  • Istanbul

    Karton Kapak
    Génie du lieu ou connivence mystérieuse avec les morts, certaines villes n'ont cessé d'entretenir avec les voyageurs des liens littéraires d'exception. Istanbul, port du Bosphore, porte de l'Orient, ville-légende, cœur des histoires byzantine, ottomane et turque, est assurément l'une de ces cités majeures qui, depuis plus de cent cinquante ans, exerce une fascination jamais démentie sur les esthètes venus du reste du monde, les romantiques comme les voyageurs de l'"Orient-Express", mais aussi sur les romanciers turcs eux-mêmes, qui en quelque sorte, se sont réapproprié leur patrimoine de pierre et de rêve.

    Presenting the seminal works of Professor Halliday, this title includes works covering developments in machine translation and corpus linguistics. It also includes a discussion of collaborative efforts bringing together those working in systemic functional grammar, fuzzy logic and 'intelligent computing'., "This is a deeply impressive book by a prominent linguist. As always, Professor Halliday's contributions are pervasively readable and stimulating." Jan Svartvik, Emeritus Professor, Lund University, Sweden. Throughout his careerProfessor Hallidayhas continued to address the issue of the application of linguistic scholarship to Computational and Quantitative Studies. The sixth volume in the collected works of Professor M. A. K. Halliday includes works that span the last five decades, coveringdevelopments in machine translation and corpus linguistics. The principles and methods outlined in these papers remain as relevant today as when they were first published, continuing to point the way forward in an endeavour where success depends more on advancing our knowledge of language than machines.", Part One: Machine translation: the early years; Editor's Introduction; 1 The linguistic basis of a mechanical thesaurus, and its application to English preposition classification; 2 Linguistics and machine translation; Part Two: Probabilistic grammar and the corpus; Editor's Introduction; 3 Towards probabilistic interpretations; 4 Corpus studies and probabilistic grammar; 5 Language as system and language as instance: the corpus as a theoretical construct; 6 [with Z L James] A quantitative study of polarity and primary tense in the English Finite clause; 7 Quantitative studies and probabilities in grammar; 8 The spoken language corpus.

  • Simple Sentences, Substitution, and Intuitions

    Karton Kapak
    The phenomenon of substitution failure is a longstanding focus of discussion for philosophers of language. Jennifer Saul presents the first full-length treatment of this puzzling feature of language, and explores its implications for the theory of reference and names, and for the methodology of semantics., The phenomenon of substitution failure is a longstanding focus of discussion for philosophers of language. Substitution failure occurs when a change from one co-referential name to another (e.g. from 'Superman' to 'Clark Kent') affects the truth-value of a sentence. Jennifer Saul has shown that this can occur even in the simplest of sentences. She presents the first full-length treatment of this puzzling feature of language, and explores its implications for the theory of reference and names, and for the methodology of semantics., Introduction ; 1. Substitution and Simple Sentences ; 2. Simple Sentences and Semantics ; 3. Simple Sentences and Implicatures ; 4. The Enlightenment Problem, and a Common Assumption ; 5. Abandoning (EOI) ; 6. Beyond Matching Propositions ; Appendix A: Extending the Account ; Appendix B: Belief Reporting, A sharp and skillful study... Saul's book constitutes a fresh and incisive contribution to the philosophy of language. It is certainly a msut read for anyone interested in the classic substitution puzzles and also anyone interested in questions about the methodology of semantics and philosophy of language. N. Angel Pinillos Mind 119, Jennifer Saul is a professor of philosophy at the University of Sheffield. She is Co-Editor for Feminism entries for the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, and on the Editorial Board for Symposia in Gender, Race, and Philosophy.

  • Style and Time (Essays on the Politics of Appearance)

    Karton Kapak
    Offers a sustained meditation on the role of interruption in modernity. This book departs from and elaborates an important but overlooked dimension of Walter Benjamin's discourse: the question of style as it bears upon temporality and spatiality. This work suggests that the time has come to revise existing paradigms., Interruption is often read as the foundational gesture of modernity - the means through which modernity asserts its existence by claiming its discontinuity with the past. Exposing the limitations of such an understanding, this book offers a very different approach: here, modernity is the site that poses the question of how we are to continue when every attempt to think and understand the present is marked by the necessity of an interruption. Through a reading of Walter Benjamin's writings - particularly on interruption, fashion, and Jugendstil (or Art Nouveau) - Andrew Benjamin in this work offers a sustained meditation on the role of interruption in modernity. His book departs from and elaborates an important but overlooked dimension of Benjamin's discourse: the question of style as it bears upon temporality and spatiality. Extending this meditation in exciting and unexpected ways - toward problems of cosmopolitanism, immigration, and the graphically pornographic, for instance - the author is able to translate Benjamin's multifaceted formulations on style, the dialectical image, awakening, temporality, and spatiality into lucid and highly intelligent stylistics underscoring the philosophical notions of Schein and Erscheining, the interruptions of modernity, and the politics of sameness and otherness. Nothing less than a rethinking of the conditions of Western art as it relates to politics, architecture, and time, this study of Walter Benjamin's modernity in temporal and spatial terms is a provocative and original work of philosophy in its own right - a work that suggests that the time has come to revise existing paradigms., Introduction: Style, Time, and Appearance; Part 1. Working through Walter Benjamin; 1. Benjamin's Modernity; 2. Being Roman Now: The Time of Fashion. A Commentary on Walter Benjamin's "Theses on the Philosophy of History" XIV; 3. Benjamin's Style: The Style that is not Jugendstil; Part 2. Unforeseen Appearances; 4. The "Place" of Cosmopolitan Architecture; 5. "In What Style Should We Build?" The Style of Cosmopolitan Architecture; 6. Refugees, Cosmopolitanism, and the Place of Citizenship; 7. The Matter of a Materialist Philosophy of Art: Bataille's Manet., Andrew Benjamin is professor of critical theory in design and architecture at the University of Technology Sydney. He has also taught philosophy and architectural theory in both the United States and Europe, where he teaches regularly at the Architectural Association in London. His recent publications include Architectural Philosophy (Continuum, 2001), Philosophy's Literature (Clinamen, 2001), and Disclosing Spaces: On Painting (Clinamen, 2004). He is joint general editor of the Walter Benjamin Studies series published by Continuum.

  • Embodied Communication in Humans and Machines

    Embodied Communication in Humans and Machines

    Sert Kapak
    Communication is not just about the transfer of verbal information. Gestures, facial expressions, intonation and body language are all major sources of information during conversation. This book presents a new perspective on communication, one that will help us to better understand humans, and also to build machines that can communicate., When people communicate face to face they don't just exchange verbal information. Rather, communication encompasses the whole body. Communication partners synchronize their body sway, and mimic or imitate each other's body postures and actions. They produce a multitude of manual and facial gestures that help to illustrate what is being said, show how communication partners feel, or or reveal verbal deception. Moreover, face-to-face communication takes place in shared contexts where partners jointly attend and refer to the same objects, often while working on joint tasks such as carrying a table or repairing a car together. Traditionally, communication research has neglected these parts of communication using the engineering model of signal transmission as the main theoretical metaphor. This book takes a new look at recent empirical findings in the cognitive and neurosciences, showing that the traditional approach is insufficient, and presenting a new interdisciplinary perspective, the Embodied Communication perspective. The core claim of the Embodied Communication perspective is that human communication involves parallel and highly interactive couplings between communication partners. These couplings range from low-level systems for performing and understanding instrumental actions, like the mirror system, to higher-systems that interpret symbols in a cultural context. The book can also serve as a guide for engineers who construct artificial agents and robots that should be able to interact with humans., 1. Introduction to embodied communication ; 2.
