  • English-speaking children's early passives: evidence from syntactic priming 

    Messenger, Katherine; Branigan, Holly P.; McLean, Janet F.; Sorace, Antonella (Cascadilla Press, 2008-04)
    This syntactic priming study investigated semantic and lexical factors in 3- and 4-year-olds’ passives: early use of the English passive is argued to be semantically constrained to action verbs (Maratsos et al 1985) and ...

    Fraser, Joanna (Abertay UniversityScience Engineering and Technoloy, 2013-08)
    Fingermarks have been used for centuries as a means of determining an individual’s identity and fabrics have long been considered a difficult substrate from which to visualise and collect fingermarks. This study mainly ...
  • Enhancement of the advanced Fenton process (Fe0/H2O2) by ultrasound for the mineralization of phenol

    The effect of isolated cellulose binding domains (CBDs) on the hydrolysis of filter paper and microcrystalline cellulose by both cellobiohydrolase I and endoglucanase, was studied. CBDs were obtained by proteolysis from ...
  • Enhancement of the least-squares Padé method for discrete systems 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Sage Publications, 2000-03)
    The least-squares Padé method for discrete system order reduction is further enhanced. First, it is shown how the method may be extended to produce true least-squares approximations between the time responses of the full ...
  • Enhancement of two-wave coupling in a Ce:KNSBN crystal with optimum polarization of the writing beams 

    Liang, Bao-Lai; Wang, Zhaoqi; Cartwright, Colin M.; Gillespie, W. A.; Ding, Mei-Song (Optical Society of America, 2001)
    We have improved the two-wave coupling amplification and the signal-to-noise ratio of an amplified signal with photorefractive cerium-doped potassium sodium strontium barium niobate (Ce:KNSBN) by employing optimum polarization ...
  • Enhancement of water treatment sustainability through dynamic visualisation & modelling 

    Isaacs, John P.; Falconer, Ruth E.; Gilmour, Daniel J.; Blackwood, David J.; Comber, Sean; Whitehead, Paul (Acqua Consultoria, 2011-09)
    The Water Framework Directive (WFD) proscribes specific levels of contaminates present in rivers and lakes in the UK, these contaminants come from a wide range of sources such as food additives present in faeces, agricultural ...
  • Enhancing children's event recall after long delays 

    La Rooy, David J.; Pipe, Margaret-Ellen; Murray, Janice E. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2007-01)
    The effects of context reinstatement as means of enhancing 5- and 6-year-old children's event memory in repeated interviews after a 6-month delay were examined. Children were interviewed immediately after the event (baseline ...
  • Enhancing urban sustainability through novel visualisation 

    Gilmour, Daniel J.; Falconer, Ruth E.; Blackwood, David J.; Isaacs, John P. (Loughborough University, 2009)
    Sustainable decision making in Urban Design is a complex process that requires the interaction of a wide variety of stakeholders. The engagement of a range of stakeholders throughout the decision making process presents ...
  • Enhancing urban sustainability using 3D visualisation 

    Isaacs, John P.; Falconer, Ruth E.; Gilmour, Daniel J.; Blackwood, David J. (Thomas Telford, 2011-06)
    This paper presents the results of an initial application of a prototype simulation and visualisation tool (S-City VT) thatwas developed to enable all stakeholders, regardless of background or experience, to understand, ...
  • The enigma of facial asymmetry: Is there a gender specific pattern of facedness? 

    Hardie, Scott M.; Hancock, Peter; Rodway, Paul; Penton-Voak, Ian; Carson, Derek; Wright, Lynn (Taylor & Francis, 2005-07)
    Although facial symmetry correlates with facial attractiveness, human faces are often far from symmetrical with one side frequently being larger than the other (Kowner, 1998). Smith (2000) reported that male and female ...
  • Environmental modification and niche construction: developing O2 gradients drive the evolution of the Wrinkly Spreader 

    Koza, Anna; Moshynets, Olena; Otten, Wilfred; Spiers, Andrew J. (International Society for Microbial Ecology, 2011-04)
    The evolutionary success of the novel Wrinkly Spreader (WS) genotypes in diversifying Pseudomonas fluorescens SBW25 populations in static liquid microcosms has been attributed to the greater availability of O2 at the ...
  • The environmental plasmid pQBR103 alters the single-cell raman spectral profile of Pseudomonas fluorescens SBW25 

    Ude, Susanne; Bailey, Mark J.; Huang, Wei E.; Spiers, Andrew J. (Springer Verlag, 2007-04)
    Although plasmids are ubiquitous amongst phytosphere pseudomonads, the advantage and costs of plasmids for the bacterial host remain unclear. The application of single-cell Raman spectral analysis to plasmid–bacterial ...
