  1. 1. The role of word accents in semantic processing in South Swedish

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Masterprogram: Språk och språkvetenskap; Lunds universitet/Fonetik

    Author : Jinhee Kwon; [2023]
    Keywords : Word accents; spoken word recognition; prediction; ERP; N400; Languages and Literatures;

    Abstract : Prosodic cues can aid speech processing by adding semantic information in lexical tones or functional information in intonational tones. Swedish word accents are considered to have stronger grammatical functions than semantic roles, although they are shaped by both lexical and intonational information structure. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lexical competition and predictive certainty in speech recognition: Modulations of pre-activation negativity amplitude by continuations, entropy and inhibition

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Masterprogram: Språk och språkvetenskap; Lunds universitet/Fonetik

    Author : Anna Hjortdal; [2022]
    Keywords : Speech perception; spoken word recognition; lexical competition; ERPs; PrAN.; Languages and Literatures;

    Abstract : A growing body of evidence suggests that speech recognition is facilitated by rapid activation of possible lexical candidates and subsequent competition and selection. An event-related potential (ERP) component 136-204 ms after word onset, the pre-activation negativity (PrAN), correlates with lexical competition. READ MORE

  3. 3. "For the fifty-eleventh time" : Examining cross-linguistic properties of hyperbolic numerals and quasi-numeral expressions through parallel text extraction

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för lingvistik

    Author : Amanda Kann; [2022]
    Keywords : hyperbole; hyperbolic quantification; numeral typology; parallel texts; quasi-numerals; hyperbol; hyperbolisk kvantifiering; kvasinumeriska uttryck; parallelltexter; räkneordstypologi;

    Abstract : In some languages, vague and exaggerated quantities can be represented using certain conventionalised numeral expressions with cross-linguistically varying values, such as Danish hundredesytten "117". Hyperbolic quantities can also be expressed using other quantifier expressions (such as English zillion) which, while they do not denote a specific numerical value, have both structural and functional similarities with exact numerals.

  4. 4. We’re in this together – joint and several : How interpreters in spoken languages cooperate in teams in Swedish courts of law

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Tolk- och översättarinstitutet

    Author : Lotta Hellstrand; [2022]
    Keywords : court interpreting; team interpreting; cooperation; coordination; interpreting as interaction; dialogue interpreting; ratified interpreter; bystander interpreter; interpreter’s role; legal interpreting; domstolstolkning; samarbete; samordning; tolkning som interaktion; dialogtolkning; tolkens roll; rättstolkning;

    Abstract : In sign-language interpreting and conference interpreting it is common for interpreters to work in pairs and well-established norms exist for how that cooperation is carried out. Working in pairs is becoming more common in Swedish courts for spoken language interpreting. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evaluating Swift concurrency on the iOS platform : A performance analysis of the task-based concurrency model in Swift 5.5

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Andreas Kärrby; [2022]
    Keywords : Task-based concurrency; Mobile; Benchmarking; Swift; iOS; Task-baserad concurrency; Mobil; Benchmarking; Swift; iOS;

    Abstract : Due to limitations in hardware, raising processor clock speeds is no longer the primary way to increase computing performance. Instead, computing devices are equipped with multiple processors (they are multi-core) to increase performance by enabling parallel execution of code. READ MORE
