Artificial Grammar Reveals Inborn Language Sense, JHU Study Shows « News from The Johns Hopkins University May 12, 2011 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MEDIA CONTACT: Lisa De Nike Parents know the unparalleled joy and wonder of hearing a beloved child’s first words turn quickly into whole sentences and then babbling paragraphs. But how human children acquire language-which is so complex and has so many variations-remains largely a mystery. Fifty years ago, linguist and philosopher Noam Chomsky proposed an answer: Humans are able to learn language so quickly because some knowledge of grammar is hardwired into our brains. In other words, we know some of the most fundamental things about human language unconsciously at birth, without ever being taught. Now, in a groundbreaking study, cognitive scientists at The Johns Hopkins University have confirmed a striking prediction of the controversial hypothesis that human beings are born with knowledge of certain syntactical rules that make learning human languages easier.

6 Words That Make Your Resume Suck This article is part of a series called How to Write a Resume. To start this series from the beginning, read the introduction. I’ve used a few bad words in my life. S$it, you probably have too. But when the wrong words appear on your resume, it sucks. These sucky words are not of the four-letter variety. So how do you write a wicked resume without the suck? 1. My lips pucker and make sour sucking noises when I read “Responsible For” on a resume. Employers want the numerical facts. BADResponsible for writing user guides on deadline. GOODWrote six user guides for 15,000 users two weeks before deadline. BADResponsible for production costs. GOODReduced production costs by 15 percent over three months. The resume that avoids vague “responsibilities” and sticks to facts detailing figures, growth, reduced costs, number of people managed, budget size, sales, and revenue earned gets the job interview. 2. BADExperience programming in PHP. 3. Yes, I realize this isn’t a single word but rather a phrase.

Tutorial: Make your own flowing skirt I remembered when I just passed college and was looking for a job. One day I got a letter for interview in another city very far from my place. I was frantically trying to put together my clothes but what I really needed was missing. Yes, A SKIRT. I had this blazer but with no matching skirt. I spent half day mall hopping with no result. So, if you happened to be in the same situation like I had but with novice skill of sewing, what would you do? What you need: * 1.5 meters of fabric (if you want the flowing flirting one, try crepe or poly cotton fabric) * Sewing notions: scissors, pin, newspaper, measuring tape, pencil, thread, etc and of course a sewing machine:) * elastic How to: 1. . 2. 3. Now let's make the pattern (see Photo for guidance) 2. 3. 5. 6. 7. It will look like this 1. 2. 3. 4. I hope it's clear enough, email me if you have any questions:) Happy Sewing

ARRGH…. é GASTREET The Greek Alphabet Phonology and Orthography Oops! Twenty-four letters only? Surely some sounds must be missing? That’s correct. And what about other very common sounds, like [b], [d], [g], etc.? No! There is one more sound in the language which is absent from the alphabet: it is [ŋ], the “ingma”, the last consonant in “king”. All of the above plus much more, including the pervasive phenomenon of palatalization, can be found in this page on the details of Modern Greek pronunciation, which includes sound samples with the author’s voice for all of the presented examples. You may also find useful this page, showing the sounds of Modern Greek against all possible sounds of any language in the world. For your convenience, here is a table to use as quick reference, listing the two-letter clusters that result in new sounds, not included in the Greek alphabet: Arguably, there are also the following pairs, which do not result in unique sounds but are perceived as “one thing” by native speakers of Greek:
