Abstract This study is a close replication of Kanwit and Geeslin (2014), a variationist investigation of the interpretation of verbal moods in adverbial clauses in Spanish. Whereas the first language (L1) of the second-language participants in the initial study was English, we explore whether Kanwit and Geeslin’s results extend to other L1 populations—Swedish and French learners of Spanish. Participants in the replication study completed the same interpretation task and grammar test as those in the initial study. Results showed, for example, that multiple factors influenced their variable interpretation of verbal moods, there was evidence of change between course levels, and there were certain differences in interpretation between the French and Swedish groups. This study contributes to knowledge about the interpretation of a variable structure by enhancing the confirmatory power of some of the initial study’s findings, while also suggesting that the learners’ L1 leads to diverging findings.

Aphasia is an acquired language disorder that impacts all language abilities, rendering normal communication extremely difficult. Grammatical processing is often impaired in aphasia. Pronouns are often found to be effortful, with difficulty interpreting to whom a pronoun might refer. This study aimed to investigate whether interpreting pronouns and reflexives with and without potential quantified antecedents (i.e., “Every rabbit / Rabbit is pointing at itself/it/monkey”) are impaired in aphasia in Turkish, and whether quantifier spreading errors occur during pronoun/reflexive processing. A total of 12 people with aphasia (PWA) (two females, Mage= 59.7, SD = 14.55) and 15 age-matched healthy controls were recruited and asked to listen to 24 sentences in conditions of non-quantified and quantified subjects in which different referential and pronominal variables were controlled for (pronoun, reflexive, and R-expression). These participants were admitted to a picture-sentence matching paradigm with an end-of-trial truth-value judgment task. They were presented with a picture which either matched or mismatched the sentence contexts, and they were asked to respond. Their accuracy and response times were recorded and analyzed using mixed-effects regression models. The findings showed that the PWA performed more poorly and slowly than the control group and that both the groups performed more slowly responding to the quantified subjects than non-quantified ones. The PWA made interpretation errors in mismatch conditions, particularly for quantified subjects, evoking longer response times compared to non-quantified subjects. In conclusion, this study showed that quantifier spreading errors are observed in Turkish aphasia, which does not necessarily depend on pronominal/anaphoric resolution. It is suggested that the PWA’s sentence interpretation difficulty was underlined in two forms of separate impairments: interpreting quantifier scope and impairments in resolving pronominal/anaphoric elements.

The French verb laisser (‘to let’) allows for two different syntactic constructions, an Exceptional Case Marking (ECM) construction and a Faire-Infinitive (FI) construction with a postverbal Causee, and for two different interpretations, authorize and not-intervene. According to previous studies (e.g. Kayne 1975), constructions are related to interpretations: the ECM can express intentionality, the FI cannot. In this paper, we explore a different hypothesis: the ECM construction is underspecified and allows for both interpretations, while the FI is restricted to the not-intervening interpretation. We provide empirical evidence from three distinct forced choice tasks in which participants had to match constructions and interpretations. The results reveal that, contrary to both early observations and our initial hypothesis, both constructions may allow for both interpretations, and variation depends less on the syntactic configuration than on semantic and pragmatic factors, namely on the lexical inferences triggered by the embedded verb and the authority relation between Causer and Causee expressed in the contexts.

Background and objective: Prostate multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) shows high sensitivity for International Society of Urological Pathology grade group (GG) ≥2 cancers. Many artificial intelligence algorithms have shown promising results in diagnosing clinically significant prostate cancer on MRI. To assess a region-of-interest-based machine-learning algorithm aimed at characterising GG ≥2 prostate cancer on multiparametric MRI. Methods: The lesions targeted at biopsy in the MRI-FIRST dataset were retrospectively delineated and assessed using a previously developed algorithm. The Prostate Imaging-Reporting and Data System version 2 (PI-RADSv2) score assigned prospectively before biopsy and the algorithm score calculated retrospectively in the regions of interest were compared for diagnosing GG ≥2 cancer, using the areas under the curve (AUCs), and sensitivities and specificities calculated with predefined thresholds (PIRADSv2 scores ≥3 and ≥4; algorithm scores yielding 90% sensitivity in the training database). Ten predefined biopsy strategies were assessed retrospectively. Key findings and limitations: After excluding 19 patients, we analysed 232 patients imaged on 16 different scanners; 85 had GG ≥2 cancer at biopsy. At patient level, AUCs of the algorithm and PI-RADSv2 were 77% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 70-82) and 80% (CI: 74-85; p = 0.36), respectively. The algorithm's sensitivity and specificity were 86% (CI: 76-93) and 65% (CI: 54-73), respectively. PI-RADSv2 sensitivities and specificities were 95% (CI: 89-100) and 38% (CI: 26-47), and 89% (CI: 79-96) and 47% (CI: 35-57) for thresholds of ≥3 and ≥4, respectively. Using the PI-RADSv2 score to trigger a biopsy would have avoided 26-34% of biopsies while missing 5-11% of GG ≥2 cancers. Combining prostate-specific antigen density, the PI-RADSv2 and algorithm's scores would have avoided 44-47% of biopsies while missing 6-9% of GG ≥2 cancers. Limitations include the retrospective nature of the study and a lack of PI-RADS version 2.1 assessment. Conclusions and clinical implications: The algorithm provided robust results in the multicentre multiscanner MRI-FIRST database and could help select patients for biopsy. Patient summary: An artificial intelligence-based algorithm aimed at diagnosing aggressive cancers on prostate magnetic resonance imaging showed results similar to expert human assessment in a prospectively acquired multicentre test database.

The rapidly growing body of study abroad (SA) research suggests that short and long-term immersion in a foreign language is beneficial for second language (L2) development, particularly oral proficiency skills (Marijuan & Sanz, 2018; Serrano et al., 2012). This study aims to contribute to SA research by investigating the longitudinal development of Spanish L2 learners' fluency, accuracy, and complexity after a semester studying abroad in Spain, and how initial proficiency may modulate changes over time. More recently, SA research presented at the Residence Abroad and Language Learning: Where Are We Now? Conference (October, 2023) points to individual differences as the determining factor that can explain the variable outcomes different L2 learners exhibit as the result of studying abroad. With this in mind, our study expands on previous SA research by investigating how initial Spanish proficiency and total number of L2 hours while abroad may play a role in L2 oral proficiency outcomes at an individual and group level. A total of 15 Spanish L2 learners took part in a 4-month long semester abroad program in Spain. Learners' speech was elicited using the ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) method, which was conducted at the beginning and at the end of the semester. Proficiency was assessed with a standardized elicited imitation task (EIT), and fluency, accuracy, and complexity data was coded using the audio annotation software EXMARaLDA (Schmidt, 2012). The transcription protocol we used was based on MacWhinney (2000)’s CHAT conventions. Fluency was measured through computing the average duration of filled and silent pauses. To track changes in accuracy, the number of morphological, lexical, and syntactical errors per utterance was calculated. Preliminary results from 5 participants revealed that the overall fluency of the participants increased, as seen through a decrease in the average duration of pauses (both filled and silent) from session 1 to session 2, however this difference did not reach significance (t = 1.56, p = 0.19). As a group, participants' number of errors (accuracy) also decreased from session 1 to session 2, but this differed greatly at the individual level with one participant showing the opposite pattern. Initial proficiency did not seem to predict oral development over time, despite previous research pointing to this variable as a strong predictor within a SA context (Zalbidea et al., 2020). Complexity analyses are in progress and are being measured through the mean length of utterance (MLU) and the ratio of simple and complex utterances.

Adaptation of behavior to a changing environment requires the brain to change the probability of selecting actions based on their reward or punishment. The present study proposes a simple neural mechanism of gain modulation that makes possible rapid changes in the probability of selecting actions after different levels of negative feedback. The effects of gain modulation on action selection are studied in a network of neuronal populations of excitatory neurons regulated by inhibition. Results show that neuronal gain can embed memories of past experiences without modification of synaptic efficacies, in complement to synaptic plasticity.
