Language mixing within verbs and nouns in American Norwegian

This paper presents case-studies of language mixing within verbs and nouns in the heritage language American Norwegian, which refers to varieties spoken by Norwegian immigrants to the US and their descendants. The paper builds on data from the newly established Corpus of American Norwegian Speech and argues in favor of an exoskeletal approach to language mixing. This approach distinguishes between abstract syntactic feature bundles and the morphophonological realization of these bundles, much like in late insertion approaches to morphology. A main goal of the paper is to show how the word-internal mixing patterns observed in American Norwegian can be analyzed in a model of grammar employing an exoskeletal approach with late-insertion.

Fábregas, Antonio; Marín, Rafael (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)Most of the literature devoted to the study of deverbal nominalizations concentrates on the complex event reading (La concentración de partículas tiene lugar a temperatura ambiente, ‘The concentration of particles takes place at room temperature’) and the object reading (El paciente tenía concentraciones de calcio en el hombro, ‘The patient had calcium concentrations in the shoulder’), while ...
Svenonius, Peter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2003)All Germanic languages make extensive use of verb-particle combinations (known as separable-prefix verbs in the OV languages). I show some basic differences here distinguishing the Scandinavian type from the OV West Germanic languages, with English superficially patterning with Scandinavian but actually manifesting a distinct type. Specifically, I argue that the P projection is split into p and P ...
Gjervold, Jonas Hinrichsen (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-05-28)The prefixation of base imperfective verbs to create semantically identical perfective partner verbs is a central feature of the Russian verb. There are sixteen such perfectivizing prefixes and prefix variation is when a single unprefixed imperfective combines with more than one of these to form multiple aspectual partners. This fact has been used to dispel a long held belief that perfectivizing ...
