Formal methods and declarative technologies have recently witnessed a growing interest as a means to address such issues.The thesis provides a description of voice in Estonian, through an in-depth study of four valencyreducing constructions: the impersonal, personal passive, generic apersonal, and "...Phonesthemes have been documented in numerous languages from diverse language families, among them English, Swedish, and other Indo-European languages, Austronesian languages, and Japanese.Various studies have demonstrated that when asked to invent or interpret new words, subjects tend to follow patterns predicted by looking at the phonesthemes in their language.This approach demonstrates the vitality of phonesthemic patterns, but still does not provide any evidence about whether or how phonesthemes are represented in the minds of speaker-hearers.

Metonymy is construed as “a trope in which one word is put for another that suggests it” (=-=Porter 1913-=-) usually requiring some contextual or lexical contiguity between the literal and metonymic term.If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices.To extract such elements from a given text, we developed a probabilistic model to predict the exceeding of a confidence interval for specific sublexical units concerning their frequency of occurrence within a given text contrasted with a reference linguistic corpus for the German language.Implementing this model in a computational application, we provide a text analysis tool which automatically delivers information about sublexical phonological salience allowing researchers, inter alia, to investigate effects of the sublexical emotional tone of texts based on current findings on phonological iconicity. Can sounds have intrinsic, autonomous meaning, particularly in literary and poetic language?
