  Wu (linguistics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wu (吳方言 pinyin wú fāng yán; 吳語 pinyin wú yǔ lumazi wu niu(nyu)) is one of the major divisions of the Chinese language.
The Northern Wu dialects are not mutually intelligible with the Southern Wu dialects.
Wu dialects are notable among Chinese languages in having kept voiced plosives and fricatives from Middle Chinese, such as /b/, /d/, /g/, /z/, /v/, etc. The only other major group to have done this is Xiang.

Wu Chien Chuan’s early students, Wu Tunan and Chuan Zee Yee, carried on an alternate branch in Beijing, though it is unclear how different this branch was from the Northern Wu.
Wu Kung Yee is famous for answering the challenge of a white crane stylist, Master Chen, and defeating him.
The idea that Wu style is specialized from yielding and softly diverting and Yang style for pressing and discharging comes from the students of the two masters, and is a misconception.

 Chinese language - Psychology Central   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
From a purely descriptive point of view, "languages" and "dialects" are simply arbitrary groups of similar idiolects, and the distinction is irrelevant to linguists who are only concerned with describing regional speeches scientifically.
Many Wu, Min, Hakka, and Cantonese speakers consider their own varieties as separate spoken languages, but the Han Chinese race as one entity.
Most linguists classify all of the variations of Chinese as part of the Sino-Tibetan language family and believe that there was an original language, called Proto-Sino-Tibetan, analogous to Proto-Indo-European, from which the Sinitic and Tibeto-Burman languages descended.

For the past four years, a group of professors and scholars from a range of disciplines (linguistics, rhetoric and media studies, psychology, computer science, foreign language studies, English as a Second Language) have met each semester to discuss our common interest in language and the human experience.
In particular, the course focuses on linguistic questions related to the following: 1) gender; 2) power; 3) ethnic, racial, and national identifies; 4) literacy; 5) poetic, verbal performance; and 6) intercultural communication.
It is an interdisciplinary field at the interface of psychology, linguistics, computer science, anthropology, philosophy, and neuroscience.

Experimental results on the MSR Paraphrase Corpus show that, even in the absence of any thesaurus to accommodate lexical variation between the paraphrases, an uninterpolated average precision of at least 76% is obtainable from the Bracketing ITG's structure matching bias alone.
As with the pure statistical translation model described by Wu (1996) (in which a bracketing transduction grammar models the channel), alternative hypotheses compete probabilistically, exhaustive search of the translation hypothesis space can be performed in polynomial time, and robustness heuristics arise naturally from a language-independent inversion-transduction model.
UC was undertaken because the task was thought to be both a fertile domain for Artificial Intelligence research and a useful application of AI work in planning, reasoning, natural language processing, and knowledge representation.

 ALS98 PAPERS - Alan Dench   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Given these frequencies, it is easy to imagine that the patterns found on a-stems might serve as the basis for a levelling of the allomorphy.
However, while this line of argument might be taken to explain the patterns of allomorphy for 'Belonging', 'Side' and 'Allative' suffixes, and can also explain the consistent wu genitive on vowel-final stems, it does not account for the forms of the accusative.
Warriyangka and Tharrkari show further elaboration of this pattern: on i-stems, the suffix-initial glide is y rather than w, while on u-stems the suffix is realised as lengthening of the stem-final vowel.
