Estrogen treatment of immature or ovariectomized mature rats induces an increase in uterine cGMP content, with a peak 2-3 h after hormone administration. This response to estrogenic action also develops in vitro, in incubated uterine horns, thus excluding the intervention of another organ. Its function is still unknown. We show here that treatment of(More)
The effects of cortisol on several oestrogenic responses of the rat uterus were measured. Whether injected i.v., simultaneously with oestradiol-17 beta, or i.p,, 12 h before the oestradiol, cortisol had no effects on the oestrogen-induced increases in uterine glycogen, protein and DNA contents. In contrast, cortisol inhibited both uterine eosinophilia and(More)

I argue that despite their traditional verb-first vs. verb second partition, Welsh and Breton both instantiate a ban on verb-first and I present an analysis of these two languages as fundamentally verb second. In this view, so-called verb first orders prototypically illustrated by Welsh result from inconspicuous strategies to fill in the preverbal position,(More)
This article investigates the learnability filter (LF) hypothesis, according to which the set of logically possible grammars predicted by linguistic theory is reduced to a proper subset of learnable grammars by external principles of language learning. Anti-faithfulness constraints (Alderete, 2001a) provide a linguistic theory that predicts the existence of(More)
It is well known that cochlear implants enable profoundly deaf patients to reach high levels of speech intelligibility. They are, however, suboptimal for the perception of melody in music and speech. The reason for this is that implants are designed to code for the mid and high frequencies of sound, where phonemic information is contained. Low frequencies(More)
We previously reported on a positive correlation between two effects of estrogen on rat uterus, namely the early increases in cGMP and in water content of the organ suggesting that they were under the control of the same hormone sensitive regulatory process or linked by a cause to effect relationship. Up to now we were unable to find experimental conditions(More)
0. Introduction. In this paper, I will discuss some differences concerning word-order and discourse function across languages. The languages to be studied are Portuguese, English, Dutch and Icelandic. I will present some properties of the behavior of subjects and objects in these languages relating position of subjects and objects with their function in(More)
