Generally speaking, the better your credit, the lower the cost of obtaining that
credit, usually in the form of interest rates and fees. That means, you’ll have more
available for savings and spending. Lenders will have more conﬁdence in your
ability and commitment to repay the loan on time and in full.
Conversely, if your credit history is not strong, you’ll probably pay higher interest
rates and fees and have less money available for savings and spending. You could
end up being short on money and playing “catch-up,” juggling between payments
on several bills.
This book examines how professionals practising in various health and welfare
settings go about the ordinary, but complicated, business of making sense
of the symptoms and troubles with which their patients or clients present.
Our motivations for writing the book are varied, but are the result of our
conversations with each other about the problem of judgement in clinical
practice, which have taken place over many years of professional, academic
and research collaboration.
This paper categorically rejects the possibility of considering a wordto-word conversion as a translation. A true translation is unattainable, even by the human agent, let alone by mechanical means. However, a crude practical translation is probably achievable. The present paper deals with a scheme for the syntactic integration of Russian sentences.
Environment-friendly treatment of sewage sludge has become tremendously important. Conversion ofsewage sludge into energy products by environment-friendly conversion process, with its energy recovery and environmental benefits, is being paid significant attention.
In this work, we provide an empirical analysis of differences in word use between genders in telephone conversations, which complements the considerable body of work in sociolinguistics concerned with gender linguistic differences. Experiments are performed on a large speech corpus of roughly 12000 conversations. We employ machine learning techniques to automatically categorize the gender of each speaker given only the transcript of his/her speech, achieving 92% accuracy. An analysis of the most characteristic words for each gender is also presented.
Recent studies on the analysis of intonational function examine a r a n ~ of materials from cue phrases in monologue (Litman and Hirschberg, 1990) and dialogue (Hirschberg and Litman, 1987; Hockey, 1991) to longer utterances in both monologue and dialogue (McLemore, 1991). Results match specific intonational tunes to certain discourse functions which are more or less well defined. Although these results make a convincing case that intonation does signal a change in discourse structure, the specification of discourse function remains vague. ...
We study a number of natural language decipherment problems using unsupervised learning. These include letter substitution ciphers, character code conversion, phonetic decipherment, and word-based ciphers with relevance to machine translation. Straightforward unsupervised learning techniques most often fail on the ﬁrst try, so we describe techniques for understanding errors and signiﬁcantly increasing performance.
A computerized conference (CC) is a form of co~znunication in which participants type into and read frc~ a computer terminal. The participants may be on line at the same time--termed a "synchrononous" conference, or may interact anynchronous~. The conversation is stored and mediated by the computer.
Conversationally relevant descriptions are definite descriptions that are not merely tools for the identificationof a referent, but are also crucial to the discourse in other respects. I analyze the uses of such descriptions in assertions as conveying a particular ~ype of conversational implicatures. Such implicstures can be represented within the framework of possible world semantics. The analysis is extended to non-assertive illocutionary acts on the one hand, and to indefinite descriptions on the other. ...

In Vietnam, after the conversion from the command economy to market economy, the local enterprises faced many difficulties in strategic management. Businesses need to research, develop a strategic tool to have enough flexibility to respond to market changes. A business strategy must be formulated on the basis of analysis and forecast opportunities, threats, strengths and weaknesses of the enterprise, helping businesses obtain general information about the external and internal business environment.
Viettel Group is one successful model of change to the market economy.
Reference for teachers, students explore research and review documents to study Japanese. Documents provide you useful knowledge to help you consolidate knowledge and practice communication skills and to learn Japanese better.Japanese, or Japanese (Japanese: 日本语 Nihongo (help · info), Japanese Language) is a language spoken by over 130 million users in Japan and the Japanese community of migrantsaround the world.
Discourse analysis considers how language, both spoken and written, enacts
social and cultural perspectives and identities. Assuming no prior knowledge
of linguistics, An Introduction to Discourse Analysis examines the field and
presents James Paul Gee’s unique integrated approach, which incorporates
both a theory of language-in-use and a method of research.
Electromechanical energy conversion is achievable in a number of ways. These possibilities rely on different fundamental laws of electrical engineering. As the only method that has importance on the large scale is electromechanical conversion achieved by means of electromagnetic converters, this section is fully devoted to the analysis of basic principles involved in electromagnetic electromechanical conversion.
In the 21st century, life for humans being has become busy to the extent that they strive for a
comfortable and easy life. Service robots can provide this comfort to humans by doing all
their difficult and dirty work. In order to provide this service, robots should be able to work
in the same environment as humans. Service robots should have intelligent abilities such as
greeting, conversation with humans, moving while avoiding obstacles, grabbing objects, etc
(Sakai K. et al., 2005). However, service robots can just walk or run slowly (Riezenman, M.J.
In the beginning of the course in April, I carried out my listening instruction by
teaching vocabulary and grammar with repeated CD listening, focusing on listening to key-
words. Then, after an actual TOEFL ITP test was conducted inside the school in June, my
students’ negative reaction against the test led me to attempt new strategies applying
conversational analysis to the study of TOEFL listening. A post-examination survey filled out
after the actual TOEFL showed that students were overwhelmed by the difficulty and time
length of the test.
An increasing number of telephone services are offered in a fully automatic
way with the help of speech technology. The underlying systems, called spoken
dialogue systems (SDSs), possess speech recognition, speech understanding,
dialogue management, and speech generation capabilities, and enable a
more-or-less natural spoken interaction with the human user. Nevertheless, the
principles underlying this type of interaction are different from the ones which
govern telephone conversations between humans, because of the limitations of
the machine interaction partner.
