Semantics via f-structure rewriting

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…

Frame semantics cognitive linguistics

Frame semantics cognitive linguistics

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…

Title : Using semantic tables in XML query processing Abstract : Processing a twig pattern query in XML document includes structural search and content search. Most existing algorithms only focus on structural search. They treat content nodes the same as…

Headers and Footers

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…

Semantics search

Semantics search

There is just too much confusion about so-called “Boolean search” so I’d like to clarify a few basic things: Booleans are simply three LOGICAL OPERATORS: AND OR NOT. In search engines you don’t need the AND because its always assumed by default, so forget about it. That leaves you with two: OR and NOT. The The OR is called a logical disjunction, sometimes an inclusive disjunction…

If your business is like mine, you ve been hearing a lot of HTML5 this and HTML5 that lately. Lots of talk about the Flash killing video element, animations with canvas, geolocation, and much more. In fact, the buzz around HTML5 has been extended to include things that aren t even HTML5 at all. All over the web, people are talking about the new expressive capabilities of…

In programming language theory, semantics is the field concerned with the rigorous mathematical study of the meaning of programming languages. It does so by evaluating the meaning of syntactically legal strings defined by a specific programming language, showing the computation involved. In such a case that the evaluation would be of syntactically illegal strings, the result…

The documentation of a database includes its conceptual schema, that formalizes the semantics of the data, and its logical schema that translates the former according to an operational database model. Important engineering processes such as database and program evolution rely on a complete and accurate database documentation. In many cases, however, these schemas are missing…

DT: The author of the following quote resists the idea that a primary function of an RDBMS is indeed to manage the meaning of the data, through constraints. If we step back and look at what RDBMS is, we’ll no doubt be able to conclude that, as its name suggests (i.e. Relational Database Management System), it is a system that specializes in managing the data in a relational…

Prefrontal cortical function was examined during semantic encoding and repetition priming using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), a noninvasive technique for localizing regional changes in blood oxygenation, a correlate of neural activity. Words studied in a semantic (deep) encoding condition were better remembered than words studied in both easier and more difficult…
