(Eventual) Stability and Change Across Partnerships
Does a new partnership differ from its preceding one? This study investigates whether relationship dynamics change as people transition from one partnership to another and examines a number of predictors that might explain variation in change trajectories. We draw on data gathered from 554 focal...
Synthesis of the Campylobacter jejuni 81-176 strain capsular polysaccharide repeating unit reveals the absolute configuration of its O-methyl phosphoramidate motifDownload
The O-methyl phosphoramidate (MeOPN) motif is a non-stoichiometric modification of capsular polysaccharides (CPS) in ~70% of all Campylobacter jejuni strains. Infections by C. jejuni lead to food-borne illnesses and the CPS they produce are key virulence factors. The MeOPN phosphorus atom in...
Shifting library catalogs from physical to digital has come at a cost. Catalog records no longer leave traces of their own evolution, which is a loss for librarianship. The subjective nature of information classification warrants self-examination, within which we may see the evolution of...
A Convergent Route to Enantiomers of the Bicyclic Monosaccharide Bradyrhizose Leads to Insight into the Bioactivity of an Immunologically Silent LipopolysaccharideDownload
The synthesis of bradyrhizose, the monosaccharide component of the lipopolysaccharide O-antigen of the nitrogen-fixing bacteria Bradyrhizobium sp. BTAi1 and sp. ORS278, has been achieved in 25 steps in an overall yield of 6% using myo-inositol and ethyl propiolate as the starting materials. The...
This study illustrates how cluster analysis can be applied to vocabulary assessment to classify students into groups with similar profiles of vocabulary knowledge so that vocabulary instruction can be designed and targeted more precisely, especially in light of the multi-dimensional nature of the...
This study investigated the extent to which people can develop a global representation of local environments through across-boundary navigation. Participants learned objects’ locations in two misaligned rectangular rooms in an immersive virtual environment. After learning, they adopted a local...
The present study addresses historical and contemporary discussions on second and third language vocabulary development, specifically the effects of lexical similarity. Second language learners of Spanish aspiring to learn another romance language completed a translation recognition task with...
A reassessment of the effects of neighborhood density and phonotactic probability on L2 English word learningDownload
Two groups of participants were formed according to their level of English: high and low proficiency. No differences were found between groups. Although visual preference for three competitors was different in four time windows, supporting the existence of lexical processing in cascade, a...
Exploring intralexical meaning: Semantic neighbourhood and transparency effects on the reading of compound wordsDownload
This exploratory archival analysis investigates the relationships probabilistic co-occurrence measures of semantic association and semantic richness have with subjective measures of semantic transparency in English compound words. We also examine their correlations with behavioural measures....
The effects of cue placement on the relative dominance of boundaries and landmark arrays in goal localizationDownload
Two types of visual features are identified as reference points used by individuals to encode locations: surface-based boundaries and discrete-object-based landmarks. Previous research show that learning locations relative to a boundary can overshadow learning relative to a landmark, but not...
