Die Verdopplung des Verbs laa 'lassen' im Zürichdeutschen

Katja Schlatter Gappisch
In some Swiss German dialects the verb laa 'let' can be doubled under certain conditions. The paper discusses the factors accounting for this variation. It investigates the syntactic environment of laa-constructions in the dialect of Zurich. The analysis of the data suggests that, first, the laa-doubling is favoured in certain constructions such as, for instance, imperative constructions. Second, the elder informants use the laa-doubling more often than the younger ones.

Zur linguistischen Sinnsuche in- und ausserhalb von schriftsprachlichen Korpora. Eine Replik auf Wolfgang Teuberts Beitrag

Raphael Berthele
In this reply to Wolfgang Teubert's contribution, some of the central tenets of his position are questioned. The primacy of literacy for linguistic investigations as advocated by Teubert is challenged, since the most important function of language is oral communication, and most of the world's languages exist exclusively in oral use. Counter-evidence to Teubert's claim according to which oral languages do not develop metalinguistic awareness (as e.g. the concept of "word") is given. The author...

The Linguistics of Social Networking: A Study of Writing Conventions on Facebook

Carmen Pérez-Sabater
Scholarly research on computer-mediated communication discourse has mainly centred upon the linguistic characteristics of emails, focusing on the formal and informal features and the orality involved in this form of communication. This paper presents a new insight into the study of computer-mediated communication (CMC) by analysing a fairly recent genre of computer-mediated communication, comments posted on the new social networking websites. The research undertaken examines the comments published on the official Facebook sites of some...

Developing a tool for crowd-sourcing to Verify a Radiation Oncology Ontology: a Summer Project

Joshua Pratt, Evan Morrison, Vishal Pandian & Alexis Andrew Miller
We have been unable to find a verified, published Radiation Oncology Ontology. We undertook the process of verifying a Radiation Oncology Ontology with a mixture of crowd-sourcing and expert-based approaches to verify relationships in the ontology. We used a natural language based approach to portray concepts and relationships, surveying users to assess the relationships between concepts in the Radiation Oncology ontology. The work used a description of a patient's history expressed in XML. The natural...

RadOnc: An R Package for Analysis of Dose-Volume Histogram and Three-Dimensional Structural Data

Reid F. Thompson
Purpose/Objectives: Dose volume histogram (DVH) data are generally analyzed within the context of a treatment planning system (TPS) on a per-patient basis, with evaluation of single-plan or comparative dose distributions. However, TPS software generally cannot perform simultaneous comparative dosimetry among a cohort of patients. The same limitations apply to parallel analyses of three-dimensional structures and other clinical data. Materials/Methods: We developed a suite of tools ("RadOnc" package) using R statistical software to better compare pooled...

Traduire l'ironie. L'exemple d'une œuvre romanesque de N. Kazantzaki et ses traductions française et anglaise

Maria Constantinou
This paper sets out to study the ironical effects related to morphological, rhetorical and macro-structural cues of the novel by N. Kazantzakis's Ο τελευταίος πειρασμός (1951), and then to examine the degree of their transposition in the French and English translations, carried out by Saunier (1959 La dernière tentation du Christ) and by Bien (1960 The Last Temptation of Christ) respectively. Initially, from a theoretical point of view some definitions of irony as a thought...

The Functional Motivation of the High Tone Syllable in Yorùbá: A Critique

Tèmítọ́pẹ́ Olúmúyìwá
Bisang and Sonaiya (1999) call the high tone syllable (the HTS) in Yorùbá language "an operator which actualises or validates the relationship between a predicate and a subject within a state of affairs". This paper shows that this view is faulty because it makes wrong predictions concerning the element in the language.

L’œuvre d’Igiaba Scego, femme et écrivaine : une vision interculturelle de l’héritage postcolonial

Vittorio Valentino
A new literary phenomenon, still in its infancy, is slowly growing in Italy: migrants’ children, born and/or raised in Italy, have begun to write. These writers evolves in italian society even if their origins are far more distant that the Mediterranean area: they include Congolese and Somalis, whose perspective rejects the idea of a monolithic sense of belonging. Their goal is to find a place to live without denying their origins or the community where...

Die sprachlichen Realisierungen der "Verstärker" in den Argumentationsprozessen. Kontrastive Analyse der modificateurs surréalisants im Deutschen und im Tschechischen

Marie Krappmann
This article deals with, from a contrasting point of view, the linguistic means that amplify the applicability of the lexical predicate in argumentation processes. The theoretical basis consists of the works of Anscombre and Ducrot, which have treated the specific role of linguistic modifiers in argumentation processes since the 1970s, as well as a comprehensive study by Atayan (2006). Special attention is devoted to the modificateurs surréalisants (M.S.) defined by Negroni (1995). In everyday communicative...

Operations Research Methods for Optimization in Radiation Oncology

Matthias Ehrgott & Allen Holder
Operations Research has a successful tradition of applying mathematical analysis to a wide range of applications, and problems in Medical Physics have been popular over the last couple of decades. The original application was in the optimal design of the uence map for a radiotherapy treatment, a problem that has continued to receive attention. However, Operations Research has been applied to other clinical problems like patient scheduling, vault design, and image alignment. The overriding theme...

The Caetani-Mathews Papers: Introducing René Char to the American Readership

Lorenzo Salvagni
In this article I intend to shed light on the work of Marguerite Caetani, modern and cosmopolitan editor and patron in the context of post-World War II literary history. "Hypnos Waking", the first anthology of René Char's poetry ever to appear in the United States, was published by Random House in 1956. The volume, which pioneered a long series of "Char studies" in the US, was translated by American scholar Jackson Mathews and included works...

Motion Descriptions in English and Greek: A Cross-Typological Developmental Study of Conversations and Narratives

Demetra Katis & Stathis Selimis
Theoretical claims about typologically constrained differences in how speakers habitually describe physical motion are tested through three cross-linguistic developmental studies. Three types of data are analyzed in Greek and English, languages here characterized respectively as Verb- and Satellite-framed in the coding of motion: spontaneous conversations between adults and children aged 1;8–4;6 as well as two types of narratives elicited through pictures and a film from 4-, 7-, 10-year olds and adults. Results show, on the...

Code-switching as appraisal resource in talking about third parties

Inke Du Bois & Nicole Baumgarten
This article explores the function of code-switching in talking about absent third parties. The basis for the investigation is a corpus of sociolinguistic individual and group interviews with German immigrants in the US and American immigrants in Germany. In these interviews, the interviewees are asked to recount their migration experiences and their lives before and after migration. For each individual speaker, the interviewer and – in the group interviews – the other participants in the...

A Rational Informatics-enabled approach to Standardised Nomenclature of Contours and Volumes in Radiation Oncology Planning

Alexis Andrew Miller
The standardising of nomenclature in the radiotherapy planning process has deep implications for the abilityof the profession to examine the adequacy of construction of radiotherapy plans in outcomes research, particularly in relation to disease control and toxicity generation. This paper proposes an interim standardisednomenclature which can be used by any institution as a template for a mappable local standard.The nomenclature is systematically constructed using the Foundational Model of Anatomy, ICRU Report 50 and ICRU report...

Sguardo di madre – Ordine simbolico, colpa e liberazione in "Una bambina e basta" di Lia Levi

Andrea Sartori
This book by Lia Levi can be read both as a document about the persecution of the Jews in Italy, and as a testimonial account of a difficult childhood. Here the young protagonist is in search of herself, in a world permeated with chauvinist rhetoric. This article first analyses the guilt-inducing mechanisms of the symbolic order of anti-Semitism, and reveals the similarities between this process and ideologies of gender domination. The article then borrows the...

How to Deal with Non-Dominant Languages – Metalinguistic Discourses on Low German in the Nineteenth Century

Robert Langhanke & Nils Langer
This paper discusses nineteenth-century metalinguistic discussions of Low German, an authochthonous of Northern Germany, which, having lost its status as a written language suitable for formal discourse during the Early Modern period, has since been reduced to the spoken domain. During the nineteenth century the language was on the verge of enjoying a revival, with original poetry being published and extensive discussions as to whether Low German ought to play a role in formal education....

Noch so 'ne Phrase, Faust auf die Nase! – Eine phraseologische Untersuchung des Nerv-Sprech

Florian Schulze
Spiegel has published a web dictionary of "Nerv-Sprech"-units, which functions as a ready-made corpus. This article categorizes these phraseological units as slogans, pragmatic or predicative phrasemes. Furthermore, in order to evaluate the validity of the term "Nerv-Sprech" from the point of view of the language system, I examine whether there are semantic or structural modifying aspects that are dominant among the phrasemes (and if so, which ones). Finally, a ludic function of "Nerv-Sprech" is postulated...
