Intelligibility and degree of accentedness are interrelated aspects of non-native speech. Previous research suggests that foreign accentedness is influenced by phonetic distance measures . These distance measures may also influence the intelligibility of individual words. In the present study...
A new class of discrete random fields designed for quick simulation and covariance inference under inhomogenous conditions is introduced and studied. Simulation of these correlated fields can be done in a single pass instead of relying on multi-pass convergent methods like the Gibbs Sampler or...
Roving Reference with iPads: a study of the use of iPads as technological support and service assessmentDownload
Abstract: Libraries continue to put effort into providing on-line and self-serve access to materials to reflect changing technological possibilities and expectations. Online solutions work for offsite and internet connected patrons but many patrons still physically work in library space, may not...
We address the missing analog of vague convergence in the weak-converge large-deviations analogy. Specifically, we introduce the weak Laplace principle and show it implies both the well-known weak LDP and the Laplace principle lower bound. Both the weak LDP and weak Laplace principle hold in...
The classical particle filter, introduced in 1993, approximates the normalized filter directly. It has two defiencies, over resampling and the inability to distinguish models, the former of which was overcome but the later is fundamental. Conversely, the weighted particle filter, motivated by the...
Organic capping type affected nitrogen availability and associated enzyme activities in reconstructed oil sands soils in Alberta, Canada
