  1. 1. Modality and Subordinators in the Germanic Languages and beyond

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Jackie Nordström; [2009]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Germanic languages; factuality; subordinators; modality; propositional modality; general subordinators; that; if; whether; indicative; subjunctive; epistemic modality; irrealis; realis; Swedish;

    Abstract : This thesis argues that general subordinators, such as the Germanic THAT and IF, denote propositional modality. Propositional modality stands for the “speaker’s attitude to the truth-value or factual status of the proposition” (Palmer 2001:24) and is otherwise expressed by moods such as the indicative-subjunctive and epistemic-evidential modal markers.

  2. 2. The Emergence of Conditional Subordinators in Swedish : A Study in Grammaticalization

    University dissertation from Scandinavian Languages

    Author : Henrik Rosenkvist; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Scandinavian languages and literature; conditionality; source determination; image schema; abstraction; bleaching; grammaticalization; reanalysis; language change; syntax; Nordiska språk språk och litteratur ; subordinator; conditional; grammaticalization;

    Abstract : This thesis is an empirical and theoretical study of the emergence of five Swedish conditional subordinators: utan, om, hvar, ifall and bara. The first changes occur in the 13th century, and the last in the 18th century. READ MORE

  3. 3. Temporal Subordinators and Clauses in Early Modern English Stability and Change

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Department of English

    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; anteriority; aspect; complex subordinator; correlative subordinator; ellipsis; grammaticalization; modality; mood; negated subordinator; posteriority; primary meaning; repeated subordinator; replaced subordinator; secondary meaning; simple subordinator; simultaneity; temporal subordinator; tense; English; Engelska;

    Abstract : My work is a corpus-based investigation of the use and development of temporal subordinators and clauses in Early Modern British English (EModE).  The focus of the project is on the forms, structure, meanings, and history of these subordinators and clauses. READ MORE

  4. 4. Markov Chains, Renewal, Branching and Coalescent Processes Four Topics in Probability Theory

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Matematiska institutionen

    Author : Andreas Nordvall Lagerås; Thomas Höglund; Ingemar Kaj; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Mathematical statistics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Matematisk statistik; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four papers.In paper 1, we prove central limit theorems for Markov chains under (local) contraction conditions. As a corollary we obtain a central limit theorem for Markov chains associated with iterated function systems with contractive maps and place-dependent Dini-continuous probabilities. READ MORE

  5. 5. Nelson-type Limits for α-Stable Lévy Processes

    University dissertation from Linnéuniversitet

    Author : Haidar Al-Talibi; Astrid Hilbert; Francesco Russo; [2010]

    Abstract : Brownian motion has met growing interest in mathematics, physics and particularly in finance since it was introduced in the beginning of the twentieth century. Stochastic processes generalizing Brownian motion have influenced many research fields theoretically and practically. READ MORE
