Abstract: L2 learners’ processing of collocations and free combinations was investigated employing a lexical decision task. The study evaluated whether a division into these two categories of word combinations has psychological validity. The results of the study are discussed in the light of descriptive models of word combinations.

Abstract: Information on the rankings and information on the approval of candidates in an election, though related, are fundamentally different—one cannot be derived from the other. Both kinds of information are important in the determination of social choices. We propose a way of combining them in two hybrid voting systems, preference approval voting (PAV) and fallback voting (FV), that satisfy several desirable properties, including monotonicity. Both systems may give different winners from standard ranking and nonranking voting systems. PAV, especially, encourages candidates to take coherent majoritarian positions, but it is more information-demanding than FV. PAV and FV are manipulable through voters’ contracting or expanding their approval sets, but a 3-candidate dynamic poll model suggests that Condorcet winners, and candidates ranked first or second by the most voters if there is no Condorcet winner, will be favored, though not necessarily in equilibrium.

Abstract: This paper describes the theoretical perspectives on race, class and gender of Elizabeth Esterchild and Patricia Hill Collins. Both agree that race, class and gender intersect as bases for unequal treatment. Hill Collins concludes that Black women have special insights because in academia, as elsewhere they are often the outsiders within. She describes how self-valuation and self-definition in Black culture mitigate the debilitating affects of oppression. Esterchild provides a general model of stratification which encompasses several different types of inequality. We conclude that these two sets of ideas are highly compatible and that combining them leads to major advances in our understanding.

Abstract: Objectives. This study hypothesized that chronic stressors associated with an everyday social role (work) would interact with a traumatic macrostressor (9/11/01) in predicting mental health. Methods. Mail surveys were returned at wave 3 of a workplace cohort study, in some cases before and in others after 9/ll/01. Questionnaires assessed decision latitude, sexual harassment, generalized workplace abuse, distress and drinking. Regression analyses addressed the main effect of 9/11 and interactions between 9/11 and work stressors, controlling for baseline mental health.

Results. The main effect of 9/11 on elevated drinking was significant for women but not men. For women, work stressors significantly interacted with experiencing 9/ll for drinking and anxiety outcomes.

Conclusions. Women experiencing chronic work stressors were most vulnerable to elevated distress and drinking after 9/11.

Abstract: This paper deals with sex differences in negotiations. Many claims have been made about males outperforming females in negotiations. However, much of this research does not account for the contextual factors involved. In the present study, we replicate prior effects on the ‘sex gap’ in negotiations and demonstrate that by making certain communication aspects more or less salient sex differences can be bridged. Our findings suggest that making visual information a more important aspect of the negotiation process enables females to attain a shared understanding and thereby increased performance. Whereas such a process was observed in males irrespective of the amount of visual information available, understanding among female dyads benefited significantly from the visual information available. The increased understanding was also accompanied by changes in interpersonal affections. Our results suggest that both males and females follow different routes towards their outcomes: whereas males seem to perform slightly better in general, the amount of visual information available informs females about the other person involved, thereby fostering a shared understanding, which in turn leads to better negotiation outcomes. In our discussion, we propose a possible neurobiological basis for these sex differences, arguing that females process (affective) visual information differently than males do and follow different routes in attaining successful negotiations.
