Outcomes

When investigated in Beirut, GERRYMANDERING required explicitation which could express its political meaning without reference to its etymology (attributed to former governor of Massachusetts Elbridge Gerry).

Technique

Participants yielded a translation by substituting the term with another in the Arabic language having the same meaning (which occurs when a Source Text word does not exist in the Target Language).
