Implant Rehabilitation in Grafted and Native Bone in Patients Affected by Ectodermal Dysplasia: Evaluation of 78 Implants Inserted in 8 Patients
The use of dental implants and bone grafts to orally rehabilitate patients affected by ED is a valuable service with no difference in the results compared with unaffected patients, at least in adults.
An Algebraic Analysis of Clitic Pronouns in Italian
We analyze both pre-and post-verbal clitics in Italian in the context of infinitival phrases and declarative sentences, using a new form of categorial grammar in which one assigns to each morpheme a
A Computational Algebraic Approach to Latin Grammar
We present a type theoretic analysis of Latin grammar, which pays as much attention to inflectional morphology as to syntax. We assign different types to the finite forms of Latin verbs as well as to
Word Order Alternation in Sanskrit via Precyclicity in Pregroup Grammars
A pregroup grammar is developed for a basic fragment of Sanskrit, similar to the fragment used by Lambek in his treatment of English in a number of papers, and is invoked to analyze quantum protocols in the work of Abramsky and Coecke.
A Tale of Four Grammars
In this paper we consider the relations existing between four deductive systems that have been called “categorial grammars” and have relevant connections with linguistic investigations: the syntactic
Semantic Categories and the Development of Categorial Grammars
A main claim about Categorial Grammars is that they involve semantic categories rather than the standard syntactic categories employed in linguistic description. But, what kind of entities are
Non-Commutative Linear Logic in Linguistics
Given the symmetric architecture and the crucial role played by the two negations of Non-commutative Linear Logic in the generation of the logical types, this system is richer in expressive power and in the capacity of performing left-to-right computations of word strings.
Agreement and Cliticization in Italian: A Pregroup Analysis
This paper presents an analysis of features specification and agreement based on the parallel computations of a type calculus involving two pregroups grammars: the free pregroup of syntactic types
Applying Pregroups to Italian Statements and Questions
The calculus of pregroups represents a flexible and efficient computational device for the analysis and derivation of Italian sentences and questions and the distinction between direct vs. indirect statements and questions is explored.
