Das Korpus des Projekts "Mischphänomene zwischen Dialekt und Standardsprache in der Deutschschweizer Diglossie". Über die Schwierigkeit, selten vorkommende Phänomene zu dokumentieren

Marina Petkova
An ongoing research project at the University of Fribourg/Freiburg (Switzerland) investigates relatively infrequent forms of usage of the dialect and the standard variety of a language. The project focuses on verbal realisations in which both varieties exist side by side but which do not constitute cases of code-switching in the traditional sense; that is, the code changes do not serve a local pragmatic function and/or their salience has diminished as a result of their high...

Using smooth pursuit calibration for difficult-to-calibrate participants

Blignaut, Pieter; University Of The Free State, South Africa
Although the 45-dots calibration routine of a previous study (Blignaut, 2016) provided very good accuracy, it requires intense mental effort and the routine proved to be unsuccessful for young children who struggle to maintain concentration. The calibration procedures that are normally used for difficult-to-calibrate participants, such as autistic children and infants, do not suffice since they are not accurate enough and the reliability of research results might be jeopardised.Smooth pursuit has been used before for...

Pourquoi enseigner la littérature (et croire encore)?

Sylviane Dupuis
Car il en va de rien moins que de la possibilité (exclusivement humaine) de se représenter à soi-même, de se connaître et de s’inventer, de dialoguer, de questionner le monde, les choses et les consciences en questionnant leurs représentations ; de penser l’altérité, la finitude, ou le mal ; de riposter à l’informe, à la violence primitive, à l’inexplicable ou à la mort, par des textes et des œuvres capables d’allier forme et signification (Jean...

Presseförderung als Mittel gegen Medienkonzentration und für die publizistische Vielfalt? Quasi-experimentelle Untersuchung der Schweiz im Vergleich zu Belgien, Österreich, Irland sowie Deutschland

Mathias Oertel & Steffen Kolb
Mass media play a certain role for society in democratic systems. Communication research faces this role by analyzing media performance. Well performing media provide the society with a diversity of topics, opinions, and sources. Mostly economically driven processes of media concentration endanger media diversity by decreasing the amount of independent media companies most probably causing less diverse media content. To counteract processes of media concentration in the field of daily newspapers many countries have established...

Partikeln in indogermanischen Sprachen

Rosemarie Lühr
The typical Old Indo-European languages are pro-drop-languages. Therefore, the usage of pronouns for expressing the governing subject does not apply to standard sentences. As to be expected emphasized subject pronouns can then be used in marked situations – especially in the case of a contrastive topic. However, there is a third use that is not as trivial in the first place: The emphasized subject pronouns are supplemented by an additional particle. This third usage has...

Influences of dwell time and cursor control on the performance in gaze driven typing

Helmert, Jens R.; Applied Cognitive Research / Institute Of Psychology III, Technische Universitaet Dresden, Velichkovsky, Boris M.; Applied Cognitive Research / Institute Of Psychology III, Technische Universitaet Dresden & Pannasch, Sebastian; Applied Cognitive Research / Institute Of Psychology III, Technische Universitaet Dresden
In gaze controlled computer interfaces the dwell time is often used as selection criterion. But this solution comes along with several problems, especially in the temporal domain: Eye movement studies on scene perception could demonstrate that fixations of different durations serve different purposes and should therefore be differentiated. The use of dwell time for selection implies the need to distinguish intentional selections from merely per-ceptual processes, described as the Midas touch problem. Moreover, the feedback...

Eye movements and attention in visual feature search with graded target-distractor-similarity

Heße, Uta; Department Of Psychology, Martin-Luther-University Halle, Germany, Wienrich, Carolin; Department Of Psychology, Martin-Luther-University Halle, Germany & Müller-Plath, Gisela; Department Of Psychology, Martin-Luther-University Halle, Germany
We conducted a visual feature search experiment in which we varied the target-distractor-similarity in four steps, the number of items (4, 6, and 8), and the presence of the target. In addition to classical search parameters like error rate and reaction time (RT), we analyzed saccade amplitudes, fixation durations, and the portion of reinspections (recurred fixation on an item with at least one different item fixated in between) and refixations (recurred fixation on an item...

Conception d’un outil d’évaluation du fonctionnement quotidien pour les personnes présentant un trouble de personnalité limite, le Fonctionnement au quotidien avec un trouble de la personnalité Borderline (FAB)

Pierre David, Richard Boyer, Nadine Larivière, Julie J. Desrosiers, Félix Antoine Bérubé, Johanne Desrosiers & Frédéric Pérusse
Introduction. Le trouble de la personnalité limite (TPL) entraîne des conséquences majeures sur le quotidien des personnes qui en sont affectées. Sans une iden­ti­fi­cation rigoureuse des sphères fonctionnelles déficientes, la réadaptation peut s’avé­rer imprécise. Les mesures actuelles du fonctionnement utilisées auprès de la cli­en­tèle ayant un TPL sont générales et ne couvrent pas toutes les sphères déficitaires pour ce trouble.Objectif. Cet article présente le processus de conception d’un questionnaire visant à éva­luer le fonctionnement au...

Comment exploiter les 'corpus-surprise' ?

Chantal Rittaud-Hutinet
To what extent non-recorded oral corpora may constitute objects of analysis of pragmatic meaning? These corpora are heard by chance: on the radio, on television, in the street, a shop, a means of transport or generally in any conversational interaction in which the linguist participates, but had not previously planned to record for his research. The problem of the use of these corpora in linguistics is all the more crucial since the aim, in phonopragmatics,...

Vadianus Joachim
The manuscript today known as the “Kleinere Chronik der Äbte von St. Gallen” (Lesser chronicle of the abbots of St. Gall) is an autograph; it describes the history of the Monastery of St. Gall from its beginnings under Abbot Othmar around the year 720 up to the year 1532, that is, to the period of the Reformation. The emphasis initially is on the history of the monastery; from the 13th century onward, what appears more...

Eye typing in application: A comparison of two systems with ALS patients

Pannasch, Sebastian; Applied Cognitive Research/Psychology III, Technische Universitaet Dresden, Velichkovsky, Boris M.; Applied Cognitive Research/Psychology III, Technische Universitaet Dresden, Malischke, Susann; Applied Cognitive Research/Psychology III, Technische Universitaet Dresden, Helmert, Jens R.; Applied Cognitive Research/Psychology III, Technische Universitaet Dresden & Storch, Alexander; Department Of Neurology, Technische Universitaet Dresden
A variety of eye typing systems has been developed during the last decades. Such systems can provide support for people who lost the ability to communicate, e.g. patients suffering from motor neuron diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). In the current retrospective analysis, two eye typing applications were tested (EyeGaze, GazeTalk) by ALS patients (N = 4) in order to analyze objective performance measures and subjective ratings. An advantage of the EyeGaze system was...
