    Voits, Toms; Deluca, Vincent Francesco; Hao, Jiuzhou; Elin, Kirill; Aboutalebi, Jubin; Andoni Duñabeitia, Jon; Berglund, Gaute; Gabrielsen, Anders; Rook, Janine; Thomsen, Hilde; Waagen, Philipp; Rothman, Jason (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-05-04)
    Multilingualism has been demonstrated to lead to a more favorable trajectory of neurocognitive aging, yet our understanding of its effect on neurocognition across the lifespan remains limited. We collected resting state EEG recordings from a sample of multilingual individuals across a wide age range. Additionally, we obtained data on participant multilingual language use patterns alongside other ...
  • The role of entrenchment and schematisation in the acquisition of rich verbal morphology 

    Kosutar, Sara; Hrzica, Gordana; Botica, Tomislava Bosnjak; Milin, Petar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-04-30)
    Entrenchment and schematisation are the two most important cognitive processes in language acquisition. In this article, the role of the two processes, operationalised by token and type frequency, in the production of overgeneralised verb forms in Croatian preschool children is investigated using a parental ques tionnaire and computational simulation of language acquisition. The participants ...
  • Literacy overrides effects of animacy: A picture-naming study with pre-literate German children and adult speakers of German and Arabic 

    Dolscheid, Sarah; Schlenter, Judith; Penke, Martina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-04-17)
    Animacy plays a key role for human cognition, which is also reflected in the way humans process language. However, while experiments on sentence processing show reliable effects of animacy on word order and grammatical function assignment, effects of animacy on conjoined noun phrases (e.g., fish and shoe vs. shoe and fish) have yielded inconsistent results. In the present study, we tested the ...
  • Erfaringer med norsk og engelsk blant internasjonalt ansatte på NTNU 

    Busby, Nicole Louise; Angelsen, Anja Katrine; Nygård, Gro; Dahl, Anne; Listhaug, Kjersti Faldet (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2024)
    92 % av de fast ansatte og 69 % av de midlertidig ansatte rapporterer å ha tatt norskkurs i større eller mindre grad. Likevel oppgir bare 54 % av fast ansatte at de føler de kan nok norsk til å gjøre jobben sin godt. • 36 % av fast ansatte rapporterer å ha tatt kurs tilsvarende minst B2-nivå i norsk. Av disse rapporterte 25 % at de fortsatt ikke følte at de kunne nok norsk til å gjøre jobben sin ...
  • Adapting a linguistic constructicon resource to L2 learners and instructors: a challenging endeavor 

    Endresen, Anna; Zhukova, Valentina; Janda, Laura Alexis (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2024-03)
    We present the challenges faced and decisions made in creating the Russian Constructicon (https://constructicon.github.io/russian/) as a multifunctional resource. We focus on two crucial categories of target users, linguists and L2 learners & instructors, and show that they have somewhat conflicting needs and expectations. While linguists want a maximally comprehensive inventory and its description, ...
  • Construxercise! A new digital resource with construction-based exercises for L2 Russian 

    Endresen, Anna; Janda, Laura Alexis; Zhukova, Valentina (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2024-03)
    In this talk, we will discuss how we can bridge the gap between a constructicon resource and second language (L2) learners, drawing our insights from the actual practice of construction-based teaching. We suggest that having a constructicon resource, even with a user-friendly design, might not be enough to successfully engage L2 students with its content. We 1) summarize the accommodations for L2 ...
  • Einleitung 

    Federhofer, Marie-Theres; Bergner, Marit; Henningsen, Bernd (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2024-04-01)
    Im Jahr 2023 jährte sich zum 250. Mal der Geburtstag des dänisch-norwegischen Naturwissenschaftlers, Philosophen, Schriftstellers und Universitätsreformers Henrik Steffens (1773–1845),1 der sein gesamtes Berufsleben in dem seinerzeit politisch noch nicht existierenden Deutschland verbrachte – als Freund Schel-lings und Schleiermachers, als Professor, als Literat und als aktiver ...
  • Die "gesetzgebende Gewalt" der Chemie. Henrik Steffens und die chemische Geologie um 1800 

    Federhofer, Marie-Theres (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2024)
    Der Beitrag handelt davon, wie Steffens sein Interesse an chemischen Prozessen in der Natur mit zeitlichen Prozessen in der Geologie zusammenbringt. Durch die Fokussierung chemischer Prozesse gelingt es ihm – so die These – die Prozessualität organischer und anorganischer Erscheinungen nachzuweisen und dadurch sein Projekt einer „innern Naturgeschichte der Erde“, die sowohl Anorganisches als Organisches ...
  • Cross-linguistic effects in grammatical gender assignment and predictive processing in L1 Greek, L1 Russian, and L1 Turkish speakers of Norwegian as a second language 

    Johannessen, Janne Bondi; Lundquist, Björn; Rodina, Yulia; Tengesdal, Eirik; Kaldhol, Nina Hagen; Türker, Emel; Fyndanis, Valantis (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-03-21)
    The present study examines grammatical gender knowledge in offline production (gender marking on indefinite articles) and online gender processing (visual world paradigm) in adult second language (L2) learners of Norwegian with three different first languages (L1s): Greek, Russian, and Turkish. In particular, it investigates the role of the following factors: (1) presence vs. absence of grammatical ...
  • Does a name make a difference? The neo-documentalist movement, where does it stand after 27 years 1996–2023 

    Lund, Niels Windfeld (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-09-01)
    Purpose - The purpose of the paper is to analyze how the Neo-documentalist movement, initiated in 1996 by Michael Buckland, Boyd Rayward and Niels Lund, has evolved in its 27 years history, how the choice of documentation as name of the new program in Tromsø has made a difference in the LIS field and how different documentation scholars around the world has participated and approached the movement ...
  • Eco-Phenomenology in the Dark 

    Falke, Cassandra (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    This chapter uses the methods and insights of phenomenology– especially Maurice Merleau- Ponty’s chiasmus and Jean- Luc Marion’s saturated phenomenality– to articulate the symbiosis between the human subject and the natural world. By conceptualizing the human subject as felt as well as feeling (Merleau- Ponty), and as receiving experiences that overwhelm our conceptual apparatus (Marion), these ...
  • Reader as Witness: First-Person Perpetrators of Political Violence in Contemporary Literature 

    Falke, Cassandra (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-08-16)
    Twenty-first century novels increasingly portray twentieth-century histories of violence in a way that implicates readers: as keepers of public memory, as complicit in ongoing political violence, and even as potential perpetrators. These novels target a global readership and treat the recollections of past atrocities and the prevention of future ones as a global responsibility. This essay describes ...
  • The Sublime in American Romanticism 

    Falke, Cassandra (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    This chapter examines the influence of William Bartram´s <i>Travels through North and South Carolina, Georgia, East and West Florida</i> on the writing of Wordsworth and Coleridge in the 1790s and highlights the uniqueness of Bartram´s eco-centric approach to sublimity in early American thinking about the natural world. A practiced botanist and natural illustrator, Bartram delights in cataloguing ...
  • The effect of metacognitive executive function training on children's executive function, proactive control, and academic skills 

    Kubota, Maki; Hadley, Lauren V.; Schaeffner, Simone; Könen, Tanja; Meaney, Julie-Anne; Morey, Candice C.; Auyeung, Bonnie; Moriguchi, Yusuke; Karbach, Julia; Chevalier, Nicolas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023)
    The current study investigated the effects of metacognitive and executive function (EF) training on childhood EF (inhibition, working memory [WM], cognitive flexibility, and proactive/reactive control) and academic skills (reading, reasoning, and math) among children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Children (N = 134, Mage = 8.70 years) were assigned randomly to the three training groups: (a) ...
  • 'Svalbard in Polish Documentaries (1930s-2020s): A Conceptualized Inventory' 

    Rogatchevski, Andrei; Szymala, Jacek (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023)
    For the first time ever, over fifty Polish documentaries about Svalbard, filmed during the ninety years of Polish presence on the archipelago, have been looked at and categorized. Four distinct periods of such documentary-making have been identified and characterized: the heroic (in the 1930s), the exotic (in the 1950s-60s), the routine (in the 1970-90s) and the ethical (from the 1990s until present). ...
  • "Dei tidvile baklengslogikkane. Analepsar og analeptiske grep i Therese Tungens "Flaumen" 

    Auklend, Morten (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    Noko som slår ein som les Therese Tungen sine noveller, er alle analepsane, altså tilbakeblikk eller retrospeksjonar i tekstane.i I dei to samlingane Ein gong var dei ulvar (2017) og Kjærleik og det som liknar (2019) vender narrasjonen, det vil seie tekstforteljaren, stadig attende til fortidige hendingar, samtaler, møte og livsfasar i karakterane si fortid for å rekonsteksualisere refleksjonar, val ...
  • Harnessing the bilingual descent down the mountain of life: Charting novel paths for Cognitive and Brain Reserves research 

    Rothman, Jason (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-03-13)
    Evidence from various empirical study types have converged to show bilingualism's potential for serving as a cognitive and brain reserves contributor. In this article, I contextualize, frame the need for and offer some expanding questions in this endeavor, inclusive of empirical pathways to address them. While the set of variables and questions discussed herein are definitively incomplete, they ...
  • Mellom inkludering og indigenisering: Om utvikling av norskdidaktisk forskning om samiske tema 

    Sollid, Hilde; Johansen, Åse Mette (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2024)
    Vi starter dette kapittelet med å slå fast at det per i dag ikke finnes noen norskdidaktisk klassikertekst som handler om arbeid med samiske tema i norskfaget. I mangel på en slik tekst har vi valgt å ta utgangspunkt i et samisk ordtak som – typisk for sjangeren – har vært tradert muntlig gjennom historien som en del av kulturell forvaltning av verdier og tankesett. I ordtaket settes det å finne ...
