Most widely held works by William A Foley
Functional syntax and universal grammar by William A Foley( Book )

19 editions published between 1984 and 2009 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The key argument of this book, originally published in 1984, is that when human beings communicate with each other by means of a natural language they typically do not do so in simple sentences but rather in connected discourse - complex expressions made up of a number of clauses linked together in various ways. A necessary precondition for intelligible discourse is the speaker's ability to signal the temporal relations between the events that are being discussed and to refer to the participants in those events in such a way that it is clear who is being talked about. A great deal of the grammatical machinery in a language is devoted to this task, and Functional Syntax and Universal Grammar explores how different grammatical systems accomplish it. --From publisher's description

Biosynthesis of oxygenated monoterpenes in Thyme, Melaleuca, and Eucalyptus species by Sandra Krause( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essential oils of Thymus, Melaleuca, and Eucalyptus species are natural resources for a wide range of pharmaceutical valued monoterpenes. The present study is about the stereospecific and regiospecific mechanisms of the enzymes involved in the formation of oxygenated, cyclic monoterpenes in these species. Therefore, genes encoding for the respective enzymes were isolated, heterologously expressed, and characterized. From Thymus vulgaris two sabinene hydrate synthases were isolated which formed the opposite enantiomers of their chiral monoterpene products. Only one amino acid residue in the active site of both enzymes determined most of the stereospecificity. For the formation of thymol and carvacrol, a pathway from [gamma]-terpinene catalyzed by the combined activity of a cytochrome P450 enzyme and a dehydrogenase was postulated. From Melaleuca and Eucalyptus species, putative monoterpene synthases and cytochrome P450 enzymes could be isolated

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An absolutely harrowing first-person account of the 94th Infantry Division's bold campaign to break through Hitler's "impregnable" Siegfried line at the end of World War II Eighteen-year-old William Foley was afraid the war would be over before he got there, but the rifleman was sent straight to the front lines, arriving January 25, 1945'just in time to join the 94th Infantry Division poised at Hitler's legendary West Wall. By the time Foley finally managed to grab a few hours sleep three nights later, he'd already fought in a bloody attack that left sixty percent of his battalion dead or wounded. That was just the beginning of one of the toughest, bloodiest challenges the 94th would ever face: breaking through the Siegfried Line. Now, in Visions from a Foxhole, Foley recaptures that desperate, nerve-shattering struggle in all its horror and heroism.
