Morphosyntax and semantic type of noun phrases in Turkish By Micah John Walter
Paperback: $4.95

Chierchia (1998) proposed that the semantic type of nouns varies across languages: in some languages, nouns denote entities; in others, nouns denote predicates; in yet others, nouns of both types are... More > attested. Chierchia posits the existence of two parameters to account for this division—namely [±arg], which determines whether a language contains nouns denoting arguments, and [±pred], which determines whether a language contains nouns denoting predicates. Chierchia then makes generalizations about each group. This paper examines the noun phrase semantics of Turkish. My analysis shows that not all [+arg, −pred] languages have nouns that act alike: while Turkish patterns in key ways with Chinese, a [+arg, −pred] language, it does not follow all of Chierchia’s predictions for [+arg, −pred] languages. In particular, it appears that some Turkish nouns, while being “mass” in the sense that they denote kinds, are countable.< Less

Cosmology By Vitvan

Vitvan’s correlations between the self-development process and modern science provide insights not available in any other work we know of. The way in which the cosmic process and the... More > self-development process are related is made clear and understandable. In Cosmology he reveals in detail how the forces of the psychic nature influence body chemistry and how students can develop conscious control of those forces. Sections on cytoplasmic tectonics and colloidal dynamics provide the scientific explanation for how the psyche and the body interact. Man’s relationship to the cosmic process is also established on scientific grounds. The cosmic process has been the study of seers since ancient times. In Vitvan's view, a new approach is necessary for the modern student who no longer thinks in mystical terms, but requires a correlation of the ancient wisdom with the language of modern physics and general semantics.< Less

Infinite objects can be classified and mapped as sets of finite transactions anchored in empirical ergonomic values such as Volts or Watts. Further development given the one-off creation of an empirical object database would form the basis of all mapping of the external world by the AI system. HX Assembler and its metaphysics could adapt one of the public domain PROLOG compilers to include mapping an inverse competitive relationship between two objects in context e.g. an inverse; square, cube or attenuated relationship. e.g. Ohms Law< Less

Sanskrit syntax is the publication of selected revised papers presented at the Seminar on Sanskrit syntax and discourse structures organized by the editor at the Université Paris Diderot,... More > 13--15 June 2013. The program of the seminar is posted on the Sanskrit Library website under Events. The theme of the seminar was the exposition of current theoretical knowledge concerning Sanskrit syntax and the application of state of the art methods of computational linguistics to Sanskrit. The book includes twelve papers by seventeen contributors from divergent backgrounds in European and American linguistics, Pāṇinian grammar, and computer science that converge in dealing with contemporary issues in Sanskrit syntax. Hock provides a general survey of research on Sanskrit syntax. Other papers deal with word order, discourse analysis, word classification, ellipsis and lexical argument structure, and Pāṇinian methodology, rule syntax, and computational implementation.< Less
A Proof Of Syntactic Incompleteness Of The Second-Order Categorical Arithmetic By giuseppe raguní
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Actually, Arithmetic is considered as syntactically incomplete. However there are different types of arithmetical theories. One of the most important is the SecondOrder Categorical Arithmetic(AR),... More > which interprets the induction principle by the socalled full semantics.Now who ever concluded that AR is sintactically (or semantically, from the categoricity)incomplete? Since this theory is not effectively axiomatizable, the incompleteness Theorems cannot be applied to it. Nor is it legitimate to assert that the undecidability for a statements is generally kept in passing from a certain theory (e.g. PA) to another that includes it (e.g. AR). Of course, although the language of AR is semantically incomplete, this does not imply that the same AR is semantically/sintactically incomplete. Pending a response to the previous question, this paper presents a proof of the syntactic/semantical incompleteness of AR, by examples based on the different modes of representation (i.e. codes) of the natural numbers in computation< Less
