    Rajabi, Melika (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2022-05-14)

According to this hypothesis, functional morphology is the most challenging part for second language learners to acquire, while narrow syntax and semantics are ...

  • Measureless quantificational exclamatives 

    Vangsnes, Øystein A (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-08-22)
    There is considerable variation related to the form of exclamatives across North Germanic varieties (see Delsing 2010 and Abels and Vangsnes 2010). However, in the Nordic Syntax Database there is only information about one particular and somewhat special kind of exclamative construction, here termed ‘measureless quantificational exclamative’ and exemplified by the Swedish example in (1). (1) Vad ...

    De siste 30 årene har pedagogiske kvalifikasjoner fått stadig større betydning for ansettelser ved norske universitet og vitenskapelige høyskoler. I forbindelse med Kvalitetsreformen i 2003 ble dette koblet til forbedring av studiekvaliteten.

    Fonneland, Trude A. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013-01-07)
    A cultural turn in the economy has led to growth in what might be called ‘spiritual entrepreneurship’.1 This term refers to entrepreneurs inspired by a New Age philosophy marketing spiritual values such as ‘self-development’, ‘holism’ and ‘deep values’. To shed light on this type of enterprise, the article examines one of its practitioners; Esther Utsi at Polmakmoen Guesthouse in northern ...
  • Religion Education in Norway: Tension or Harmony between Human Rights and Christian Cultural Heritage? 

    Andreassen, Bengt-Ove (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-01-23)
    Both research and public and scholarly debate on religious education (RE) in Norway have mostly revolved around the subject in primary and secondary school called Christianity, Religion and Ethics (KRL) (later renamed Religion, Philosophies of Life and Ethics, RLE), not least due to the criticisms raised by the UN’s Human Rights Committee in 2004 and the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in ...
  • Fleksibilisering og femininisering i høyere utdanning:eksemplet desentralisert lærerutdanning 

    Skjelmo, Randi (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012-02-08)
    En forløper for dagens fleksible utdanninger ved høgskoler og universitet var de desentraliserte lærerutdanningene som ble igangsatt på 1970-tallet. Flesteparten av studentene den gang var kvinner som ikke hadde anledning til å flytte til et studiested for å ta utdanning. Et uttalt siktemål var å ta i bruk den utdanningsreserven som husmødre representerte. Tiltaket var inspirert av det britiske Open ...

  • On inhibited eventualities 

    Fábregas, Antonio; González Rodríguez, Raquel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-22)
    The existence of negative descriptions denoting events is controversial in the literature, since it implies enriching the semantic ontology with negative events. The goal of this article is to argue that the readings that have been called ‘negative events’—in contrast to sentential negation reading—should be analysed as inhibited eventualities. We will argue that the inhibited eventuality reading ...

  • Doubling of Negation 

    Østbø Munch, Christine B.; Garbacz, Piotr (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-08-22)
    Doubling of negation, where a declarative is initiated and finished with negation as shown in (1) below, consists of two different structures: clause-initial negation and clause-final negation, and these need not be related. (1) Inte har jag sett honom inte. (Fenno-Swedish) not has I seen him not ‘I have certainly not seen him’ (Bergroth 1928: 159) Clause-initial negation, which contributes ...
  • Verb placement in relative clauses 

    Bentzen, Kristine (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-08-22)
    The Scandinavian languages generally display V2 in main clauses (but see Bentzen 2014a, who discusses clauses introduced by maybe, which constitute an exception to this pattern). However, in embedded contexts, V2 is only available in certain restricted contexts, such as certain embedded that-clauses (see Bentzen 2014b). In most other embedded contexts, such as embedded wh-questions and relative ...
