The plan of "Higher Lessons" will perhaps be better understood if we first speak of two classes of text-books with which this work is brought into competition. Method of One Class of Text-books+.--In one class are those that aim chiefly to present a course of technical grammar in the order of Orthography, Etymology, Syntax, and Prosody.
Business English has helped thousands of student over the years impore their oral and written communication skills. It has been leading book in the field for nearly three decades because it works. Its three-level approach makes grammar less intimidal-ing and easier to grasp.
The main benefits of Talk a Lot are:
• Students have to think in English during lessons in a controlled and focused way
• Students learn how to memorise correct English structures naturally, without abstract
and unrelated grammar lessons
• Students learn how to construct eight different common verb forms, using positive,
negative, and question forms, as well as embedded grammar appropriate to their

A method of shape generation using shape grammars which take shape as primi
tive and have shape specific rules is presented. A formalism for the complete,
generative specification of a class of non-representational, geometric paintings
or sculptures is defined, which has shape grammars as its primary structural com
ponent. Paintings are material representations of two-dimensional shapes gener
ated by shape grammars, sculptures of three-dimensional shapes. Implications
for aesthetics and design theory in the visual arts are discussed.
In this paper, we describe the research using machine learning techniques to build a comma checker to be integrated in a grammar checker for Basque. After several experiments, and trained with a little corpus of 100,000 words, the sys tem guesses correctly not placing com mas with a precision of 96% and a re call of 98%. It also gets a precision of 70% and a recall of 49% in the task of placing commas. Finally, we have shown that these results can be im proved using a bigger and a more ho mogeneous corpus to train, that is,...
