HTML5 Doctor semantics

Having recently undertaken a major overhaul to our own website, a large part of which was aligning the code to HTML5 standards, we stumbled into a minefield of semantics. Now don t get me wrong, we have no issue understanding headers and footers. We don t fall to pieces whenever we have to consider if a set of links represents a major navigational block. But, where we are…

General semantics in Psychotherapy

General semantics in Psychotherapy

The aim of this paper is to show the relevance of the theory of general semantics for the psychotherapy field. General semantics was developed by Alfred Korzybski during the last century.

What are semantics in language development?

For all of us, the process of how we learn to use words begins with the expression of our own intents. Initially, we use words, pictures, or signs to make our wants/needs known but that soon develops into social exchanges, true conversations, stories, and more. For some of our AAC friends, the path to a rich lexicon can be convoluted and bumpy. Our November Strategy of the…

Semantics mathematics or Psychology

Barbara Partee s classic paper, Semantics: Mathematics or Psychology? raised a question of central importance to the practice of semantics, but at a time when formal semantics was still in its infancy and when syntacticians in the Chomskyan tradition were not yet attempting to address foundational questions in semantics. We re in a better position to address this question…

Existing user interfaces for managing, for example, mail, photos, contacts and songs allow searching using both user-generated tags and also well-defined properties such as the date-time of a photograph, or the values of headers in an email message. Users have on many web sites provided many tags, but their re-use by others has been limited due to the fact that the same tag…

What is static semantics?

From a perspective of the theory and practice of programming languages, language elements have semantics. Naming conventions don t. And semantics has nothing to do with fidelity to anything, except perhaps that if an implementation is correct it is sometimes called faithful to the semantics. Beyond that it s hard to generalize because there are so many different styles…

When I first conceived the idea of writing about my research in a way understandable to non-semanticists, I imagined I’d write an attractive new update every two months or so, sharing all my interesting recent ideas in fascinating ways and making everyone who read it wish they had my job. Then reality happened, in which very few of my interesting ideas still make sense after…

I was going to recommend using scope but according to W3C there are some inconsistency issues. The row and col values of the scope attribute are currently supported to a large extent by most current versions…
