How can the book be used?
The vocabulary is arranged by topic. Choose the topics that interest you. The pages do not have
to be completed in any particular order, and there is no need to complete all the pages if some
are on topics which are not useful to you. It is better to complete one or two pages in a day, and
remember the vocabulary, rather than completing as many pages as possible. The answers to the
exercises can be found at the back of the book. There is also an index to help you find the pages
which are most useful to you....

Patent translation is a complex problem due to the highly specialized technical vocabulary and the peculiar textual structure of patent documents. In this paper we analyze patents along the orthogonal dimensions of topic and textual structure. We view different patent classes and different patent text sections such as title, abstract, and claims, as separate translation tasks, and investigate the inﬂuence of such tasks on machine translation performance.
We have developed an automated Japanese essay scoring system called Jess. The system needs expert writings rather than expert raters to build the evaluation model. By detecting statistical outliers of predetermined aimed essay features compared with many professional writings for each prompt, our system can evaluate essays.

Whatever may be thought to the contrary, on account of the remoteness of the subject from ordinary topics, no sooner does one take up the study of Ainu in real earnest than he finds that the collection of words and arranging them in the form of vocabulary has by no means been neglected. For, to say nothing of those tabulated by Japanese (the Moshiogusa to wit), since the year 1730, when Philipp Johann von Strachlenberg of Stockholm published his Der Word- und Destliche Theil von Europa und Asia, quite a number of lists of words have appeared. Yet amid all...
Task 1 assesses your ability to analyse data objectively without giving an opinion, whereas Task 2 usually requires a subjective piece of writing on a fairly general topic. In addition, it is worth noting that the exam is not testing knowledge of English language, but rather competence in using English, In other words, it is not testing memory. Awareness of this might help reduce some of the problems that many candidates have in the IELTS exam.
When sitting in statistics classes or when trying to read and understand
statistical material, too many otherwise intelligent and capable students and
researchers feel dumb. This book is intended as an antidote. It is designed to
make you feel smart and competent. Its approach is conservative in that it
attempts to identify and present the essentials of data analysis as developed by
statisticians over the last two or three centuries.
Every answer includes a reference to a corresponding lesson. If you answer a question incorrectly, turn to the chapter that covers that particular topic, and you will be able to understand the question better.
The questions in this pretest do not cover all the topics discussed in each chapter, so even if you can answer every sin¬gle question in this pretest correctly, there are still many practical writing strategies and style issues to learn. On the other hand, if there are many questions on the pretest that puzzle you, or if you find that you do not get a good percentage of answers correct, don't worry.
This is also usually the case with univer¬sity libraries, especially if you explain that you are researching a topic and would like to use their Internet search engines for academic rea¬sons. Later in the book, there will be a chapter on how to use the Internet and which sites provide what kind of information.
Again, many pub¬lic libraries and institutions will allow you to use the Internet and computers at no extra cost. This is also usually the case with univer¬sity libraries, especially if you explain that you are researching a topic and would like to use their Internet search engines for academic rea¬sons.
If your score is lower than you would like it to be, you may want to devote a little more than twenty minutes to practice each day in order to acquire some necessary research skills.

Once you have fin¬ished, you can check your answers with the answer key at the end of this the test. Every
answer includes a reference to a corresponding lesson. If you answer a question incorrectly, turn to the chapter that covers that particular topic, and you will be able to understand the question better.
