    Abstract : In this thesis we present and solve selected problems arising from digital geometry and combinatorics on words. We consider digital straight lines and, equivalently, upper mechanical words with positive irrational slopes a... READ MORE

  2. 2. The Bilingual Lexicon from a Developmental Perspective : A Word Association Study of Persian-Swedish Bilinguals

    Author : Shidrokh Namei; Åke Viberg; Gisela Håkansson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Bilingual lexicon; Languages and linguistics; Språkvetenskap; Bilingualism; Tvåspråkighet; Andraspråksinlärning;

    Abstract : Some studies have shown that the L1 mental lexicon is organized mainly on a semantic basis, while the organization of the L2 mental lexicon in the early stages of development is phonologically based, that is non-semantic, indicating a less profound lexical knowledge and eliciting a higher degree of nonnative-like associations. This study examines whether or not this is the case. READ MORE

  3. 3. Temporal Adverbs in Modern Standard Chinese : A Decompositional Inquiry

    Author : Jens Karlsson; Kinesiska; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; decompositionality; semantics; temporality; Chinese; word class theory; temporal adverbs;

    Abstract : Temporal adverbs (时间副词 shíjiān fùcí) in Modern Standard Chinese (MSC) are a group of words assuming the role of adverbial modifier (状语 zhuàngyǔ), expressing a temporal notion. Both characteristics are problematic; adverbs (副词 fùcí) are defined as a word class with the sole function of assuming the role of adverbial modifier, but several words traditionally categorized as temporal adverbs have syntactic functions outside this scope.

  4. 4. Reading Difficulties and the Twofold Character of Language : How to Understand Dyslexia

    Author : Lars Lundström; Bo Ekehammar; Dirk J. Bakker; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : The present longitudinal study, which comprised 125 children from Grade 2 (typal age: 8) to Grade 6 (typal age: 13), examines and interprets the results of several decoding and reading comprehension tests. A point of departure is the proposition that there may be a lack of concepts about central questions that help interpret the results of an expanding test practice in the educational system.

  5. 5. Accounting for Individual Speaker Properties in Automatic Speech Recognition

    Author : Daniel Elenius; Björn Granström; Mats Blomberg; Torjbjörn Svendsen; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MAP; MLLR; VTLN; speaker characteristics; dynamic modeling; child; Information and language technology; Informations- och språkteknologi;

    Abstract : In this work, speaker characteristic modeling has been applied in the fields of automatic speech recognition (ASR) and automatic speaker verification (ASV). In ASR, a key problem is that acoustic mismatch between training and test conditions degrade classification per- formance. READ MORE
