Natural Language Processing

- Natural Language Processing To digest natural language implies understanding, a function that is uniquely human. To understand something implies to have senses that interpret the world such as emotions and awareness of our own physical experiences. When someone tells a story, we rely upon previous experience for interpretation. We form a reaction, our heart rate may change, we may start sweating, we may relax or tense, and feel certain emotions such as fear. Upon getting new information, a persons attitude may change or the way they think may change....   [tags: Computer Technology]

The process of creating and interpreting symbols, sometimes called signification, is far wider than language. De Saussure, (1974) has argued that the study of linguistic meaning is a part of this general study called semiotics that studies the use of sign systems.

Studying Processing Speed in Children With Specific Language Impairment

- A recent research study has concluded that the speed of processing in children with specific language impairment (SLI) is generally slower than that of children with normal language. The purpose of this study, which was performed by Miller, Kail, Leonard, and Tomblin (2001), was to test the generalized slowing hypothesis using a broad variety of carefully chosen tasks that were all administered to the same children, and to contrast the slowing of children with SLI with the slowing seen in a group of children with nonspecific language impairment (NLI); to fit the data to three different models of the relationship between the response times of children with and without language impairment; an...   [tags: slowing, deficits, speech]

The Atoms Of Language By Mark Baker

- How can it be that something so uniquely human and commonplace in our everyday existence as language, could transcend the limits of our immediate understanding. We all know how to speak and comprehend at least one language, but defining what we actually know about that language an infinitely more demanding process. How can a child without previous knowledge of the construction and concepts of language be born into the world with an innate ability to apprehend any dialect. Mark Baker, in his book The Atoms of Language, seeks to address these unsettling questions, proposing as a solution, a set of underlying linguistic ingredients, which interact to generate the wide variety of languages we se...   [tags: Linguistics, Language, Natural language]

The Memory Theories of Levels of Processing

- This research tests the memory theories of levels of processing proposed by Craik and Lockhart (1972) and encoding specificity presented by Wiseman and Tulving (1976). Craik and Lockhart (1972) assert that stimuli that are semantically related are encoded more deeply than stimuli that are related physically. Wiseman and Tulving (1976) state that encoded information must be retrieved in the same way in which it was encoded. These two theories come together in the current experiment where the subjects rate the relatedness of word pairs on either rhyming or categorization....   [tags: memory, processin, encoding]

Auditory Processing

- Language and Learning Problem—Introduction Auditory processing is the process of taking in sound through the ear and having it travel to the language portion of the brain to be interpreted. In simpler terms, “What the brain does with what the ear hears”(Katz and Wilde, 1994). Problems with auditory processing can affect a student’s ability to develop language skills and communicate effectively. “If the sounds of speech are not delivered to the language system accurately and quickly, then surely the language ability would be compromised” (Miller, 2011)....   [tags: language, learning problems, sounds]

Effects of Levels of Processing, Context, and Gender Differences in Recall Memory

- Over the years, several models have been proposed to explain the nature of memory processes (e.g., Atkinson & Shiffrin, 1968; Craik & Lockhart, 1972; Estes & Maddox, 1995; Raajimakers & Shiffrin, 1981). One of those models, level of processing, proposed that the duration that information can be held in the memory depends on the depth at which it is processed, not the stage of memory in which it is held. A study by Smith, Theodore, and Franklin (1983) examined this hypothesis by investigating how depth of processing affect the amount of processing obtained in the processing of a target item in a lexical detection task (LDT) by college students....   [tags: duration, information, processing]

The model states that when a reader or listener comes across an ambiguous sentence only one syntactical structure is primarily considered. When reaching a key point in the sentence, if the meaning attributed does not work, we must backtrack and rebuild the structure of the sentence. After reparsing the sentence we can then arrive at the right explanation of the sentence (Harley, 2008)....   [tags: Language ]
