Informing Curriculum Design Using Genre Analysis: A Study Of Three Genres In Japanese, Elizabeth A. Thomson Jan 2005

Informing Curriculum Design Using Genre Analysis: A Study Of Three Genres In Japanese, Elizabeth A. Thomson

Faculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)

The notion that texts in Japanese can be described in terms of text type or genre is not a new or novel approach. However, such descriptions are not common. This paper presents a description of three genres in Japanese: the factual news commentary, the hard news story and the soft news story. The descriptions have been informed by systemic functional linguistics, in particular by work 011 the system of THEME (Halliday 1994, Martin 1993, Mathiessen 1995), thematic patterns of progression (Danes 1974, Fries 1983, Ghadessy /995) and generic structure potential (GSP) (Hasan 1996). The GSP representation o/the genres enables ...


Ux Ret And Cn Hyi: Hipparcos Photometry Analysis, Surinder S. Wadhwa, William J. Zealey Jan 2005

Ux Ret And Cn Hyi: Hipparcos Photometry Analysis, Surinder S. Wadhwa, William J. Zealey

We present an analysis of the Hipparcos photometry of the contact binary systems UX Ret and CN Hyi. The Wilson-Devinney code is employed to model the V band light curve for several fixed values of the mass ratio. From the quality-of-fit of the different solutions a final solution is derived for each system. Absolute values of the system are derived using the parallax data from the Hipparcos catalog. Analysis of the V band photometry of two stars (EL Aqr and FN Cam) with spectroscopically known mass ratios is also provided as a validation for the methods adopted for this study.


Applying Formal Concept Analysis To Semantic File Systems Leveraging Wordnet, Benjamin Martin, Peter W. Eklund Jan 2005

Applying Formal Concept Analysis To Semantic File Systems Leveraging Wordnet, Benjamin Martin, Peter W. Eklund

Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences - Papers (Archive)

Formal Concept Analysis can be used to obtain both a natural clustering of documents along with a partial ordering over those clusters. The application of Formal Concept Analysis requires input to be in the form of a binary relation between two sets. This paper investigates how a semantic filesystem can be used to generate such binary relations. The manner in which the binary relation is generated impacts how useful the result of Formal Concept Analysis will be for navigating one’s filesystem.
