This paper presents a context-based analysis of the intervals between different speakers' utterances in a corpus of task-oriented dialogue (the Human Communication Research Centre's Map Task Corpus. See Anderson et al. 1991). In the analysis, we assessed the relationship between inter-speaker intervals and various contextual factors, such as the effects of(More)
The work reported in this paper was the result of the need to label a large corpus of spontaneous, task-oriented dialogue with prosodic prominences. A computational model using only word duration, part of speech and a dictionary lookup of each word's canonical phonemic contents was trained against the results of a human coder marking prominence.

A series of novel 5-arylidene-2-thioxoimidazolidin-4-ones were investigated as inhibitors of the lymphocyte-expressed pore-forming protein perforin. Structure-activity relationships were explored through variation of an isoindolinone or 3,4-dihydroisoquinolinone subunit on a fixed 2-thioxoimidazolidin-4-one/thiophene core. The ability of the resulting(More)
