Semantic Coding

Semantic Coding

Package enables semantic highlighting for JavaScript code. Identifiers are highlighted in different colors (the same identifier always in the same color) while everything else (like language keywords) is displayed in various shades of gray. This approach runs contrary to classical ideas about syntax highlighting but is rapidly becoming very popular. In addition to being a useful…

Example semantics and pragmatics

Example semantics and pragmatics

A branch of linguistics concerned with the use of language in social contexts and the ways in which people produce and comprehend meanings through language. (For alternative definitions, see Examples and Observations, below.) The term pragmatics was coined in the 1930s by the philosopher C.W. Morris. Pragmatics was developed as a subfield of linguistics in the 1970s. See Examples…

Semantics and pragmatics definition

Semantics and pragmatics definition

Question: What principles or definitions have been offered in the literature for distinguishing pragmatics from semantics? he question of how semantics relates to pragmatically oriented theories is, Chierchia and McConnell-Ginet (1990) say, wide open. For them, semantics deals with those aspects of meaning that remain constant whenever a given expression is uttered: Semantics…

Denotational semantics do while

COMP 317: Semantics of Programming Languages Denotational semantics describes the meaning of a program as some mathematical object: this is the program s denotation. Typically, the denotation of a program is a function that maps states to states. Given a program , its denotation, [[ ]], is the function that takes a state as argument and maps it to the state that results from…

Formal semantics and pragmatics for natural languages

Formal semantics and pragmatics for natural languages

Semantics as the study of meaning in natural languages, and pragmatics as the study of how utterances are interpreted, might seem to be one and the same study. Given that the meaning of an expression is the information that that expression conveys, and that interpretation by users of the language is the retrieval of information from expressions, it may be hard to envisage that…

Language change semantic

Language change semantic

The effect of relative language proficiency on the spatial distribution and magnitude of BOLD signal change was evaluated by studying two groups of right-handed English–Mandarin bilingual participants with contrasting language proficiencies as they made semantic judgments with words and characters. Greater language proficiency corresponded to shorter response times and greater…

Semantic Frames

Semantic Frames

In Frame semantics, a semantic frame is defined as a coherent structure of concepts that are related such that without knowledge of all of them, one does not have complete knowledge of one of the either, and are in that sense types of gestalt. Frames are based on recurring experiences. Frames are evoked, among other things, by words as the semantic conceptual content of the…
