  1. 1. Studies in Swedish Sign Language : Reference, Real Space Blending, and Interpretation

    Author : Anna-Lena Nilsson; Brita Bergman; Terry Janzen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Swedish Sign Language; INDEX-c; first person pronoun; non-dominant hand; buoys; Real Space blending; token blend; surrogate blend; signing space; constructed dialogue; constructed action; sign language interpreting; Sign language; Teckenspråk; Sign Language; teckenspråk;

    Abstract : This thesis comprises four separate studies of the same material: a ten-minute Swedish Sign Language monologue. Study I describes the form, meaning, and use of the sign INDEX-c, a pointing toward the chest traditionally described as a first person pronoun. READ MORE

  2. 2. Acquisition of reference to self and others in Greek Sign Language : From pointing gesture to pronominal pointing signs

    Author : Marianna Hatzopoulou; Brita Bergman; Richard P. Meier; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; deaf children; Greek Sign Language; personal pronouns; pointing; pointing signs; reference; sign language acquisition; Sign language; Teckenspråk; Sign Language; teckenspråk;

    Abstract : This dissertation explores the emergence of the linguistic use of pointing as first- and non-first-person pronoun in Greek Sign Language. Despite the similarity in form between the pointing gesture and pronominal pointing signs, children acquiring sign language pass through the same stages and acquire personal pronouns at about the same age as children acquiring spoken language.

  3. 3. Control of EGR and VGT for emission control and pumping work minimization in diesel engines

    Author : Johan Wahlström; Lars Nielsen; Lars Eriksson; Tore Hägglund; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mean value modeling; Oxygen fuel ratio; EGR-fraction; System analysis; Sign reversal; PID-control; European Transient Cycle; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Legislators steadily increase the demands on lowered emissions from heavy duty vehicles. To meet these demands it is necessary to integrate technologies like Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Variable Geometry Turbochargers (VGT) together with advanced control systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modalities of Mind : Modality-specific and nonmodality-specific aspects of working memory for sign and speech

    Author : Mary Rudner; Jerker Rönnberg; Alan Baddeley; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cognition; sign language; working memory; fMRI; PET; disability research; Korttidsminne; teckenspråk; Cognitive science; Kognitionsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Language processing is underpinned by working memory and while working memory for signed languages has been shown to display some of the characteristics of working memory for speech-based languages, there are a range of anomalous effects related to the inherently visuospatial modality of signed languages. On the basis of these effects, four research questions were addressed in a series of studies:1. READ MORE

  5. 5. Electrical remodeling in arial fibrillation - assessment using surface electrocardiograms, prognostic implications and potential reversal

    Author : Andreas Bollmann; Kardiologi; []

    Abstract : The fibrillatory rate of the surface ECG during atrial fibrillation (AF) has been suggested for quantification of the individual atrial remodeling, to monitor interventions and to predict the response to different therapies. In this dissertation, the relation between fibrillatory rate of the surface ECG and (1) clinical and echocardiographic variables, (2) the outcome of cardioversion, (3) circulating markers of inflammation and hemostasis, (4) the risk of left atrial thrombus formation, (5) the risk of stroke, and (6) the effects of candesartan on the fibrillatory rate were investigated in human persistent atrial fibrillation (AF).
