Abstract:
This research aims to examine the linguistic materials of direction and guide signs in Hamedan city. These signs are highly efficient communication tools and represent the cultural symbols of society. To achieve this aim, a hundred images of these signs were randomly collected in Hamedan city, and their linguistic materials were analyzed from three perspectives of writing, translation, and adaptation. The results illustrate that only 38% of the linguistic materials in urban signs and guides are correct. However, in 25% of cases, these signs have adaptation problems, while in 21% of cases, translation errors are observed, and in 16% of cases, there are writing errors. Therefore, correcting and revising these signs and guides requires review and improvement.This research aims to examine the linguistic materials of direction and guide signs in Hamedan city.
