Studies in Turkish linguistics by Dan Isaac Slobin( )

19 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and held by 1,572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turkish is a member of the Turkic family of languages, which extends over a vast area in southern and eastern Siberia and adjacent portions of Iran, Afganistan, and China. Turkic, in turn, belongs to the Altaic family of languages. This book deals with the morphological and syntactic, semantic and discourse-based, synchronic and diachronic aspects of the Turkish language. Although an interest in morphosyntactic issues pervades the entire collection, the contributions can be grouped in terms of relative attention to syntax, semantics and discourse, and acquisition

She has her mother's laugh : the powers, perversions, and potential of heredity by Carl Zimmer( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A beguiling narrative"'Nature "A treasure trove"'Science "Magnificent"'Publisher's Weekly "Enchanting"'Kirkus Heredity is redefined in this sweeping, resonating overview of a force that shaped human society'a force set to shape our future even more radically. Award-winning, celebrated New York Times columnist and science writer Carl Zimmer presents a profoundly original perspective on what we pass along from generation to generation. Charles Darwin played a crucial part in turning heredity into a scientific question, and yet he failed spectacularly to answer it. The birth of genetics in the early 1900s seemed to do precisely that. Gradually, people translated their old notions about heredity into a language of genes. As the technology for studying genes became cheaper, millions of people ordered genetic tests to link themselves to missing parents, to distant ancestors, to ethnic identities... But, Zimmer writes, "Each of us carries an amalgam of fragments of DNA, stitched together from some of our many ancestors. Each piece has its own ancestry, traveling a different path back through human history. A particular fragment may sometimes be cause for worry, but most of our DNA influences who we are'our appearance, our height, our penchants'in inconceivably subtle ways." Heredity isn't just about genes that pass from parent to child. Heredity continues within our own bodies, as a single cell gives rise to trillions of cells that make up our bodies. We say we inherit genes from our ancestors'using a word that once referred to kingdoms and estates'but we inherit other things that matter as much or more to our lives, from microbes to technologies we use to make life more comfortable. We need a new definition of what heredity is and, through Carl Zimmer's lucid exposition and storytelling, this resounding tour de force delivers it. Weaving historical and current scientific research, his own experience with his two daughters, and the kind of original reporting expected of one of the world's best science journalists, Zimmer ultimately unpacks urgent bioethical quandaries arising from new biomedical technologies, but also long-standing presumptions about who we really are and what we can pass on to future generations

Vi sono formule magiche che agiscono in modo sempre nuovo nei secoli della storia spirituale dell'umanità. In Grecia, una di tali formule, veniva considerata come oracolo di Apollo: Conosci te stesso . Simili sentenze sembrano celare in sè una vita inesauribile: s'incontrano mentre si percorrono le più svariate vie della vita spirituale; e quanto più si va avanti, quanto più si penetra nella conoscenza delle cose, tanto più profondo ci appare il significato di tali formule. In certi momenti della nostra riflessione e meditazione, esse ci si accendono improvvisamente, illuminando tutta la nostra vita interiore: allora si ha quasi l'impressione di sentire il polso dell'evoluzione stessa dell'umanità. E come ci sentiamo vicini alle personalità del passato, quando una loro parola ci rivela ch'esse pure hanno avuto simili momenti ! Ci sentiamo messi nel più intimo rapporto con loro.
