Weighted Littlewood-Paley Theory and Exponential-Square Integrability

Littlewood-Paley thought is an important device of Fourier research, with functions and connections to PDEs, sign processing, and likelihood. It extends the various merits of orthogonality to events the place orthogonality doesn’t fairly make experience. It does so through letting us keep watch over sure oscillatory endless sequence of services by way of endless sequence of non-negative capabilities.

Semantics: A Reader

This can be a kind of collections of classics that simply will get misplaced one of the multitude of books at the subject, however it continues to be the most effective i have come upon. lots of the classics are right here, Davidson's 'Truth and Meaning', Lewis' 'General Semantics', Kamp's unique presentation of DRT, Groenendijk & Stokhof's 'Dynamic Predicate Logic', Barwise & Perry's 'Situations and Attitudes', Barwise & Cooper's 'Generalized Quantifiers and usual Language' and the not easy to return by way of (except within the ridiculously dear 'Themes from Kaplan') 'Demonstratives' through Kaplan, to say a number of.

Historical Semantics and Cognition

Includes revised papers from a September 1996 symposium which supplied a discussion board for synchronically and diachronically orientated students to interchange rules and for American and ecu cognitive linguists to confront representatives of alternative instructions in ecu structural semantics. Papers are in sections on theories and versions, descriptive different types, and case reports, and view components similar to cognitive and structural semantics, diachronic prototype semantics, synecdoche as a cognitive and communicative procedure, and intensifiers as objectives and resources of semantic swap.

Language Change at the Syntax-Semantics Interface

Sample text

As Carter (2007a) explains, the new developments within stylistics present not only new challenges but also new exciting opportunities for the teaching of stylistics: The intellectual excitement of cognitive poetics (with its re-tuning of the significance of language processing), the awesome power of corpus linguistics, the depth and richness of studies in narrative analysis, the ever Key Branches in Stylistics 39 new angles on the literariness of language – all now take place routinely alongside developing opportunities for web-based teaching and learning, the pedagogic possibilities afforded by hypertexts, more refined rhetorical-analytical tools, enhanced paradigms for greater empirical investigation, more and more successful integration of quantitative and qualitative methodologies.

Source disciplines include cognitive linguistics; pragmatics; discourse analysis; narratology; communication theory; anthropology; stylistics; cognitive, evolutionary, and social psychology; rhetoric; computer science; literary theory; and philosophy. (Herman, 2006a, p. 452) This acceptance of influences from such a wide spectrum of disciplines is positively conducive to cross-fertilization and general enriching of both Key Branches in Stylistics 37 narratology and stylistics as the latest work on narrative carried out by stylisticians, as much as the publications by narratologists on stylistic issues, proves (Gibbons, 2010; Herman, 2005b, 2006b; McHale, 2007; Page, 2007b).

An investigation of the relationship between language form and meaning within a new historical stylistics framework (Busse, 2010a) uses and enhances methods and terminology from historical pragmatics and historical sociolinguistics in order to discover both change and stability. Both a pragma-philological and a diachronic approach (Jacobs and Jucker, 1995), including a form-to-function and a function-to-form mapping, are seen in new historical stylistics as interdependent and too complex to be set apart from one another.
