    • Peer Assessment in EFL Classrooms. A Qualitative Approach to Implementing Peer Assessment in Oral Communicative Learning Activities in EFL Classrooms 

      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 ...
    • The Phonology of Flapping in Norwegian Function Words. A prosodic analysis of Norwegian clitics 

      Lehn, Magnus (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-29)
      The phonological process of flapping in Norwegian is the process in which an underlying voiced alveolar stop /d/ in a function word surfaces as the voiced postalveolar tap /ɾ/. The majority of the data used for this paper is from Urban Eastern Norwegian (UEN), which is a group of dialects from the south-eastern region of Norway, although similar processes and forms of flapping occur in a wide variety ...

      Pilsbacher, Anna Katharina (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-05-15)
      This thesis addresses the production and perception of sentences with ambiguous prepositional phrase attachment in Standard German. In the first part of the study, an informed native speaker produced prosodically disambiguated sentences, which were analysed acoustically for disambiguation cues. In the second part, these sentences were then presented in a perception test where respondents were asked ...
    • 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. These factors influence the way in which ‘the speaker’ may perceive or interpret the canarian vary. As with other Spanish speaking countries such as America there are many similarities. Although, ...
    • 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 ...
    • Retroflex suffixation in Beijing dialect 

      Liu, Zhiyin (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2012-05-31)
      The aim of this thesis is to explore the phonological opacity of the retroflex suffixation in Beijing Dialect. The retroflex suffixation contains a series of phonetic variables in the main syllable and a phonological opacity. With respect to the former analysis of a phonological approach, there arises variable issues in divergence, including the underlying form of the retroflex suffix, the underlying ...
    • 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 ...
    • ’Sproget i fare’. Knut Hamsuns syn på språkbruk og språkpolitikk 

      Nordmo, Jorun (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2003-06-16)
      Oppgaven handler, som oppgaveteksten antyder, om Knut Hamsuns syn på språkbruk og språkpolitikk. Hamsun er selvfølgelig mest kjent som forfatter, men han skrev en lang rekke artikler hvor han ga uttrykk for sitt syn på språk- og språkforhold i samtida. Spesielt var han opptatt av landsmålets framgang, og han engasjerte seg sterkt på motstandernes side i debatten om samnorsk-idéen. Jeg har spesielt ...
    • Stadnamnlån : fonologi og ortografi i lydlig lånte stadnamn med eit oversyn over fonologien i norsk på Skibotn og i Kvenangsbotn 

      Pedersen, Aud-Kirsti (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 1989-01)
      I språkvitskapen er stadnamngransking ein gammal fagdisiplin. Hovudtyngda av arbeidet innom disiplinen har lege på tolking av stadnamn. Tolking av stadnamn er likevel berre ein av mange tilnærmingsmåtar til stadnamngranskinga. I fleirspråklige område kjem det til nye dimensjonar ved stadnamna som namnegranskaren må ta omsyn til. I dette arbeidet er føremålet å greie ut ymse sider ved stadnamn som ...
    • Stress-epenthesis interaction and defect-driven rules 

      Strycharczuk, Patrycja (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2009-05-14)
      This thesis is concerned with the interaction of two phenomena: vowel epenthesis and stress assignment. Vowels are potential targets for stress, and they count for determining the stress window in systems where stress is grammaticaly predictable. Epenthetic vowels, however, are often exceptional in this respect. There is an array of languages where epenthetic vowels shun stress, or in some other way ...
    • Systemisk funksjonell lingvistikk til bruk i kreativ skriving i grunnskolen 

      Hermansen, Anne-Grethe (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2001-05-02)
      Målsettinga for denne oppgaven var å finne muligheter til systematisk opplæring av enkeltelevene i kreativ skriving, spesielt noveller, i skolen. Valget falt på en meningsbasert lingvistisk tilnærming med et funksjonelt språksyn i bunnen. Dette sammenholdes med "Læreplanen av 1997", som er de rammene skolens innhold og undervisning hviler på. Videre så jeg på lærebøkene for ett klassetrinn i ...
