Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-Based Approach

By Thomas Hoffmann

This is the first study that empirically investigates preposition placement across all clause types. The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes. Over 100 authentic corpus examples are discussed in the text, which will appeal to those who want to see 'real data'

Title: Spoken Multimodal Human-Computer Dialogue in Mobile Environments
Edited By: Wolfgang Minker
Dirk Bühler
Laila Dybkjær
Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology 28
Description:

The ongoing migration of computing and information access from stationary
environments to mobile computing devices for eventual use in mobile
environments, such as Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), tablet PCs, next
generation mobile phones, and in-car driver assistance systems, poses
critical challenges for natural human-computer interaction. Spoken dialogue
is a key factor in ensuring natural and user-friendly interaction with such
devices which are meant not only for computer specialists, but also for
everyday users.

Speech supports hands-free and eyes-free operation, and becomes a key
alternative interaction mode in mobile environments, e.g. in cars where
driver distraction by manually operated devices may be a significant
problem. On the other hand, the use of mobile devices in public places, may
make the possibility of using alternative modalities possibly in
combination with speech, such as graphics output and gesture input,
preferable due to e.g. privacy issues. Researchers' interest is
progressively turning to the integration of speech with other modalities
such as gesture input and graphics output, partly to accommodate more
efficient interaction and partly to accommodate different user preferences.

This book:
*combines overview chapters of key areas in spoken multimodal dialogue
(systems and components, architectures, and evaluation) with chapters
focussed on particular applications or problems in the field;
*focuses on the influence of the environment when building and evaluating
an application.

Audience: Computer scientists, engineers, and others who work in the area
of spoken multimodal dialogue systems in academia and in the industry;
graduate students and Ph.D. students specialising in spoken multimodal
dialogue systems in general, or focusing on issues in these systems in
mobile environments in particular.
