  1. 1. Age differences in first language attrition : A maturational constraints perspective

    Författare :Emanuel Bylund Spångberg; Kenneth Hyltenstam; Niclas Abrahamsson; Silvina Montrul; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; first language attrition; age differences; maturational constraints; critical period; language acquisition; bilingualism; international adoptees; conceptual proficiency; language aptitude; Bilingualism; Tvåspråkighet; tvåspråkighetsforskning; Bilingualism;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates age-related differences in first language (L1) attrition in a second language (L2) setting. The thesis is based on four individual studies. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Set Constraints for Local Search

    Författare :Magnus Ågren; Pierre Flener; Justin Pearson; Gilles Pesant; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer science; combinatorial problems; constraint-based local search; constraint-directed search; constraint programming; incremental algorithms; monadic existential second-order logic; neighbourhoods; penalty; set variables; set constraints; variable conflicts; Computer science; Datavetenskap; Datavetenskap; Computer Science;

    Sammanfattning : Combinatorial problems are ubiquitous in our society and solving such problems efficiently is often crucial. One technique for solving combinatorial problems is constraint-based local search. Its compositional nature together with its efficiency on large problem instances have made this technique particularly attractive. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Age and Constraints on Language Learning : First Language Retention and Second Language Acquisition in International Adoptees

    Författare :Gunnar Norrman; Emanuel Bylund Spångberg; Guillaume Thierry; Janet Werker; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bilingualism; critical period; electroencephalography; event-related potentials; first language retention; international adoption; phonology; second language acquisition; Bilingualism; tvåspråkighet;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the influence of age of acquisition on the long-term second language development of international adoptees. Because age of acquisition typically coincides with the onset of bilingualism, the study of maturational age effects in second language acquisition has been empirically and conceptually entangled with changes in language input and use.

  4. 4. “Only Leave Them to Themselves” : Frances Brooke’s Fictional Worlds of Emancipatory Sensibility

    Författare :Michaela Vance; Frida Beckman; Stefano Fogelberg Rota; Ian Haywood; Bo Ekelund; Paula Backscheider; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Frances Brooke; education; inborn virtue; sensibility; Christianity; Rousseau; Locke; fictional worlds; modal constraints; opera; tragedy; novel; periodical; eighteenth century; English; engelska;

    Sammanfattning : In conversation but frequently at odds with contemporary voices on education, British eighteenth-century writer Frances Brooke (1724-1789) argued for a thoroughly revised approach to moral education that relied on the emancipatory potential of inborn sensibility. This thesis considers Brooke’s original texts, which range from periodical writing, novels, tragedies, operas, and prefaces, in the light of education, sensibility, and form, with the intention of expanding our understanding of Brooke’s contribution to eighteenth-century proto-feminist debates.

  5. 5. Analysis, synthesis and application of automaton-based constraint descriptions

    Författare :María Andreína Francisco Rodríguez; Justin Pearson; Pierre Flener; Christopher Jefferson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; constraint programming; constraint predicates; global constraints; automata; automaton-described constraint predicates; automaton-induced constraint decompositions; implied constraints; time-series constraints; transducers; automaton invariants; Computer Science; Datavetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Constraint programming (CP) is a technology in which a combinatorial problem is modelled as a conjunction of constraints on variables ranging over given initial domains, and optionally an objective function on the variables. Such a model is given to a general-purpose solver performing systematic search to find constraint-satisfying domain values for the variables, giving an optimal value to the objective function. LÄS MER
