Robot bat garatu eta programatzea ez da erronka makala. Liburu honetan, horretarako beharrezkoak diren ezagutza teoriko eta praktikoak jaso nahi izan ditugu, eta modu ulergarrian eskaini irakurleari. Asmo nagusia, Robotika mugikorraren arloan lehen pausuak eman nahi dituenari bidea erraztea izan da, oinarrizko kontzeptuekin hasi (eragileak, sentsoreak, kontrola…) eta gradualki konplexutasun eta sofistikazio-maila altuko arlo eta aplikazioetara iritsi arte (kontrol-arkitekturak, nabigazioa, mapak…). Beti ere robotaren portaera adimentsu bihurtzen duten gakoak agerian utziz.
- Robotika mugikorraren oinarriak: teoria, ariketak eta programazioa tartekatuz.
- Hasiera-hasieratik robotak eraiki eta programatu:
1) LEGO NXT kaxa robotikoarekin
2) Player/Stage simulagailu ahaltsua erabiliz.
- Aplikazioak: objektuak ekidin, ingurunea aztertu, eremua garbitu, erabakiak hartu, mapak eraiki… eta beste hainbat.
- Kontrol-sistema konplexuak garatzeko estrategiak.
Robotika edo programazioari buruzko aldez aurreko ezagutzarik ez da behar. Esaiozu robotari zer nahi duzun egitea!

The studies in Language Change in Contact Languages showcase the contributions that the study of contact language varieties make to the understanding of phenomena such as relexification, transfer, reanalysis, grammaticalization, prosodic variation and the development of prosodic systems. Four of the studies deal with morphosyntactic issues while the other three address questions of prosody. The studies include data from the Atlantic creoles (Saramaccan, Sranan, Haitian Creole, Jamaican Creole, Trinidadian Creole, Papiamentu), as well as Singapore English. This volume, originally published as special issue of Studies in Language 33:2 (2009), aims to make the work of several language contact experts available to a wider audience. The studies will be of use to any student or scholar interested in different approaches to contact-induced language processes, particularly as they relate to morphosyntax and prosody

The appearance of Uriel Weinreich's Languages in Contact: Findings and Problems (1953) marked a milestone in the study of multilingualism and language contact. Yet until now, few linguists have been aware that its main themes were first laid out in Weinreich’s Columbia University doctoral dissertation of 1951, Research Problems in Bilingualism with Special Reference to Switzerland. Based on the author's fieldwork, it contains a detailed report on language contact in Switzerland in the first half of the 20th century, especially along the French-German linguistic border and between German and Romansh in the canton of Grisons (Graubünden). The present edition reproduces Weinreich's original text in full, with only minor alterations and corrections, as well as the author's fieldwork photographs and many of his hand-drawn diagrams. A new foreword reviews Weinreich's life and legacy, as well as developments in contact linguistics and the Swiss linguistic situation over the past 60 years. With selected comments on noteworthy points and references to more recent literature, this volume will be of interest not only to those working on the languages of Switzerland, or specialists in language contact, but all scholars today whose work builds on the broad and lasting foundations laid over half a century ago by Uriel Weinreich.

This book presents the results of a research on the integration of second generation migrants in Catalonia. Drawing on in-depth biographical interviews, we demonstrate the link between language and social mobility. Language is a particularly important social issue in Catalonia. A bilingual region in northeast Spain, Catalonia has been receiving foreign migration for several decades. Nowadays, some of the children of those migrants are entering the labor market. For many migrant families, providing social mobility for their children was one of their main goals. What effects does bilingualism have on the social trajectories of migrant children? Is Catalan important for social mobility? The book answers these questions focusing on the fate of three migrant communities: Argentineans, Colombians and Moroccans.
