  1. 1. Picture Viewing and Picture Description: Two Windows on the Mind

    Detta är en avhandling från Cognitive Science

    Författare :Jana Holsanova; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; discourse hierarchy; picture description; vision; picture viewing; information flow; discourse segmentation; discourse analysis; coherence; semantics; spatial and temporal relations; cognitive science; linguistics; cognitive linguistics; psycholinguistics; speech; cognition; multimodal communication; mental processes; eye movement protocol; focus of attention; spoken language protocol; information processing; scene perception; areas of interest;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, I connect two disciplines, linguistics and vision research, and combine two methods, spoken language protocols and eye movement protocols, in order to cast light on the underlying cognitive processes. In a series of studies, I investigate the processual aspects of picture viewing and picture description. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Motion in Language and Experience : Actual and Non-actual motion in Swedish, French and Thai

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with motion in language and non-linguistic experience, distinguishing between actual motion (AM) and non-actual motion (NAM).

  3. 3. The Physical Foundation of the Patterning of Physical Action Verbs : A Study of Chinese Verbs

    Detta är en avhandling från Linguistics and Phonetics

    Författare :Hong Gao; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Languages and literatures of South and South-East Asia; verbal semantics; trajector; semantic representation; pyscholingistics; polysemy; physical reality; physical foundation; physical action verbs; observability; motion; lexicalization patterning; landmark; intentionality; innateness; physical contact; force-dynamics; combinability; conflation; cognitive semantics; active zone; affectability; Chinese; Kinesiska och språk och litteratur från Syd- och Sydostasien; Linguistics; Lingvistik; Grammar; semantics; semiotics; syntax; Grammatik; semantik; semiotik;

    Sammanfattning : This work is a study of verbal semantics with a focus on the discussion and illustration of the role of body parts and the semantic incorporation into verbal roots of the actions that involve various body parts. Following a general discussion of the basic issues of language construction and human body actions with the image schemas of force-dynamics presented in line with the framework of cognitive semantics, it is argued that the event structures of physical action verbs are not arbitrarily constructed but rather the constructions are built through systematic cognitive processes in relation to both human physical reality and concrete reality in the world.

  4. 4. Transitivity in discourse : A comparison of Greek, Polish and Swedish

    Detta är en avhandling från Linguistics and Phonetics

    Författare :Ann Lindvall; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1998]

    Sammanfattning : This work assumes that various linguistic forms in different languages are related to common cognitive functions and semantic properties. A cognitive function - presumably universal - is information transmission. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Gesture as a Communication Strategy in Second Language Discourse : A Study of Learners of French and Swedish

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University Press

    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; second language acquisition; communication strategies; applied linguistics; gestures; Lingvistik; Linguistics; French; Swedish;

    Sammanfattning : Gesture is always mentioned in descriptions of compensatory behaviour in second language discourse, yet it has never been adequately integrated into any theory of Communication Strategies (CSs). This study suggests a method for achieving such an integration. LÄS MER
