The role of meaning in past-tense inflection: Evidence from polysemy and denominal derivation

Shoba Bandi-Rao, Gregory L. Murphy
2007 Cognition  
To gain a new source of insight into this debate, we compared the central senses of verbs to extended verbal senses and to denominal senses.  ...  In Experiment 1, participants rated the semantic similarity of the extended senses of polysemous verbs and denominal verbs to their central senses.  ...  After two days of incessant rain, the sun has finally broken through the clouds. I like it when the sun shines brightly. I can go to the beach and relax.  ...

Real-Time Nuisance Fault Detection in Photovoltaic Generation Systems Using a Fine Tree Classifier

Collin Barker, Sam Cipkar, Tyler Lavigne, Cameron Watson, Maher Azzouz
2021 Sustainability  
The testbed is capable of streaming in data from a separate source, which emulates a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) or weather station, then classifies the data in real-time and displays  ...  This results in long stretches of downtime for troubleshooting as data are mined manually for possible fault causes, and consequently, cost thousands of dollars in lost revenue and maintenance.  ...  The data agent makes only POST requests to the server as it only commits data autonomously. Operators make GET requests to view the data.  ...
