  • Less is more: why all paradigms are defective, and why that is a good thing 

    Janda, Laura Alexis; Tyers, Francis Morton (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-21)
    Only a fraction of lexemes are encountered in all their paradigm forms in any corpus or even in the lifetime of any speaker. This raises a question as to how it is that native speakers confidently produce and comprehend word forms that they have never witnessed. We present the results of an experiment using a recurrent neural network computational learning model. In particular, we com- pare the ...
  • Barnets rett til en forsvarlig levestandard - utøvelse av skjønn i Nav og barneverntjeneste 

    Kane, Aina Aune; Neverdal, Sissel; Stenberg, Oddbjørn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Barn har menneskerettslig krav på en forsvarlig levestandard. Oppvekst i lavinntektsfamilier medfører risiko for utenforskap og generasjonsoverføring av fattigdom, og forebyggingsog bistandsansvar påligger ulike kommunale virksomhetsområder. Vår undersøkelse i barnevernstjeneste og Nav viser at barnets rettigheter kan hemmes og fremmes av ulike forhold. Skolers organisering av kostnadsmessige ...
  • 'No fornicar': el discurso de culpa, penitencia y perdón en el Confessonario en lengua cumanagota (1723) de Diego de Tapia 

    Sarion, Roxana (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Este artículo plantea el análisis del Confessonario en lengua cumanagota (1723) del franciscano Diego de Tapia como herramienta de conversión basada en modelos de represión y técnicas inquisitoriales. Con el fin de perseguir al indígena en su conducta infiel y lasciva, el confesionario se presenta como instrumento coercitivo destinado a enseñar la ética cristiana a los indígenas de la costa oriental ...
  • Observasjonell film og situasjonsanalyse. Nye muligheter for utvikling av antropologisk forståelse. 

    Arntsen, Bjørn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-19)
    Hvordan bidrar etnografisk film til antropologisk forståelse? Hva er likheter og forskjeller i perspektiver og metoder i etnografiske filmopptak og en mer konvensjonell antropologi? Film og tekst er to ulike representasjonsformer med ulike styrker og svakheter. Jeg vil her argumentere for at det i møtet mellom den i utgangspunktet tekstbaserte situasjonsanalysen, slik den formuleres av Manchesterskolen, ...
  • Bishop Sámegillii: Utfordringer ved oversetting av matematikkdidaktisk fagterminologi 

    Fyhn, Anne Birgitte; Eira, Ellen J. Sara; Hætta, Ole Einar Isaksen; Juuso, Inga Anne Marit; Nordkild, Siv Ingrid; Skum, Ellen Margrethe (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-11)
    I artikkelen belyser vi kulturelle og språklige utfordringer som kan oppstå når teoretiske begreper fra matematikkdidaktisk forskning oversettes til et språk og en kultur som er fjernt fra språket og kulturen der begrepene ble utviklet. I samarbeid med forskere oversatte lærere ved Guovdageainnu nuoraidskuvla/Kautokeino ungdomsskole et matematikkdidaktisk rammeverk fra engelsk til nordsamisk. Vi ...

    In this chapter Roxana Sarion examines the understudied Spanish colonial missionary text Conversion de Piritu (1690) by Matías Ruiz Blanco to demonstrate how it has been able to convey different cultural messages over time due to its changing material and visual forms, which becomes particularly prominent in the digital age. The change from the printed format to the digital adds new cultural dimensions ...

  • The decade construction rivalry in Russian: Using a corpus to study historical linguistics 

    Nesset, Tore; Makarova, Anastasia (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-04-16)
    This article addresses the diachronic development of so-called rival forms, i.e., words or grammatical constructions that appear to be synonyms, based on a detailed empirical analysis of two seemingly synonymous constructions in Russian. Corresponding to the English ‘decade construction’ <i>in the twenties</i>, Russian has two rival constructions, viz. <i>v dvadcatye gody</i> [<i>lit</i>. “in the ...
  • Indigenous Political Journalism in the Norwegian and Swedish Public Service Broadcasters 

    Skogerbø, Eli; Josefsen, Eva; Fjellström, Anna-Maria (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-06)
    Across the world, Indigenous peoples are reclaiming their cultural and political identities, after having suffered decades of assimilation, repression and marginalisation. A major tool in this process is Indigenous journalism, which allows for storytelling and news reporting from the inside, as opposed to being a marginalised group that is only reported about from the outside. This article ...

  • When We Went Digital and Seven Other Stories about Slavic Historical Linguistics in the 21st Century 

    Nesset, Tore (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-02-22)
    In this overview article, I seek to identify and discuss some tendencies in Slavic historical linguistics in recent years. Rather than presenting an extensive catalogue of studies on miscellaneous topics, I focus on three general issues, viz., how Slavic historical linguistics is developing in response to new theoretical ideas, methodological innovation, and "new" data. The article explores case ...
  • Who should be granted electoral rights at the state Level? 

    Duarte, Melina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    This paper has a twofold aim in determining who should be granted electoral rights at the state level, one negative and another positive. The negative part deconstructs the link between state-level political membership and citizenship and contests naturalization procedures. This approach argues that naturalization procedures, when coercively used as a necessary condition for accessing electoral ...
  • Back to the Future? Revisiting Military Confidence-Building in Europe 

    Schaller, Benjamin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    The last few years have seen a paradigm shift in European security. NATO and Russia are once again stepping up their military activities and building their military arsenals, as deep mistrust and the fear of unintended military escalation seem to have returned. Over the last few decades, such concerns could be mitigated by an interlocking web of arms control and confidence- and security-building ...
  • Nature Articulations in Norwegian Advertising Discourse: A Depoliticized Discourse of Climate Change 

    Kvidal-Røvik, Trine (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-11)
    This article deals with how nature is articulated in public discourse, and more specifically how humans’ relationship to nature is constructed via such articulations. Based on critical cultural analyses of ads presented in a Norwegian context, the article claims articulations of nature serve to a depoliticization of nature, which silence social differences and reduce environmental politics ...
  • A Design-Oriented Analysis of Multimodality in English as a Foreign Language 

    Jakobsen, Ingrid K.; Tønnessen, Elise Seip (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-28)
    This empirical article investigates multimodality in English as a foreign language, both as seen in the use of multimodal texts as artefacts and pedagogical texts for learning, and through an analysis of the multimodal learning designs. We present observations from a year 10 classroom in Norway that worked with the novel <i>The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian</i> (Alexie, 2007). We explore ...
  • L1-L2 differences in the L2 classroom: Anticipating Anglophone learners' difficulties with French pronoun interpretation 

    Shimanskaya, Elena; Slabakova, Roumyana (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-11-29)
    In this article, we address the issue of targeted instruction on interpretive contrasts between native and second-language grammatical meanings. Such mismatches are predicted to create challenges for learners. We illustrate this with French and English pronouns. In French, clitic pronouns (<i>le, la</i>) point to human as well as inanimate referents, while English pronouns distinguish between human ...
  • Social-ecological timelines to explore human adaptation to coastal change 

    Brattland, Camilla; Eythórsson, Einar; Weines, Jørn; Sunnanå, Knut (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-19)
    Through the construction of a socio-ecological timeline for the Porsanger fjord ecosystem, this article illustrates the different ways in which environmental and social–ecological changes have influenced the adaptations of rural households in coastal Sami communities in Finnmark, north Norway. The main finding is that, although environmental change in the form of seal invasions and dwindling ...
