Communication of Emotions by Characters in a Flash Fiction (Based on Short Stories by Thomas Mann)

Communication of Emotions by Characters in a Flash Fiction (Based on Short Stories by Thomas Mann)

Abstract. The paper is devoted to the issue of nonverbal explication of emotions in literary texts of a flash fiction. Nonverbal means of communication are studied in several directions. There are works reflecting this problem from the perspective of semiotics, linguistics, sociolinguistics and psycholinguistics. A number of scientists is engaged in lexical description of paralinguisms. The study of linguostylistic problems of paralinguisms in literary works presents a special interest. The appeal to this problem is explained by the fact that adequate interpretation of a literary text is impossible without the corresponding reader’s understanding of nonverbal means of emotional expression since this requires nontrivial intellectual operations and a certain breadth of knowledge. The study is based on the analysis of three short stories by a famous German writer Thomas Mann: Der kleine Herr Friedemann (1898), Tobias Mindernickel (1898) and Tristan (1902). The rationale of the study is caused by the immaturity of this subject in German. The novelty is defined by the study of paralinguistic units in literary texts of T. Mann. The purpose of the paper is to describe nonverbal means and to define their functional yield in a literary text. To achieve this purpose, the paper deals with continuous sampling methods, contextual analysis and interpretation. The study showed that Thomas Mann uses paralinguisms to describe the main characters generally applying characterizing, evaluation, text-forming and forecast functions. Paralinguisms ensure text cohesion, integrity of its perception and are always aimed to implement the author’s plan and create the fictitious world of a literary work and consequently, contribute to the expression of an idea and a subject. The materials of the given paper may be used in theoretical courses of German lexicology, stylistics and in practical classes on literary text interpretation.

Krasnoselskii-Mann method for non-self mappings

Krasnoselskii-Mann method for non-self mappings

On the other hand, we observe that the strict convexity of the set C does appear to be unusual for results regarding the convergence of Krasnoselskii-Mann iterations. We do not know if our result can hold for a convex and closed set C, even at the price of strengthening the requirements on the map T .

A Picard-Mann hybrid iterative process

A Picard-Mann hybrid iterative process

The purpose of this paper is to prove that our process (.) converges faster than all of Picard, Mann and Ishikawa iterative processes for contractions in the sense of Berinde []. We support our analytical proof by a numerical example. We also prove a strong con- vergence theorem with the help of our process for the class of nonexpansive mappings in general Banach spaces and apply it to get a result in uniformly convex Banach spaces. We also prove some weak convergence results when the underlying space satisfies Opial’s con- dition or has the Fréchet differentiable norm or its dual satisfies the Kadec-Klee property. Let S = {x ∈ E : x = }, and let E ∗ be the dual of E. The space E has (i) Gâteaux differ- entiable norm if

Much pains have been taken by some to set your lordship's private character in an amiable light, but as it has chiefly been done by men who know nothing about you, and who are no ways remarkable for their attachment to us, we have no just authority for believing it. George the Third has imposed upon us by the same arts, but time, at length, has done him justice, and the same fate may probably attend your lordship. You avowed purpose here is to kill, conquer, plunder, pardon, and enslave: and the ravages of your army through the Jerseys have been marked with as much barbarism as if you had openly professed yourself the prince of ruffians; not even the appearance of humanity has been preserved either on the march or the retreat of your troops; no general order that I could ever learn, has ever been issued to prevent or even forbid your troops from robbery, wherever they came, and the only instance of justice, if it can be called such, which has distinguished you for impartiality, is, that you treated and plundered all alike; what could not be carried away has been destroyed, and mahogany furniture has been deliberately laid on fire for fuel, rather than the men should be fatigued with cutting wood.[2] There was a time when the Whigs confided much in your supposed candor, and the Tories rested themselves in your favor; the experiments have now been made, and failed; in every town, nay, every cottage, in the Jerseys, where your arms have been, is a testimony against you. How you may rest under this sacrifice of character I know not; but this I know, that you sleep and rise with the daily curses of thousands upon you; perhaps the misery which the Tories have suffered by your proffered mercy may give them some claim to their country's pity, and be in the end the best favor you could show them.

landscape as the sum of erasures, accretions, anomalies and redundancies over time. (22) This metaphor complements Edensor's approach to analyzing urban space, though Edensor qualifies the notion by asserting that a “palimpsest can be difficult to decode in its regulated appearance” (131). Indeed, the Apollonian approach to city planning seeks to strip a given area of its spacio-historical rhetoric unless it can cleanly assimilate it as something nonthreatening and largely vestigial. This tension is materially manifested within both The Tempest and Basket Case, but is coded spatially in relation to the bodies of characters themselves. In this way, it is helpful to consider the body as “[t]he complete physical form of a person or animal; the assemblage of parts, organs, and tissues that constitutes the whole material organism” (OED n.1a). The notion of physical completeness is especially important to consider during the Renaissance; culturally, it was believed that external appearance was the outward and visible sign of one's moral condition, as we observed in Thomas Adams’s exploration of diseases. Elements of this prejudice persist within the modern sphere, as is evidenced by the sense of terror the physically repulsive Belial is meant to prompt. Though discernibly anthropomorphic, his body appears unfinished and monstrous 6 , with missing or misshapen limbs and a fetus-like

Trend detection in pm 10 and meteorological parameters using mann kendall test –a case study Chennai city

In common with other measures of correlation, Kendall's tau will take values between ±1 and +1, with a positive correlation indicating that the ranks of both variables increase together whilst a negative Correlation indicates that as the rank of one variable increases, the other decreases. (Blackwell Publishing 2012). In time Series analysis it is essential to consider autocorrelation or serial correlation, defined as the correlation of a variable with itself over successive time intervals, prior to testing for trends. Autocorrelation increases the chances of detecting significant trends even if they are absent and vice versa. In order to consider the effect of auto correlation, Hamed and Rao (1998) suggest a modified Mann-Kendall test, which calculates the autocorrelation between the ranks of the data after removing the apparent trend. The adjusted variance is given by:

On the equivalence of Mann and Ishikawa iteration methods

On the equivalence of Mann and Ishikawa iteration methods

The Mann iterative scheme was invented in 1953, see [7], and was used to obtain convergence to a fixed point for many functions for which the Banach principle fails. For example, the first author in [8] showed that, for any contin- uous selfmap of a closed and bounded interval, the Mann iteration converges to a fixed point of the function.

It is the purpose of this paper to develop iteration (.) to the processes for nonexpansive mappings, asymptotically nonexpansive mappings, nonexpansive semigroups and asymp- totically nonexpansive semigroups in the frame of uniformly convex Banach space in Sec- tion  and Section . More precisely, we introduce the following modified Mann itera- tion processes for nonexpansive mappings, asymptotically nonexpansive mappings T and nonexpansive semigroups, asymptotically nonexpansive semigroups S = {T (t) : t ≥ }, re- spectively, with C a closed convex subset of a Banach space E:
