  • The loss of feminine gender in Norwegian: a dialect comparison 

    Busterud, Guro; Lohndal, Terje; Rodina, Yulia; Westergaard, Marit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-07-08)
    It is well known that grammatical gender systems may change historically. Previous research has documented loss of the feminine gender in several Norwegian dialects, including those spoken in Oslo and Tromsø (Lødrup in Maal og Minne 2:120–136, 2011; Rodina and Westergaard in J Ger Linguist 27(2):145–187 2015). In these dialects, the change is characterized by replacement of the feminine indefinite ...
  • Los trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda, historia setentrional de Miguel de Cervantes: Estado de la cuestión y su actualidad para hispanistas nórdicos 

    Davenport, Randi Lise (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-21)
    Miguel de Cervantes’ posthumous novel, <i>Los trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda, historia setentrional</i>, published in 1617, has in the past decades received renewed attention from Cervantes scholars. This article gives an overview of the main perspectives of current research at the 400<sup>th</sup> anniversary of the novel that the author himself considered his literary testament. It concludes ...
  • On the status of Concordantia Temporum in Spanish: An experimental approach 

    Guajardo, Gustavo Ariel; Goodall, Grant (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-10-23)
    Subjunctive clauses in Spanish are traditionally claimed to obey Concordantia Temporum (CT), an agreement in tense between the matrix and subjunctive clauses. Treating this phenomenon literally as agreement is problematic, so an analysis in which CT falls out from general principles of tense interpretation, as in Laca (2010a), is very attractive. Nevertheless, this analysis seems to make some <i>prima ...
  • The Reformation and the linguistic situation in Norway 

    Mørck, Endre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-08-05)
    The article gives a short account of the development of the spoken language from Old Norwegian to Modern Norwegian, the transition from Norwegian to Danish as the written language in Norway and the language of the church around the Reformation. It is argued that the changes in the spoken language were a long-term development completed, on the whole, at the time of the Reformation, that the transition ...
  • Editorial: Developmental, modal, and pathological variation-linguistic and cognitive profiles for speakers of linguistically proximal languages and varieties 

    Grohmann, Kleanthes K.; Kambanaros, Maria; Leivada, Evelina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-24)
  • Manufacturing Consent in Video Games—The Hegemonic Memory Politics of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (2015) 

    Hammar, Emil (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-11)
    In this article I argue that the structural conditions of global capitalism and postcolonialism encourage game developers to rearticulate hegemonic memory politics and suppress subaltern identities. This claim is corroborated via an application of Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky’s propaganda model to the Japanese-developed video game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. This case study highlights ...

    Lundedal Hammar, Emil (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2017-11-12)

  • Resultados vs. Realidad: un ejemplo en las actitudes lingüísticas 

    Ruiz Pareja, Raquel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2018-12-20)
    Este artículo presenta una revisión de parte de un estudio de investigación sobre actitudes lingüísticas: “Estudio sobre las actitudes lingüísticas en Andalucía: andaluz oriental y andaluz occidental” (Ruiz Pareja, 2015). El objetivo de este trabajo es arrojar un poco de luz sobre el contraste que existe en Sociolingüística entre las actitudes afectivas y cognitivas, que además están presentes en ...
  • Los clíticos marginales y el componente de manera 

    Fábregas, Antonio (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-01)
    Este trabajo estudia los llamados clíticos marginales que forman parte de ciertas construcciones idiomáticas de naturaleza verbal (<i>jorobar<u>la</u>, tomar<u>la</u>, pirárse<u>las</u>, jugárse<u>la</u></i>), concentrándose en dos aspectos de su gramática: su contribución de significado y la tendencia a aparecer como formas femeninas. Se propone que en ambos casos la respuesta se relaciona con la ...
  • Universal linguistic hierarchies are not innately wired. Evidence from multiple adjectives 

    Leivada, Evelina; Westergaard, Marit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-08-01)
    <p><i>Background - </i>Linguists and psychologists have explained the remarkable similarities in the orderings of linguistic elements across languages by suggesting that our inborn ability for language makes available certain innately wired primitives. Different types of adjectives, adverbs, and other elements in the functional spine are considered to occupy fixed positions via innate hierarchies ...
  • Verbal Symbols and Demonstrations Across Modalities 

    Ramchand, Gillian C (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-05-22)
    In this paper, I develop a new theory of the ingredients of semantic composition for the verb phrase, building on work in Ramchand (2018). I argue that the essential properties of this new approach make possible a new rapprochement between the theoretical analyses of symbolic verbal meaning across the visual and auditory modalities. The innovation of the new theory is that it partitions the verb ...
  • Memoria Dei: Minnets hermeneutikk i Augustins Confessiones 

    Dahl Hambro, Cathinka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-24)
    Denne artikkelen foretar en lesning av Augustins utlegning om erindringen i bok 10 av <i>Confessiones</i> (<i>Bekjennelser</i>). Jeg foreslår at Augustin selv opererer med en implisitt hermeneutisk tilnærming til sin fortid, til minnet og til seg selv i denne delen av verket. Ved hjelp av Ricoeurs hermeneutiske modell illustrert som en bue fra overfladisk fortolkning via ulike erkjennelsesetapper ...
  • Patografien som genre og funksjon 

    Nesby, Linda Hamrin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-02-25)
    I løpet av de siste femti år har det vært en sterk vekst i antall bøker knyttet til personlige sykdomserfaringer, såkalte patografier. Genren har tradisjonelt vært forbeholdt dokumentariske skildringer av pasient eller pårørende, men jeg argumenterer i denne artikkelen for at også skjønnlitteratur med selvbiografiske trekk som tematiserer sykdomsefaringer skal inkluderes. Ved hjelp av Ulla-Carin ...
  • Public libraries as public sphere institutions: A comparative study of perceptions of the public library’s role in six European countries 

    Audunson, Ragnar Andreas; Aabø, Svanhild; Blomgren, Roger; Hobohm, Hans Christoph; Jochumsen, Henrik; Khosrowjerdi, Mahmood; Mumenthaler, Rudolf; Schuldt, Karsten; Rasmussen, Casper Hvenegaard; Rydbeck, Kerstin; Toth, Mate; Vårheim, Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-26)
    <i>Purpose</i> – The purpose of this paper is to analyze the role of public libraries as institutions underpinning a democratic public sphere as reasons legitimizing libraries compared to reasons that are more traditional and the actual use of libraries as public sphere arenas. <p> <p><i>Design/methodology/approach</i> – A survey of representative samples of the adult population in six ...
  • Being a participant matters: Event-related potentials show that markedness modulates person agreement in Spanish 

    Bañón, José Alemán; Rothman, Jason (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-22)
    The present study uses event-related potentials to examine subject–verb person agreement in Spanish, with a focus on how markedness with respect to the speech participant status of the subject modulates processing. Morphological theory proposes a markedness distinction between first and second person, on the one hand, and third person on the other. The claim is that both the first and second persons ...
  • Critical Digital Literacy: Technology in Education Beyond Issues of User Competence and Labour-Market Qualifications 

    Pötzsch, Holger (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-08-26)
    The present contribution conducts an intervention in the study and practice of digital and media literacy. After reviewing key tenets of recent debates, I advance a specific under- standing of the concept – critical digital literacy – that, as I argue, comprehensively addresses issues of knowledge, competencies, and skills in relation to digital technologies. In particular, I posit that critical ...
  • Language mixing within verbs and nouns in American Norwegian 

    Riksem, Brita Ramsevik; Grimstad, Maren Berg; Lohndal, Terje; Åfarli, Tor Anders (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-29)
    This paper presents case-studies of language mixing within verbs and nouns in the heritage language American Norwegian, which refers to varieties spoken by Norwegian immigrants to the US and their descendants. The paper builds on data from the newly established <i>Corpus of American Norwegian Speech</i> and argues in favor of an exoskeletal approach to language mixing. This approach distinguishes ...
  • Do Russian paucal numerals govern the genitive? Evidence from stress placement 

    Nesset, Tore; Nordrum, Maria (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-17)
    A long-standing issue in Russian linguistics concerns the noun in paucal constructions like dva goroda ‘two cities’. Is goroda the genitive singular of gorod, a separate ‘numerative case form’, or a ‘paucal number’? Although stress has figured prominently in the debate, corpus data and informant data regarding stress have received little attention. Based on the accentuated part of the Russian National ...
