  1. 1. Protein-RNA interplay in translation. Structural studies of RRF, SelB and L1

    Author : Maria Selmer; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biophysics; Molekylär biofysik; crystallography; mimicry; translation factor; L1; SelB; protein synthesis; RRF;

    Abstract : Translation is a central biological process, that is catalysed by a machinery consisting of RNA and protein. In this thesis three different protein components of the bacterial protein synthesis system have been structurally studied. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Effects of Age of Onset on VOT in L2 Aquisition and L1 Attrition : A Study of the Speech Production and Perception of Advanced Spanish-Swedish Bilinguals

    Author : Katrin Stölten; Niclas Abrahamsson; Ulla Sundberg; Kirk Sullivan; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; second language acquisition; first language attrition; maturational constraints; critical period; voice onset time; stop production; categorical perception; activation threshold hypothesis; L1 use; highly proficient L2 learners; L1 Spanish; L2 Swedish; tvåspråkighet; Bilingualism;

    Abstract : This thesis explores the role of age in second language (L2) acquisition and first language (L1) attrition. The focus is on Voice Onset Time (VOT) in the production and categorical perception of word-initial L1 and L2 stops in highly advanced L1 Spanish learners of L2 Swedish. READ MORE

  3. 3. On L1 Attrition and Prosody in Pronominal Anaphora Resolution

    Author : Chiara Gargiulo; Italienska; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Pronominal anaphora resolution; L1 attrition; Prosody; Processing; cross-linguistic influence;

    Abstract : This thesis is a collection of four studies on pronominal anaphora resolution with a focus on first language (L1) attrition and prosody. In Study I, we explored the temporariness of attrition effects on anaphora resolution in L1 Italian speakers who moved to Sweden after puberty (i.e., late bilinguals). READ MORE

  4. 4. Function via structure in vivo and in modeling

    Author : Johan Unge; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; medical informatics; Bioinformatics; L1.; protein synthesis; L22; crýstallography; structure core database; threading; Structural bioinformatics; homology recognition; biomatematik; medicinsk informatik; biomathematics biometrics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Knowledge of biomolecules three-dimensional structure has provided a detailed understanding of their function. In recent years the number of new protein sequences has far exceeded the number of protein experimental structure determinations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Blindness and Second Language Acquisition : Studies of Cognitive Advantages in Blind L1 and L2 speakers

    Author : Helena Smeds; Niclas Abrahamsson; Lars-Göran Nilsson; Loraine Obler; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Early blindness; late blindness; L1 speakers; L2 speakers; cognitive advantages; second language acquisition; phonological short-term memory; recognition memory; episodic memory; speech perception in noise; accentedness in L2 speech; tvåspråkighet; Bilingualism;

    Abstract : The aim of this study is to investigate whether blind individuals display cognitive advantages over sighted individuals with regard to second language acquisition. Previous studies from neuropsychology have indicated that this is the case. READ MORE
