The Relationship of Nitrate Reductase Activity to Uptake and Assimilation of Atmospheric 15NO2 -Nitrogen in Needles of Norway Spruce (Picea abies [L.] Karst.)

Christian Brunold, Peter Von Ballmoos & Stefan Nussbaum
Using NO2, relations between nitrate reductase activity and stomatal conductance, N-uptake and N-glutamate were studied in the two youngest needles flushes of potted Norway spruce (Picea abies [L.] Karst.). There were linear correlations between the stomatal conductance and the N-uptake and between the N-uptake and nitrate reductase (E.C. activity. The N labelling of free glutamate shows the assimilation of NO2 from the atmosphere in addition to the nitrogen from the soil. The portion of...

Die Einstellungen der Bevölkerung zu staatlicher Regulierung

Zürich, Braginsky Collection, S7 : Megillat Esther (מגילת אסתר) / Esther Scroll

The Esther story in this megillah (pl. megillot) isn't presented as an historic drama, but rather as a funny satire. The character of Alsatian Jewish life is captured in the ornamentation of the scroll: the whimsical imagery includes peasant figures in colorful local costume and reflections of folk humor. Lively figures, several shown strolling with walking sticks in hand and others gesturing, are interspersed with human busts, owls, and a gargoyle, while the Hebrew text...

The diffusion of /l/ -vocalization in Swiss German

David Britain, Marie-Jose Kolly, Iwar Werlen, Dieter Studer-Joho & Adrian Leemann
Several western Swiss German dialects roughly grouped around the nation's capital Bern show /l/ > [u] vocalization in various contexts. The spatial boundaries of /l/-vocalization in Swiss German are suspected to have been expanding since being described in the Linguistic Atlas of German-Speaking Switzerland in the middle of the 20th century. The present study assesses the overall expansion of /l/-vocalization by means of a rapid anonymous survey in 20 urban regional centers situated just beyond...

Rewriting Histories and Geographies: Cosmopolitan Moments in Contemporary Indian Writing in English

Annie Madeleine Cottier Bucher
In order to grasp the imaginative geographical and historical scope of contemporary Indian writing in English, this thesis claims that it is necessary to think about literature beyond the paradigms of national, postcolonial or even transnational diasporic literatures. It is asserted that cosmopolitanism, which is here understood to be a concept that encompasses the negotiation of the ethics and practice of migration, community, responsibility, difference and sameness, offers the possibility of thinking critically about migration...

Crowdsourcing language change with smartphone applications

Marie-José Kolly, Elvira Glaser, David Britain, Ross Purves & Adrian Leeman
Crowdsourcing linguistic phenomena with smartphone applications is relatively new. In linguistics, apps have predominantly been developed to create pronunciation dictionaries, to train acoustic models, and to archive endangered languages. This paper presents the first account of how apps can be used to collect data suitable for documenting language change: we created an app, Dialäkt Äpp (DÄ), which predicts users’ dialects. For 16 linguistic variables, users select a dialectal variant from a drop-down menu. DÄ then...

Caregiver Responses to the Language Mixing of a Young Trilingual

Sarah Louise Chevalier
The situation once described by Hoffmann (1985), in which children grow up exposed to three languages from an early age, is a reality for an increasing number of families. In Europe – as elsewhere – greater mobility is leading to greater numbers of mixed-language couples (Piller 2002), and, by extension, multilingual families. For such families, questions concerning the acquisition and maintenance of three or more languages in a natural environment are of direct relevance. Researchers...
