An Empirical Study on the Attrition Sequence of English Interrogative Structures in Chinese Context  [PDF]
Yan Liu
Open Journal of Modern Linguistics (OJML) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojml.2014.45052
Abstract: In view of the important role that language attrition plays in language learning and teaching, this study is designed to probe into Chinese adult EFL learners’ attrition sequence of English interrogations. The participants investigated in this study are 243 Chinese EFL graduates who had graduated for at least two years. The main measurement employed is a questionnaire, with 40 items of English interrogative sentences included. It is detected that the attrition sequence roughly reflects the inversed pattern of acquisition sequence of English interrogations in Chinese context, which echoes with the assumption of Jakobson’s Regression Hypothesis. The findings also shed light on English teaching and learning in China. As Regression Hypothesis suggests that language components might be lost in the reverse order in which they are acquired, learners are expected to timely review acquired language skills prone to attrition. In addition, it is hoped that understanding some of the dynamic processes of language retention and attrition will increase teachers’ and learners’ awareness and ability to make their own personal observations and to help keep EFL learners’ language abilities.

Yan Liu
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2018.68007
Abstract: As a kind of policy tools with strong Chinese characteristics, Mobilized Governance has a deep historical origin. Moreover, it has become the preference of public governors when they faced with internal public issues. This paper based on the case analysis of M city, in which taking a series of policy measures of “Mobilized Governance” in the process of constructing the National Sanitation City (Chuang Wei) to achieve policy objectives, and explores the intrinsic logic why “Mobilized Governance” has become the policy tool selection preference of public governors. And the final conclusion is that the path dependence of political mobilization, the limitation of policy resources, and the structural limitation of bureaucratic system are the reasons for this preference.
Empirical Study on the Impact of Domestic Economic Cycle on Sichuan’s Tourism  [PDF]
Junrong Liu, Qin Yan
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2012.53034
Abstract: This article empirically enquires, from the perspective of demand, the impact of economic cyclical fluctuation on Sichuan tourism. The findings show that Sichuan tourism demand proves elastic to CPI, Sichuan’s GNI capita and interest rate, and that CPI and interest rate fluctuations are negatively correlated with Sichuan domestic tourism demand, while, with which Sichuan’s GNI capita is positively associated. The study also finds that per capita national income and the local consumer price index enjoy strong predictive power for Sichuan tourism.
Winning Consumers through Experience: Competition between Domestic and International Businesses  [PDF]
Yan Liu, Dahai Dong
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2013.33040
Abstract: Retail internationalization has received increasing attention due to its popularity as a business practice. Previous studies have focused on two main factors in the process of retail internationalization: resources and environment. In the resources category, one of the key factors that has been extensively studied is social capital [1]. And in the environment category, one of the most influential environmental factors is cultural distance and its consequence, psychic distance [2]. However, few studies have investigated social capital from the consumers’ perspective and considered the influence of psychic distance perceived by international retailers’ targeted consumers in the host market on their acceptance. This study aims to investigate how to decrease consumers’ psychic distance to obtain initial acceptance from the targeted consumers in the host country. Previous studies have found that perception is shaped through experience [3,4]. Therefore, the main argument in our study is that international businesses should focus on experiential marketing to reduce consumers’ psychic distance. In order to understand this argument in the host market competition, experiential marketing strategies in the domestic businesses framework, as well as in the international businesses framework, will be compared.


The Opposition and Integration between Civilization and Nature―Analysis of Wuthering Heights from the Perspective of Eco-Criticism  [PDF]
Junhong Tang, Yan Liu
Advances in Literary Study (ALS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/als.2014.24022
Abstract: Eco-criticism offers a new perspective for us to study Wuthering Heights. In Wuthering Heights, the place of Wuthering Heights and the residents are the representatives of nature, while the place of Thrushcross Grange and the residents are the spokesmen of civilization. The history of the changing relationship between the human beings and the nature is reflected in the relationships of the main characters in Wuthering Heights. Long ago the human beings lived in awe of the nature and admired it and then they exploited the nature excessively. At last they return to respect the nature and form a harmonious relationship between the human beings and the nature under the guidance of the eco-ethic. With the deterioration of the environment, the relationship between the human beings and the nature reflected in Wuthering Heights drives the modern people to think deeply.
Methane Desorption from Homogeneous Distributed Micro-Pores of Coal  [PDF]
Wei Liu, Zhenxin Yan
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Physics (JAMP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jamp.2015.36077
Abstract: The thermal desorption kinetic mechanism from internal micro-pores of coal is theoretically investigated by Monte Carlo simulations. It is supposed that the molecules are absorbed in the pores and can jump between adjacent ones. The desorption rates of the statistical ensemble average are calculated. The competing effect of the temperature and the adsorptive energy is analyzed. The desorption probabilities indicated that the choice of desorption energy is clear at low temperature, however, there is not clearly different between high temperature.

Yongqin Yan, Haohan Liu
Engineering (ENG) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/eng.2016.83009
Abstract: The effective implementation of the project management plays a core roll in avoiding bad project use effect and waste of funds, caused by asset management planning and design errors or equipment selection errors; meanwhile, it can effectively improve the operational efficiency of enterprise assets, lower operating costs and save resources. In June 1974, A. Gordon published a paper “3L Economics Concept” as the starting point, on the “Building and Quantity Surveying”, which is organized by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. In this paper, a review of domestic and foreign research, from 1974 to 2015, on the total life cycle management progress will be given, and then a comment on it will be established. After detailed investigation and analysis of related materials, we can draw a conclusion: the study of the oil and gas development project lifecycle management is just beginning now. Hence, building the whole life cycle planning index system in line with the characteristics of oil and gas development project is very necessary.

Yan Liu, Huayang Zhang
Journal of Geoscience and Environment Protection (GEP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/gep.2016.44019
Abstract: Vitamin D is responsible for enhancing intestinal absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphate and zinc by involving in the metabolism. However, its use in additive field is limited by its low aqueous solubility and chemical stability. So trace amounts of VD3 was wrapped in β-CD molecule by the method of saturated aqueous vacuum drying, in order to improve its stability, uniformity and solubility in food and feed additive. The inclusion complex was characterized by NMR, IR techniques and compared with original VD3 in the aspect of stability and bioavailability. Results of orthogonal design experiments show that the optimum technology of inclusion is that the feed ratio of β-CD to VD3 is 15:1, being stirred for 5 hours at 80°C.?Dispersion of VD3 in the inclusion complex is more uniform, while stability and absorption rate of inclusion complex are significantly higher than original VD3.
The Impacts of Customer Interaction and Social Capital on New Service Development Performance  [PDF]
Zhaoquan Jian, Yan Liu
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2016.612106
Abstract: Customer interaction has a positive impact on new service development of firms. Nowadays, in the networked economies and societies, the importance of social capital as related to new service development performance is also becoming prominent. However, the existing literature does not reveal much about the relationships among the three variables. Based on customer cooperation innovation theory and new service development theory, this paper tested hypotheses by using the empirical data of 219 knowledge intensive business service firms in the Pearl River Delta of China. The study finds that customer interaction has a distinct positive impact on new service development performance; and social capital has a distinct positive impact on new service development performance. Furthermore, social capital plays a regulatory role in the relationship between customer interaction and new service development performance. By exploring the issues above, the paper will enrich research in the area of service science, especially new service development in China. Meanwhile, our findings will help managers to improve new service development performance by utilizing customer interaction and social capital.
Comparison between Peer Feedback and Automated Feedback in College English Writing: A Case Study  [PDF]
Yang Luo, Yan Liu
Open Journal of Modern Linguistics (OJML) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojml.2017.74015
Abstract: As written feedback is an indispensable component of instructing and learning process, the implementation of effective feedback plays a key role in improving non-English majors’ writing skill. Peers and automated writing evaluation systems are new, main sources of feedback providers in college English writing. This paper compares three feedback conditions: individual and group modes in peer feedback and automated feedback. Analysis is made on distribution features from feedback types, dimensions of assessment rubric, aspects of organization and linguistic performance, and reflected attitudes. The findings indicate automated mode and group mode take turns dominating in non-corrective feedback and corrective feedback; group mode takes the lead in both direct and indirect feedback; individual, group and automated modes underemphasize global feedback. Dimensions are found to centre on linguistic performance, followed by organization, content and format, differences and similarities of specific aspects and attitudes are also found in all three modes. Further investigations are undertaken into students’ perceptions towards peer feedback and automated feedback, with their respective merits and demerits summed up. On the basis of all the findings, key elements of sociocultural theory are explored to provide multi-dimensional feedback scaffolding for students of lower-intermediate level in facilitating college English writing.
