Chinese: A Linguistic Introduction

Chinese language is spoken by means of extra humans than the other language on the planet, and has a wealthy social, cultural and old historical past. it is a accomplished consultant to the linguistic constitution of chinese language, supplying an obtainable creation to every of the most important components. It describes the basics of its writing process, its pronunciation and tonal sound process, its morphology (how phrases are structured), and its syntax (how sentences are shaped) - in addition to its historic improvement, and the varied ways that it interacts with different languages.

Boolean Semantics for Natural Language

Within the spring of 1978, one of many authors of this booklet was once sitting in on a direction in good judgment for linguists given by way of the opposite writer. In trying to current a few of Montague's insights in an undemanding manner (hopefully keep away from­ ing the notation which many locate tough at first), the authors started dis­ cussions aimed in the direction of the development of an easy model-theoretical semantic gear that may be utilized on to a small English-like language and used to demonstrate the tools of formal logical interpretation.

Sample text

It is the timbre that tells us that we are hearing a violin and not a guitar. Integer multiples, two or greater, of a given frequency are called harmonics of that frequency. The string, woodwind, and brass instruments have harmonic partials. However, the drum, the xylophone, the bells, and most other percussion instruments have nonharmonic partials that are not integer multiples of a fundamental frequency. We will see in the discussion on psychoacoustics that the consonance of the Pythagorean intervals stems from the fact that the higher partial frequencies of a vibrating string are all harmonics of the fundamental.

BCE), Meno (translated by Benjamin Jowett) THE ANCIENT GREEKS EMBARKED HUMANITY on the Scientific VOVage of discovery that continues to the present day. The greatest of the Greek mathematical gifts to us from antiquity was the notion of proof. In this chapter, we look at certain fundamental accomplishments of rigorous Greek mathematical thought—two alternate developments of the theory of ratio and proportion, subtle methods of filling in the gaps between the whole numbers. Thereby the Greeks carried forward the development of the number system.

Were not all these answers given out of his own head? Meno: Yes, they were all his own. Socrates: And yet, as we were just now saying, he did not know? Meno: True. Socrates: But still he had in him those notions of his—had he not? Meno: Yes. Socrates: Then he who does not know may still have true notions of that which he does not know? Meno: He has. —PLATO (4277-347? BCE), Meno (translated by Benjamin Jowett) THE ANCIENT GREEKS EMBARKED HUMANITY on the Scientific VOVage of discovery that continues to the present day.
