Get Polysemy: flexible patterns of meaning in mind and language PDF

Approximately fifty years in the past, Stephen Ullmann wrote that polysemy is 'the pivot of semantic analysis'. Fifty years on, polysemy has develop into one of many most well-liked subject matters in linguistics and within the cognitive sciences at huge. The publication offers with the subject froma large choice of viewpoints. The cognitive technique is supplemented and supported through diachronic, psycholinguistic, developmental, comparative, and computational views.

Example text

Fatigue behavior is related to a variety of parameters, such as stress range, mean stress, cycling frequency, surface roughness and environmental conditions. Cracks initiate at stress concentrations such as geometric notches and surface defects. Fatigue initiation curves indicate how many stress cycles it takes to initiate fatigue cracks in components. These curves are materials related and indicate the allowable number of stress cycles for applied cyclic stress amplitudes. Design curves for RPV materials are given in ASME Section III, Appendix I or respective national standards such as KTA 3204 or METI notification 501.

Stress corrosion cracking Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) is the term given to crack initiation and sub-critical crack growth of susceptible alloys under the influence of tensile stress and a “corrosive” environment. SCC is a complex phenomenon driven by the synergistic interaction of mechanical, electrochemical and metallurgical factors. BWR internals are potentially susceptible to two predominant forms of SCC. These are: (1) intergranular stress corrosion cracking (IGSCC) and (2) irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking (IASCC).
