This paper is organized as follows: section two sets out the theoretical and empirical background related to the role that objects and voice play in the construction of passive structures and, linked to this, how passives are connected to the ditransitive construction.
The complement Mary takes the form of a prepositional phrase (PP) and occupies an adjunct position, similar to by-phrases in passives. Mary is assigned dative case by the preposition to, satisfying the case filter (Aoun and Li 1989; Koizumi 1994; Oehrle 1976).
In corpus studies of the meanings of different passives
(Collins 1996; Carter and McCarthy 1999), there is a consensus that central get-passives more often express emotive or interpersonal meanings, and either the speaker's (approving or disapproving) attitude towards the events described, or a focus on the subject-referent's situation; be-passives, on the other hand, are usually more neutral in meaning (Stubbs 2001: 212; Fryd 2008: 13-14).
Inductance and EMI noise suppression passives
also factor into smart meter designs.
One such technology that emerged on the scene more than a decade ago, but never quite got its legs, is embedded passives
. Not that there wasn't interest - there was (and is).
German and Japanese passives
are similar in terms of distribution with regard to transitivity.
IF YOU ARE having difficulties meeting some of the high-speed or miniaturization requirements in your layouts using traditional components, then perhaps it's time to look at embedded passives
The term passives
usually refers to resistors, capacitors and inductors but can also include thermistors, varistors, transformers, temperature sensors and almost any non-switching analog device.
The goal of this paper is to defend the complementation approach to Chinese passives
and discuss its consequences.
Last but not least, embedded technology permits faster clock speeds because they can be placed in a three-dimensional location--the passive
device can be placed directly under the chipset; this makes for smaller trace lengths, which enables higher frequency signals to be processed.
US demand for passive
electronic components is forecast to advance nearly 4 percent per annum to $21.4 billion in 2005.
Industrial ink jet printers with resolution of 360 dpi (more than enough for passive
displays) and three-inch print heads can deposit an LEP layer at 22 inches per second.
