However, abbreviations in the Tajik language also found their place and the corresponding modules.</p> SHARIPOV DURANDESH Copyright (c) 2023 JETA (Journal of English Teaching and Applied Linguistic) 2023-06-30 2023-06-30 4 1 25 35 10.52217/jeta.v4i1.1237 WORD GROUPING ACTIVITY TO IMPROVE STUDENTS' VOCABULARY MASTERY: A CLASSROOM ACTION RESEARCH https://jurnal.stkippgribl.ac.id/index.php/jeta/article/view/1234 <p>This research aimed to improve students' vocabulary mastery through Word Grouping Activity.

Unfortunately, the translators lay more emphasis on the translation of poetry; there should be more research regarding the particular problems of translating literary poetry. One explanation of this could be the fact that the status of poetry is considered higher, but it is more possibly due to the notable flawed notion that the novels, essays, fiction etc. possess a simple structure compared to that of a poem and is thus easier to translate. However, many debates have been organized over when to translate, when to apply the close local equivalent, when to invent a new word by translating clearly, and when to copy.</p> BOBOEV LOIQ SAMIEVICH Copyright (c) 2023 JETA (Journal of English Teaching and Applied Linguistic) 2023-06-30 2023-06-30 4 1 54 63 10.52217/jeta.v4i1.1236
