Three days I have slogged, trying to figure out the answer to a very simple question:
How many times do you need to hear a new word accompanied by its referent before you can consistently pick out the referent, given the wordform?

Specifically interested in Gnosticism as an emerging genre in film studies (The Truman Show, The Matrix trilogy, Dark City, Black Swan). I also like dark family dramas and anything by Malick and PTA.
Presenting my poster at our local faculty research conference this Saturday. It's for our state-wide system, so we can all see what everyone's working on. I'm using the same poster I presented at last month's conference, which is handy, even if I did have to have it reprinted (different size restrictions, and it got a bit beat up.) https://marxiv.org/85tf4
