Abstract
This paper aims at finding out what opportunities discourse analysis can offer in teaching translation. Specifically, it attempts to determine what areas of discourse analysis are relevant to teaching Arabic-English translation at college level as well as to identify what translation instructors and students can borrow from other related disciplines and make use of them in the classroom. A critical review of published theories and models was done to examine the main concepts in this regards. The paper concludes with emphasizing the role of discourse analysis in the shift from target text being purely equivalency-oriented text to a dynamic-oriented text.
