    • "Oh bloody hell sir æ åsså tar æ av mæ kappa". En undersøkelse av engelske innslag i rollespill 

      Andersen, Pia Høgmo (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2007-06)
      I de siste femti årene har engelsk befestet sin stilling som globalt språk og rådende lingua franca i store deler av verden. Samtidig har engelsk påvirkning på norsk språk og kultur vært svært stor. Nordmenn møter i dag engelsk språk og kultur på nesten alle områder av hverdagslivet og i samfunnet. Mange vil hevde at dette utgjør en trussel mot norsk språk. Formålet med denne avhandlingen er å bidra ...
    • On the English alternation that/Ø in complement clauses: An historical approach 

      Vilches, Claudio Alberto (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-06-16)
      Abstract Motivated by the fact that the English alternation that/Ø does not yet have a principled account, in spite of more than five decades of research, this thesis will explore the implications of a series of historical linguistic aspects of its development in subordinate structures. Thus, by introducing a new approach to this topic, this study attempts to trace and chart the development of the ...
    • An optimality theoretic analysis of ESL coda acquisition by Vietnamese learners 

      Vu, Hoang Yen Thi (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-11-17)
      This thesis is a case study of Optimality Theory (OT) analysis in English second language (hereafter, ESL) coda acquisition. OT can contribute to account for conflicts of constraint rankings in areas of interlanguage development. In this case study of ESL Vietnamese, OT is applied into the previous studies on coda production to account for rates of production types, asymmetry between onset and coda ...

      Mikalsen, Karl-Erlend (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2011-06-01)
      In this thesis Optimality Theory is described in as non-linguistic terms as possible with the goal of making it possible to compare it to other theories of the mind, especially with regards to GEN, CON and EVAL. GEN is the generator of output candidates, CON are the available constraints and EVAL is a structure that evaluates the constraints based on some criteria. Connectionism, Motivational ...

      Perander, Hauk Andreas (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-11-01)
      This study investigated if any of the reported benefits related to peer assessment in writing could be transferred to oral EFL learning strategies. The study, despite a lack of control groups, sheds light on several aspects which influences peer assessment. The results indicated that the participants benefited from peer modelling and increased self-regulation due to assessing peers, rather than the ...
    • The Phonology and Morphology of Spanish Hypocoristics 

      Sanz Álvarez, Javier (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2015-05-15)
      This study sets out to explain the typological gaps and the asymmetric phonological and morphological behaviors observed in the most common types of Spanish hypocoristics. These type of nicknames are divided in three main categories, left-anchored, stress anchored and reduplicative truncated forms, which can be exemplified by the three more common nicknames of the female name Elena: Ele would be the ...

Undersøkelsen er basert på folketellingene i 1865, 1900 og 1910, og jeg undersøker både kvinnenavn og mannsnavn. De bibelske fornavnene ...
    • Predikoivat funktiot ensimmäisessä kainunkielisessä romaanissa 

      Voronov, Mihail (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2006-09-04)
      Tutkielmani tavoitteena on deskriptio kainun eli kveenin kielen predikoivista funktioista. Työ on tapaustutkimus: kuvaus perustuu toistaiseksi ainoaan laajaan kainun kielellä kirjoitettuun teokseen, porsankilaisen Alf Nilsen-Børsskogin vuonna 2004 ilmestyneeseen romaaniin Kuosuvaaran takana. Osoitan tutkimuksessa, että kainun kielen predikoivat funktiot eli predikatiivi ja predikatiiviadverbiaalit ...
    • Prestigio y afectividad. Estudio sobre las actitudes lingüísticas de las Islas Canarias 

      Saavedra, Julio César Déniz (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-10-30)
      Language attitudes among Spanish speakers in the Canary Islands vary. We can understand the position of the spanish vary of the Canary Islands through parameters such as gender, social class and age.

    • Production of articles and monosyllabic prepositions in early child English : a prosodic account 

      Maksimova, Irina (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2009-06-01)
      Children tend to omit functional categories in early language. The present thesis considers the production of such function words as articles and monosyllabic prepositions in child English. The analysis is conducted within a framework of the prosodic account. The development of early articles has received a lot of attention in the literature, while monosyllabic prepositions have not been discussed ...
    • Psycholinguistic evidence for allomorphy in Russian semelfactives = Психолингвистические данные об алломорфии в русских семельфактивах 

      Makarova, Anastasia (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2009-11-20)
      The Russian language is famous for having verbal Aspects, as Comrie puts it, “different ways of viewing the internal temporal constituency of a situation” (1976: 3). Traditionally, Russian verbs are considered to occur in pairs of Perfective and Imperfective verbs. Apart from the pairs, for many verbs there are other related verbs (Aktionsarten). These verbs are mostly derived from Imperfectives by ...

    • Retroflexion in Norwegian 

      Solhaug, Tor Håvard (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2010-11-15)
      This thesis deals with the class of retroflex segments in Norwegian, their phonological status and their distribution with respect to prosodic categories. There is no general consensus regarding the phonological status of the retroflexes: some phonologists posit them as underlying segments while others take them to be clusters of rhotics and coronals underlyingly. The former view is shown to be ...
    • Russian aspectual prefixes O, OB and OBO : a case study of allomorphy 

      Baydimirova, Anna (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2010-06-14)
      The thesis presents a study of the nontrivial interface of morphology, phonology and semantics found in the distribution of three Russian aspectual prefixes O, OB and OBO. These prefixes can be semantically identical when occur in the forms of the same paradigm (e.g. obo-drat’.INF. vs. ob-deru.1 PERSON.SG.FUT. ‘flay’), but can also carry strikingly different meanings that even yield minimal pairs ...
    • Så du det ikke? Objektsveksling av det med nominale og ikke-nominale antesedenter 

      Johnsen, Thomas (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-10-31)
      Denne masteroppgaven omhandler objektsveksling av den pronominale anaforen det med nominale og ikke-nominale antesedenter. Objektsveksling i fastlandskandinaviske språk går ut på at bestemte trykksvake pronominale objekter veksler på tvers av negasjon og eventuelle adverb i en setning. Dette vil si at objektene flytter til en posisjon til venstre for negasjon/adverb. Den pronominale anaforen det kan ...

    • The semantics of the so-called “empty” prefix вы- in natural perfective verbs in the Russian language 

      Pozolotina, Tatiana Mikhailovna (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2009-06-10)
      The present work investigates the semantics of the Russian prefix вы- in so-called natural perfective verbs. Traditionally it is considered that prefixes of natural perfective verbs do not change the meaning of the base verb and thus do not have lexical meaning, i.e. they are “empty”. The only meaning they are supposed to have is the meaning “to bring an action to the end”, which is claimed to be a ...
    • Språk på flyttefot : en studie av språket til fem svensker bosatt i Norge med drøfting av kodeveksling og akkomodasjon 

      Sandbakk, Liv (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2009-11-20)
      Formålet er å se nærmere på svenskers språk i Norge, og å prøve å forstå ulike former for og ulik grad av tilpassing til norske språkforhold som svensker som har bodd i Norge over tid, gjør bruk av. Problemstillingen er å finne ut i hvilken grad og på hvilken måte et lite utvalg svenske innflyttere til Norge tilpasser seg norsk språk ved å se etter norvagismer i deres naturlige muntlige språk. Som ...
