    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : Erika Frank; [2021]
    Keywords : Bedrock; rock type; correlation; cluster analysis; multi-dimensional scaling; individual differences scaling; discriminant analysis;

    Abstract : Groundwater analyses have revealed high concentrations of the toxic element arsenic around Stockholm and Mälardalen, a problem that often is linked to high levels of arsenic in the bedrock and which could be escalated by the many construction projects in the same region. However, it is unknown what part of the bedrock is causing the contamination. READ MORE

  3. 3. The encoding of bad and evil : A cross-linguistic study using a parallel Bible corpus

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för lingvistik

    Author : Nina Knobloch; [2021]
    Keywords : bad; evil; negative adjectives; lexical typology; semantic maps; negation; broad evil; narrow evil; dålig; ond; negativa adjektiv; lexikal typologi; semantiska kartor; negation; broad evil; narrow evil;

    Abstract : This study investigates the cross-linguistic encoding of bad and evil expressions. Using parallel data from the Bible corpus consisting of translations of the New Testament into 30 languages, probabilistic semantic maps have been created using Multi-Dimensional scaling. READ MORE

  4. 4. Turning Back to Again Using Parallel Texts : Structuring the Semantic Domain of Repetition and Restitution

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för lingvistik

    Author : Althea Löfgren; [2020]
    Keywords : typology; semantics; repetition; restitution; semantic maps; Multi-Dimensional Scaling; parallel texts;

    Abstract : This study investigates expressions akin to ‘again’, which inhabit the semantic domain of repetition and restitution, from a cross-linguistic perspective. Using massively parallel corpora as the primary source of data the aim of this study is to investigate whether the encoding of repetitive and restitutive meaning is a cross-linguistically valid difference and if there are any patterns in the language specific variation of the repetitive and restitutive domain.

  5. 5. The influence of habitat structural complexity on invertebrate diversity: A comparison between an impacted and a pristine coral reef

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i biologi

    Author : Michelle de Beer; [2013]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Abstract Habitat complexity is shown to be an important driver of invertebrate diversity on impacted coral reefs when the diversity supported by a comparative unit of habitat complexity is compared to that of a pristine coral reef. The more structurally complex pristine reef does not support the conventionally expected greatest amount of diversity, instead an upper limit threshold to habitat complexity is observed. READ MORE
