Product semantics redirects here. The semantic turn refers to a paradigm shift in the design of artifacts – industrial, graphic, informational, architectural, and social – from an emphasis on how artifacts ought to function to what they mean to those affected by them – semantics being a concern for meaning. It provides a new foundation for professional design, a detailed…

Formal semantics for Time in Databases

* Final gross prices may vary according to local VAT. Abstract Aggregate queries are frequent in massive database applications. Their execution tends to be time consuming and costly. Therefore efficiently executing aggregate queries is very important. Semantic cache is a novel method for aiding query evaluation that reuses results of previously answered queries. But little…

Article semantics Linguistics

Annual Review of Applied Linguistics (2010), 30:231-247 Cambridge University Press The article identifies four different types of meaning situated in different modules of language. Such a modular view of language architecture suggests that there may be differential difficulties of acquisition for the different modules. It is argued that second language (L2) acquisition of meaning…

Background Books and other text documents keep much of the human knowledge. For that reason, it is important to develop computational tools that extract and synthesize information from natural language text with the aim of building large-scale knowledge bases. The task of machine understanding of textual documents mainly parses and transforms unstructured text into a structured…

Formal semantics programming languages

Formal semantics programming languages

Provides the basic mathematical techniques necessary for those who are beginning a study of the semantics and logics of programming languages. These techniques will allow students to invent, formalize, and justify rules with which to reason about a variety of programming languages. Although the treatment is elementary, several of the topics covered are drawn from recent research…

Dr. Kevin Donnelly “People would argue furiously, although they essentially agreed with each other” a former politician told me this week, reflecting the way that words can obscure meaning. I was thinking about this dynamic this week on my way to a meeting with, Dr. Kevin Donnelly, a critic of the Australian Curriculum along with stakeholders and academics concerned with the…

Cognitive psychology is well-known for attempting to use individual cognitive – and SPECIFIC – failures as catalysts for larger discussions about the structure of processes critical to human rational thinking. Attached is a power point presentation I created as an undergraduate after reviewing numerous case studies. It summarizes my own commentary re: both the case studies…

Markup This part is mainly meant to be auxiliary to the writing process and likely to be largely dropped as the draft advances, using pointers instead to existing documents covering this ground. It is expected to be largely skipped by experts but to be vital for non-experts who attempt to understand the present document. Controlled vocabularies 16. Common vocabularies are…

Semantics via f-structure rewriting

The Orc calculus is a simple, yet powerful theory of concurrent computations with great versatility and practical applicability to a very wide range of applications, as it has been amply demonstrated by the Orc language, which extends the Orc calculus with powerful programming constructs that can be desugared into the underlying formal calculus. This means that for: (i) theoretical…

Semantics meaning in computer

Semantics meaning in computer

Semantics are the meaning of various elements in the program (or whatever). For example, let s look at this code: int width, numberOfChildren; Both of these variables are integers. From the compiler s point of view, they are exactly the same. However, judging by the names, one is the width of something, while the other is a count of some other things. numberOfChildren = width;…

HTML5 Semantic article list

HTML5 Semantic article list

I’d use an article for each snippet (i.e. a news teaser). Each article contains an h1 element for the heading, an img element for the image, and p element(s) for the text. As you probably want to link to a full version, you could enclose all elements in one a element (which is allowed in HTML5), or the heading etc. only. So it could look like: Only use figure if this image…

Charles J. Fillmore, one of the world’s greatest linguists — ever — died last Thursday, February 13, at the age of 84 in San Francisco. He was the discoverer of frame semantics, who did the essential research on the nature of framing in thought and language. He discovered that we think, largely unconsciously, in terms of conceptual frames — mental structures that organize our…

Oxford University Press, 2007 View on Amazon Evolutionary approaches to linguistics have notoriously had a rather chequered history, being associated with vague and unfalsifiable claims about the motivations for the origins of language. It seems as though the subject has only recently come in from the cold, and yet there are already rich traditions of research in several distinct…

On the last day of TXJS, a developer asked me: Doesn’t Object Oriented CSS leave you with a pile of presentation based class names? Each layer in the web stack has its own architecture. You wouldn’t expect the DB schema to be used to architect the PHP middleware, and yet people expect that of the HTML and CSS. HTML needs to be written with a sense of the meaning of the data…

Headers and Footers

Headers and footers are areas in the top, bottom, and side margins of each page in a document. You can insert or change text or graphics in headers and footers. For example, you can add page numbers, the time and date, a company logo, the document title or file name, or the author s name. Insert the same header or footer on each page Microsoft Office Word 2007 includes many…
