    Article
    Open Access
    Here we study polysemy as a potential learning bias in vocabulary learning in children. We employ a massive set of transcriptions of conversations between children and adults in English, to analyze the evolution of mean ...
  • Multiview: a software package for multiview pattern recognition methods 

    Kanaan Izquierdo, Samir; Ziyatdinov, Andrey; Burgueño, Maria Araceli; Perera Lluna, Alexandre (2018-12-31)

    Multiview datasets are the norm in bioinformatics, often under the label multi-omics. Multiview data is gathered from several experiments, measurements or feature sets available for the same subjects. Recent studies in ...
  • A note on movement in logical grammar 

    Morrill, Glyn (2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this article, we make some brief remarks on overt and covert movement in logical grammar. With respect to covert movement (e.g. quantification), we observe how a treatment in terms of displacement calculus interacts ...
