Can computational methods assess the #sentiment of complex texts? In an article with my fabulous colleagues from the @WZB_Berlin, @unipotsdam @LMU_Muenchen @JungeAkademie, we answer this question by applying #dictionary and #scaling methods on a sample of #literature reviews🧵
The article is also a practical #guide to help researchers select an appropriate #method and degree of preprocessing for their own data. Our #corpus consisted of 6.041 summaries of reviews of contemporary German #literature acquired from @perlentaucher00 (2/9)
The linguistic #complexity of #literature reviews differ from other texts with regard to their #language-- ambiguity, irony, metaphors, etc.-- are comparatively difficult to capture with #computational approaches. So how did our different methods fare? (3/9)

🧵⭐️ Have you ever noticed how the stars twinkle in the sky? Did you know #Indigenous people use this phenomenon for a wide variety of applications?! Image
#Twinkling - called "scintillation" in Western science - is caused when distant #starlight is impacted by our atmosphere, causing it to change in brightness as it reaches our eyes.

The rate of this flickering is related to wind speed and turbulence in the atmosphere. Image
For #astrophysicists, it negatively impacts the quality of telescopic data. #Telescopes are placed high on dry, clear mountaintops to help reduce this. Image

THREAD 🧵

Mini-Rant About The Phrase "Work-Life Balance," Which I Didn't Know I Felt So Strongly About Until Just Now. Image
The phrase "work-life balance" is a hallmark of the problem we have with authenticity — how can we be authentic leaders if the very language we use to talk about our lives is falsely compartmentalized?

Proud to announce the final paper of my dissertation is out @ASHAJournals 🎉

Here, we aimed to assess longitudinal performance in language and other cognitive domains important for academic success in young adults with acquired brain injury (ABI) participating in intensive rehab Image
22 young adults with ABI (#stroke, traumatic brain injury (#TBI), tumor, encephalitis) attended ≥ 12-week semester of the Intensive Cognitive and Communication Rehabilitation program. The program (lectures, individual therapy, tech. training), was held 6 hours/day, 4 days/week. Image
14 young adults with ABI served as deferred treatment/usual care control participants. All participants demonstrated language and/or other cognitive impairment on a standardized assessment battery (WAB, RBANS, SCCAN, DCT) administered before/after each semester.

This 12(!) car #train arrived at #budapestnyugati from #záhony at the #Ukrainian #border this afternoon, it was a special train for the #Ukrainianrefugees fleeing the #WARINUKRAINE

And I have to say that I am positively surprised by how much help is happening in Eastern Europe!
And to put it in context, the "normal" train back to Zahony had 5 cars...
This is at the #keleti station in Budapest, normally this hall is completely empty, now it full with stands and people who #HelpUkrainianRefugees

What can we learn from the #language of “living with covid”?

We wrote about the origins of “living with it”; how it became associated with Covid-19, and how – like other idiomatic phrases – it closes down discussion (“just live with it!”)

🧵 expands short piece in @bmj_latest Image
2. We searched on @LexisNexisUK for the first use, first use in association with Covid-19, and frequency of use, of twelve variations of ‘living with it’ and ‘learning to live with it’, up to the start of 2022.

It’s clear that ‘live/living’ outpaced ‘learn/learning’ versions. Image
3. Here are some examples from Lexis Nexis.

For each iteration of the phrase, we looked at the date and quote of the first (non-covid) mention; number of hits/mentions (to end December 2021); first Covid-19 mention, and an exemplar recent Covid-19 mention. ImageImageImage

Forensic Statement Analysis: #Sexualabuse in the language of the perpetrator is often seen by the use of doors, lights, water & coverings. Jonbenet Ramsay was a victim of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of her father.  Statement Analysis shows the connection to "lights"
within statements and sexual activity, and "doors" to childhood #sexualabuse  Repeated studies into these two elements shows a consistent  #linguistic connection.  When taken with the belief that it is rare to lie outright, we consider: Instead of saying, "I found
my daughter in the basement closet" or something else, John Ramsey went to 'narrative' form; that is, to lengthen out information, to explain, where no explanation is needed.  In doing so, he gave us links to sexual abuse without the need to even view

#AntiHindiAgitation in Tamilnadu on 1965, rewritten the history and it was the collective resistance against Hindi Imposition.Now India is giant in global market because of that struggle and many Tamil people have sacrificed their life
Thread 1/n
#மொழிப்போர்
to preserve our #Identity #culture and #language. We are not against Hindi but against Imposition. 1965 revolution is regarded as watershed movement in history of India and as well as Tamilnadu. After 1965, no National parties come to power in Tamilnadu state.
#மொழிப்போர்
2/n
If such revolution doesn't happened, #Hindi would be only official language since 1965. English might lose its significance. Certainly,we would communicate only in Hindi as like north Indians, all our posts, communication and records will be in Hindi.

1. #Narcissism Thread: What is the quickest way to tell if someone is a #narcissist? 🚩Raise a concern with them. Hands down this works Every. Single. Time. #Narcissists are unable to manage conflict. By conflict, I mean be cooperative & problem solve concerns or disagreements
2. I mean being held accountable or addressing a concern with the genuine interest in resolving it. Resolving issues are important to healthy relationships, #trust boundaries & safety. When issues remain unresolved between #Psychology #abused
3. Couples, family members, groups, organisations, it leads to #resentment, #anger & #contempt. This is why: Say you raise an issue with your partner that’s of a concern to you. Your partner disagrees 🚩 & it doesn’t seem like she is listening to you. 🚩You keep trying to express

خطہ پاکستان میں بولی جانےوالی زبانیں
پاکستان میں #اردو کےعلاؤہ درجنوں چھوٹی بڑی زبانیں بولی جاتی ہیں جوایک قابل فخربات ھے۔
ایک اندازےکیمطابق پاکستان میں 74زبانیں مروج ہیں۔ ایسانہیں کہ ان زبانوں کوحقیر سمجھاجاتاھےبلکہ افسوس تویہاں ھوتاھےکہ پاکستان
#Philology
#Linguistics
#Language
کی ان منفرد زبانوں کی درجہ بندی "Athena Log" نامی ویب سائٹ نے کی جس میں جرمنی اور ناروے کے ماہرین لسانیات نے کام کیا۔
اسلام آباد کا ایک غیر سرکاری ادارہ "Forum for Language Initiative" دمیلی، گورباتی، پالولا، یوشوجو اور یدغا زبانوں کی بنیادی گرامر اور الفاظ کے اردو معنوں پرکتابیں
مرتب کرچکا ھے۔
اسکایہ مطلب نہیں کہ زبانوں کو نظر انداز کر دیا گیا ھے بلکہ یہ زبانیں محدود اور مخصوص علاقوں میں بولی جانے کیوجہ سے سب کے علم میں نہیں ھوتی۔
مخصوص علاقوں میں بولی جانےوالی زبانوں کی طاقت اور وجود کا اندازہ ان میں موجود ادب، میوزک اور بولنے والوں کی تعداد سے ھوتا ھے۔

ಕೇಂದ್ರ ಸರ್ಕಾರ ಪ್ರಾದೇಶಿಕ ಭಾಷೆಗಳಿಗೆ ಅನುದಾನ ನೀಡುವಲ್ಲಿ ಮಲತಾಯಿ ಧೋರಣೆ ತೋರುತ್ತಿರುವುದು ಸ್ಪಷ್ಟವಾಗಿ ತಿಳಿಯುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದಿಂದ 25 ಜನ ಬಿಜೆಪಿ ಸಂಸದರಿದ್ದರೂ ಕೂಡ ಒಬ್ಬರೂ ಈ ಕುರಿತು ಧ್ವನಿ ಎತ್ತದೆ ಇರುವುದು ಕನ್ನಡ ಭಾಷೆಗೆ ಇವರು ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿರುವಂತಹ ಅಪಚಾರ.

1/3
ಪ್ರಾದೇಶಿಕ ಭಾಷೆಗಳ ಅಭಿವೃದ್ಧಿಗೆ ಹಣ ಮಂಜೂರು ಮಾಡುವಲ್ಲಿ ಕೇಂದ್ರ ಸರ್ಕಾರ ಯಾವ ಮಾನದಂಡ ಅನುಸರಿಸುತ್ತಿದೆ? ತಮಿಳಿಗೆ 50 ಕೋಟಿ ನೀಡಿ, ಶಾಸ್ತ್ರೀಯ ಭಾಷೆಯಾದ ಕನ್ನಡಕ್ಕೆ ಕೇವಲ 8.39 ಕೋಟಿ ನೀಡಲು ಕಾರಣವೇನು?

2/3
ಕೇಂದ್ರ ಸರ್ಕಾರ ಪದೇ ಪದೇ ಈ ರೀತಿ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರ ಆತ್ಮಾಭಿಮಾನಕ್ಕೆ ಧಕ್ಕೆ ತರುವುದನ್ನು ನಿಲ್ಲಿಸಬೇಕು. ಅದೇ ರೀತಿ ಇನ್ನಾದರೂ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರಿಂದ ಆಯ್ಕೆಯಾದ ರಾಜ್ಯದ ಬಿಜೆಪಿ ಸಂಸದರು ತಮ್ಮ ಕೇಂದ್ರದ ನಾಯಕರ ಅನ್ಯಾಯಗಳನ್ನು ಪ್ರಶ್ನಿಸುವ ಛಾತಿ ಬೆಳೆಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕು.

This report explores the impact that #security #thinktanks such as the Henry Jackson Society (#HJS) are having on British #democracy and societal cohesion
It highlights links between such groups & the British & international #FarRight which combine with patterns of divisive
far Right which combine with patterns of divisive and agenda-
driven reports based in impoverished methodologies to #shape UK #policy & #political #discourse for the worse.

Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program iwsnetwork.ca/voices-without… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳
Also me & @IsabelaHissa in front of Sao Paulo’s #MASP (Modern Art Museum) & me and my mom in #Rio! #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Image
I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

1/ Παρασκευή με #fosstotounel, και ξεκινάμε #thread με την ανάλυση της υπόθεσης της #Ολυμπίας Κυρήκου, της οποίας χάθηκαν τα ίχνη το Σάββατο, 11 Νοεμβρίου 1995, απο την Νέα Ιωνία. Θα αναλύσουμε μία σειρά από 7 βίντεο της εκπομπής από το 1996 με πρώτο το bit.ly/3qyCrCn
2/ H εκπομπή γίνεται στις 2 Φεβρουαρίου, 1996, με τους συγγενείς να απευθύνονται στην νεαρή τότε Αγγέλω, για να τους βοηθήσει στην αναζήτηση. Να θυμίσουμε ότι το #fosstotounel ξεκίνησε κάπου μέσα στο 1995, οπότε βλέπουμε τα πρώτα βήματα της εκπομπής και των συντελεστών..
3/ Αυτο φαίνεται τόσο από την παραγωγή/ σετ και την εικόνα που έχουμε από τότε, όσο και από το γεγονός ότι πολλά από τα τηλεφωνήματα που γίνονταν από `τηλεθεατές` δεν μπορούσαν να διασταυρωθούν (όπως θα δούμε) με συνέπεια να παραπλανούν, πιθανότατα με δόλο, τις προσπάθειες

1/ Παμε με θρεντάκι express μετά την σημερινή αντιπαραθεση του #μητσοτακη_παραιτησου με την #ολλανδη η #Ολλανδεζα δημοσιογράφο...που χάλασε το σενάριο με τις "non-direct" ερωτήσεις που έχει συνηθίσει να λαμβάνει ο πρωθυπουργός μας οπως εκείνος υπονόησε..
2/ disclaimer 1: Οπως πάντα, Τα παρακάτω δεν αποτελούν επιστημονική/τεκμηριωμένη γνώμη παρα μόνο προσπάθεια ανάγνωσης της γλώσσας σώματος και της λεκτικής επικοινωνίας του συνεντευξιαζόμενου.
3/ disclaimer 2: Η αναλυση παραθέτει ορισμένες παρατηρήσεις και τις αξιολογει σε μία stress and deception scale. Οι αντιδράσεις κάθε ανθρώπου,ειδικά όταν μιλάμε για καταστάσεις υψηλου στρες,μπορεί να είναι μοναδικές και να παρεκλίννουν από τις αναμενόμενες...
