24.964 Topics in Phonology: Phonetic Realization (MIT)
Many details of phonetic realization cannot be predicted from standard phonological representations on a language-independent basis, so phonetic realization must be specified in grammar. In this seminar we will investigate phonetic realization as a component of grammar. The basic questions that we will address are: What is the form of the phonetic realization component? What is its relationship to phonology?
The three-way catalytic converter
This extract is concerned primarily with the chemistry that underpins the operation of the three-way catalytic converter that is placed in the exhaust systems of motor vehicles in order to reduce the emissions of primary pollutants: carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen and volatile organic compounds, including hydrocarbons. Discussion of the various effects of these pollutants and the consequent introduction and refinement of ‘automotive emission regulations’ has not been included, nor is the

This module on population and development is part of the World Bank Group's educational site that addresses sustainable development in the world. An introduction, objectives, activities, and references are provided. Educators can use the activities to help students understand population growth rates.
Poverty in Scotland
The facts and figures on poverty often don’t provide a meaningful picture of the situation. This unit demonstrates the true impact of poverty on the people and places in Scotland through a series of essays that combine the statistics with stories of people who work in the field and those who live in poverty.

School activities: Evolutionary tree of mammals
This introduction to the evolution of mammals considers Darwin’s observations on mammals, and how he noticed that species fell into natural groups. The unit looks at evidence from fossils and DNA to examine which mammals are most closely related to whales.
