Incorporated in 1991, ECBT manufactures rail coach components, including bogie frames, luggage racks, and other components.
ECBT's management also owns two group companies; Kuteer Equipments Pvt Ltd, which is engaged in fabrication of railway coaches, and Engineers and Consultants Pvt Ltd, which manufactures tractor components exclusively for Hindustan Machine Tools Ltd.
ECBT reported a profit after tax (PAT) of Rs.15 million on net sales of Rs.517 million for 2009-10, against a PAT of Rs.21 million on net sales of Rs.580 million for 2008-09.
Thus, the ECBT is strictly set within the problem-solving framework.
Contrary to what ECBT claims about the mechanisms underlying proverb comprehension, Gibbs, Johnson and Colston (1996) forcefully argue against viewing proverb understanding as analogical problem solving.
The ECBT and the CMH represent two widely differing accounts of proverb comprehension.
Turning now to the ECBT, its major weakness seems to be the vagueness of the postulated conceptual base, which participates in the creation of analogical relationship between the proverbial statement and its context in the course of proverb comprehension.
8) Is it better to account for L2 proverb comprehension within the problem solving framework, like the one suggested in the ECBT?
4) Is it possible to account for bilingual subjects' performance within the framework of the ECBT?
