Concluding remarks This paper has addressed a variety of “quirky” agreement phenomena in English, all with an eye towards establishing the central hypothesis that weak and null pro- nouns are LF “inert”, hence cannot undergo LF movement. I analysed agreement attraction (as in (8b)) in terms of LF movement (of the Quantifier Raising type), correctly ensuring that overt weak pronouns cannot trigger it (cf. (10)), and taking the failure of attraction with the poor (13b) and “pluringulars” (14b) to be evi- dence for pronominally headed structures of these constructions (as in (12b0 ) and (19)). Along the way, I presented some additional empirical arguments in favour of a pronominally headed approach to the poor and to “pluringulars”. In the sec- ond part of the paper, which focused on existential there sentences, Elbourne’s (1999) observation that “pluringulars” do not occur as the associate of there in there existentials was shown to vindicate the pro-based analysis of committee-type noun phrases, and the fact that attraction also fails in there sentences was brought up as evidence against an “expletive replacement” type LF-movement analysis of there existentials. All in all, the evidence clearly suggests that weak and null pro- nouns are LF invisible, and that English has null pronouns in at least two types of complex noun phrases.22 Three questions remain. The first is of a comparative-linguistic nature – why is it that plural-agreeing committee-type noun phrases are possible in British En- glish, but rare (if not non-existent) elsewhere? The second question concerns the internal structure of (19), and asks what the relationship between the pronoun and the committee-DP is. And the third is about the licensing of the null pronominal head of (12b0 ) and (19). I have no particular insights to offer with regard to the first question – nor do I think that any other extant approach (such as Elbourne’s 1999) does any better on this score. As for the internal structure of (19), accounts which would have the null pronoun sit in the D-head of a simplex DP (cf. Postal’s 1966 approach to us linguists) would face the difficult question of how the pronoun can be compatible with a lexical definite determiner or (as in (21a) with plural agreement) a demon- strative.23 With such accounts discarded, two options remain: (19) instantiates either (i) an apposition type structure or (ii) a clitic doubling configuration. From theoretical discussions of clitic doubling (cf., e.g., Sportiche ...
Concluding. Comments The ultimate responsibility for the decision on the appropriate application of generally accepted accounting principles for an actual transaction rests with the preparers of financial statements, who should consult with their continuing accountants. Our judgment on the appropriate application of generally accepted accounting principles for the described proposed transaction is based solely on the facts provided to us as described above; should these facts and circumstances differ, our conclusions may change.

Concluding comments We have developed a model of the reciprocal arrangements that enable Kenyan cattle herders to cope with weather fluctuations across their group ranches. The key mechanism is repeated interaction - the short term gains from reneging on your promise to take in a less-fortunate partner group’s cattle must be weighed against the long term costs from collapse of the mutual insurance arrangement. We made many special assumptions to simplify or ignore other aspects of the situation and to produce a tractable model. Even this extremely simple model yields some insights. Some key parameters can be calibrated by comparing the results with observations. Then it appears that the degree of patience required for successful self-sustaining reciprocity is right in the range of the rates of time discounting that the herders face. Therefore we should expect to see success in some instances and not others. In the latter cases the groups may create supplementary supporting mechanisms such as intermarriage to improve the prospects of cooperation, or they may modify the scheme to reduce the temptation to renege. We find that the optimal modification is to give the host group a larger share of the milk produced by the transferred cattle, and argued that this may happen naturally because of the difficulty of transporting milk back for consumption by the owner group. Thus the model appears to be a promising start, but many features must be added for better and deeper understanding. These are among our plans for future work. Dynamics Successive periods in our simple model are linked only by the repeated game. In reality there are many other links. The quantity of cattle is not a matter of totally independent choice each period, but evolves as a state variable. New purchases and births add to the stock, and sales and deaths reduce the stock. The births and deaths can be functions of the quantity and quality of land in relation to the size of the herd, and also the weather outcome. The quality of land is also a state variable, increased by better maintenance effort and degraded by grazing, which depends on the size of the herd that grazes on the land. Weather can also be correlated over time. These modifications will turn our repeated game into a dynamic game, which is far harder to analyze. Unequal sizes We assumed the two groups to be identical (except of course in the actual real- izations of weather outcomes in any one period), and found symmetric solutions. In reality, ...
Concluding remarks We performed ultrasonic experiments in a concentrated suspension of non-Brownian particles to investigate how the shear-induced anisotropic microstructure affects the ultrasonic backscattering measurements (i.e., the BSC and the structure factor). For all the studied volume fractions, the measured structure factor has been shown to be anisotropic with axial symmetry in the orthogonal direction of the angular position of the depleted area of the pair correlation function. The experimental structure factors are in good agreement with the structure factors determined from Stokesian dynamics numeri- cal simulations. Therefore, sheared concentrated suspensions cannot be modeled as isotropic media since shear-induced anisotropic microstructure greatly affect the frequency depen- dence and amplitude of BSC and structure factor. If the parameterization of the BSC is used to estimate the local scat- terer size and/or volume fraction, the assumption of isotropic media would obviously create a bias against the parameter estimation. These results are of major interest in the field of ultrasonic characterization of opaque suspensions, such as blood or industrial materials (food, cosmetics), for which the measures are performed under shear conditions.

Concluding. Comments This brief discussion paper illustrates the integrated methodology to facilitate phased refurbishment by re- fitting infill based on service level agreement (SLA). The value of infill base phased refurbishment is dependent on the degree of cooperation with agreed visions of the district by stakeholders and the degree of customization to each user and customer. So the methodology to get the agreement without misunderstanding between customer and supplier is essential to establish new contract model The new business model for infill base phased refurbishment illustrated in this paper still has the legal incompleteness in terms of judgment on independence of infill from skeleton. To exclude the legal incompleteness, special law termed as Infill Act need to be drafted at the Parliament. However, for generating the initiatives and appeal for new Act, there is a need to demonstrate real examples by which general public understand the potential benefit by separation of infill from skeleton.

Concluding remarks At this point, we can look back and review the main aspects of the present proposal. The basic insight is that two central aspects of clausal syntax - temporal structure and person agreement - can be related in a non-trivial way within a general theory of logophoricity. I have proposed a view of logophoricity based on the novel notion of logophoric centre. The LC is a speech or mental event that is intrinsically endowed with at least one participant and with temporal coordinates. There are two main types of logophoric centre. The external LC corresponds to the external speech event (subsuming the reichenbachian S point). All other speech or mental events may constitute internal logophoric centres. These can be licensed contextually on a semantic/pragmatic basis, or alternatively, they can enter an anaphoric relation with a syntactically expressed speech or mental event. On the basis of the notion of logophoric centre, we have arrived at a new conception of finiteness. This syntactic feature encodes the logophoric orientation of the clause. More specifically:
Concluding comments It is to be noted that Xxxxx and Xxxx entered into the mediation process voluntarily, enthusiastically and willingly and have reached an agreement they believe is workable and will allow them both to move on with their own lives and secure appropriate accommodation for them to reside in and the children. It was clear throughout the process that they are both very caring and loving parents and have sought to keep focused upon the issues of importance, in particular the children and indeed each other’s needs. I wish them well for the future and should they require any further assistance with mediation, it would be my pleasure to work with them. MEDIATOR Mediator
