An inter-annotator agreement measurement methodology for the Turkish Discourse Bank (TDB)
Yalçınkaya, Şaban İhsan; Zeyrek Bozşahin, Deniz; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2010)
In the TDB[1]-like corpora annotation efforts, which are constructed by the intuitions of the annotators, the reliability of the corpus can only be determined via correct interannotator agreement measurement methodology (Artstein, & Poesio, 2008). In this thesis, a methodology was defined to measure the inter-annotator agreement among the TDB annotators. The statistical tests and the agreement coefficients that are widely used in scientific communities, including Cochran’s Q test (1950), Fleiss’ Kappa (1971...
The use of verbal morphology in Turkish as a third language: The case of Russian-English-Turkish trilinguals
Antonova-Unlu, Elena; Sağın Şimşek, Sultan Çiğdem (SAGE Publications, 2015-06-01)
Aims and Objectives: Several studies suggest that third language acquisition (TLA) is marked with complex patterns of language interaction. However, it is not clear yet to what extent multilinguals activate each of their background languages in TLA, as various factors may trigger the activation of one of the previously learnt languages. This study aims to contribute to the discussion by examining the use of verbal morphology in third language (L3) Turkish of Russian-English-Turkish trilinguals. We investiga...
The effects of aquifer heterogeneity on the natural attenuation rates of chlorinated solvents
Önkal, Başak; Ünlü, Kahraman; Department of Environmental Engineering (2005)
Monitored natural attenuation has been particularly used at sites where petroleum hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents have contaminated soil and groundwater. One of the important aspects of the methodology that has been recognized recently is that the mass removal rates, the most important parameter to determine effectiveness of the methodology, is controlled by the groundwater flow regime and the aquifer heterogeneity. Considering this recognition, the primary objective of this study is to quantitatively...
The new chemicals policy of the eu and its environmental implications on EU and Turkey
Bacakoğlu, Zeliha; Güneş, Şule; Department of European Studies (2016)
This thesis aims at analysing the REACH Regulation which constitutes the backbone of the New Chemicals Policy of the EU in the context of the environmental framework. Related to that aim, basic instruments of the Regulation are considered in order to clarify what kind of health and environmental benefits to be obtained with them. Secondly, the EU-Turkey relations is examined with its twofold nature under the Customs Union and candidacy process by seeking an answer to the question of possible legislative and...
The processing of morphologically complex words in a specific speaker group A masked-priming study with Turkish heritage speakers
Jacob, Gunnar; Kırkıcı, Bilal (John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2016-01-01)
The present study investigates to what extent morphological priming varies across different groups of native speakers of a language. In two masked-priming experiments, we investigate the processing of morphologically complex Turkish words in Turkish heritage speakers raised and living in Germany. Materials and experimental design were based on Kirkici and Clahsen's (2013) study on morphological processing in Turkish native speakers and L2 learners, allowing for direct comparisons between the three groups. E...
