Outcomes

When investigated in Cairo, BLOCKBUSTING required explicitation which would express its deceptive (or misleading) nature in the depreciation of real estate value (lit: trickling of real estate).

Technique

Participants yielded a translation by selecting an Arabic word which is narrower (or more specific) in meaning than the Source Text word (a Source Language unit of a more general meaning is replaced by a Target Language unit of a more special meaning).
