Constructing Families of Constructions by Francisco José Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez,Alba Luzondo Oyón,Paula Pérez Sobrino Summary

Within Construction Grammar, this volume moves away from a compartmentalized view of constructions with the aim of providing a more holistic description of grammar. Thus, the book brings together analyses that look at constructional families within the “constructicon” of such languages as English, Spanish, German, Polish, Croatian, and Hungarian. Part 1 focuses on how different analytical perspectives may be applied to comparable and/or connected constructions with a view to enhancing our understanding of their similarities, differences, and relations. Part 2 contributes to the state of the art in Construction Grammar in three ways: (i) by reconciling aspects of various constructionist analyses; (ii) by determining to what extent competing constructionist perspectives can offer more adequate approaches to specific analytical needs; and (iii) by challenging central assumptions within Construction Grammar. This book is expected to encourage further research into the anatomy of constructional families and their interrelations in all domains of constructional organization.

Ontologies for Agents: Theory and Experiences by Valentina Tamma,Stephen Cranefield,Timothy W. Finin,Steven Willmott Summary

The volume aims at providing a comprehensive review of the diverse efforts covering the gap existing between the two main perspectives on the topic of ontologies for multi-agent systems, namely: How ontologies should be modelled and represented in order to be effectively used in agent systems, and on the other hand, what kind of capabilities should be exhibited by an agent in order to make use of ontological knowledge and to perform efficient reasoning with it. The volume collects the most significant papers of the AAMAS 2002 and AAMAS 2003 workshop on ontologies for agent systems, and the EKAW 2002 workshop on ontologies for multi-agent systems.

Adoption and impact of OER in the Global South by Cheryl Hodgkinson-Williams,Brazil Arinto Summary

Education in the Global South faces several key interrelated challenges, for which Open Educational Resources (OER) are seen to be part of the solution. These challenges include: unequal access to education; variable quality of educational resources, teaching, and student performance; and increasing cost and concern about the sustainability of education. The Research on Open Educational Resources for Development (ROER4D) project seeks to build on and contribute to the body of research on how OER can help to improve access, enhance quality and reduce the cost of education in the Global South. This volume examines aspects of educator and student adoption of OER and engagement in Open Educational Practices (OEP) in secondary and tertiary education as well as teacher professional development in 21 countries in South America, Sub-Saharan Africa and South and Southeast Asia. The ROER4D studies and syntheses presented here aim to help inform Open Education advocacy, policy, practice and research in developing countries.

Lexical Collocation Analysis by Pascual Cantos-Gómez,Moisés Almela-Sánchez Summary

This book re-examines the notion of word associations, more precisely collocations. It attempts to come to a potentially more generally applicable definition of collocation and how to best extract, identify and measure collocations. The book highlights the role played by (i) automatic linguistic annotation (part-of-speech tagging, syntactic parsing, etc.), (ii) using semantic criteria to facilitate the identification of collocations, (iii) multi-word structured, instead of the widespread assumption of bipartite collocational structures, for capturing the intricacies of the phenomenon of syntagmatic attraction, (iv) considering collocation and valency as near neighbours in the lexis-grammar continuum and (v) the mathematical properties of statistical association measures in the automatic extraction of collocations from corpora. This book is an ideal guide to the use of statistics in collocation analysis and lexicography, as well as a practical text to the development of skills in the application of computational lexicography. Lexical Collocation Analysis: Advances and Applications begins with a proposal for integrating both collocational and valency phenomena within the overarching theoretical framework of construction grammar. Next the book makes the case for integrating advances in syntactic parsing and in collocational analysis. Chapter 3 offers an innovative look at complementing corpus data and dictionaries in the identification of specific types of collocations consisting of restricted predicate-argument combinations. This strategy complements corpus collocational data with network analysis techniques applied to dictionary entries. Chapter 4 explains the potential of collocational graphs and networks both as a visualization tool and as an analytical technique. Chapter 5 introduces MERGE (Multi-word Expressions from the Recursive Grouping of Elements), a data-driven approach to the identification and extraction of multi-word expressions from corpora. Finally the book concludes with an analysis and evaluation of factors influencing the performance of collocation extraction methods in parsed corpora.

The Final Revival of Opal & Nev by Dawnie Walton Summary

An electrifying novel about the meteoric rise of an iconic interracial rock duo in the 1970s, their sensational breakup, and the dark secrets unearthed when they try to reunite decades later for one last tour. A GOOD MORNING AMERICA BUZZ PICK NAMED A BEST BOOK OF 2021 BY BARACK OBAMA * THE WASHINGTON POST * NPR * ESQUIRE * ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY * GOODREADS * THE MILLIONS * READER’S DIGEST * PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER * EERIE READER * PUBLIC RADIO TULSA * CHICAGO PUBLIC LIBRARY * KIRKUS REVIEWS “Feels truer and more mesmerizing than some true stories. It’s a packed time capsule that doubles as a stick of dynamite.” —THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW Opal is a fiercely independent young woman pushing against the grain in her style and attitude, Afro-punk before that term existed. Coming of age in Detroit, she can’t imagine settling for a 9-to-5 job—despite her unusual looks, Opal believes she can be a star. So when the aspiring British singer/songwriter Neville Charles discovers her at a bar’s amateur night, she takes him up on his offer to make rock music together for the fledgling Rivington Records. In early seventies New York City, just as she’s finding her niche as part of a flamboyant and funky creative scene, a rival band signed to her label brandishes a Confederate flag at a promotional concert. Opal’s bold protest and the violence that ensues set off a chain of events that will not only change the lives of those she loves, but also be a deadly reminder that repercussions are always harsher for women, especially black women, who dare to speak their truth. Decades later, as Opal considers a 2016 reunion with Nev, music journalist S. Sunny Shelton seizes the chance to curate an oral history about her idols. Sunny thought she knew most of the stories leading up to the cult duo’s most politicized chapter. But as her interviews dig deeper, a nasty new allegation from an unexpected source threatens to blow up everything. Provocative and chilling, The Final Revival of Opal & Nev features a backup chorus of unforgettable voices, a heroine the likes of which we’ve not seen in storytelling, and a daring structure, and introduces a bold new voice in contemporary fiction.

Sprachliche Verfestigung by Kathrin Steyer Summary

Dieser Band befasst sich aus unterschiedlichen theoretischen und empirischen Perspektiven mit sprachlicher Verfestigung an der Schnittstelle von Phraseologie und Konstruktionsgrammatik, wobei primär lexikalische Musterhaftigkeit im Mittelpunkt steht. Kennzeichnend für alle Beiträge ist eine starke korpusempirische Ausrichtung, die es ermöglicht, funktional verfestigte Sprachmuster und Phrasem-Konstruktionen auf der Basis sprachlicher Massendaten zu rekonstruieren und zu beschreiben. Die Untersuchungen liefern sowohl Impulse für eine neue musterbasierte Phraseologie- und Lexikontheorie als auch für die Weiterentwicklung gebrauchsbasierter konstruktionsgrammatischer Ansätze. Anhand zahlreicher Fallstudien werden darüber hinaus Vorschläge unterbreitet, wie diese Forschungen für den Sprachvergleich und die Fremdsprachenperspektive fruchtbar gemacht werden können.

Constructions across Grammars by Martin Hilpert,Jan-Ola Östman Summary

Up to now, most research in Construction Grammar has focused on single languages, most notably English. This volume aims to broaden the scope of Construction Grammar towards issues in bi- and multilingualism, second language learning, and generalizations across different languages and language varieties. The contributions in this volume show that speakers entertain generalizations across their repertoire of languages, which holds important implications for a multilingual Construction Grammar.

Vernetzte Kunstopalfolien aus Latices by Benjamin Viel Summary

Inhaltsangabe:Problemstellung: In den letzten Jahren wurden am Deutschen Kunststoff-Institut elastomere Filme aus Kernmantel-Latexpartikeln entwickelt, in denen die Partikelkerne ein kubisch-flächenzentriertes (face-centered cubic, fcc) Gitter aufbauen. Die Filme weisen damit die kolloidal-kristalline Ordnung von Opalen auf und werden deshalb als Kunstopalfolien bezeichnet. Die Latexkugeln bestehen aus einem harten, vernetzten Kern und einer aufgepfropften, elastomeren Schale. Die Filme werden aus diesen Latexkugeln mit einem neuartigen Verfahren hergestellt. Die Kugelschalen bilden in der Schmelze eine kontinuierliche Matrix, in die die Kugelkerne eingelagert sind. Unter uniaxialer Kompression fließt die Schmelze, wobei sich die Kugelkerne in einem fcc-Gitters anordnen. Mit diesem praxisnahen Verfahren können großflächige und bei Bedarf auch dicke Filme schnell hergestellt werden. Die Filme zeichnen sich durch das für Opale typische Farbenspiel aus, weil durch Beugung an der Gitterstruktur gemäß dem Bragg-Gesetz aus weißem Licht selektiv bestimmte Farben reflektiert werden. Dieses Verfahren ist den bisherigen Methoden zur Herstellung von Opalschichten, der Sedimentation oder Trocknung von Disperionen, überlegen, da mit diesen nur kleine Proben hergestellt werden können. Die elastomeren Kunstopalfolien weisen einen interessanten Effekt auf: Wenn sie deformiert werden, ändert sich die Reflexionsfarbe, weil das fcc-Gitter ebenfalls deformiert wird und sich dabei die Langperioden ändern. Allerdings waren die bisher hergestellten Kunstopalfolien nicht wirklich gummielastisch. Die Latexkugeln waren nicht miteinander vernetzt, so dass die Folien nur vorübergehend deformiert werden konnten. Aufgabe dieser Arbeit war es, chemisch vernetzte Kunstopalfolien herzustellen, die reversibel deformiert werden können, wobei die Deformation von entsprechenden Farbänderungen begleitet wird. Die Schwierigkeit bestand darin, dass die Vernetzung nicht zu früh einsetzen durfte. Die Latexmasse muss im Prozess der uniaxialen Kompression, in dem die kristalline Ordnung entsteht, noch fließfähig sein. Die Vernetzung durfte deshalb erst im fertigen, kolloidal-kristallin geordneten Film ablaufen. Dafür boten sich Verfahren der photochemischen Vernetzung oder der Hochtemperaturvernetzung an, die kostengünstig sein sollten. Im Einzelnen wurde folgendes Programm bearbeitet: Monodisperse Kern-Mantel-Latices mit einem Kern aus Polystyrol (PS) und einem elastomeren Mantel aus [...]

Routledge Handbook of Critical Obesity Studies by Michael Gard,Darren Powell,José Tenorio Summary

The Routledge Handbook of Critical Obesity Studies is an authoritative and challenging guide to the breadth and depth of critical thinking and theory on obesity. Rather than focusing on obesity as a public health crisis to be solved, this reference work offers divergent and radical strategies alongside biomedical and positivist discourses. Comprised of thirty nine original chapters from internationally recognised academics, as well as emerging scholars, the Handbook engages students, academics, researchers and practitioners in contemporary critical scholarship on obesity; encourages engagement of social science and related disciplines in critical thinking and theorising on obesity; enhances critical theoretical and methodological work in the area, highlighting potential gaps as well as strengths; relates critical scholarship to new and evolving areas of obesity-related practices, policies and research. This multidisciplinary and international collection is designed for a broad audience of academics, researchers, students and practitioners within the social and health sciences, including sociology, obesity science, public health, medicine, sports studies, fat studies, psychology, nutrition science, education and disability studies.

elexiko by Annette Klosa Summary

Diese Erfahrungsberichte aus der praktischen Arbeit an elexiko, einem Internetwörterbuch zum Gegenwartsdeutschen, erlauben den detaillierten Einblick in das Entstehen eines Online-Wörterbuchs. Sie behandeln die Einflüsse des Mediums Internet auf die Erarbeitung und Präsentation des Wörterbuchs, vor allem thematisieren sie aber auch, wie sich korpusgestütztes Arbeiten auf die Lemmatisierung und die Stichwortliste, auf die Artikelstruktur und auf die lexikografischen Angaben selbst auswirkt. elexiko ist ein nach wissenschaftlichen Grundsätzen erarbeitetes Wörterbuch, sodass Forschungsfragen mit praktischen Fragen Hand in Hand gehen. Dies wird in den verschiedenen Beiträgen des Bandes deutlich, die sich mit den Arbeitsgrundlagen (z.B. Korpus, Redaktionhandbuch), mit informatorisch-technischen Fragen (etwa Datenmodellierung, Ausbau der Zugriffsmöglichkeiten, Einsatz sprachtechnologischer Tools zur automatischen Gewinnung von Angaben), mit Forschungsfragen (z.B. nach der Vernetzung der lexikografischen Angaben untereinander, nach der nötigen Erweiterung der Klassifikation für pragmatische Relationen) sowie mit organisatorischen Fragen (beispielsweise Auswahl der Bearbeitungsteilwortschätze) beschäftigen.

Historische Lexikographie zwischen Tradition und Innovation by Anja Lobenstein-Reichmann,Peter O. Müller Summary

Die historische Lexikographie steht seit geraumer Zeit in einem besonderen Spannungsfeld zwischen den Anforderungen traditioneller Philologie, moderner Metalexikographie und technischer Innovation. Die Beiträge dieses Sammelbandes spiegeln die damit verbundenen Herausforderungen wie ihre Bewältigung. Sie zeigen, dass die historische Lexikographie konzeptionell wie institutionell durchaus in der Lage ist, sich von Generation zu Generation neu zu erfinden und sich damit den Herausforderungen zu stellen, die die jeweilige Gesellschaft ihnen abverlangt.

Argumentstruktur zwischen Valenz und Konstruktion by Stefan Engelberg,Meike Meliss,Kristel Proost,Edeltraud Winkler Summary

Der valenztheoretischen Behandlung von Argumentstrukturen stehen seit längerer Zeit konstruktionsgrammatische Theorien gegenüber, die die syntaktisch-semantischen Konstruktionen selbst als primäre Objekte der Sprachbeschreibung sehen, welche dann spezifische Lexeme als lexikalische Füllungen selegieren. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes zeigen, dass sich die beiden Ansätze nicht ausschließen müssen, sondern sich bei der theoretischen Modellierung der regelhaften und idiosynkratischen Aspekte von Argumentstrukturen auf fruchtbare Weise ergänzen können. Neben rein theoretisch orientierten Studien enthält der Band Beiträge, deren Gegenstand die Evaluierung von Methoden zur empirischen Fundierung dieser Theorien ist. Zudem wird der Phänomenbereich aus metalexikografischer und aus der Perspektive des Fremd- bzw. Zweitspracherwerbs betrachtet. Zum Teil werden in den Beiträgen kontrastive Analysen vorgenommen, vor allem hinsichtlich des Sprachenpaares Deutsch - Spanisch. Die angewandten Aspekte des Themas werden dabei immer auch an theoretische und empirische Überlegungen rückgebunden. Die Struktur des Bandes reflektiert den Fokus, den die einzelnen Beiträge setzen: Repräsentationen, Konstruktionen, Wortfelder und Methoden.

Zerstörungs- und Aufbaudiskurse by Nicole M. Wilk Summary

Die Publikation präsentiert einen diskursgrammatischen Zugriff auf die erinnerungskulturelle Musterbildung zur Kriegszerstörung der Städte Mannheim, Paderborn und Bremen und ihres Aufbaus. Ausgangspunkt der Diskursbeschreibung bilden kollokative Prägungen wie "in Schutt und Asche", "wurde Opfer von Zerstörungen" oder "erfolgte der Wiederaufbau", mit denen diskurs- und städtespezifische Sichtweisen auf historische Ereignisse anders als mit Schlüssel- und Schlagwörtern unbemerkt im Rücken der Akteure entstehen. Das Themenkorpus mit 1,34 Mio. Tokens beinhaltet Passagen aus Abhandlungen und Gebrauchstexten zur Stadtgeschichte zwischen 1945 und 2016, die die Städtezerstörung durch britische und amerikanische Bombentreffer im Zweiten Weltkrieg sowie die Neugestaltung in Text und Bild thematisieren. Die über Korpusberechnungen, korpusgrammatisch motivierte Annotationen und Slotauswertungen ermittelten Kontextualisierungsprofile der Diskurse wurden jeweils in die Belege zurückgespiegelt. Als zentrales Ergebnis zeigt sich anhand der diskursgrammatischen Präferenzen die Herausbildung einer Diskursverschränkung: Zerstörung wird sprachlich so perspektiviert, dass sie aus der Sicht eines gelungenen Neu-/ Wiederaufbaus "erzählt" wird.

Sprachliches Wissen zwischen Lexikon und Grammatik by Stefan Engelberg,Anke Holler,Kristel Proost Summary

Phänomene im Bereich von Valenz, Argumentstruktur, Diathesen, Kollokationen und Phrasemen dienen von jeher zur Bestimmung der Schnittstelle zwischen Lexikon und Grammatik. Mittlerweile sind allerdings grundsätzliche Zweifel an der Berechtigung der sprachtheoretischen Zweiteilung in Lexikon und Grammatik aufgekommen, auch weil die Entwicklungen im Bereich empirischer Methodik einen zunehmend besseren Einblick in die differenzierte Natur sprachlichen Wissens ermöglichen und uns mit semiproduktiven Prozessen, graduellen Kategoriezuordnungen, instabilen sprachlichen Mustern und frequenzgesteuerten Usualisierungen eigentlich regelhafter Strukturen konfrontieren. Die strikte Grenze zwischen der Grammatik als dem Ort des syntaktisch-semantisch Regelhaften und dem Lexikon als dem Repositorium des syntaktisch-semantisch Idiosynkratischen ist damit in Frage gestellt. Die Beiträge des Bandes betrachten den Bereich, wo Regelhaftes und Idiosynkratisches miteinander verwoben sind, sie führen Kontroversen zum Status von Konstruktionen und dem Verhältnis zwischen Lexikon und Grammatik, und sie zeigen, wie empirische Methoden der Korpuslinguistik, Psycho- und Neurolinguistik und Spracherwerbsforschung zur Klärung dieser Kontroversen beitragen.

Energy Transitions and the Future of Gas in the EU by Gökҫe Mete Summary

This book assesses the impact of energy transitions on the future of natural gas in the EU energy mix. As we approach 2050, the requirement to sharply decrease CO2 and other GHG emissions means that the role of gas infrastructure in the EU and beyond will change drastically. But what does such change mean? To address this question the author critically analyses the EU’s evolving natural gas market policy and law. Clearly structured throughout, the book explores the following questions: How can we maximise the potential of gas infrastructure to reduce carbon emissions? What are the lessons learned from decision making experience in the natural gas sector? Is the EU moving towards or away from a climate neutral gas sector? How will green and low carbon gas technologies be supported? And, are proposals to drive a growing share of hydrogen, biomethane, and synthetic methane to the system just an excuse to prolong fossil fuel operations? The book explores whether the EU will continue to subsidy natural gas projects or decarbonise the gas grid before 2050, and at what cost. Recommendations are proposed for a new regulatory and policy framework for development and operation of hydrogen pipelines, injection of biomethane into the existing gas grid and for pipelines carrying CO2. Filling an important gap in the literature, this book aims to develop an understanding of and clarify the complex range of legislation involved within a single analytical framework. Although the focus is mainly on the future of gas in the EU, the findings and recommendations are relevant for a much wider geography. This book will be an invaluable reference to policy makers and practitioners as well as researchers and students across the social sciences interested in the future of energy.

Moon Dog Magic (Rune Witch Book 1) by Jennifer Willis Summary

The fate of the world depends on an unwitting teenage witch and her overweight cat. Sally Dahl thought she was casting rune spells for a healthier planet, but a grievous error in her magickal calculations has her calling up legendary Berserker warriors instead—sworn into her service, and with bottomless junk food cravings. Worse, her mistake rebounds and ages her at an alarming rate. So much for saving the Earth. When she stumbles across a living god in Portland who promises to help, she thinks she’s out of danger. But Sally doesn’t know she’s the legendary Rune Witch, with greater magick in her hands than she could possibly imagine. Nor does she have a clue that Thor, Freya, Odin, and other survivors of the Norse pantheon are nearby, struggling without their supernatural powers to eke out a living, and trying desperately to stop one of their own from bringing about the destruction of the World Tree, and by extension, the Cosmos. With her own life on the line, can Sally harness her power and find her way to a new generation of Vikings in time to prevent Ragnarok? Moon Dog Magic is the first book in the Rune Witch urban fantasy series. If you like modern-day magick, action-packed mayhem, and ancient legends come to life, you’ll love the Rune Witch books.
