This booklet proposes that the 2 “independent” stipulations on argumenthood, particularly, case and referentiality, are strongly correlated and feature to be linked to one another in syntax as syntactic gains. It indicates that languages express version within the means this organization is carried out of their syntax, which provides an evidence for the diversities saw of their word constitution when it comes to (non-)configurationality.

Println("small"); } } } The IfEx2 program adds a second if/then structure. If myInt is greater than two, it prints out big; if it is smaller than or equal to two, it prints out small. This can be simplified by using an else-block. The schematic form is: if (if-clause) { any number of statements } else { any number of statements } I will refer to the set of statements after the else as the else-block. println("small"); } } } This program prints out "big" if the number is greater than two, and "small" in all other cases; that is, when the number is less than or equal to two.

Then it uses a for structure to iterate through the array, printing each name. Finally, the for-loop should have only one statement in it. Write a program that exemplifies putting an if/then structure inside a while structure. How would you find out how many iterations does the loop in WhileEx5 go through to reach 2,000 milliseconds? Alter the code slightly to collect this information. Notes 1 2 3 4 Remember from chapter 2 how to create a program like this one, named VblTest1. java. I include it for completeness, and will avoid it almost totally in subsequent chapters.

For some reason, you think the choice of names might affect what people think the final sentence means. To this end, you have some number of names, say seven, and some number of verbs, say three, and you want to create all possible combinations to test your theory. 4 This is actually quite easy to do in the Java programming language. First, we define two String arrays, one to contain the names, and the other to contain the verbs. We then use nested for loops to combine every possible combination in the following template: “NAME and NAME VERB NAME”.
