Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

They didn't need to have information chopped up into sentences. This is because the whole concept of a sentence belongs to a literate world. In speech we use units called clauses (roughly speaking there's one verb to every clause). If you tape yourself having a conversation, you'll find that you're not really using sentences at all. Instead you use strings of loosely connected clauses. Now [Milton] and his contemporaries were trained to keep lots of clauses in their head at one time.
