Almost 80% of the UK public believe that antidepressants are addictive. Among the experts, there is a polarised debate of opposing views. Unfortunately, the argument is hindered by a lack of primary research and a virtual absence of research specifically investigating the prevalence of SSRI dependence according to ICD-10 criteria. Alleged SSRI dependence has become an internet “hot topic" and the subject of much media attention. This pilot study aimed to fill in some of the gaps in the literature on this issue.
Decision making is an essential part of our life and we naturally strive to support decisions by arguments; today, the Internet is an obvious place to search for them. Unfortunately, general-purpose search engines often fail to represent search results in a suitable way (e.g., contrasting supporting and opposing arguments). This work analyzes a corpus of ca. 80 German web documents about current educational topics for argumentation patterns. Significance testing experiments explore the role of discource markers and discourse relations in argumentation and classification experiments point towards Argument Extraction.

The main purpose of this quasi-experimental research was to investigate integrating dynamic assessment with process approach to promote GRE argument essay writing. The results indicated that the participants, instructed through the process-oriented approach to second language (L2) writing were more successful in GRE argument writing than those instructed through product-oriented approach. When compared with process group, Process Approach integrated with Dynamic Assessment group performed significantly better on the posttest GRE argument writing. The major implication for this study is that process approach instruction that was integrated with Dynamic assessment could enhance Iranian EFL learners’ argument writing abilities and skills beyond the contributions, made by a process-oriented approach. In fact, this approach helps GRE candidates compose more comprehensible and coherent argument essays and equip GRE teachers with more practical and effective methods of teaching GRE writing.

The topic of Argument Realization has been of special interest for many linguists, this work reports two studies related to Argument Realization. The main focus is on the Acquisition of the Manner-of-Motion and Resultative constructions in L2 English by native speakers of Spanish. Using Jackendoff's (1990) analysis of the predicate-argument meaning "Lexical Conceptual Structure - LCS" and following a lexical-syntactic approach proposed by Juffs (1996) at the level of lexical-semantic representation (Head Movement Parameter) where ± Head Movement of PLACE to PATH. English selects the + value, and Spanish selects the -value. Results suggest that the Spanish speakers initially transfer L1 lexical-semantic structures and their linking to syntax into their L2 grammars. The implications of the findings for current general hypotheses about second language acquisition are discussed.
This book is a comparative study of Argument Structure (AS) of Verbal Derivations in English and Persian. It shows how the morphological processe of derivation can affect the argument structure of the verb base. To study such an effect and to compare the simillar nature of AS in the two languages, we drew Lexical Conceptual Structure (LCS) of both stems and derived words. The LCS of each derived word illustrates the fact that most changes in AS of a word are the result of what happens to the semantic primitives of its LCS.
Languages differ in their incorporation of different semantic primitives such as CAUSE, CHANGE, PATH etc. These differences influence the morphosyntactic realisation of events and the participants of these events. This work attempts to trace the source of differences between English and Arabic with regard to their morphosyntactic realisation of argument structure and event types. There are also discussions as to the potential difficulties L2 learners of these languages might have as a result of these discrepancies.
The Genesis of Argument Structure follows the acquisition of argument structure and the verb phrase from the earliest stages of language production of one monolingual child learning Peninsular Spanish. Utilizing longitudinal data from the “Irene” corpus of the Child Language Data Exchange System (CHILDES), specific attention is paid to three areas of emergence: 1) argument-specific verb types, such as unaccusatives, unergatives, and transitives; 2) various morphological forms of the verb produced by the child, particularly tensed and non-tensed forms such as imperatives and infinitive expressions; and 3) the position of overt arguments. The data of this study suggest that arguments may be acquired in the order of Theme, Agent, and Experiencer. Earliest verb types produced were Theme-oriented. These were followed by Agent-only structures with no overt arguments. Also important is the early correlation found between morphological form and degree of agentivity of the verb, where verbs with Agent subjects exclusively appeared in the imperative and Theme-oriented verbs appeared primarily as tensed forms. When overt arguments did start to appear they did so postverbally.
This book offers a new argument for the ancient claim that well-being as the highest prudential good -- eudaimonia -- consists of happiness in a life according to virtue. Virtue is a source of happiness, but happiness also requires external goods. The argument takes into account recent work on happiness, well-being, and virtue, and defends a neo-Aristotelian conception of virtue as an integrated intellectual-emotional disposition that is limited in both scope and stability.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In linguistics, an argument is an expression that helps complete the meaning of a predicate. Most predicates take one, two, or three arguments. A predicate and its arguments form a predicate-argument structure. The discussion of predicates and arguments is associated most with (content) verbs and noun phrases (NPs), although other syntactic categories can also be construed as predicates and as arguments. Arguments must be distinguished from adjuncts. While a predicate needs its arguments to complete its meaning, the adjuncts that appear with a predicate are optional; they are not necessary to complete the meaning of the predicate. Most theories of syntax and semantics acknowledge arguments and adjuncts, although the terminology varies, and the distinction certainly exists in all languages. In syntax, the terms argument and complement overlap in meaning and use to a large extent. Dependency grammars sometimes call arguments actants, following Tesniere (1959).

Our main critique is based on L. Boff’s argument that the Holy Trinity should inspire and criticise human society. This research is a critique of this argument which is at the centre of Boff’s Trinitarian Social Model. Can Boff’s argument be considered as a mere hypothesis or rather a fundamental axiom, i.e. a verified and accepted argument? The original contribution of this work is not only in the critique of the Trinitarian Social Model (TSM) of Leonardo Boff, using the Small Christian Communities (SCCs) as a case study, but also in the proposition of the Social Trinitarian Model (STM) for Tanzanian society. This Social Trinitarian Model is based on SCCs in relationship to an inclusive Tanzanian spirit of unity and hope. It also includes the human values of ‘syn-bios,’ ‘syn-pathos’ and ‘syn-hodos.’ These human values are related to the Trinitarian life, koinonia and perichoresis. In fact, in the Social Trinitarian Model, SCCs are like a ‘foretaste’ (prolepsis) of the Kingdom of God. Though this Social Trinitarian Model is based on the SCCs of Tabora in Tanzania, it is not exclusively for Tanzanian society. It can inspire other African societies and other parts of the world.
The rule of law is a political ideal today endorsed and promoted worldwide. Or is it? In a significant contribution to the field, Nick Cheesman argues that Myanmar is a country in which the rule of law is 'lexically present but semantically absent'. Charting ideas and practices from British colonial rule through military dictatorship to the present day, Cheesman calls upon political and legal theory to explain how and why institutions animated by a concern for law and order oppose the rule of law. Empirically grounded in both Burmese and English sources, including criminal trial records and wide ranging official documents, Opposing the Rule of Law offers the first significant study of courts in contemporary Myanmar. It sheds new light on the politics of courts during dark times and sharply illuminates the tension between the demand for law and the imperatives of order.
The surface finish of ceramic restorations is important with respect to esthetics, strength, wear of opposing teeth. Hence, glazing has always been advocated as the last surface treatment before final cementation. It is a common practice for clinicians to adjust the porcelain surfaces of dental prostheses. Various options are available like unglazing, polishing and glazing. The change in surface roughness after different surface finishing techniques has attracted the attention of prosthodontist regarding wear of opposing teeth, the strength, plaque retention and appearance of restorations.Currently there exists a considerable controversy over applying the best method to achieve the smoothest and strongest porcelain restoration. In the literature contrasting opinions have been reported by different research groups regarding testing different ceramic materials and surface finishing techniques i.e. auto glazing, over glazing and polishing with a variety of instruments.

The swordfights become duals with katanas; the Capulets and the Montagues, opposing Yakuza families. Conflict explodes when Romeo - a bleached-blonde, well-dressed rock star - falls in love with Juliet, the pure and innocent Capulet daughter.
Drawing on scientific research and logical argument James Jones directly confronts the claims that cognitive science can eliminate, or debunk, religion. He provides an accessibly written, persuasive account of why these claims are not convincing.
Some of our earliest experiences of the conclusive force of an argument come from school mathematics: faced with a mathematical proof, we cannot deny the conclusion once the premises have been accepted. Behind such arguments lies a more general pattern of 'demonstrative arguments' that is studied in the science of logic. Logical reasoning is applied at all levels, from everyday life to advanced sciences, and a remarkable level of complexity is achieved in everyday logical reasoning, even if the principles behind it remain intuitive. Jan von Plato provides an accessible but rigorous introduction to an important aspect of contemporary logic: its deductive machinery. He shows that when the forms of logical reasoning are analysed, it turns out that a limited set of first principles can represent any logical argument. His book will be valuable for students of logic, mathematics and computer science.
