Do Non-Native Grammars Allow Verbs to Raise to Agreement?

Do Non-Native Grammars Allow Verbs to Raise to Agreement?

Date: December 1995
Creator: Grace, Sabine Thepaut
Description: The purpose of this thesis is to determine whether the setting of the verb movement parameter in L2 is dependent on agreement acquisition. The Optionality hypothesis (Eubank, 1994) is tested by examining the L2 grammar of Chinese learners of English. To test this hypothesis, the sentence matching procedure originally described in Freedman and Forster (1985) is used. It is found that no current theory truly accounts for the results that are obtained.

Early Communicative Behaviors in a Two Year Old Child with a Cochlear Implant in an Auditory-Verbal Program

Early Communicative Behaviors in a Two Year Old Child with a Cochlear Implant in an Auditory-Verbal Program

Date: December 1995
Creator: Okon, Martis R. (Martis Rebecca)
Description: The communicative interchanges of a congenitally deaf child who received a cochlear implant at 24 months of age were videotaped in fifteen hourly sessions over a nine month period while she participated in auditory-verbal therapy prior to and following implantation. The present study examined selected early communicative behaviors. Using Tait's (1993) protocol for charting communicative adult-child interaction, gestures, eye-gaze, and sound uttered either by the child or an adult during communicative interchanges were transcribed from the videotapes. Results corresponded with Tait's, revealing growth in the child's communicative interaction across sessions. In less than three months following implantation phonemic measures rose dramatically. Almost all phonemic measure correlations were significant, high, and positive.

Effects of External Electric Fields on Light Transmittance in Isolated Crayfish Nerves

Effects of External Electric Fields on Light Transmittance in Isolated Crayfish Nerves

Date: December 1995
Creator: Northcutt, Brian S. W.
Description: Acute effects of a pulsed external electric field (PEEF) at 20 V/cm and a d.c. EEF at 90 V/cm on light transmittance in an isolated compound crayfish nerve was measured. In a third series, the nerve was pre-treated with the Na+ channel blocker tetrodotoxin (TTX). A PEEF produced an irreversible increase in the variation of light transmittance in normal nerves but a reversible increase in TTX treated nerves. This data was statistically insignificant. The d.c. EEFs produced a reversible and statistically significant enhancement of variation in light transmittance in both untreated and TTX-treated nerves. The findings may be due to either (1) an alteration in the ion/fluid flux within the nerve or (2) a physical alteration of protein molecules in the membranes.
