  • When Russian is more Perfective than Spanish 

    Fábregas, Antonio; Janda, Laura Alexis (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    In this article we analyze cases in which Spanish imperfective aspect is equivalent to Russian perfective forms, a topic that has received very little attention in the literature. We argue that a crucial difference between perfectives in both languages is the relevance of the starting point of the event. Russian adopts an aspectual perspective from within an extended event, which gives access to the ...

A main purpose of the paper is to report the findings from this explorative case study on the relationship of a public library system with its communities from a community resilience perspective. The study is a part of a research project aiming at creating empirically-based knowledge on the ...
  • Institutional convergence in the LAM sector: a contribution towards a conceptual framework 

    Vårheim, Andreas; Skare, Roswitha; Lenstra, Noah (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-12)
    Introduction. This paper presents and discusses a historical institutional framework for studying institutional change processes in library, archives & museum institutions. A limited application of this framework is applied to the case of modern public libraries in Norway and Sweden, for illustrative purposes. Method. We conducted a literature review on institutional and organizational convergence ...
  • I begynnelsen. Noen betraktninger om språk, landskap og poetologi 

    Greve, Anniken (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-01-20)
    Artikkelen undersøker muligheten for å la Nord-Norge og Sápmi være utgangspunktet for poetologiske refleksjoner. Med utgangspunkt i kongrastenmellom skaperkraften i Guds ord og menneskespråket knytter den an til den sere Wittgesteins forestilling om hvordan vi blir språklige. Gjennom en modifisering av visse tolkninger av Wittgenstein argumenterer artikkelen for et nært, men komplekst forhold mellom ...
  • Improving observational blends research: regression modeling in the study of experimentally-elicited blends 

    Wulff, Stefanie; Gries, Stefan Th. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-12-16)
    In this paper, we discuss the results of a blend production experiment and how it relates to previous research that was nearly exclusively based on observational data. Specifically, we study three different findings from published research, namely that (i) the shorter source word contributes more of itself to the blend than the longer source word, (ii) source word2 determines blend stress (more than ...
  • Så fjernt det nære: Nasjonalmuseet og samisk kunst 

    Grini, Monica (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-10-14)
    I mesteparten av Nasjonalmuseets nærmere tohundreårige historie har samiske forhold spilt en fraværende rolle. I 2018 sendte museet ut en pressemelding om at «Nasjonalmuseet styrker samlingen av samisk kunst», noe som kan ses som uttrykk for en vending i museets samlingshistorie og representasjonspraksis. Artikkelen forsøker å kontekstualisere utsagnene i pressemeldingen gjennom en undersøkelse av ...
  • "Jeg gjør nu ikke regning paa synderlig lang livsfrist". Unaturlig narrativ og håp i Henrik Wergelands dødsleiedikt 

    Nesby, Linda Hamrin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-12-19)
    Studies within oncology show that patients suffering from cancer report having a stronger feeling of hope than the general population. Such findings correspond to the pivotal role hope has in Henrik Wergeland’s (1808–1845) six so-called deathbed poems. Writing of illness the way Wergeland does is a part of the tradition of autobiographical literature called pathography. However, also having a dead ...
  • A Tale of Two Versions: I Am Legend and the Political Economy of Cultural Production 

    Pötzsch, Holger (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-11)
    Based on a comparative reading of the officially released version and the director’s cut of Francis Lawrence’s movie <i>I Am Legend</i> (2007a; 2007b), the present contribution interrogates possible connections between the political economy of film production and aesthetic form. Drawing upon theoretical frameworks such as Herman and Chomsky’s propaganda model and Artz’ critical study of global ...
  • Akademiske skrivesentres rolle i høyere utdanning – en kartlegging av behovet for opplæring i akademisk skriving blant studenter ved en høyere utdanningsinstitusjon i Norge 

    Dahl Hambro, Cathinka; Tessem Strøm, Janine; Skillingstad, Torhild (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-20)
    Stadig større fokus rettes mot skriving og tekstkyndighet i norsk utdanning, ettersom forskning gjennomført de senere år har vist at studenter i høyere utdanning finner akademisk skriving utfordrende og ønsker bedre opplæring og oppfølging i dette aspektet av utdanningen. I denne artikkelen presenterer vi funn fra en studentundersøkelse gjort i forbindelse med kurs i akademisk skriving i regi av et ...
  • Uwe Krüger: Warum wir den Medien nicht mehr trauen 

    Pötzsch, Holger (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-11)
    <i>Mainstream: Warum wir den Medien nicht mehr trauen</i> viser hvorfor en voksende avstand mellom borgere og elitene er problematisk for et demokratisk samfunn. En journalistikk som viser seg ute av stand til å kritisk følge elitedrevne prosesser og praksiser mister den sentrale vaktbikkjefunksjonen som man ofte uten videre ettertanke tildeler store medieaktører. <i>Krügers bok</i> kan sees som et ...
  • Familjen som pesthärd: Sjukdom och förbrytelse i Vigdis Hjorths Arv og miljø 

    Johnsson, Henrik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-12-19)
    This article conducts a close reading of Vigdis Hjorth’s novel <i>Arv og miljø</i> (2016). I argue that the novel is informed by an imagery of contagion and disease which is used to express a theme of dysfunctional familial relationships. A related imagery of boundaries and cleanliness is used to relay the narrator’s experience of having been sexually assaulted by her father. In closing, I maintain ...
  • ABM-utvikling og avvikling: institusjonell konvergens og divergens i kulturpolitikken 

    Skare, Roswitha; Stokstad, Sigrid; Vårheim, Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-12-11)
    The Norwegian Archive, Library and Museum Authority (<i>ABM-utvikling – Statens senter for arkiv, bibliotek og museum</i>) existed between 2003 and 2010. This article raises the question of why ABM-utvikling was not continued as a cultural policy instrument for the LAM sector. The new body for LAM policy development was based on the notion of converging media expressions and institutions in the ...
  • Paratext – a useful concept for the analysis of digital documents? 

    Skare, Roswitha (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    In his study, Paratexts: Thresholds of Interpretation , the French literature scholar Gérard Genette introduces the concept of the “paratext” to the public. Genette explains the term paratext as that “what enables a text to become a book and to be offered as such to its readers and, more generally, to the public” (Genette 1997, 1). Genette’s concept has since also been applied to other media, ...
  • Latvian CDI: Methodology, developmental trends and cross-linguistic comparison 

    Urek, Olga; Vulane, Anna; Dargis, Roberts; Taurina, Agrita; Zirina, Tija; Simonsen, Hanne Gram (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-21)
    In this article, we report the results of a large-scale population study based on the Latvian adaptation of Communicative Development Inventories (CDI) – a parental report tool aimed at mapping the lexical and grammatical development of children under the age of three. Two CDI forms are discussed: CDI I: ‘Words and Gestures’ (8–16 months), and CDI II: ‘Words and Sentences’ (17–36 months). This article ...
  • El ángel caído en Política de Dios y Sueño del infierno de Quevedo 

    Davenport, Randi Lise (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2019-08-09)
    Este artículo pretende examinar cómo Quevedo aprovecha la figura de Lucifer (el diablo, o ángel caído) en su tratado político <i>Política de Dios</i> y en su sátira menipea <i>Sueño del infierno</i> para reprehender al rey y su privado al tratar de la polémica cuestión de la razón de Estado.
  • 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)
