Abstract

""Lorsqu'on lit, il faudrait remarquer et savourer les détails. Il n'y a rien à redire au clair de lune des idées générales lorsqu'il intervient après que l'on a recueilli avec amour tous les petits éclats de soleil du livre."" Ainsi s'exprime Nabokov dans la définition des ""Bons Lecteurs et Bons Ecrivains"" qui introduit le recueil de ses cours de Littérature. La naïve métaphore astrale indique sans ambages que toute lecture est reconstruction de l'univers et qu'une attention vigoureuse et sola...

Abstract

Composé de quinze études inédites, et s'articulant autour de deux grands axes, cet ouvrage interroge la notion de détail dans une perspective résolument interdisciplinaire. Tantôt le détail s'impose essentiellement comme un objet lisible : telle est la question abordée dans la première partie de l'ouvrage, circonscrite au domaine de la littérature. Tantôt le détail s'impose comme un objet visible : la deuxième partie de l'ouvrage explore, en fonction d'un schéma ouvert, mais rigoureux, les te...

Abstract

Que se passe-t-il lorsqu'on regarde une peinture de très près, l'œil presque contre la toile, voire avec une loupe ou un face-à-main comme font les amateurs sur L'Enseigne de Gersaint de Watteau, ou quand, tel Swann, on prête l'oreille à quelques notes ou à une phrase musicale ? Peut-on distinguer différents degrés de proximité du regard, de l'écoute, du sentir ? Sans résulter des regards rapprochés qu'on lui prête, une œuvre se nourrit de ces rapprochements autant qu'elle les sollicite. Et le détail est un des moyens dont elle dispose pour attirer, travailler, envelopper ceux et celles qu'elle appelle.

Abstract

Speakers use a variety of different linguistic resources in the construction of their identities, and they are able to do so because their mental representations of linguistic and social information are linked. While the exact nature of these representations remains unclear, there is growing evidence that they encode a great deal more phonetic detail than traditionally assumed and that the phonetic detail is linked with word-based information. This book investigates the ways in which a lemma’s phonetic realisation depends on a combination of its grammatical function and the speaker’s social group. This question is investigated within the context of the word like as it is produced and perceived by students at an all girls’ high school in New Zealand. The results are used to inform an exemplar-based model of speech production and perception in which the quality and frequency of linguistic and non-linguistic variants contribute to a speaker’s style.

Abstract

Inter-individual variation in speech is a topic of increasing interest both in human sciences and speech technology. It can yield important insights into biological, cognitive, communicative, and social aspects of language. Written by specialists in psycholinguistics, phonetics, speech development, speech perception and speech technology, this volume presents experimental and modeling studies that provide the reader with a deep understanding of interspeaker variability and its role in speech processing, speech development, and interspeaker interactions. It discusses how theoretical models take into account individual behavior, explains why interspeaker variability enriches speech communication, and summarizes the limitations of the use of speaker information in forensics.

Abstract

The book is dealing with recent progress in human–computer interaction (HCI) related to geographic information science (GIS). The Editorial starts with an overview about the evolution of the Internet and first HCI concepts and stimulates recent HCI developments using 3D and 4D apps, running on all mobile devices with OS Android, iOS, Linus, and Windows. Eight research articles present the state-of-the-art in HCI–GIS-related issues, starting with gender and age differences in using indoor maps via the estimation of building heights from space to an efficient visualization method for polygonal data with dynamic simplification. The review article deals with progress and challenges on entity alignment of geographic knowledge bases.

Abstract

There are many regions worldwide which are susceptible to extreme loads such as earthquakes. These can cause loss of life and adverse impacts on civil infrastructures, the environment, and communities. A series of methods and measures have been used to mitigate the effects of these extreme loads. The adopted approaches and methods must enable civil structures to be resilient and sustainable. Therefore, to reduce damage and downtime in addition to protecting life and promoting safety, new resilient structure technologies must be proposed and developed. This special issue book focuses on methods of enhancing the sustainability and resilience of civil infrastructures in the event of extreme loads (e.g., earthquakes). This book contributes proposals of and theoretical, numerical, and experimental research on new and resilient civil structures and their structural performance under extreme loading events. These works will certainly play a significant role in promoting the application of new recoverable structures. Moreover, this book also introduces some case studies discussing the implementation of low-damage structural systems in buildings as well as articles on the development of design philosophies and performance criteria for resilient buildings and new sustainable communities.
