Correlate Not Optional: Pp Sprouting And Parallelism In “Much Less” Ellipsis, Katy Carlson, Jesse A. Harris Jun 2019

Correlate Not Optional: Pp Sprouting And Parallelism In “Much Less” Ellipsis, Katy Carlson, Jesse A. Harris

Faculty Research at Morehead State University

Clauses that are parallel in form and meaning show processing advantages in ellipsis and coordination structures (Frazier et al. 1984; Kehler 2000; Carlson 2002). However, the constructions that have been used to show a parallelism advantage do not always require a strong semantic relationship between clauses. We present two eye tracking while reading studies on focus-sensitive coordination structures, an understudied form of ellipsis which requires the generation of a contextually salient semantic relation or scale between conjuncts. However, when the remnant of ellipsis lacks an overt correlate in the matrix clause and must be “sprouted” in the ellipsis site, the ...

Independence And Domination On Shogiboard Graphs, Doug Chatham Jan 2018

Independence And Domination On Shogiboard Graphs, Doug Chatham

Faculty Research at Morehead State University

Given a (symmetrically-moving) piece from a chesslike game, such as shogi, and an n × n board, we can form a graph with a vertex for each square and an edge between two vertices if the piece can move from one vertex to the other. We consider two pieces from shogi: the dragon king, which moves like a rook and king from chess, and the dragon horse, which moves like a bishop and rook from chess. We show that the independence number for the dragon kings graph equals the independence number for the queens graph. We show that the (independent) domination ...

An Alternative To Acetolysis: Application Of An Enzyme-Based Method For The Palynological Preparation Of Fresh Pollen, Honey Samples And Bee Capsules, Jennifer M. K. O'Keefe, Carol L. Wymer Oct 2017

An Alternative To Acetolysis: Application Of An Enzyme-Based Method For The Palynological Preparation Of Fresh Pollen, Honey Samples And Bee Capsules, Jennifer M. K. O'Keefe, Carol L. Wymer

Faculty Research at Morehead State University

Acetolysis has been widely used for the preparation of modern pollen samples since its introduction by Erdtman. It has several disadvantages in both safety and resultant changes to the size and, in some cases, structure of pollen grains. The enzymatic technique introduced by Schols and colleagues is tested on a fresh pollen sample, a honey sample and a bee pollen capsule. The technique increases processing time, but is completely non-toxic, easy to complete and comparable in cost to acetolysis. Even very fragile grains are not damaged by this technique.

Asca And Xmm-Newton Observations Of The Galactic Supernova Remnant G311.5-0.3, Thomas G. Pannuti Sep 2017

Asca And Xmm-Newton Observations Of The Galactic Supernova Remnant G311.5-0.3, Thomas G. Pannuti

Faculty Research at Morehead State University

We present an analysis of X-ray observations made with ASCA and XMM-Newton of the Galactic supernova remnant (SNR) G311.5−0.3. Prior infrared and radio observations of this SNR have revealed a shell-like morphology at both wavelengths. The spectral index of the radio emission is consistent with synchrotron emission, while the infrared colors are consistent with emission from shocked molecular hydrogen. Also previous CO observations have indicated an interaction between G311.5−0.3 and an adjacent molecular cloud. Our previous analysis of the pointed ASCA observation made of this SNR detected X-ray emission from the source for the ...

A Recycling Method For Lst® Contaminated During Heavy Liquid Separation In Palynological Processing, Jennifer M.K. O'Keefe, Brandon G. Van Ness, Morgan K. Black, Clayton R. Gullett Jun 2017

A Recycling Method For Lst® Contaminated During Heavy Liquid Separation In Palynological Processing, Jennifer M.K. O'Keefe, Brandon G. Van Ness, Morgan K. Black, Clayton R. Gullett

Faculty Research at Morehead State University

An aqueous solution of LST® is one of many heavy liquids used to concentrate palynomorphs. It and aqueous solutions of sodium polytungstate (SPT) are replacing toxic heavy liquids, such as bromoform and zinc bromide, and to a lesser extent zinc chloride, in many palynology laboratories. Both non-toxic heavy liquids can be recycled through filtering and evaporation of water and/or ethanol added to the sample during processing, and commonly are. Both media, and especially LST®, are somewhat reactive with organic matter, and in humic-acid rich samples become contaminated and discoloured. This paper presents the authors' methods for recycling LST® and ...


Form And Function: Optional Complementizers Reduce Causal Inferences, Katy Carlson, Hannah Rohde, Joseph Tyler May 2017

Form And Function: Optional Complementizers Reduce Causal Inferences, Katy Carlson, Hannah Rohde, Joseph Tyler

Faculty Research at Morehead State University

Many factors are known to influence the inference of the discourse coherence relationship between two sentences. Here, we examine the relationship between two conjoined embedded clauses in sentences like The professor noted that the student teacher did not look confident and (that) the students were poorly behaved. In two studies, we find that the presence of that before the second embedded clause in such sentences reduces the possibility of a forward causal relationship between the clauses, i.e., the inference that the student teacher’s confidence was what affected student behavior. Three further studies tested the possibility of a backward ...

Grades 6-12 Engineering Project: Turbine Design, Hans Chapman, Lesia Lennex, Justin Elswick, April Haight

Faculty Research at Morehead State University

Developing enthusiasm and creativity to resolve world energy problems is a dilemma facing educators. How can educators bring the excitement of real-world issues into their classrooms? What kind of affordable equipment can they use? This project seeks to develop materials and means through which Middle and High School students can creatively engineer solutions to existent problems. What kind of turbine, in a gravity-fed system, would generate the most energy? Results from an engineering thought survey and turbine energy production are presented in this session.


Battered Not Broken, Daryl R. Privott Jan 2017

Battered Not Broken, Daryl R. Privott

Faculty Research at Morehead State University

Reflecting on the 2016 voting season, we are challenged to think anew concerning the connection between the theory and practice of social justice and adult education. I suggest that we should mirror the mission of the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education (AAACE), and its call to “provide leadership for the field of adult and continuing education” (AAACE, 2017). It is my belief that as adult educators, we have not provided leadership for the field in addressing social justice issues because we have been battered and are fearful to address civic(s) topics. Battered is defined as “injured by ...


Towards A More User Friendly Technique For Predicting Photovoltaic Energy Output, Hans Chapman Jan 2017

Towards A More User Friendly Technique For Predicting Photovoltaic Energy Output, Hans Chapman

Faculty Research at Morehead State University

Several factors impact the power output from solar photovoltaic (PV) modules. Some are deterministic and controllable and others are uncontrollable (e.g., meteorological conditions), yet critical to performance. The objective of this paper is to assess the relationship between the meteorological variables and the power output of a mono silicon PV module using Multiple Linear Regression modelling. The approach involved exposing one mono-silicon photovoltaic module to the open atmosphere for a period of time and measuring the electrical energy output as a function of natural variation in the meteorological factors. A regression model for the power output was developed and ...

The Maximum Queen’S Problem With Pawns, Doug Chatham Dec 2016

The Maximum Queen’S Problem With Pawns, Doug Chatham

Faculty Research at Morehead State University

The classic n-queens problem asks for placements of just n mutually non-attacking queens on an n × n board. By adding enough pawns, we can arrange to fill roughly one-quarter of the board with mutually non-attacking queens. How many pawns do we need? We discuss that question for square boards as well as rectangular m × n boards.

Video Captions For Online Courses: Do Youtube’S Auto-Generated Captions Meet Deaf Students’ Needs?, Becky Sue Parton Aug 2016

Video Captions For Online Courses: Do Youtube’S Auto-Generated Captions Meet Deaf Students’ Needs?, Becky Sue Parton

Faculty Research at Morehead State University

Providing captions for videos used in online courses is an area of interest for institutions of higher education. There are legal and ethical ramifications as well as time constraints to consider. Captioning tools are available, but some universities rely on the auto-generated YouTube captions. This study looked at a particular type of video—the weekly informal news update created by individual professors for their online classes—to see if automatic captions (also known as subtitles) are sufficiently accurate to meet the needs of deaf students. A total of 68 minutes of video captions were analysed and 525 phrase-level errors were ...
