On the effect of code regularity on comprehension

Ahmad Jbara, Dror G. Feitelson
2014 Proceedings of the 22nd International Conference on Program Comprehension - ICPC 2014  
These results indicate that regularity is another attribute of code that should be taken into account in the context of studying the code's complexity and comprehension.  ...  But such metrics just count syntactic features, and ignore details of the code's global structure, which may also have an effect on understandability.  ...  Our focus is on establishing the effect of regularity on comprehension. In this we emphasize the interest in cognitive and human aspects of software development (as in e.g.  ...

How Programmers Read Regular Code: A Controlled Experiment Using Eye Tracking

Ahmad Jbara, Dror G. Feitelson
2015 2015 IEEE 23rd International Conference on Program Comprehension  
Regular code, which includes repetitions of the same basic pattern, has been shown to have an effect on code comprehension: a regular function can be just as easy to comprehend as an irregular one with  ...  To verify and quantify this effect, we use eye tracking to measure the time and effort spent reading and understanding regular code.  ...  Acknowledgments This research was supported by the ISRAEL SCIENCE FOUNDATION (grant no. 407/13).  ...

Integrated methods of teaching listening and speaking

Kh Djoldasbaeva
2022 Ренессанс в парадигме новаций образования и технологий в XXI веке  
Due to the lack of time English teachers have per week for their subject, the best way to practice listening and speaking is integrating them.  ...  According to Bueno, Madrid and McLaren: "Listening is important for speaking because it establishes the good basis for successful communicative exchanges (2006:344).  ...  Therefore, teachers need to be prepared on how to design effective comprehension strategies and how to teach these strategies to their students.  ...

Action-Sentence Compatibility: The Role of Action Effects and Timing

Christiane Diefenbach, Martina Rieger, Cristina Massen, Wolfgang Prinz
2013 Frontiers in Psychology  
Concurrently activated representations in sentence comprehension and action planning can lead to both priming and interference, which is discussed in the context of the theory of event coding.  ...  These results provide evidence that the comprehension of action sentences involves the activation of representations of action effects.  ...  We also thank Arthur Glenberg for helpful comments on an earlier version of this manuscript.  ...

Switching Languages, Switching Palabras (Words): An Electrophysiological Study of Code Switching

Eva M. Moreno, Kara D. Federmeier, Marta Kutas
2002 Brain and Language  
Overall, the electrophysiological data suggest that for some speakers in some contexts, the processing of a code switch may actually be less costly than the processing of an unexpected within-language  ...  Code switches, by contrast, elicited an increased negativity over left fronto-central sites in the regular nonidiomatic sentences (250-450 ms) and a large posterior positivity (450-850 ms) in both context  ...  These effects varied as a function of the type of context (regular vs idiomatic), as shown in Fig. 2 .  ...
