This study investigated the processing load of transitive sentences in two different basic word orders (i.e., VOS and SVO) in Kaqchikel Maya, with a particular focus on the animacy of the object. The results of a sentence plausibility judgment task showed that VOS sentences were processed faster than SVO sentences regardless of the animacy of the object. This supports the traditional analysis in Mayan linguistics that, although SVO is the most frequently used word order, the syntactically determined basic word order is VOS in Kaqchikel, as in many other Mayan languages. More importantly, the results suggest that the processing load in Kaqchikel sentence comprehension is more strongly affected by syntactic canonicity than production frequency or object animacy.
In this study, we tried to develop the in
situ coating methods of hydrophilic polymer solution containing water soluble
dye on nonwoven sheet for the colorimetric film sensor. And color change of coated
dye according to contact various gas samples (as strong acid and base,
chloroform, ammonia and HF) of this dye-coated nonwoven film was examined for
the application of chemically toxic materials detecting tools in the actual
site of working place without aid of any kinds of detecting devices. By the
addition of electron transfer agent (quinone derivatives), quick color change
behaviors were observed within 10 seconds under the contact of various toxic
gases in general condition(room temperature, 50% humidity).
