Does adult input play a role in children's output of ditransitives and passives?
In order to characterize the bilingual English children's production of ditransitives and passives and taking into account the three research questions above, four predictions are made:
The results obtained from the corpus for the Outer Circle varieties of English might be influenced by the expression of the passive voice in the substrate languages.
In fact, most passive get constructions in the corpus carry semantically neutral and non-adversative implications for the subject, as in get sent or get written, and this extends to all varieties of English under consideration.
Millions of homes and businesses throughout the country are using smart meters which have passive
components to thank for powering their "smart" abilities.
For those unfamiliar with embedded passive
processes, I'll attempt to explain the basic parameters.
The Japanese indirect passive
is a choice if one perceives an event from the perspective of the experiencer, while the prototypical passives
in German and Japanese, ones with a typical transitive verb, profile the perspective from the patient.
If your layout tool supports embedded passive
components (such as Mentor Graphics' SuperMax), the process is going to be somewhat easier for you.
The decision to convert discrete passives
to embedded passives
is more complicated than simply reducing the cost of part procurement and paying more for the board.
Contra the prepositional approach, it has been claimed in the literature that Chinese passives
are biclausal sentences, in which bei is analyzed as a verb taking an embedded clause as its complement (Hashimoto 1969, 1987; Yue-Hashimoto 1971; Chu 1973).
Most of the major passive
components markets will experience cyclical slowing at the original equipment level.
LEP panels are ready for commercial introduction for low-information-content displays such as those used for small appliances and backlights.
