Effects of second-language acquisition on character introductions in 5-and 7-year-old bilingual and monolingual children's Frog story narratives Authors:
Publisher and Date:(SAGE PUBLICATIONS LTD, 2021)This study investigates the effects of early second-language (L2) acquisition on introduction of characters in narrative discourse by comparing 5- and 7-year-old monolingual (first-language [L1] = Turkish) and bilingual (L1 = Turkish, L2 = English) children.

Publisher and Date:(SAGE PUBLICATIONS LTD, 2020)This paper introduces a type of graph called 'homeomorphically irreducible tree' (HIT) and explores its analytical and computational aspects in the architecture of radial prison plans. As a theoretical introduction, HITs are first diagrammatically presented using a taxonomy of 20 different radial prisons. Using this analysis, a generative algorithm that transforms plan connectivity to a simple sequential numeric representation is developed. This method is applied as an architectural plan generator ...
