Through the Window of Language: Assessing the Influence of Language Diversity on Thought

John A. LUCY
2010 THEORIA : an International Journal for Theory, History and Fundations of Science  
Twentieth century anthropological linguists interested in linguistic relativity have questioned this assumption and sought to characterize "reality" without it by using domain- or structure-centered approaches  ...  Historically, researchers divided over whether the diverse representations of reality across languages were natural or conventional, but all tacitly assumed an optimal fit between language and reality.  ...  , that is, to study languages and the realities they represent through the window of language itself.  ...

The Mirror and the Window: Reflections on Anthology Construction

2001 Pedagogy: Critical Approaches to Teaching Literature, Language, Composition  
Hence my coeditors and I persuaded Longman to bring out our anthology in the six-volume format that we introduced in the summer of 1999.  ...  The scholarship of pedagogy is becoming a vital area of scholarship in general, as the classroom has become recognized as a crucial space where ideas take root and a place as well where the institutional  ...  Nothing is gained if we merely substitute today's narcissistic triumphalism for yesterday's, but much can be gained if we see what opportunities we now have to do better justice to our subject, and to  ...

Kristof Baten, Frederik Cornillie
2019 Journal of the European Second Language Association  
Thirty-six university L2 learners of German participated in the study. The results show that the elicited data prove comparable to the naturally occurring data.  ...  In addition, concerning methodological advancement of the OEIT design, the present study proposes to include a direct measure of comprehension.  ...  approaches (see Jessop et al., 2007; Vinther, 2002; Yan et al., 2016) .  ...

Language Disorders as a Window on Universal Grammar: An Abstract Theory of Agreement for IP, DP, and V-PP

Thomas Roeper, Eliane Ramos, Harry Seymour, Lamya Abdul-Karim
2001 Brain and Language  
We then extend the notion of AGR to include verb-PP relations, where the child also systematically avoids certain prepositions ("go beach").  ...  The analysis is supported by intuitional data from compounds (sweep with broom => broom-swept).  ...  : "what did she say what she wanted" This is a separate topic and indicates that the fine-structure of agreement remains to be articulated.  ...

Evaluative Adjectives as a Window onto Inner-Aspect

Bryan John Leferman, Javier Ormazabal Zamakona, Myriam Uribe-Etxebarria Goti
2019 Zenodo  
This thesis argues that Evaluative Adjectives (e.g. brave, rude, smart) are properly analysed as stative causative predicates that undergo the causative alternation.  ...  Acknowledgements I would like to thank my supervisors, Javier Ormazabal and Myriam Uribe-Etxebarria, for their guidance and patience throughout the development of this thesis.  ...  But when compared with (23b), we see that what is missing is the intuition of temporal duration with respect to a stage.  ...

Genetics and animal domestication: new windows on an elusive process

K. Dobney, G. Larson
2006 Journal of Zoology  
This review seeks not only to discuss the wider concerns and ramifications of genetic approaches to the study of animal domestication but also to provide a broader theoretical framework for understanding  ...  More specifically, we discuss issues related to the terminology associated with domestication, the possibility of domestication genes, and the promise and problems of genetics to answer the fundamental  ...  A similar figure is then calculated between the wild individuals and a distantly related cousin used as an outgroup to root the phylogenetic tree.  ...

Voice Modulation: A Window into the Origins of Human Vocal Control?

Katarzyna Pisanski, Valentina Cartei, Carolyn McGettigan, Jordan Raine, David Reby
2016 Trends in Cognitive Sciences  
We argue that humans' ability to modulate nonverbal vocal features evolutionarily linked to expression of body size and sex (fundamental and formant frequencies) provides a largely overlooked window into  ...  An unresolved issue in comparative approaches to speech evolution is the apparent absence of an intermediate vocal communication system between human speech and the less flexible vocal repertoires of other  ...  Acknowledgments The authors thank Tecumseh Fitch, Drew Rendall, and Megan Wyman for sharing vocal recordings used in the creation of  ...

Music Viewed by its Entropy Content: A Novel Window for Comparative Analysis [article]

Gerardo Febres, Klaus Jaffe
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We show that description of musical structures using entropy and symbolic diversity allows to characterize traditional and popular expressions of music.  ...  Applying these methods to a variety of musical pieces showed how the space of "symbolic specific diversity-entropy" and that of "2nd order entropy" captures characteristics that are unique to each music  ...  MusicNet is too lush to be extensively presented here. But we include the upper levels of the tree in Table 1 and a link that allows access to the whole tree in Appendix A.  ...

Variation in the speech signal as a window into the cognitive architecture of language production

Audrey Bürki
2018 Psychonomic Bulletin & Review  
The pronunciation of words is highly variable. This variation provides crucial information about the cognitive architecture of the language production system.  ...  It examines how these data constrain our current understanding of word production processes and highlights major challenges and open issues that should be addressed in future research.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was partly supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), Collaborative Research Centre SFB 1287, Project B05.  ...

Shared execution strategy for neighbor-based pattern mining requests over streaming windows

Di Yang, Elke A. Rundensteiner, Matthew O. Ward
2012 ACM Transactions on Database Systems  
Second, by leveraging the potential overlaps among sliding windows, we propose a meta-query strategy which utilizes a single query to answer multiple queries with different window-specific parameters.  ...  Then we analyze the interrelations between the patterns identified by queries with different parameters settings, including both pattern-specific and window-specific parameters.  ...  Dazhi Zhang and other members of XMDV and DSRG group at WPI for providing input on this work.  ...

Construction and visualization of key term hierarchies

Joe Zhou, Troy Tanner
1997 Proceedings of the fifth conference on Applied natural language processing -  
The friendly and interactive GUI toolkit allows the user to visualize the key terms in context and explore the content of the original dataset.  ...  The generated key terms are organized in a hierarchical structure and fed into a graphic user interface (GUI).  ...  Though what constitutes a good term still remains to be answered, we know that a good term can be a word stem, a single word, a multiple word term (a phrase), or simply a syntactic unit.  ...
