Psycholinguistics of under-studied languages: the case of subliminal speech priming in Maltese

Early and automatic processing of linguistic stimuli is fairly well-studied for resource-heavy languages such as English (cf. work on visual masked priming by Forster and Davis 1984, Forster et al. 2003, among many others), whereas psycholinguistic studies on languages with few resources are much rarer. In this talk, I first describe the creation of the first online language corpus of Maltese, a Semitic languages for which few electronic resources exist. Next, I discuss the application of the corpus to a psycholinguistic question and investigate the psycholinguistic reality of the consonantal root, a building block of Semitic languages. This investigation is carried out using the relatively novel subliminal speech priming technique.

Setting up WFU VPN on OS X 10.6 & iOS

Now with Snow Leopard (10.6) you can easily connect to the WFU VPN without having to install the Cisco VPN software. Here are the steps:

1) Download/Open the WFU VPN profile for Mac.

2) Open “System Preferences” from the Apple menue, select “Network” and click the “+” to add a new connection.

3) Select “VPN (Cisco IPSec)

4) Enter the VPN IP: and your WFU username.

5) Then open the “Authentication Settings…” menu. We will now add the “Shared Secret” and “Group Name” from the .pcf file (WFU VPN file from step (1)) to this dialogue box.

6) First, copy and paste the information following “GroupName=” in the “Group Name” field. Second, copy the information (all of it) directly following “enc_GroupPwd=” and paste it in the cisco vpnclient password decoder here. Use the resulting decoded password to paste into the “Shared Password” field back on your “Authentication Settings…” menu.

7) Click OK, and then “Apply” the settings on the “Network” preference pane.

8) To make the VPN easy to get to, check the box “Show VPN status in the menu bar”.

To start up the VPN client select just click on the VPN icon in the menu bar and select the connection you just made –it will ask for your WFU credentials.

That’s it.

For iOS devices

1) On your iOS device download the iOS VPN installer.

2) Follow the instructions.

Set up ROM Canon iR5055/iR5065 printer for Mac

Here are some brief instructions on how to set up the Canon iR5055/iR5065 printer in Greene 516 for a Mac.

1. Download the latest PS driver here: Canon driver list (Europe)

2. Install the drivers using the installer contained in the .zip file.

3. Open “Print & Fax” pane in the System Preferences.

4. Add printer

5. Choose IP > LPD and add IP address: and name the printer

7. Select print driver: iR5055/iR5065 PS (UK)

8. Add, select Job Accounting

Now you can print.

A couple more tweaks:

1. Make the ROM printer the default printer on your system.
Go to the Print & Fax preference pane and right click (control+click) on the ROM printer, and select “Set Default Printer”.

2. Avoid having to enter the Department ID for each print job.
Open a text document in TextEdit, type some random text and then start to send it to the printer (command+p). The print dialog box will appear.

Select the ROM printer.

Then select “SpecialFeatures” from the lowest dropdown menu.

Then click on “Job Accounting”, add the ID 505033 and deselect “Confirm ID/Password when Printing” checkbox. (You can verify the ID to make sure the ID is valid)

You can then select “Save as…” under configuration “Presets”.

Give it a name like “No password” or something meaningful. If you ever want to go back to the default configuration you can toggle between the default preset “Standard” and any other presets you set up … like the following …

3. Print double-sided and stapled by default.
Now, go to “Finishing” instead of “SpecialFeatures” in the dropdown menu. Select “Duplex”, “Long Edge (left) and check the “Staple” checkbox. Save this as a preset (or add to the previous preset).

You can create as many presets as you want. I’ve combined these features into one. Note: Presets are associated with specific printers, so you have to set the up for each device you have listed in your “Print & Fax” preference pane.

Good luck!
