    Crime and Attractiveness on Sentence Length Some people are simply blessed with good genes and are born attractive. There are times when this tends to be beneficial, and when it comes to prison sentencing after a crime, that fact may remain true. In this experiment we look at exactly this kind of situation. This becomes important for judges and other high up officials to understand that their thoughts might be swayed by attractiveness when making sentencing decisions. Sigall and Ostrove’s (1975) experiment relates most closely to ours. They wanted to know if a crime unrelated to attractiveness, such as burglary, would benefit attractive defendants and if a crime related to attractiveness, such as swindle, would result in a harsher…

    Twelve. That's what they gave him. Twelve life sentences, all to be served consecutively. They'd tried for the death penalty. But you can't put someone to death when they're criminally insane, can you? They said that he didn't know what he was doing. That he didn't even know the difference between right and wrong. So instead they just locked him up and hoped that the world would forget about him. They hoped that he'd rot in his cage till there was nothing left but a shell of the Clown Prince of…

    theory which supports the idea that all human languages, although different in the surface, share some fundamental principles. These principles are generally true across languages, while parameters, on the other hand, are settings that allow for variation from language to language (White, 2003, p.2). The Extended Projection Principle (EPP) is a principle common to all languages which states that a sentence must always have a subject. According to the EPP and as explained by Carnie (2013), all…

Any kind of deterrence has 3 main properties; severity, certainty and celerity (Sacco and Kennedy, 2010). Severity refers to the seriousness of the penalty, certainty is the reference to the likelihood of being punished for act and celerity is the swiftness in which the offender is apprehended and punished (Clark, 1988) (Sacco and Kennedy, 2010).…

    The reason why the word “ate” moves to the beginning of the sentence in Arabic is that there is an empty complementizer position that accepts it. In contrast, the word ate does not move in the subordinate clause (in the right picture) because the complementizer position is filled by the auxillary “that.” To test the validity of this explanation, I presented the native speaker with additional sentences containing both occupied and unoccupied complementizer positions. His translations of these…
