The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Well-Formedness of Live Sequence Charts [chapter]

Bernd Westphal, Tobe Toben
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The Life Sequence Chart (LSC) language is a conservative extension of the well-known visual formalism of Message Sequence Charts.  ...  To this end we provide an exact characterisation of well-formedness of LSCs in terms of concrete syntax as well as in terms of the semantics-giving automata.  ...  Instead of refining Def. 9 to separate three cases, the well-formed and thus structurally satisfiable LSCs ("good"), the non well-formed and structurally insatisfiable LSCs ("bad"), and the non well-formed  ...

MICROCOPY RESOLUTION TEST CHART "TIONAL BUREAU Of STAND URDS-1963-A Wishful Suppression and Mitigation: say GOOD topics juxtapose NEUTRAL topics with GOOD ones in enhancer phrases leave out BAD topics  ...  The three affects GOOD, BAD, and BAD combine to produce GOOD for Jim in STATE-11, causing it to be enhanced too.  ...  Thus, since Kennedy's outcome is the outcome of a primary and it is greater than Carter's outcome, the two form an instance of BEATing.  ...

Six Septembers: Mathematics for the Humanist

Patrick Juola, Stephen Ramsay
2017 Zea Books  
Well-formedness is something like the "grammar" of propositional logic.  ...  But what is the sum of the infinitely long set of numbers in the full sequence? Patrick argues: "Well, I can re-write the sequence as Of course, we're both wrong.  ...  He lived x years, and he also lived x 6 + x 12 + x 7 + 5 + x 2 + 4 years.  ...

Each of the ways of knowing, moreover, has operating principles of its own and its own criteria of well-formedness' (p. 11).  ...  'And if you do it well?' Well, I suppose everyone likes to have a bit ofa boost and 1 think it gives you that bit ofextra 'yes, that wasn 't too bad' kind offeeling. or maybe out of politeness.  ...

Pretrained Transformers for Text Ranking: BERT and Beyond

Andrew Yates, Rodrigo Nogueira, Jimmy Lin
2021 Proceedings of the 14th ACM International Conference on Web Search and Data Mining  
The combination of transformers and self-supervised pretraining has, without exaggeration, revolutionized the fields of natural language processing (NLP), information retrieval (IR), and beyond.  ...  In the context of text ranking, these models produce high quality results across many domains, tasks, and settings.  ...  Although transformer architectures and pretraining techniques are recent innovations, many aspects of how they are applied to text ranking are relatively well understood and represent mature techniques  ...

Machine translation for everyone: Empowering users in the age of artificial intelligence [article]

Dorothy Kenny
2022 Zenodo  
At the same time, MT is promoted as a technology that will change the face of professional translation, but the technical opacity of contemporary approaches, and the legal and ethical issues they raise  ...  It also shows how users can make the most of MT through pre-editing, post-editing and customization of the technology.  ...  Thanks also to Reinhard Rapp and Felix Kopecky for their thorough review of this chapter. Any remaining errors are mine alone.  ...

2004 NJES: Nordic Journal of English studies  
More time and effort are invested in the survey of language attitudes than in the other two areas, as language attitudes have a direct bearing on the linguistic climate of the individual Nordic language  ...  The comparative aspect is a basic principle permeating all parts of the project, and will enable researchers to compare and contrast the situation in the different countries in a way that has not hitherto  ...  In the light of the widespread knowledge of English and the extensive use of it by a considerable proportion of the population it is, in fact, surprising that it has not had greater impact on Icelandic  ...

Précis of Foundations of language: brain, meaning, grammar, evolution

Ray Jackendoff
2003 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
It fits naturally into the larger architecture of the mind/brain and permits a properly mentalistic theory of semantics.  ...  The parallel architecture leads to an integration within linguistics, and to a far better integration with the rest of cognitive neuroscience.  ...  In other words, the elementary notions of contrast, distinctiveness, and well-formedness in phonology include linear order.  ...

Vagueness, degrees, and gradable predicates [chapter]

Marcin Morzycki
Modification  
Types are, after all, the building blocks of a kind of parallel syntax running inside the semantics, with its own conditions on well-formedness and legal modes of combination.  ...  The crucial sequence of steps-removing grains of sand or hairs on his head-is called a SORITES SEQUENCE.  ...
