Linguistic dimension of plastic arts: the names or lack of names of artworks
Karael, Burcu; Turan, Şeref Halil; Department of Philosophy (2019)
In this thesis, I investigate the linguistic dimension of plastic artworks focusing on their names. My analysis of names follows Ludwig Wittgenstein’s arguments in his books Tractatus Logico Philosopicus and Philosophical Investigations; and Martin Heidegger’s views on work of art and world play a complementary role. The “tension” between the image and the word is the main focus throughout this study.

The theoretical question is how the l...
Semantic dimensionality reduction during language acquisition: A window into concept representation
Özcan, Rojda; Bozşahin, Hüseyin Cem; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2022-8-31)
We explore the dimensionality in the semantic representations derived from the Eve fragment of the CHILDES database to gain insights into whether or not semantic dimensionality reduc- tion (DR) occurs during language acquisition, and if so to gain insights into how this reduction of dimensions could look like. We start exploring these representations that are in the form of lambda terms (LTs) by trying to find different representations for them which would be more suitable for the use of DR techniques on th...
