Analogical Cognition: an Insight into Word MeaningAbstractAnalogical cognition, extensively researched by Dedre Gentner and her colleagues over the past thirty five years, has been described as the core of human cognition, and it characterizes our use of many words. This research provides significant insight into the nature of word meaning, but it has been ignored by linguists and philosophers of language. I discuss some of the implications of the research for our account of word meaning. In particular,...

The genetic architecture prompting the occurrence of such late flowering is poorly understood. To clarify the genetic architecture of late flowering in F1 hybrids from a cross between rice varieties, 'Koshihikari' and 'IR64', we performed...

The aim of the present study was to explore whether plasma folate and vitamin B12...
