Reliability and stability of lucid dream and nightmare frequency scales

Michael Schredl, Daniel Erlacher & Tadas Stumbrys
Lucid dream and nightmare frequencies vary greatly between individuals and to assess these differences reliable instruments are needed. The present study aimed to examine the reliability of eight-point scales for measuring lucid dream and nightmare frequencies. The scales were administered twice (with a four-week interval) to 93 sport students. A re-test reliability for the lucid dream frequency was found r=.89 (p<.001) and for the nightmare frequency r=.75 (p<.001). Both eight-point scales appear to be reliable...

Biome-BGC ESI version 1.4.1

Ferenc Horváth, Dóra Krasser & Péter Ittzés
Biome-BGC is a process-based biogeochemical model that can be used to simulate carbon, nitrogen and water fluxes of different terrestrial ecosystems. The model can help us to quantify a broad range of ecosystem service indicators. These newly developed measures include: annual wood increment, yearly production of grasslands or croplands, total average carbon stock, annual evapotranspiration, damping of ecosystem daily water outflow, living and dead biomass protecting the soil against erosion, litter and coarse woody debris...

Additive Particles in Romance and Germanic Languages: Are They Really Similar?

Sandra Benazzo & Christine Dimroth
The starting point of this paper is the observation of an unequal frequency of the additive particle auch in German as compared to the paucity of its French counterpart aussi, in L1 and L2 developmental data as well as in adult native speakers' production, which leads to an investigation of the reasons for the observed difference in language use. The paper brings together findings on the structure and discourse integration of utterances containing additive particles...

How Old Are the River Names of Europe? A Glottochronological Approach

Carsten Peust
The names of large rivers are among the diachronically most stable of all words. The present glottochronological study aims to quantify the lexical preservation rate of this set of words, more specifically of the names of the largest rivers of Europe. 210 river names are taken into consideration. Their preservation rate during the past 2000 years turns out to have been about 87%. Under the assumption that this observed rate can be extrapolated into the...

Biome-BGC CARBON 1.2

Ferenc Horváth, Dóra Krasser, Péter Ittzés & Zoltán Barcza
Biome-BGC is a process-based biogeochemical model that can be used to simulate carbon, nitrogen and water fluxes of different terrestrial ecosystems. A new version of the model, called Biome-BGC MuSo was developed to perform more realistic simulations in terms of soil hydrology, and improved ecosystem management options essentially (Hidy et al. 2012; Hidy & Barcza 2014). The Biome-BGC CARBON service executes a single simulation run at a given geographic location under that distinctive environmental circumstances,...

Fully Automatic Danger Zone Determination for SBRT in NSCLC

Michael Mix, Jose Dolz, Sonja Adebahr, Alin Chirindel, Montserrat Carles, Ursula Nestle, Tobias Fechter & Matthias Schlachter
Lung cancer is the major cause of cancer death worldwide. The most common form of lung cancer is non-small cell lung cancer(NSCLC). Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) has emerged as a good alternative to surgery in patients with peripheralstage I NSCLC, demonstrating favorable tumor control and low toxicity. Due to spatial relationship to several critical organs atrisk, SBRT of centrally located lesions is associated with more severe toxicity and requires modification in dose application andfractionation,...

Embedding additive particles in the sentence information structure: How L2 learners find their way through positional and prosodic patterns

Giuseppina Turco & Cecilia Maria Andorno
Since 1986, Klein pinpointed the 'embedding problem' among the main tasks L2 learners have to cope with in L2 speaking, the term referring to the need of linking the semantic content of a sentence to the information already available in the ongoing discourse. Research in L2 acquisition has shown that, even when the lexical and morphosyntactic structures needed to express specific information configurations are in place, learners can still lack the ability to use them...

Nicht-analoge französische und italienische Übersetzungen von restriktiven Partikeln im Roman Die Mittagsfrau von Julia Franck

Martina Nicklaus
The present paper discusses the translation of German nur and some synonymous restrictive particles into French and Italian in authorized literary translations. Only non-analogous translations of the restrictive particles have been considered, such as It. si limitò a sorridere for Germ. sie lächelte nur ('she limited herself to smiling' vs. 'she only smiled'). Three types of non-analogous equivalents of nur could be found in the data-base: cleft constructions, verbal periphrases and verb-infinitive combinations. The use...

La présente étude visait à bonifier et à évaluer les effets d’un programme sur l’apprentissage à l’utilisation du transport en commun chez les aînés. Le Programme d’Apprentissage à...

"Nebelsprech" – Sprechen in der parlamentarischen Demokratie

Martin Haase
"Fogspeech" is a variant of Orwellian Newspeak typical of parliamentary Democracy: As it is important in a Democracy to find vast support for political projects, linguistic strategies from advertising are used, esp. positively connotated words, positive framing, hyperbolic speech. At the same time, politicians who want to avoid direct responsibility tend to use nebular expressions, set phrases, passive and impersonal constructions etc. A number of examples are discussed.

Humour With A Purpose: Creativity With Language In Facebook Status Updates

Jenny Lewin-Jones
This paper examines everyday linguistic creativity and humour in Facebook status updates. Analysis of the updates, collected in 2011 from 60 UK users, shows how people achieve particular humorous tones through creative combinations of lexis and syntax, adding reinforcements such as innovative punctuation to tighten the construction of the update. The linguistic features they use are not in themselves novel, but the creativity lies in the individuals' effective selection and use of them. The language...

Basel, Universitätsbibliothek, F III 15 : Isidorus, Etymologiae, lib. II-XIX

Hispalensis Isidorus, Heinrich Pantaleon & Christian Wurstisen
Isidore of Seville’s “Etimologies” combine an outline of all knowledge with a description of the world. In the beginning, this Basel manuscript differs from the usual text structure. Instead of a division into books, each of the texts about the seven liberal arts Artes liberales is introduced with its own title. The manuscript originated in France and used to belong to the Fulda Monastery, until it came to Basel in the 16th century.

La narrazione dell’Oriente e la svolta letteraria di Cristina Trivulzio Belgiojoso: il testo-laboratorio dei "Souvenirs dans l’exil"

Flavia Caporuscio
L’articolo analizza la svolta letteraria di Cristina Trivulzio Belgiojoso individuando nei "Souvenirs dans l’exil" (1850) il testo di transito che documenta una tappa fondamentale nell’evoluzione della scrittura dell’autrice. L’opera, che nasce come una raccolta di lettere inviate dall’esilio all’amica francese Caroline Jaubert, esibisce una scrittura ibrida, contrassegnata da una commistione di generi sapientemente organizzati all’interno della cornice formale della lettera privata, e si configura come un vero e proprio testo-laboratorio che presenta manifestamente al lettore...
