This book collects innovative research presented at the 17th Conference of the Association of Geographic Information Laboratories for Europe (AGILE) on Geographic Information Science, held in 2014 in Castellon, Spain. The scientific papers cover a variety of fundamental research topics as well as applied research in Geospatial Information Science, including measuring spatiotemporal phenomena, crowdsourcing and VGI, geosensor networks, indoor navigation, spatiotemporal analysis, modeling and visualization, spatiotemporal decision support, digital earth and spatial information infrastructures.
The book is intended for researchers, practitioners, and students working in various fields and disciplines related to Geospatial Information Science and technology."
Ever since the end of the Cuban crisis, cultural studies have gained significant status in American and Western universities. In India, however, the cultural studies programs were somehow interlinked with interdisciplinary studies in English and vernacular literatures. Dr. Pradnyashailee Sawai decided to write a monograph on two major Jewish novels, The Victim by Saul Bellow and Shosha by Isaac Bashevis Singer. Interestingly, these two prominent Jewish writers demonstrate two very different perspectives on Jewish life in America and generally in Europe after the Holocaust. While Bellow is extremely sensitive to the nuances of everyday life in USA, Singer delves deep into the traces of a bygone era.
Collocation is an important tool in describing lexical behaviour in language and has received increasing attention in recent years. Based on two corpora: LOCNESS (the Louvain Corpus of Native English Essays) and MLC (the Non-English major Mainland Chinese Learner Corpus), this book explores the features of Chinese learner English with analysis of grammatical and lexical collocations. The findings show that Chinese university students use collocations with considerably less variety and Chinese language and culture exert a substantial influence on their English writing. It also discusses ways to tackle the problems Chinese English learners face and the pedagogical implications for teaching English and learning English collocations. As one of the first systematic studies to investigate collocations in Chinese learner English based on learner corpora, this book not only analyzes how Chinese learners use collocations in their English writing, but also provides significant implications for foreign language teaching and learning.
