Currently, the demand by consumption of agricultural products may be predicted quantitatively; moreover, the variation of harvest and production by the change of a farm s cultivated area, weather change, disease, insect damage, etc. is a challenge that has led to improper control of the supply and demand of agricultural products. Advancements in IoT and wireless sensor networks in precision agriculture and the cloud computing technology needed to deploy them can be used to address and solve these …

In this book Archibald describes two studies conducted within a parametric framework in the area of second language acquisition. The studies are designed to investigate the acquisition of English stress patterns (via both production and perception tasks) by adult speakers of Polish and Hungarian. Archibald argues that interlanguage grammars can be understood as a mix of L1 transfer and the effects of Universal Grammar. Metrical parameters related to such things as quantity--sensitivity, extrametricality, …
