Abstract: The major issue addressed here is the fact that Luganda Derivative morphology(LDM)has much to learn from Arabic Derivative Morphology(ADM), because both Luganda and Arabic use similar morphological arts for word expansion. Although Arabic lexical-arts are closer to that of Luganda, Luganda has learnt very little from Arabic language in terms of vocabulary application. Thus, Luganda still suffers from inadequate morphology control upon word meanings. The authors observe that most of Luganda lexical concepts are limited to traditional expressions other than consistent scientific concepts as it is witnessed in Arabic language. Thus, Luganda activities can hardly reach modern linguistic competence that deems necessary for meaningful developments. This problem has lead to a phenomenon that Ugandans researchers and translators find difficulties in deciding on Luganda Arabic lexical equivalents.
