Abstract

While most natural languages rely on speech, humans can spontaneously generate comparable linguistic systems that utilize manual gestures. This collection of papers examines the interaction between natural language and its phonetic vessels - human speech or manual gestures. We seek to identify what linguistic aspects are invariant across signed and spoken languages, and determine how the choice of the phonetic vessel shapes language structure, its processing and its neural implementation. We welcome rigorous empirical studies from a wide variety of perspectives, ranging from behavioral studies to brain analyses, diverse ages (from infants to adults), and multiple languages - both conventional and emerging home signs and sign languages.

Abstract

L’autel, le Temple, le Sang, l’Agneau : les perspectives eschatologiques du sacrement de l’eucharistie déploient les images phares de l’Apocalypse de Jean. Gonzalo de Berceo fait œuvre spirituelle plutôt que doctrinale dans ces deux poèmes, moins réputés que les vies de Saints ou que l’œuvre mariale de cet auteur, qui écrivait à San Millán de la Cogolla vers le milieu du XIIIe siècle. Pourtant, face aux Miracles de notre Dame, ici, la présence rédemptrice du Christ, dans le sacrement ainsi que dans l’évocation des temps derniers, ne manque pas de force. Le rituel de la messe est une prière de rédemption pour la « famille » monastique. Miracles et sacrements ont en commun de montrer dans le monde terrestre l’intervention du divin. Mais contrairement aux miracles, où Dieu manifeste sa puissance, la déléguant souvent à Marie et à ses saints, dans le sacrement de l’eucharistie, il se donne mystérieusement et pleinement dans sa divinité. Le mystère de la transsubstantiation réalise l’avènement du Christ parmi les hommes quand la messe est célébrée ; cette révélation est également portée par la vision initiatique de Jean (Αποκάλυψις Ιησού Χριστού, « la révélation de Jésus-Christ »), référence explicite, à travers Saint Jérôme, des Signes qui apparaîtront avant le Jugement dernier.

Abstract

From the mid-sixteenth to the mid-nineteenth century Russia was transformed from a moderate-sized, land-locked principality into the largest empire on earth. How did systems of information and communication shape and reflect this extraordinary change?Information and Mechanisms of Communication in Russia, 1600-1850 brings together a range of contributions to shed some light on this complex question. Communication networks such as the postal service and the gathering and circulation of news are examined alongside the growth of a bureaucratic apparatus that informed the government about its country and its people. The inscription of space is considered from the point of view of mapping and the changing public ‘graphosphere’ of signs and monuments. More than a series of institutional histories, this book is concerned with the way Russia discovered itself, envisioned itself and represented itself to its people.Innovative and scholarly, this collection breaks new ground in its approach to communication and information as a field of study in Russia. More broadly, it is an accessible contribution to pre-modern information studies, taking as its basis a country whose history often serves to challenge habitual Western models of development. It is important reading not only for specialists in Russian Studies, but also for students and non-Russianists who are interested in the history of information and communications.

Abstract

The increasing complexity of infrastructures and densely built-up areas requires a proper registration of the legal status (private and public), which can only be provided to a limited extent by the existing 2D cadastral registrations. The registration of the legal status in complex 3D situations is investigated under the header of 3D Cadastres. This publication, containing 13 selected contributions on 3D Cadastre, addresses the following areas:
