Cross-linguistic perspective on coordinated multiple sluicing

Coordinated multiple sluicing ("John said something about someone, but I don't remember what and about whom.") has been understudied in general, and in languages other than English (e.g., Croatian and Turkish) in particular. The project aims at filling this gap by investigating coordinated sluicing construction across three typologically different languages: English, Turkish and Croatian. The findings will shed light on the properties of coordination in natural language as well as on the typology of wh-movement.


Politics, law and morality: David Hume on justice
Eryılmaz, Enes; Turan, Şeref Halil; Department of Philosophy (2011)
This thesis evaluates David Hume’s notion of justice by examining the coherence in his legal, moral, and political philosophy. It is argued that on the whole, Hume’s use of the concept justice is coherent in his theories of law, ethics, and politics. To this end, firstly, Hume’s moral thought is examined in detail. Secondly, his legal theory and his position in legal philosophy are considered with references to its moral aspects. Next, Hume’s notion of justice is examined in its relation with the state. It ...
Lloyd George and the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire
Çilingir, Sedat; Karal Akgün, Seçil; Department of History (2007)
David Lloyd George, who was the Prime Minister during the period of 1916-1922, served in the British Parliament almost half-century. This thesis focuses on his foreign policy concerning the Ottoman Empire during his Premiership. Lloyd George intruded himself into almost every aspect of the ‘Turkish Question’ during and after the World War I, and was at the ‘centre’ in determining the fate of the Ottoman Empire. Although, the effect of ‘forces’ of economics and social elements have replaced the ‘Great Man’ t...
Secret Sharing Schemes and Linear Codes
Özadam, Hakan; Özbudak, Ferruh; Saygı, Zülfükar (null; 2007-12-14)
The study of secret sharing schemes was independently initiated by Shamir and Blakely in 1979. Since then several other secret sharing schemes were introduced. Many of those schemes are (n,k) threshold systems. In this work we give a survey on secret sharing schemes using linear codes. We analyze Shamir’s scheme with an emphasis on the access structure. We explain Massey’s linear secret sharing scheme and mention its superiority to (n,k) threshold systems.
Decision making under uncertainty: factors influencing mate selection in a dating application simulation
Semchenko, Ayten Yeşim; Çakır, Murat Perit; Temürcü, Ceyhan; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2017)
Human social intentions are heavily influenced by their perceptions of others. In this study, the effect of perceived attractiveness is of particular interest. The purpose of this study is to explore the effect of perceived attractiveness on the likelihood of wanting to have sex and the likelihood of using condom among dating application users. In real dating application environments, there would be many uncontrolled variables (e.g., age, not/having common friends etc.) related to the profiles that the part...
Gesturing literal and metaphorical motion events in children and adults
Hülagü, Ayşenur; Özge, Duygu (null; 2017-07-17)
The question as to how metaphors arise in thought and how they are interpreted in communication is a long-standing question from Aristotle to contemporary psycholinguists. For some, metaphors should be analyzed as analogies in order to receive meaning; that is, literal meaning is initially imposed (decomposition), and the choice of the metaphor is triggered only when the literal analysis fails (Searle, 1979; Gentner & Bowdle, 2008). For others, metaphors are stored as separate lexical items and interpreted ...
