Through the process, it is possible to determine the areas exposed to water erosion and its severity, and then put in place protective measures to reduce its focus and mitigate its effects. Soil erosion is exacerbated by heavy rainfall after a long period of dry seasons, steep slopes, intensive cultivation, and a lack of appropriate soil conservation measures. This study aimed to apply the RUSLE model to estimate the potential annual rate of erosion in the southwestern basins of Akre mountain and determine its levels in order to determine the initial priorities for management and conservation practices the results of applying the model showed that the potential annual erosion rate in the study area ranged between 0.02 - 278 (tons/ ‎hectares/ year) and a rate of 20.7 (tons / hectares / year). In general, about 52.8% of total study area has a level of slight-moderate ‎erosion, and that about 38.4% of the study area was affected by moderate-severe erosion, while the area of the severe-very severe ‎erosion category amounted to more than 8.9%, which is represented the lands of It is mountainous and their slopes, with an average slope ‎of more than 18 degrees, as in the mountains of Akre and Denarta.‎</p> 2022-12-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Zanco Journal of Humanity Sciences The Kurds in The Encyclopedia of Islam (Method and Information Sources (132-656) (750-1258) 2022-05-25T08:38:25+00:00 Hakeem Ahmed Mambakr Tara Mohammed Khdir <p>.

Therefore, no matter how much we try to highlight the role of the economic factor, it has an overlap with several other factors. In this research, the factors of the collapse of the Ottoman Empire were divided into external and internal factors. In the paragraph of external factors came the nature of the countries that surrounded the Ottoman Empire, and the relationship with it was characterized by hostility, and continuous wars. Geographical explorations came with the support of the Church to work to negatively affect the trade routes linking the Ottoman Empire, and its geographical depth with gold mines in Africa, as well as the leakage of gold from the Ottoman Empire to Europe after it was replaced by silver coming from the New World after the discovery of the Americas. The role of foreign privileges came to cast a shadow over the internal interference in the affairs of the state, and finally came the role of external loans to tie the state in great shackles and to pave the way for foreign countries to control the economic system in the states of the state Ottoman. As for the internal factors, the role of the priority of militarism in the Ottoman Empire emerged in front of the backwardness of its economic system, which did not create support for the process of capitalist accumulation, and came to consolidate the character of artisanal production, and the occurrence of many financial and monetary crises, and the conflict between the Janissary band and the sultans of the state was present in the research, where it formed A bleeding wound that squandered the state's energies and resources and plunged it into internal conflicts. Finally, the army's failure to follow up on the technological and organizational developments that characterize modern armies.</p> 2022-12-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Zanco Journal of Humanity Sciences The Effect of Using Kagan's Structure in Knowledge Achievement and Self-esteem in the Kurdish Literature by Eighth-Grade Basic Students 2022-03-29T08:12:52+00:00 Srwa Alaaddin Omer Chiman Hamza Drwish <p>The aim of this study is to find out the effect of using Kagan's structure in knowledge achievement and self-esteem in the Kurdish literature by the eighth-grade basic students.</p> <p> The researchers relied on the balanced design which includes two groups, the experimental group which they study through Kagan's structure, and the control group which they study normally. The research population includes eighth-grade students of basic schools at the centre of Erbil in 2021-2022. The researchers chose Bamok Basic School, they selected two groups randomly, the students were distributed into two groups; Group A was the control group which they were 22 students, and group B was the experimental group which they were 21 students. The researchers found out the balance between both groups from the variables (student age in months, education level of students' parents, results of Kurdish-language subject in the previous year, self-esteem scale).</p> <p> The research tools are self-esteem scale that the researchers relied on the scale (Halo, 2014) which included 46 items and divided into (3) alternatives; the second tool was knowledge achievement test, for this, they relied on the achievement test (Muhammad, 2015) the question types were (multiple choice, true or false) The number of questions was 28. The researchers verified both research tools by giving them to a number of experts and professionals, as well as the stability of both tools was achieved by retest in which the stability scale in self-esteem was (0.78) and the stability of the test was (0.80). After implementing the tools and extracting the results using T.test, the researchers came to the following conclusions:</p> <ol> <li>There is a significant difference at the level of (0.05) between the average score on self-esteem scale in pre- and post-test of the experimental group, which they study the subject by following Kagan’s structure.</li> <li>There is a significant difference at the level of (0.05) between the average score on self-esteem scale in pre- and post-test of the control group, which they study the subject normally.</li> <li>There is a significant difference at the level of (0.05) between the average difference score on self-esteem scale in post-test of the experimental group, which they study the Kurdish Literature by following Kagan's structure, and the average score on self-esteem of the control group they study the subject normally.</li> <li>There is a significant difference at the level of (0.05) between the average difference score of the experimental group, which they study the subject by following Kagan's structure, and the average score of the control group which they study the subject normally in knowledge achievement test.</li> </ol> <p> In the light of the results, the researchers presented some conclusions and recommendations and suggestions that generally emphasize on the use of new methods, including the Kagan's structure in teaching Kurdish Literature and building self-esteem in students, as well as the researchers gave some suggestions.</p> 2022-12-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Zanco Journal of Humanity Sciences Irony in Kurdish Short short Stories 2022-06-12T18:36:35+00:00 Sangar Nadhim Hussein Rezan Saleh Mawlood <p>This article, entitled “Irony in Kurdish Short short Stories”, is basically a section of a doctoral dissertation, which has been selected for publication and consists of an introduction, a theme and several discussions, and finally the results, achieved by the researcher, have been presented.</p> <p>At the beginning of the article, the concept, role, importance, and function of irony as well as the types of irony have been discussed in a good theoretical manner.

Moreover, three common verbs are selected which are (play, go, and do). The study attempts to find out each sport game from the two types (individual, and team games) and their collocated verbs (the selected verbs). After, the data were analyzed, it has been declared that most of the sport games collocated with the verb (play). Then, the second verb which most of the sport games collocated with is the verb (go). Lastly, the least sport games collocated with verb (do). Finally, the nature of the sport games will determine their verb collocations.</p> 2022-12-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Zanco Journal of Humanity Sciences A Minimalist Analysis of the Subjunctive Mood in the Clausal Structure of Central Kurdish 2022-06-27T09:34:24+00:00 Azad Hasan Fatah Rawand Anwar Mahmood <p>This paper aims to shed light on the morphosyntactic characteristics and distribution of the subjunctive mood in Central Kurdish (CK henceforth). To achieve this, the study adopts Chomsky’s (1995) Minimalist Program. In addition to the data from previous studies, further data are provided as the authors are native speakers of the language under study. The proposed hypotheses are that an inflectional projection namely Mood Phrase (henceforth MP) is the locus of mood markers (henceforth Mm) that is C-commanded by Negation Phrase (henceforth NegP) and in turn C-Commands Tense Phrase (henceforth TP). Further, the portmanteau prefix <em>de- </em>simultaneously functions as the indicative Mm, positive polarity marker (PPM), and imperfective aspect maker (IAM) in both past and present. The data demonstrate that in CK the subjunctive is not in conformance with Stowell’s (1993) classification to subjunctives and that CK utilizes mood as means to express <em>Modality</em> rather than modal verbs thus being in line with Palmer’s (2003, p.3) argument: “languages have either mood or modality, but not both”.</p> 2022-12-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Zanco Journal of Humanity Sciences "They don't imagine how we live over here": A Study of Black Migrant's Sense of Ambivalence and In-betweenness in Winsome Pinnock's Leave Taking 2022-07-19T22:36:28+00:00 Jwan Adil Mohammed Snoor Ismaeel Mahmud <p>Since the 1950s, the migratory experience and cross-cultural fusion have become a subject of different social, political, and cultural discussions. The settlement of immigrants in Britain and the continuous arrival of asylum seekers from former colonies of the British Empire have sparked the investigation of identity crisis, ambivalence, assimilation, and diversity that have accordingly been reflected in literary works of Black British Diaspora.</p> <p>Winsome Pinnock, a black British dramatist, is one of several blacks and Asian women who have written plays that reflect the issues of first- and second-generation migrants in Britain. She explores how immigrants adjust to life in Britain in her play <em>Leave Taking</em>, at times rejecting, at other times embracing, the memory of their homeland. The study attempts to analyze the sense of in-betweenness and ambivalence experienced by the first and second-generation migrants in the light of the postcolonial theories of Homi K. Bhabha, Edward Said, and Frantz Fanon. It argues that as diasporic subjects, the characters are stranded in between two worlds- the homeland and host country. Moreover, it concludes that the characters under the impact of cultural interaction become alien and foreigners in host country as well in their homeland.</p> 2022-12-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Zanco Journal of Humanity Sciences
