The adaptation of the terms ‘laicism’, ‘secularism’ and ‘laïcité’ in Arabic
This article intends to study the adaptation of the terms laicism, secularism and laïcité in Arabic and the rendering of these three western terms into a single Arabic term: calmāniyyah. The paper intends also to trace the etymology of calmāniyyah first through a scrutiny of its original concepts and significations in western languages, and then describe its incorporation into Arabic, its development and the development of its significations in this language.
Keywords: secularization, laicization, Arab World, Muslim World, Syrian Christians., laicism, secularism, laïcité, profanity
