ/article/view/huj-10348 <p>The legal extension of the real estate lease contract is a legal principle that allows the tenant to remain occupied by the property after the lease term ends without the lessor’s will.
