We determine the productivity of determin-erless PPs in German quantitatively, restricting ourselves to the preposition unter. The study is based on two German newspaper corpora, comprising some 210 million words. The problematic construction, i.e. unter followed by a determinerless singular noun occurs some 16.000 times in the corpus. To clarify the(More)
In idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD) approximately 60 % of the nigrostriatal neurons of the substantia nigra (SN) are degenerated before neurologists can establish the diagnosis according to the widely accepted clinical diagnostic criteria. It is conceivable that neuroprotective therapy starting at such an 'advanced stage' of the disease will fail to(More)
Traditional approaches to prepositions classify preposition lexemes into different semantic classes like spatial, temporal or modal ones. In this paper we reconsider the so-called spatial prepositions and their subclassification. We propose a sense based classification of prepositions using traditional criteria to determine different classes of(More)
Prepositions are highly polysemous. Yet, little effort has been spent to develop language-specific annotation schemata for preposition senses to systematically represent and analyze the polysemy of prepositions in large corpora. In this paper, we present an annotation schema for preposition senses in German. The annotation schema includes a hierarchical(More)
The realization of singular count nouns without an accompanying determiner inside a PP (determinerless PP, bare PP, Preposition-Noun Combination) has recently attracted some interest in computational linguistics. Yet, the relevant factors for determiner omission remain unclear , and conditions for determiner omission vary from language to language. We(More)
Schizophrenia involves morphological brain changes, including changes in synaptic plasticity and altered dendritic development. Amongst the most promising candidate molecules for schizophrenia are neuronal nitric oxide (NO) synthase (NOS-I, also known as nNOS) and its adapter protein NOS1AP (previously named CAPON). However, the precise molecular mechanisms(More)
Orientation of spindles and cell division planes during development of many species ensures that correct cell-cell contacts are established, which is vital for proper tissue formation. This is a tightly regulated process involving a complex interplay of various signals. The molecular mechanisms underlying several of these pathways are still incompletely(More)
