Descriptive study of cooperative language in primary care consultations by male and female doctors. (1/3485)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the use of some of the characteristics of male and female language by male and female primary care practitioners during consultations. DESIGN: Doctors' use of the language of dominance and support was explored by using concordancing software. Three areas were examined: mean number of words per consultation; relative frequency of question tags; and use of mitigated directives. The analysis of language associated with cooperative talk examines relevant words or phrases and their immediate context. SUBJECTS: 26 male and 14 female doctors in general practice, in a total of 373 consecutive consultations. SETTING: West Midlands. RESULTS: Doctors spoke significantly more words than patients, but the number of words spoken by male and female doctors did not differ significantly. Question tags were used far more frequently by doctors (P<0.001) than by patients or companions. Frequency of use was similar in male and female doctors, and the speech styles in consultation were similar. CONCLUSIONS: These data show that male and female doctors use a speech style which is not gender specific, contrary to findings elsewhere; doctors consulted in an overtly non-directive, negotiated style, which is realised through suggestions and affective comments. This mode of communication is the core teaching of communication skills courses. These results suggest that men have more to learn to achieve competence as professional communicators.  (+info)

Disrupted temporal lobe connections in semantic dementia. (2/3485)

Semantic dementia refers to the variant of frontotemporal dementia in which there is progressive semantic deterioration and anomia in the face of relative preservation of other language and cognitive functions. Structural imaging and SPECT studies of such patients have suggested that the site of damage, and by inference the region critical to semantic processing, is the anterolateral temporal lobe, especially on the left. Recent functional imaging studies of normal participants have revealed a network of areas involved in semantic tasks. The present study used PET to examine the consequences of focal damage to the anterolateral temporal cortex for the operation of this semantic network. We measured PET activation associated with a semantic decision task relative to a visual decision task in four patients with semantic dementia compared with six age-matched normal controls. Normals activated a network of regions consistent with previous studies. The patients activated some areas consistently with the normals, including some regions of significant atrophy, but showed substantially reduced activity particularly in the left posterior inferior temporal gyrus (iTG) (Brodmann area 37/19). Voxel-based morphometry, used to identify the regions of structural deficit, revealed significant anterolateral temporal atrophy (especially on the left), but no significant structural damage to the posterior inferior temporal lobe. Other evidence suggests that the left posterior iTG is critically involved in lexical-phonological retrieval: the lack of activation here is consistent with the observation that these patients are all anomic. We conclude that changes in activity in regions distant from the patients' structural damage support the argument that their prominent anomia is due to disrupted temporal lobe connections.  (+info)

Language processing is strongly left lateralized in both sexes. Evidence from functional MRI. (3/3485)

Functional MRI (fMRI) was used to examine gender effects on brain activation during a language comprehension task. A large number of subjects (50 women and 50 men) was studied to maximize the statistical power to detect subtle differences between the sexes. To estimate the specificity of findings related to sex differences, parallel analyses were performed on two groups of randomly assigned subjects. Men and women showed very similar, strongly left lateralized activation patterns. Voxel-wise tests for group differences in overall activation patterns demonstrated no significant differences between women and men. In further analyses, group differences were examined by region of interest and by hemisphere. No differences were found between the sexes in lateralization of activity in any region of interest or in intrahemispheric cortical activation patterns. These data argue against substantive differences between men and women in the large-scale neural organization of language processes.  (+info)

Is grammar special? (4/3485)

Recent studies of children with developmental disorders provide striking insights into the nature of language. These studies suggest that, although much of language arises from more general cognitive capacities, certain aspects of grammar have an autonomous psychological and neural basis.  (+info)

Linguistic diversity of the Americas can be reconciled with a recent colonization. (5/3485)

The Americas harbor a very great diversity of indigenous language stocks, many more than are found in any other continent. J. Nichols [(1990) Language 66, 475-521] has argued that this diversity indicates a great time depth of in situ evolution. She thus infers that the colonization of the Americas must have begun around 35,000 years ago. This estimate is much earlier than the date for which there is strong archaeological support, which does not much exceed 12,000 years. Nichols' assumption is that the diversity of linguistic stocks increases linearly with time. This paper compares the major continents of the world to show that this assumption is not correct. In fact, stock diversity is highest in the Americas, which are by consensus the youngest continents, intermediate in Australia and New Guinea, and lowest in Africa and Eurasia where the time depth is greatest. If anything, then, after an initial radiation, stock diversity decreases with time. A simple model is outlined that predicts these dynamics. It assumes that early in the peopling of continents, there are many unfilled niches for communities to live in, and so fissioning into new lineages is frequent. As the habitat is filled up, the rate of fissioning declines and lineage extinction becomes the dominant evolutionary force.  (+info)

Molecular genetic evidence for the human settlement of the Pacific: analysis of mitochondrial DNA, Y chromosome and HLA markers. (6/3485)

Present-day Pacific islanders are thought to be the descendants of Neolithic agriculturalists who expanded from island South-east Asia several thousand years ago. They speak languages belonging to the Austronesian language family, spoken today in an area spanning half of the circumference of the world, from Madagascar to Easter Island, and from Taiwan to New Zealand. To investigate the genetic affinities of the Austronesian-speaking peoples, we analysed mitochondrial DNA, HLA and Y-chromosome polymorphisms in individuals from eight geographical locations in Asia and the Pacific (China, Taiwan, Java, New Guinea highlands, New Guinea coast, Trobriand Islands, New Britain and Western Samoa). Our results show that the demographic expansion of the Austronesians has left a genetic footprint. However, there is no simple correlation between languages and genes in the Pacific.  (+info)

Language outcome following multiple subpial transection for Landau-Kleffner syndrome. (7/3485)

Landau-Kleffner syndrome is an acquired epileptic aphasia occurring in normal children who lose previously acquired speech and language abilities. Although some children recover some of these abilities, many children with Landau-Kleffner syndrome have significant language impairments that persist. Multiple subpial transection is a surgical technique that has been proposed as an appropriate treatment for Landau-Kleffner syndrome in that it is designed to eliminate the capacity of cortical tissue to generate seizures or subclinical epileptiform activity, while preserving the cortical functions subserved by that tissue. We report on the speech and language outcome of 14 children who underwent multiple subpial transection for treatment of Landau-Kleffner syndrome. Eleven children demonstrated significant postoperative improvement on measures of receptive or expressive vocabulary. Results indicate that early diagnosis and treatment optimize outcome, and that gains in language function are most likely to be seen years, rather than months, after surgery. Since an appropriate control group was not available, and that the best predictor of postoperative improvements in language function was that of length of time since surgery, these data might best be used as a benchmark against other Landau-Kleffner syndrome outcome studies. We conclude that multiple subpial transection may be useful in allowing for a restoration of speech and language abilities in children diagnosed with Landau-Kleffner syndrome.  (+info)

Laterality in animals: relevance to schizophrenia. (8/3485)

Anomalies in the laterality of numerous neurocognitive dimensions associated with schizophrenia have been documented, but their role in the etiology and early development of the disorder remain unclear. In the study of normative neurobehavioral organization, animal models have shed much light on the mechanisms underlying and the factors affecting adult patterns of both functional and structural asymmetry. Nonhuman species have more recently been used to investigate the environmental, genetic, and neuroendocrine factors associated with developmental language disorders in humans. We propose that the animal models used to study the basis of lateralization in normative development and language disorders such as dyslexia could be modified to investigate lateralized phenomena in schizophrenia.  (+info)

Discussion among translators, entitled: translating into a language other than your mother tongue. Forum name: Being independent
January 8, 2013 @ 5:25 am So when I said that measuring the error rates for human speech recognition should be quite easy, I was wrong. I do hope that someone comes up with a fair comparison on continuous speech (with half-elided function words and the like). The paper Mark cites seems to be a good start.. I dont understand how decoding with no language model or with a 0-gram (?) works. Correct me if Im wrong. Either the prior on sentences is uniform, or the language model is a unigram with a uniform prior per word.. In the former case, as Mark says, the LM weight doesnt matter, obviously. The language model is a uniform distribution over an infinite number of sentences, which is a bit funny. I am not sure how one computes the perplexity on such a model and ends up with a number less than infinity.. In the latter case, the language model will prefer shorter sequences, which should result in longer words. E.g. for an will always be recognised as foreign. But the language model will ...

Abstract: This study explores the international impact of Chinese language learning on the management policy of a community Chinese language school in the United States. Chinese language schools in the U.S. used to teach Mandarin to Mandarin-speaking students who are highly homogeneous in their linguistic and cultural backgrounds. However, as the impact of Chinas recent economic development has become more international, so has the influence of Chinese language learning? This international impact of Chinese language learning is reflected in the increasingly heterogeneous student population in many Chinese language schools in the United States. These schools have to adapt their management policy to accommodate these new students, who may have a multicultural, multilingual background and do not speak Mandarin at home. This study examines one such school.This study is a case study of a Chinese language schools adaptations in its management policy when it faces the international impact of Chinese ...

The Chinese language is one of the oldest in the world. Unlike many languages, Chinese doesnt have an alphabet and its not written as a series of letters, but rather as a series of pictures that have meaning and sounds. (Although the dialects and spoken language can vary from region to region, written language remains the same). The Japanese language uses them even more often. The Chinese language is the oldest written language in the world with at least six thousand years of history.

Differences between males and females in brain development and in the organization and hemispheric lateralization of brain functions have been described, including in language. Sex differences in language organization may have important implications for language mapping performed to assess, and minimize neurosurgical risk to, language function. This study examined the effect of sex on the activation and functional connectivity of the brain, measured with presurgical functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) language mapping in patients with a brain tumor. We carried out a retrospective analysis of data from neurosurgical patients treated at our institution who met the criteria of pathological diagnosis (malignant brain tumor), tumor location (left hemisphere), and fMRI paradigms [sentence completion (SC); antonym generation (AG); and resting-state fMRI (rs-fMRI)]. Forty-seven patients (22 females, mean age = 56.0 years) were included in the study. Across the SC and AG tasks, females relative to males

The project is just a touch gutsier and guitar-heavy than Field Music, but still exhibits the latters fascination with Laurel Canyon-esque vocal harmonies and ambitious time signatures. School of Languages debut full-length, Sea from Shore, was released on Thrill Jockey (U.S.) and Memphis Industries (U.K.) in 2008. Brewis hit the road in support of the album soon after it came out, touring the U.S. throughout the spring of that year backed by Tortoises Doug McCombs on bass and Euphones Ryan Rapsys on drums. After finishing up the tour, Brewis turned his attention back to Field Music, and the group cranked out two excellent albums in relatively quick succession, 2010s Field Music (Measure) and 2012s Plumb. Once finished with this burst of band energy, Brewis threw himself into a crazily busy schedule of collaboration, production (most notably working with Maximo Park,) scoring silent films, and remixing, while also finding time to tour with Eleanor Friedbergers band.

Résumé : To check a system, some verification techniques consider a set of terms I that represents the initial configurations of the system, and a rewrite system R that represents the system behavior. To check that no undesirable configuration is reached, they compute an over-approximation of the set of descendants (successors) issued from I by R, expressed by a tree language. Their success highly depends on the quality of the approximation. Some techniques have been presented using regular tree languages, and more recently using non-regular languages to get better approximations: using context-free tree languages on the one hand, using synchronized tree languages on the other hand. In this paper, we merge these two approaches to get even better approximations: we compute an over-approximation of the descendants, using synchronized-context-free tree languages expressed by logic programs. We give several examples for which our procedure computes the descendants in an exact way, whereas the ...

Joao Carvalho, WS 2018, Projekt Homepage. This webpage showcases the master project developed by João Carvalho at the Chair of Algorithms and Data Structures of the University of Freiburg, as part of the MSc degree in Computer Science.. In this project we explored the capabilities of neural language models. More precisely, we questioned if a neural network would be able to encode Part-of-Speech (POS) tags in its neurons, just by training a simple language model.. We first trained a byte-level language model with a Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) network using a large collection of text. Then, taking a sentence, which can be viewed as a byte sequence, we used its inner representations (the cell states of the LSTM), along with its corresponding POS tags, as the inputs and targets to train a logistic regression classifier. Looking at the classifier weights, we observed that some concepts (POS tags) are encoded in one neuron, i.e., the POS tag of a byte can be derived from one neurons activation ...
In our cross-sectional analysis we have described the differences in dietary intake in Australian households which speak a language other than English, compared to English-only speaking households. We have demonstrated that those households who spoke a language other than English, consumed a traditional or mixed dietary pattern, with lower intake of foods containing saturated fat. We have also shown that dietary changes occur over time when adolescents migrate from a developing country to a western country, with increased consumption of saturated fat and decreased intake of fibre. This was driven by an increase in fast-foods including pies and crisps. Contrary to our hypothesis, no associations between nutrient intake or whole food intake and self-reported wheeze were observed.. The consequence of the changes in dietary pattern that we observed in newly arrived migrant students is the potential exposure to several pro-inflammatory nutrients. Dietary fat, in particular saturated fatty acids, can ...

In particular, I used KenLM, software made by Kenneth Heafield for building such models.. I wont go into all the details about how language modelling works, but its useful to introduce some basic ideas. One of the simplest types of language models is a unigram model. A unigram model assigns a probability to a sequence of words based on how frequently each word in the sequence appeared in the training set. So, for example, if we put the sentence Make America great again into a unigram language model, the model would give us a probability that depends on how frequently make appeared in the training set, how frequently America appeared in the training set, etc. A bigram model extends this idea to two-word sequences. So, to assign a probability to Make America great again, wed look at how frequently make America appeared in the training set, how frequently America great appeared in the training set, etc. Trigram models extend this idea to three-word sequences, and so on. KenLM also ...

2 Linguistics 2. STUDY. Branches of Linguistics. Various definitions have been given by different scholars on what language is. the study of the production, perception and the physical nature of sounds of speech and how these can be recorded with written symbols. Linguistics spans a large number of subfields, each dealing with a different part of the language faculty. Theoretical linguistics is the branch of linguistics that is most concerned with developing models of linguistic knowledge. Furthermore, Saussures definition of general linguistics consists of the dichotomy of synchronic and diachronic linguistics, thus including historical linguistics as a core issue. Division 22 of the American Psychological Association, TIP: The Industrial-Organizational Psychologist, Tutorials in Quantitative Methods for Psychology, Speech.

Linguistics is offered as a degree subject in many universities, either on its own, or combined with other subjects. At Sheffield, we offer a degree in English Language & Linguistics, which involves opportunities to study all the areas of linguistics covered in the Branches of Linguistics section of this site. We also offer Linguistics combined with other subjects, such as foreign languages, through our range of Dual Honours degrees.. We know that most students will be studying linguistics for the first time when they join a degree programme, so we dont assume any prior knowledge. The first year of our programmes provides the foundational knowledge and basic toolkit you need to be a linguist. We dont even require students to have studied English Language before joining our English Language & Linguistics course - applicants just need to demonstrate an interest in language study, and an awareness of what it will involve, so that we can be sure youre prepared for the challenges it ...
Clinical linguistics is the branch of linguistics that applies linguistic concepts and theories to the study of language disorders. As the name suggests, clinical linguistics is a dual-facing discipline. Although the conceptual roots of this field are in linguistics, its domain of application is the vast array of clinical disorders that may compromise the use and understanding of language. Both dimensions of clinical linguistics can be addressed through an examination of specific linguistic deficits in individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders, craniofacial anomalies, adult-onset neurological impairments, psychiatric disorders, and neurodegenerative disorders. Clinical linguists are interested in the full range of linguistic deficits in these conditions, including phonetic deficits of children with cleft lip and palate, morphosyntactic errors in children with specific language impairment, and pragmatic language impairments in adults with schizophrenia.Like many applied disciplines in linguistics,
Initially, all modern linguistics was historical in orientation. Even the study of modern dialects involved looking at their origins. Ferdinand de Saussures distinction between synchronic and diachronic linguistics is fundamental to the present day organization of the discipline. Primacy is accorded to synchronic linguistics, and diachronic linguistics is defined as the study of successive synchronic stages. Saussures clear demarcation, however, has had both defenders and critics. In linguistics, a synchronic analysis is one that views linguistic phenomena only at a given time, usually the present, though a synchronic analysis of a historical language form is also possible. This may be distinguished from diachronic, which regards a phenomenon in terms of developments through time. Diachronic analysis is the main concern of historical linguistics; however, most other branches of linguistics are concerned with some form of synchronic analysis. The study of language change offers a valuable ...
Computational linguistics is an interdisciplinary field concerned with the statistical or rule-based modeling of natural language from a computational perspective, as well as the study of appropriate computational approaches to linguistic questions. Traditionally, computational linguistics was performed by computer scientists who had specialized in the application of computers to the processing of a natural language. Today, computational linguists often work as members of interdisciplinary teams, which can include regular linguists, experts in the target language, and computer scientists. In general, computational linguistics draws upon the involvement of linguists, computer scientists, experts in artificial intelligence, mathematicians, logicians, philosophers, cognitive scientists, cognitive psychologists, psycholinguists, anthropologists and neuroscientists, among others. Computational linguistics has theoretical and applied components. Theoretical computational linguistics focuses on issues ...
A Social View on the Chinese Language is intended to be a general linguistic introduction to the Chinese language for the general reader and can be used in beginning-level Chinese linguistics courses. It is different from other Chinese linguistics surveys because, in addition to the usual areas of interest (such as the Chinese dialects, the history of the language, the characters and the grammar), it offers a view into linguistic phenomena that are also related to human behavior and society, such as how Chinese children and US college students learn Chinese, how the brain processes Chinese, the genetic origins of Chinese, language disorders and language loss in Chinese, differences in Chinese language use in different social groups, studies of Chinese reading and psycholinguistic aspects of Chinese language use ...

The traditional English pronunciation of Latin, and Classical Greek words borrowed through Latin, is the way the Latin language was traditionally pronounced by speakers of English until the early 20th century. In the Middle Ages speakers of English, from Middle English onward, pronounced Latin not as the ancient Romans did, but in the way that had developed among speakers of French. This traditional pronunciation then became closely linked to the pronunciation of English, and as the pronunciation of English changed with time, the English pronunciation of Latin changed as well. Until the beginning of the 19th century all English speakers used this pronunciation, including Roman Catholics for liturgical purposes.[1] Following Catholic emancipation in Britain in 1829 and the subsequent Oxford Movement, newly converted Catholics preferred the Italianate pronunciation which became the norm for the Catholic liturgy. Meanwhile, scholarly proposals were made for a reconstructed Classical pronunciation, ...

Historical Linguistics, also called Diachronic Linguistics, the branch of linguistics concerned with the study of phonological, grammatical, and semantic changes, the reconstruction of earlier stages of languages, and the discovery and application of the methods by which genetic relationships among languages can be demonstrated. Historical linguistics had its roots in the etymological speculations of classical and medieval times, in the comparative study of Greek and Latin developed during the Renaissance, and in the speculations of scholars as to the language from which the other languages of the world were descended.. ...
The German sinologist and general linguist Georg von der Gabelentz (1840-1893) occupies an interesting place at the intersection of several streams of linguistic scholarship at the end of the 19th century. As Professor of East Asian languages at the University of Leipzig from 1878 to 1889 and then Professor for Sinology and General Linguistics at the University of Berlin from 1889 until his death, Gabelentz was present at some of the main centers of linguistics at the time. He was, however, generally critical of mainstream historical-comparative linguistics as propagated by the neogrammarians, and instead emphasized approaches to language inspired by a line of researchers including Wilhelm von Humboldt (1767-1835), H. Steinthal (1823-1899), and his own father, Hans Conon von der Gabelentz (1807-1874).Today Gabelentz is chiefly remembered for several theoretical and methodological innovations which continue to play a role in linguistics. Most significant among these are his contributions to cross
Background:The Wada test is usually used for pre-surgical assessment of language lateralization. Considering its invasiveness and risk of complications, alternative methods have been proposed but they are not always applicable to non-cooperative patients. In this study we explored the possibility of using optical topography (OT) - a multichannel near-infrared system - for non-invasive assessment of hemispheric language dominance during passive listening.Material/Methods:Cortical activity was monitored in a sample of healthy, adult Italian native speakers, all right-handed. We assessed changes in oxy-haemoglobin concentration in temporal, parietal and posterior frontal lobes during a passive listening of bi-syllabic words and vowel-consonant-vowel syllables lasting less then 3 minutes. Activated channels were identified by t tests.Results:Left hemisphere showed significant activity only during the passive listening of bi-syllabic words. Specifically, the superior temporal gyrus, the supramarginal gyrus
Oxford University Press is also the leader in marshaling the resources of the modern electronic world to serve and enhance academic publishing, beginning with the pioneering conversion of the monumental Oxford English Dictionary to electronic form a quarter-century ago. The OED online stands as the premier electronic resource for the study of language. I have had the privilege to serve as the Editor in Chief since its inception of the Oxford Bibliographies in Linguistics. That effort has only deepened my belief in the power of electronic publishing of reference works and I am honored to be the inaugural Editor in Chief of this encyclopedia.. The ORE of Linguistics will be the focal point of OUPs electronic reference resources in linguistics, with seamless links to the Oxford Bibliographies in Linguistics and the Oxford Handbooks Online, which, as of this writing, already contains close to nine hundred articles drawn from twenty four print volumes. As both these resources continue to grow, they ...

There is a problem with both fields (those experienced in learning languages, and those who study the science of languages) merging and some people claiming knowledge in a field they have none.. I have come across the odd linguist spreading discouraging and false claims about language learning. These are linguists in the general sense that they work in linguistics academically, but I dont see them as following the scientific approach. As in any field, some people are just not good at science and instead extrapolate data in inefficient and limiting contexts (especially when that data disagrees with so many people disproving it).. The problem is that many linguists (people with academic and professional experience in studying and working with languages and linguistics) do not speak foreign languages so when they talk about second language learning they are looking at impersonal data with no personal experience.. Theres nothing wrong with that, but when you start making questionable claims then ...
Students interested in discourse, interactional linguistics, and sociocultural linguistics (including sociolinguistics and linguistic anthropology) will find the graduate emphasis in Language, Interaction, and Social Organization (LISO) a valuable addition to their Ph.D. program. LISO brings together faculty and graduate students in linguistics, sociology, and education who share a recognition of the importance of language as a fundamental resource for human action and social organization. LISO faculty and graduate students conduct research on language use and other communicative action in their naturally occurring interactional contexts. Relying primarily on video and audio recordings of social interaction, linguists in LISO examine such issues as how grammatical structures emerge from communicative needs, how embodied communication such as gesture interacts with language, and how broader social phenomena like identity and power are produced within interaction. Members of LISO study informal ...

Published in the journal Development Psychology by Jessica Scott and Dr. Annette Henderson, the infants understood that different languages were used by people from varying backgrounds to describe the same object.. By that age, infants understand that people who speak different languages do not use the same words in the same way, says Dr Henderson from the Universitys Early Learning Laboratory. This is the first evidence that infants do not indiscriminately generalise words across people.. This early appreciation might help infants by encouraging them to focus on learning the words that will most likely be shared by members of their own linguistic group, she says.. They understand that object labels (word meanings) have shared meanings among speakers of the same language.. This finding shows that infants appreciate that words are not shared by speakers of different languages, suggesting that infants have a fairly nuanced understanding of the conventional nature of language, Dr ...
The major purpose of this study was to explore changes in language proficiency and self-concept of Japanese college students participating in an intensive English language program at Tokyo International University of America (TIUA). Another purpose of the study was to determine if there was a relationship between change in English language proficiency as measured by the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and changes in self-concept as measured by the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale (TSCS). Data for this study were collected between May 1989 (pretest) and January 1990 (posttest). Of the 61 students (mostly sophomores and juniors) in the exchange program, 44 students completed the pre- and posttests of TOEFL, 52 students completed the pre-and posttests of TSCS, while 39 students completed the pre- and posttests of both the TOEFL and TSCS. The data were analyzed by methods of one-way analysis of variance, t-tests and Pearsons correlation analyses. Results of this study show that (i) there ...

Language sits on top of all of this. You would be forgiven for thinking that language existed apart from all of this because linguists seldom make reference to non-linguistic communication, and are often focussed on just the words involved in language, or even just written language. As I mentioned, Lakoff & Johnson have argued that the metaphors which underlie the our abstract though are based in our physical interactions with the world. So native English speakers know the metaphor that up is good (on the whole) and down is bad: e.g. a good mood is up; optimists feel things are looking up etc. (Similar metaphors are found in Sanskrit btw.). Similarly, in discussions we employ the argument is war metaphor: we take sides and defend positions against opponents; a vigorous exchange involves cut and thrust; we line points up and shoot them down; and we win if our points are on target or we exploit a weakness, or lose when our argument is undermined or demolished; we love to drop bombshells, and ...
