  • The Trickster and the Engineer 

    Fredriksen, Lill Tove (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-07)
    In the beginning of the 2000’s a meeting takes place at one of the major hospitals in Northern Norway, between a Sámi patient Juvvá, and his roommate, a retired Norwegian engineer. The engineer shows a negative attitude towards his Sámi roommate. Based on a symptomatic reading of three stories, this article presents a character analysis of Juvvá’s birgengoansttat, coping skills, in his encounter ...
  • Bilinguals’ sensitivity to grammatical gender cues in Russian: the role of cumulative input, proficiency, and dominance 

    Mitrofanova, Natalia; Rodina, Yulia; Urek, Olga; Westergaard, Marit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-11)
    This paper reports on an experimental study investigating the acquisition of grammatical gender in Russian by heritage speakers living in Norway. The participants are 54 Norwegian-Russian bilingual children (4;0-10;2) as well as 107 Russian monolingual controls (3;0-7;0). Previous research has shown that grammatical gender is problematic for bilingual speakers, especially in cases where gender ...
  • Los adjetivos deverbales y la noción de dominio ontológico 

    Fábregas, Antonio (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-06)
    Este trabajo discute el problema de que la inmensa mayoría de los adjetivos deverbales dan lugar a lecturas no episódicas, lo cual se traduce en desafíos para su análisis, toda vez que no tenemos una definición sólida de las propiedades positivas de los adjetivos. Se propone que en un sistema con dominios ontológicos donde el nivel verbal define esencias eventivas sin anclaje a mundos o tiempos ...
  • Algunos problemas de los sufijos con lectura de contacto brusco 

    Fábregas, Antonio (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-05-09)
    RESUMEN: Este trabajo explora tres aspectos de la gramática de los sufijos asociados a lecturas de golpe – más propiamente, contacto brusco- en español: -aco, -ada y –ón. Se propone que estos sufijos pueden formar sustantivos de contacto brusco porque, por distintos motivos en cada caso, están asociados en su entrada a un núcleo que denota un límite final (]) subespecificado acerca de la dimensión ...
  • Estructura de constituyentes y 'sino' 

    Fábregas, Antonio (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-06-26)
    Este trabajo muestra que, pese a las apariencias, las estructuras de No vi a Juan sino a María y Vi no a Juan sino a María son diferentes. Mientras que es posible aceptar un análisis estándar en el caso de la primera, la segunda estructura presenta propiedades sorprendentes que no son compatibles con la idea de que el a Juan funciona como argumento del predicado. Este trabajo propone que en el ...
  • Mapping the Black Void: Ianka Diagileva’s poem ‘Klassicheskii depresniak’ 

    Steinholt, Yngvar B. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-07-31)
    The article presents a two-level analysis of a poem on depression, ‘Klassicheskii depresniak’ (‘Classic Depressive’), by the Siberian poet and singer Iana “Ianka” Diagileva (1966-1991). The first level of analysis focuses on the lexical stratum of the poem, while the second compares the poem to psychiatric diagnostics (DSM-IV) and cognitive psychological theory (Seligman 1975), recommended by two ...
  • Challenging moral corruption in the postcolony: Ayi Kwei Armah’s The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born and Hannah Arendt’s notion of individual responsibility 

    Niemi, Minna Johanna (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-08-13)
    This article focuses on Ayi Kwei Armah’s <i>The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born</i> (1968), which portrays a nameless protagonist who clings to his own ethics as he resists corruption in Kwame Nkrumah’s Ghana in the 1960s, an instance of what Achille Mbembe has called the postcolony. This situation bears comparison with Hannah Arendt’s political philosophy, which emphasises individual responsibility ...
  • Playing Games with Shklovsky, Brecht, and Boal: Ostranenie, V-Effect, and Spect-Actors as Analytical Tools for Game Studies 

    Pötzsch, Holger (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-12)
    The present article provides a critical introduction to concepts of estrangement. After referring scholarly debates about origins, mutual relations, and legacies of concepts such as Viktor Shklovsky’s ostranenie, Bertolt Brecht’s V-effect, and Augusto Boal’s spect-actor, I critically review earlier applications of these concepts in game studies and point to some problematic aspects of these endeavors. ...
  • Language separation in bidialectal speakers: Evidence from eye tracking 

    Lundquist, Björn; Vangsnes, Øystein A (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-20)
    The aim of this study was to find out how people process the dialectal variation encountered in the daily linguistic input. We conducted an eye tracking study (Visual Word Paradigm) that targeted the online processing of grammatical gender markers. Three different groups of Norwegian speakers took part in the experiment: one group of students from the capital Oslo, and two groups of dialect speakers ...
  • Talk, Time, and Creativity: Developing Ideas and Identities During a Start-up Weekend 

    Hiss, Florian (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-02)
    This study explores the temporal dynamics of language use, collaboration, and creativity in the case of a start-up weekend. The organisation of interaction in time and the use of temporal indexes and semiotic resources vary over time, not simply because of changing contextual conditions, but rather because of dynamic developments in the flow of time. Interacting in time, the participants appropriate ...
  • Research Timeline: L2 Semantics from a formal linguistic perspective 

    Slabakova, Roumyana (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed; Preprint, 2018-03-15)
    Ever since Aristotle and Plato (<i>The Categories; Cratylus</i>), linguists have considered language to be the pairing of form (sounds or gestures or written strings) and meaning. This is true for all meaningful linguistic units from morphemes, through words, phrases and sentences, to discourse. Generally speaking, semantics is the study of how form and meaning are related. However, semantics is ...
  • Acquisition of locative utterances in Norwegian: structure-building via lexical learning 

    Mitrofanova, Natalia; Westergaard, Marit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-15)
    This paper focuses on the acquisition of locative prepositional phrases in L1 Norwegian. We report on two production experiments with children acquiring Norwegian as their first language and compare the results to similar experiments conducted with Russian children. The results of the experiments show that Norwegian children at age 2 regularly produce locative utterances lacking overt prepositions, ...
  • Cross-linguistic similarities and differences in bilingual acquisition and attrition: Possessives and double definiteness in Norwegian heritage language 

    Anderssen, Merete; Lundquist, Björn; Westergaard, Marit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-07-10)
    This study investigates possessives and modified definite DPs in a corpus of heritage Norwegian spoken in the US. Both constructions involve variation in Norwegian – two word orders for possessives (pre- and postnominal) and two exponents of definiteness (a prenominal determiner and a suffix) – while English only has one of these options. The findings show that a large majority of the heritage ...
  • ¿Son algunos interfijos morfemas apreciativos? 

    Fábregas, Antonio (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-05-03)
    Este artículo se ofrecen varios argumentos para considerar que los interfijos y los morfemas apreciativos son en realidad la misma clase de objetos, como sugiere Lázaro Mora (1999), lo cual permite tratarlos unificadamente como marcadores de la no prototipicidad de lo expresado en la base. Entre las consecuencias de esta propuesta se encuentra que no pueden asociarse los diminutivos ...
  • Workplace Multilingualism in Shifting Contexts: A Historical Case 

    Hiss, Florian (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-10-17)
    This article investigates linguistic diversity, migration, and labour in the case of a nineteenth-century copper mine in the multilingual northern periphery of Norway. Taking a historical perspective on workplace multilingualism, it reveals the dynamic relationships between the economic interests and policy-making of an industrial enterprise and the political and sociolinguistic development in a ...
  • What’s in (a) Label? Neural origins and behavioral manifestations of Identity Avoidance in language and cognition 

    Leivada, Evelina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    The present work defends the idea that grammatical categories are not in- trinsic to mergeable items, taking as a departure point Lenneberg’s (1967, 1975) claim that syntactic objects are definable only contextually. It is ar- gued that there are four different strands of inquiry that are of interest when one seeks to build an evolutionarily plausible theory of labels and operation Label: (i) ...
  • "I face a dark future." Letters from the Leprosy Archives, Bergen 

    Federhofer, Marie-Theres (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    The article focuses on patient letters sent by leprosy patients or their family members applying for place at a leprosy hospital. They were written between 1871 and 1911, are today part of the Leprosy Archives in Bergen and have not been presented, contextualised and analysed before. The article aims at both unveiling the illness experiences of those who suffered from the disease and demonstrating ...
  • Fra Karesjok, Tana-elv og Vadsøe Sogn i Sommerdragt: Resepsjonshistorikk og tolkningsmuligheter 

    Grini, Monica; Oskal, Nils (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    <i>Intro</i>: Johannes Flintoe (1787–1870) sin akvarell Fra Karesjok, Tana-Elv og Vadsøe Sogn i Sommerdragt (bilde 1), som viser tre navngitte yngre menn ikledd drakter fra Finnmark, er laget i perioden 1831–1833 og har en lang resepsjonshistorie. Allerede i plansjeverket Norske Nationaldragter fra 1852 er bildet reprodusert. I dette verket har kunstneren Johan Eckersberg (1822–1870), under tittelen ...
  • Lexicalist vs. exoskeletal approaches to language mixing 

    Grimstad, Maren Berg; Riksem, Brita Ramsevik; Lohndal, Terje; Åfarli, Tor Anders (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-05)
    This article presents empirical evidence that disfavors using highly lexicalist minimalist models, such as the one presented in Chomsky (1995), when analyzing language mixing. The data analyzed consist of English – Spanish mixed noun phrases discussed in Moro (2014) as well as English – Norwegian mixed noun phrases and verbs taken from the Corpus of American Norwegian Speech. Whereas the lexicalist ...
  • Language Dominance Affects Bilingual Performance and Processing Outcomes in Adulthood 

    Puig Mayenco, Eloi; Cunnings, Ian; Bayram, Fatih; Miller, David; Tubau, Susagna; Rothman, Jason (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-07-26)
    This study examines the role of language dominance (LD) on linguistic competence outcomes in two types of early bilinguals: (i) child L2 learners of Catalan (L1 Spanish-L2 Catalan and, (ii) child Spanish L2 learners (L1 Catalan-L2 Spanish). Most child L2 studies typically focus on the development of the languages during childhood and either focus on L1 development or L2 development. Typically, these ...
