As the numbers suggest, Web 1.0 is used to refer to the first stage in the development of the web, whereas Web 2.0 (a term coined in 1999 ) denotes a later stage, which became prominent in the mid-2000s. At the heart of the comparison between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 is a perceived shift with respect to the web’s interactivity. Web 1.0 is seen as a read-only, comparatively...

...first hundred words, they may over-extend up to 40% of them. Under-extensions and overlaps are harder to document; however, they may be even more pervasive in children's meanings, during a longer period, than over-extensions. The latter become rare by the age of 2;0 (i.e. 2 years, 0 months) to 2;6. Most observations about early meanings have come from diary studies of language production; however, researchers have also examined some sources of children's hypotheses about word-meanings by looking systematically at how children understand words, as well as...

...is related to factors like ‘preceding sound segment is a vowel’, ‘subject type is a Full NP’, ‘speaker is female’, or ‘style is formal’, using data on rule applications in various environments. These weightings range between 0 and 1. The closer these numbers are to 1, the more highly favoring the effect is; the closer they are to 0, the more disfavoring the effect is. For example, in the variation between [ŋ] and [n], a factor weight of .75 for [ŋ] would indicate that there is a very strong probability for [ŋ] in the environment in question (perhaps a...

...of bars or superscripts (e.g., X 0 , X 1 , X 2 , X 3 …). To date, there is no consensus as to the exact number of intermediate levels. Every phrase has a head and every head of the next level of division belongs to the same lexical or functional category, a fact that is captured by the following general rule: X n → … X n-1 …. Phrases that cannot be further expanded are called maximal projections (X max , e.g., noun phrase). Phrases can contain a specifier (one level below X max ), complements (one level above X 0 ). X 0 -elements are lexical categories...

SNSs became popular in the 2000s, particularly from the latter half onwards, and are central to current definitions of the worldwide web as social and participatory ( see web 2.0 ). They are hence typically classified as ‘social media’. Yet aside from this defining feature, there is much variation among SNS networks.
