Cognitive Sociolinguistics is a singular and burgeoning box of study which seeks to foster research into the socio-cognitive dimensions of language at a usage-based point. Advances in Cognitive Sociolinguistics brings jointly ten reports into the social and conceptual points of language-internal version. All ten contributions depend upon a company empirical foundation within the type of complicated corpus-based suggestions, experimental equipment and survey-based study, or a mixture of those. the hunt for ways that could appropriately resolve the complicated and multivariate dimensions intervening within the interaction among conceptual that means and variationist components is hence one other attribute of the quantity. by way of its descriptive scope, the quantity covers 3 major components: lexical and lexical-semantic version, constructional edition, and study on lectal attitudes and acquisition. It hence illustrates how Cognitive Sociolinguistics experiences either the adaptation of which means, and the which means of edition.

Описание: В 1966 году в Национальной библиотеке в Мадриде были обнаружены два манускрипта, написанные Леонардо. Когда-то они не были учтены при каталогизации, и об их существовании не было известно. Этим двум манускриптам дали условные названия «Мадридский кодекс I» и «Мадридский кодекс II».
«Мадридский кодекс I» состоит из 192 листов 1490—1499 годов написания, содержащих изображения различных механизмов и изложения теории механики. Хотя работа и посвящена механике, в ней есть заметки по астрономии и по оптике.
«Мадридский кодекс II» был создан Леонардо в 1503—1505 гг. и состоит из 158 листов. Он собрал исследования в области геометрии, такие, например, как «квадратуры круга». Кроме этого, в нём содержатся работы по перспективе и оптике. В книге можно найти эскизы морских и топографических карт, рассматриваются проблемы военной техники и архитектуры. Самое интересное в этом кодексе — неосуществлённый проект изменения русла реки Арно, эскизы фрески «Битва при Ангиари» и конного памятника Франческо Сфорца.

E. in order to concentrate on the essential architecture of the approach, we will not attempt to illustrate each successive step with numerous examples, nor with technical details about the calculations used. For additional detail, we refer to Speelman and Geeraerts (2009), a follow-up study that compares the methodology presented here with alternative approaches to lexical dialectometry. 1. The material basis We will investigate the instalment devoted to the human body of the Woordenboek van de Limburgse Dialecten, or WLD.

In the second place, all the factors that we included as explanatory variables appear to have a significant effect. ) This is a crucial finding, because it corroborates our initial and fundamental assumption that concept features, and more specifically, heterodox concept features, influence lexical heterogeneity. In the third place, when we turn to the first column of figures, we observe that all factors have a positive effect on lexical heterogeneity, except for the factor 'missing places'. ) This means that heterogeneity increases as a concept is less familiar, exhibits more multiword answers, overlaps more with other concepts, and has a higher negative affect, but that heterogeneity decreases as the number of places with zero observations rises.
