    The Semantic-Pragmatic Analysis of Persian Modal Verbs Based on Papafragou's Model.Zohreh Vahedi & Jalal Rahimian - 2010 - Lodz Papers in Pragmatics 6 (1):67-116.
    The Semantic-Pragmatic Analysis of Persian Modal Verbs Based on Papafragou's Model This paper aims at analyzing the semantics and pragmatics of Persian modal verbs based on Papafragou's relevance-theoretic model. Persian modals are defined in terms of logical relations and propositional domains. According to the findings of the research, two of the three modals, namely, šodan and tavân express the logical relation of compatibility with respect to different propositional domains: the three forms mišavad, mišod and mišode are unspecified with respect to (...)

  3. Automatic Detection of Focal Cortical Dysplasia Type II in MRI: Is the Application of Surface-Based Morphometry and Machine Learning Promising?Zohreh Ganji, Mohsen Aghaee Hakak, Seyed Amir Zamanpour & Hoda Zare - 2021 - Frontiers in Human Neuroscience 15.
    Background and ObjectivesFocal cortical dysplasia is a type of malformations of cortical development and one of the leading causes of drug-resistant epilepsy. Postoperative results improve the diagnosis of lesions on structural MRIs. Advances in quantitative algorithms have increased the identification of FCD lesions. However, due to significant differences in size, shape, and location of the lesion in different patients and a big deal of time for the objective diagnosis of lesion as well as the dependence of individual interpretation, sensitive approaches (...)

    ZPD-Based Mediation of L2 Learners’ Comprehension of Implicatures: An Educational Praxis Framework.Zohreh Eslami, Aliakbar Jafarpour, Farshad Naseri & Azizullah Mirzaei - 2021 - Lodz Papers in Pragmatics 17 (1-2):127-152.
    Conversational implicatures are implied by the speaker in context rather than being linguistically encoded, and learners’ inability to infer the intended meaning, if not remedied through instruction, leads to communication breakdowns. Given this premise, the current study aimed to examine effects of classroom praxis-based instruction adjusted to EFL learners’ Zone of Proximal Development on their comprehension of CIMs. Participants were 36 Iranian high school students in 2 classrooms, assigned to experimental and comparison groups. A 20-item CIM test was administered at (...)

    Mapping Character Types Onto Space: The Urban-Rural Distinction in Early Statistical Writings.Zohreh Bayatrizi - 2011 - History of the Human Sciences 24 (2):28-47.
    This article investigates the construction of urban/rural binary distinctions in 18th - and 19th-century social scientific literature, and in particular in the writings of the statistical societies in England. The 18th-century writers were primarily concerned with the spread of luxury, vice and effeminacy among the upper social strata in large cities. Later on, statisticians began to focus on moral hazards among the urban working poor. These writings are significant in several respects: they contributed to the spatial mapping of moral character, (...)

    From Marx to Giddens Via Weber and Habermas: The Politics of Social Thought in Iran.Zohreh Bayatrizi - 2016 - European Journal of Social Theory 19 (4):521-537.
    This article investigates the political role of social theories in contemporary Iran. It focuses, specifically, on how the 1979 Revolution marks a passage in Iranian political and social thought from political radicalism informed by Marxism to reformist liberalism inspired by local readings of Weber, Habermas, and Giddens. By investigating the writings of public intellectuals and political activists involved in Iran’s reform movement, the article traces their transformation from leftist revolutionary radicals to liberal proponents of free market, democracy, and religious pluralism.

    Rater Variation in Pragmatic Assessment: The Impact of the Linguistic Background on Peer-Assessment and Self-Assessment.Ali Derakhshan, Zohreh R. Eslami & Sunni L. Sonnenburg-Winkler - 2020 - Lodz Papers in Pragmatics 16 (1):67-85.
    The present study investigates variability among raters from different linguistic backgrounds, who evaluated the pragmatic performance of English language learners with varying native languages by using both self- and peer-assessments. To this end, written discourse completion task samples of requesting speech acts from 10 participants were collected. Thereafter, the participants were asked to assess their peers’ WDCTs before assessing their own samples using the same rating scale. The raters were further asked to provide an explanation for their rating decisions. Findings (...)

  28. Overall Efficiency of Four-Stage Structure with Undesirable Outputs: A New SBM Network DEA Model.Nasim Roudabr, Seyyed Esmaeil Najafi, Zohreh Moghaddas & Farzad Movahedi Sobhani - 2022 - Complexity 2022:1-16.
    Benchmarking is the major reason for the widespread use of DEA models for efficiency analysis. Determining the closest targets for DMUs, DEA models play a key role in benchmarking their best performance. In fact, these models help develop certain performance enhancement plans that need fewer attempts made by DMUs. Therefore, this study proposes a novel method based on the network DEA to determine the most appropriate target for every stage in addition to benchmarking the DMUs. The proposed model differs from (...)
