In corpus linguistics, the recurrence of patterns of small fragments like phrases and words in sentences is analyzed using strategies that do not necessarily focus on the contextual meaning of the analyzed texts. In this case, the corpus consisted of written text data from thirteen files. The corpus was named Kurdish non native speakers corpus.
Analysis for the use of Conjunctions
The following three corpuses were used in the analysis of conjunction usage among Kurdish non native speakers.
• BNC- British National Corpus
This corpus consists of a hundred million words from both written text and spoken words sources. The corpus is monolingual since it focuses on British English excerpts from the latter dates of the twentieth century.…

“L2 vs. L1 Use of Synonymy: An Empirical Study of Synonym Use/Acquisition”
Dilin Liu1, and Shouman Zhong2
The article,” L2 vs. L1 Use of Synonymy: An Empirical Study of Synonym Use/Acquisition” by Dilin Liu and Shouman Zhong seeks to examine the use of four sets of synonyms by Chinese second language learners and native speakers of English…
definitely celebrate a lot!
The competition that I cherished the best,
Occurred on October 15th, 2016 in Corpus Christi, but I endured test!
The fact that we were going to spend three hours on a bus ride was considered wasted time,
So I had to settle upon whether to go or to stay to finish work, which seemed like a crime!
I wasn’t going to give up my chance since I made girls’ team 1,
But I also needed to complete my homework or else I wouldn’t be allowed to have fun.
So I determined up with…
By analysing the language used in ‘The Last Judgement’ I will endeavour to explore the pageant’s intended effect on the audience, looking specifically at the significance of place and the pageant’s structure.
The York Corpus Christi play is structured so that within one day the audience are told the story of Christianity from the creation of the world to judgement day, which, if viewed from an Aristotelian perspective, could be seen as having a tragic plot structure (a fall from good to bad).…
Not Suspend The Writ of Habeas Corpus
According to the constitution of the United States, Article 1, Section 9, clause 2 states “The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended unless when in cases of rebellion or the invasion the public safety may require it.” Our understanding to this statement is that habeas corpus should be in-effect all the time not unless it is needed to be disclose due to a war or for the safety of all human beings. The writ of habeas corpus has the…
2 a. They generally suffer from severe epilepsy and to reduce the severity of the seizures, as a last resort, a surgical operation is performed to sever the corpus callosum either partially or completely. Because of this, the patient essentially has two different brains such that the two hemispheres are isolated preventing intercommunication as well as the spread of the seizure to another hemisphere. 2 b. Hence we can observe that language is predominantly lateralized to the left hemisphere.…
The following questions have to do with the study of patients who have undergone a surgery (for medical reasons, severe epilepsy being one) that severed the corpus callosum. This leaves the two halves of the brain to work independently from one another. The main questions this study seeks to answer are: how do the two halves of the brain interact with each other and how is this relationship altered after the subjects have undergone this surgery?
Basically, subjects were asked…
California. California is currently home to the largest death row in the nation housing 743 inmates as of January 1, 2015 (Death Penalty Information).
Sentencing an inmate with the death penalty is more expensive than its alternative of life without parole. Judge Arthur Alarcon assessed that more than $4 billion have been spent on implementing the death penalty from 1978 to 2013 (DPIC). Here is a following breakdown of the costs: $1.94 billion spent on pre-trial and trial costs, $925 million…
states the writ of Habeas Corpus, which requires a person under arrest to be brought before a judge or into court, to secure the person's release unless lawful grounds are shown for their detention (1). The lower courts deemed no constitutional rights extended to the Guantanamo detainees because technically Guantanamo Bay is not an American territory, but rather, it is a Cuban territory with an agreed upon American jurisdiction, and therefore, the Constitution did not apply. Needless to say…
The paper focuses on different experiments to identify RQs in social media scenarios like debate forums and twitter corpus and further identifying sarcastic and other RQs. Traditional models like Google Word2Vec and novel models like SVM and LSTM are used to study the contextual and linguistic dependencies and improve the classification results. The authors stress on the qualitative analysis of the results and try to explore the contextual dependency by adding various features to the training…
