And the discovery of grapheme is one of those stories that makes you feel like you and I could do physics ...
The proponents of the hardwired-newborns view of how we organize recognition tend to point to the inferior temporal gyrus and the fusiform gyrus (also active in grapheme/color synesthesia!), a "small patch of right-brain tissue just behind the ear", as the place that holds the key to our ability to recognize things.
The more common the digit, the more radiant the color in grapheme color synaesthesia
"One of the most common variants is called grapheme-colour synaesthesia," says Dr Simner.
'grapheme', e-acute (which is usually displayed 'é') can be represented either as the single code point
On the other hand, Greek is a language with regular orthography, where phoneme-grapheme correspondence is consistent.
A comparison of English and Greek in relation to their regularity has indicated that English is a language with deep orthography, where phoneme-grapheme correspondence is not consistent.
The Nobel Prize in physics was awarded to scientists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov for "groundbreaking experiments" with grapheme, a new material expected to play a large role in electronics.
Experiments with grapheme, a flake of carbon that is only one atom thick, could lead to the development of new material and "the manufacture of innovative electronics," including faster computers, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said.
Your conspicuous knowledge, longanimity, visceral wisdom and training submit made for a grapheme aggregation with lots of techniques which were leisurely to see and do.
