The History and Cultural Heritage of Chinese Calligraphy, Printing and Library Work (IFLA Publications)

In China the tradition of a book society is longer than anywhere else in the world. Chinese paper making, calligraphy and woodblock printing date from very early ages, but have for a very long time remained almost unknown to the Western world. At the IFLA satellite meeting Chinese Written and Printed Cultural Heritage and Library Work in Hangzhou in 2006 the richness of present day book historical research and library activities in China has been presented by more than sixty papers. This fine selection reflects the width and depth of this extremely important and immense Chinese heritage.

Partitions and Atoms of Clause Structure: Subjects, Agreement, Case and Clitics (Routledge Leading Linguists)

This collection brings together some of Dominique Sportiche's best work, including essays that are published here for the first time. The articles discuss the architecture of syntax in natural languages and Sportiche suggests that languages do not differ at all in their syntactic organization. This view takes shape through the analysis of a variety of syntactic configurations and essays examine what it means to be a "subject", how "case" marking functions, how it relates to "agreement", and how "pronominal clitic constructions" should be analyzed.

Theoretical Comparative Syntax: Studies in Macroparameters (Routledge Leading Linguists)

Collected for the first time in a single volume, these essays and articles by Naoki Fukui form an outline of some of the most significant and formative contributions to syntactic theory. Focusing particularly on the typological differences between English type language and Japanese type languages, Fukui examines the abstract parameters that both link and divide them. Linguistic universals are considered in the light of cross-linguistic variation and typological (parametric) differences are investigated from the viewpoint of universal principles. The book's main focus is the nature and structure of invariant principles and parameters (variables) and how they interact to give principled accounts to a variety of seemingly unrelated differences between English and Japanese. The contrasts between these two types of language is an ideal testing ground, since the languages are superficially different in virtually every aspect of their linguistic structures from word order and wh-movement, to grammatical agreement and case-marking systems, among many others. These articles constitute a considerable contribution to the development of the principles-and-parameters model in its exploration and refinement of theoretical concepts and fundamental principles of linguistic theory, leading to some of the basic insights that lie behind the minimalist program.

Essential Speech and Language Technology for Dutch: Results by the STEVIN-programme (Theory and Applications of Natural Language Processing)

The book provides an overview of more than a decade of joint R&D efforts in the Low Countries on HLT for Dutch. It not only presents a state of the art of HLT for Dutch in the areas covered, but, even more importantly, an account of the concrete results (resources and tools for Dutch) achieved that have now become available for both academia and industry worldwide. The contributions cover many areas of human language technology (for Dutch): corpus collection (including IPR issues) and building (in particular one corpus aiming at a collection of 500M words) lexicology, anaphora resolution, a semantic network, parsing technology, speech recognition, machine translation, text (summaries) generation, web mining, information extraction, and text to speech to name the most important ones. The book also shows how a medium-sized language (spanning two territories) can create a digital language infrastructure (resources, tools, etc.) as a basis for subsequent R&D. At the same time, it bundles contributions of almost all the HLT research groups in Flanders and the Netherlands, hence offering a view of their recent research activities. Targeted readers are mainly researchers in human language technology, in particular those focusing on Dutch. It concerns researchers active in larger networks such as CLARIN, META-net, FlareNet and who participate in conferences such as ACL, EACL, NAACL, COLING, RANLP, CICling, LREC, CLIN, DIR (both in the Low Countries), InterSpeech, ASRU, ICASSP, ISCA, EUSIPCO, CLEF, TREC, etc. In addition, some chapters are interesting for human language technology or policy makers and even for science policy makers in general.

Impact of Information Society Research in the Global South

The second volume in the SIRCA book series investigates the impact of information society initiatives by extending the boundaries of academic research into the realm of practice. Global in scope, it includes contributions and research projects from Asia, Africa and Latin America. The international scholarly community has taken a variety of approaches to question the impact of information society initiatives on populations in the Global South. This book addresses two aspects- Impact of research: How is the research on ICTs in the Global South playing a role in creating an information society? (e.g. policy formulation, media coverage, implementation in practice) and Research on impact: What is the evidence for the impact of ICTs on society? (i.e. the objectives of socio-economic development). This volume brings together a multiplicity of voices and approaches from social scientific research to produce an engaging volume for a variety of stakeholders including academics, researchers, practitioners, policy-makers and those in the business and civil sectors of society.

Understanding Spirited Away in Japanese (Japanese Edition)

Whatever level your Japanese language ability is at, there is always something to enjoy about Spirited Away.

This book is intended to be used in conjunction either with the film (for those wishing to work on their listening skills in Japanese) or the film comic/script (for those wishing to work on their reading skills in Japanese). A script for the film is NOT included.

What is included is an explanation of the various forms of grammar used in the film and a running dictionary that defines each word used during the movie. Listening practice can be frustrating when unknown words are used, because it is difficult to even decipher unknown words without listening to them over and over. The running dictionary removes that frustration since it defines words in the order in which they occur and allows you to focus on building up your listening skills.
