The MERLIN corpus is a written learner corpus for Czech, German, and Italian that has been designed to illustrate the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) with authentic learner data. The corpus contains 2,290 learner texts produced in standardized language certifications covering CEFR levels A1–C1. The MERLIN annotation scheme(More)
Fast alle Patienten mit amyotropher Lateralsklerose (ALS) leiden im Verlauf der Erkrankung an Symptomen der chronischen Hypoventilation. Diese Symptome können Jahre vor dem Tod auftreten und die Lebensqualität erheblich beeinträchtigen. Eine Möglichkeit zur Linderung dieser Beschwerden stellt die nichtinvasive, intermittierende Selbstbeatmung über Maske(More)
Dopamine transporter imaging was performed in 18 patients with sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and 11 age matched controls with [I-123] IPT (N-(3-iodopropen-2-yl)-2beta-carbomethoxy-3beta(4-chlorophen yl)-tropane), a new cocaine analogue that selectively binds to the dopamine transporter located on dopaminergic nerve terminals. Image analysis(More)
Almost all patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) experience symptoms of nocturnal hypoventilation during the course of the illness. These symptoms can develop years before death and may severely affect quality of life. Non-invasive intermittent home mechanical ventilation (HMV) via mask is a possible palliative measure for these symptoms, which(More)
Im vorliegenden Artikel wird die X-chromosomal rezessive bulbospinale Neuronopathie (X-BSN, Kennedy-Syndrom) anhand der Beschreibung 10 eigener Patienten und einer Übersicht über die bisherige Literatur vorgestellt. Die Symptome leiten sich von einer motorischen und sensiblen Neuronopathie und einer partiellen Androgeninsensitivität ab. Wegweisend für die(More)
Providing sets of semantically related words in the lexical entries of an electronic dictionary should help language learners quickly understand the meaning of the target words. Relational information might also improve memorisation, by allowing the generation of structured vocabulary study lists. However, an open issue is which semantic relations are(More)
Since its publication in 2001, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) has gained a leading role as an instrument of reference for language teaching and certification. Nonetheless, there is a growing concern about CEFR levels being insufficiently illustrated in terms of authentic learner data. Such concern grows even stronger when(More)
In this paper we present an approach to the coordination of complex systems operating in a multi-objective domain, which is an extention of the dynamic weighted aggregation method where the weightings are influenced by the decision makers themselves. This is implemented through an information theoretic voting model, taking its inspiration from the political(More)
