The immunohistochemical expression of p53 and c-erbB-2 gene proteins was examined in a series of 130 breast adenocarcinomas. This study intended to investigate whether the frequency of the altered expression of the tumour suppressor gene p53 and the overexpression of the oncogene c-erbB-2 in breast cancer tissue cells correlated with other variables known(More)
Order preservation effects are documented with a number of movement operations in various languages, among them wh-movement in English (superiority), multiple wh-movement in Bulgarian, object shift in Danish and Icelandic, pronoun fronting in German, Case-driven NP raising in English, and quantifier raising in German. Beginning with Lakoff (1971), several(More)
What mechanisms does the child bring to bear on the early acquisition of argument structure and grammatical relations? At least two competing hypotheses have emerged concerning this issue. The first, Semantic Bootstrapping (Grimshaw, 1981; Pinker, 1984; Grimshaw and Pinker, 1990; and see also Randall, this volume) reduces early syntactic knowledge to the(More)
In this paper, we investigate the performance of a Greek-English bilingual patient with Broca's aphasia and mild agrammatism on the placement of CP, MoodP, AspectP, and NegP-related adverbs, labeled specifier-type adverbs, and VP-related adverbs, labeled complement-type adverbs, by means of a constituent ordering task and a grammaticality judgment task.(More)
The Alzheimer Disease Assessment Scale (ADAS) and the Functional Cognitive Assessment Scale (FUCAS) examine the cognitive performance of patients with dementia. ADAS has been widely used as a clinical instrument, mainly in clinical trials. FUCAS is a useful tool in diagnosing early dementia since it examines executive skills. Moreover, it is sensitive to(More)
