By analyzing conceptual transfer this volume offers new insight in areal linguistics. Mainland Southeast Asia unifies great linguistic richness consisting of numerous languages and countless varieties of genetically diverse language families. Nevertheless, the area is known as a prime example for linguistic convergence. Exemplified by spatial reference in Thai, Khmer, Lao and Vietnamese, this study reveals conceptual borrowing due to language contact as an areal defining feature. The results from the field-based data analysis may help answer what extent cultural impact can be used as evidence for the existence of linguistic areas. A speaker’s cultural background might have a stronger impact on the choice of spatial language encoding than expected. Method and structure of argumentation can provide a model for similar questions addressing the existence of linguistic areas as well as to other cognitive dimensions within the Southeast Asian area under consideration. Therefore, the study can be seen as a significant contribution to analyze possibly existing conceptual areas empirically and exemplarily. Additionally, the investigation can serve as an important complement to empirical assumptions of conceptual transfer.

Combining theory, psychological tests, and corpus, this book is an interdisciplinary study of the conceptual transfer of abstract nouns in the bilingual mental lexicon of professional translators, a treatise in philosophical linguistics, and a challenger of traditional ideas in the psychology of concepts. Not only does it shatter the common belief among cognitive scientists that abstract concepts are not researchable and cannot be subject to empirical investigation, it goes far beyond this to prove that abstract conceptssuch as science, language, religion, etc.are even more amenable to empirical research than concrete ones. It establishes a new paradigm in the relationship between language and cognition that allows each to be accessed through the other. Arguing that lexical-semantic analysis of concepts should precede psychological tasks, and supplying the tools therefore, it provides a new cognitive approach to lexical semantics and a new semantic approach to cognitive psychology. While it addresses itself to all these topics drastically and untraditionally, the major topic of this book still is the conceptual transfer in the bilingual mental lexicon of English-Arabic translators.

If the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates came to life again today, he would wonder how airplanes fly and light bulbs glow, but not wonder much about the world’s political and social changes that took place since his time. The author puts himself in the position of explaining to Socrates the technological fundamentals behind all our modern conveniences . Since he takes Socrates seriously, the author accepts the challenge of introducing the relevant mathematical and technical concepts, and he does so in a remarkably easy-tounderstand and accurate way. The result is a comprehensive overview of the elements of our technical civilization, an overview properly based upon elementary but solid mathematical and scientific principles. Everyone with an inclination toward science and technology can take advantage of the clear structure, the comprehensive presentation and the many wonderfully-illustrated examples of the book.

An Introduction to Economics, 3rd Edition provides a careful and clear explanation of universal economic principles that are illustrated primarily by examples drawn from agriculture, rural areas and the food industry.Since the first and second editions, agriculture has increasingly been viewed in a global context. International trade agreements have influenced domestic agriculture everywhere and many countries have seen growth in processing and the role of large-scale retailers. There is also evidence that the main rural land-users (farming and forestry) form only a part of the total economic activity going on in the countryside of developed countries. This third edition has been updated using examples that cover this wider range of circumstances. Other updates include the section on policy, which has been expanded to reflect that agriculture plays an increasing role in policies directed at the countryside in general, especially those aimed at conserving the environment. A new section has also been added to reflect the important advances in production technology. The text is further enhanced by the inclusion of more exercises, a revised list of essay questions and updated suggested further reading.

The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is a prominent and powerful tool for making decisions in situations involving multiple objectives. Models, Methods, Concepts and Applications of the Analytic Hierarchy Process, 2nd Edition applies the AHP in order to solve problems focused on the following three themes: economics, the social sciences, and the linking of measurement with human values. For economists, the AHP offers a substantially different approach to dealing with economic problems through ratio scales. Psychologists and political scientists can use the methodology to quantify and derive measurements for intangibles. Meanwhile researchers in the physical and engineering sciences can apply the AHP methods to help resolve the conflicts between hard measurement data and human values. Throughout the book, each of these topics is explored utilizing real life models and examples, relevant to problems in today’s society. This new edition has been updated and includes five new chapters that includes discussions of the following: - The eigenvector and why it is necessary - A summary of ongoing research in the Middle East that brings together Israeli and Palestinian scholars to develop concessions from both parties - A look at the Medicare Crisis and how AHP can be used to understand the problems and help develop ideas to solve them.
