  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
  • Heritage language acquisition: What it reveals and why it is important for formal linguistic theories 

    Lohndal, Terje; Rothman, Jason; Kupisch, Tanja; Westergaard, Marit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-08-30)
    This paper discusses the interplay between acquisition and theory construction. It endeavors to show how a more direct and crucially bi‐directional relationship between formal linguistic theory and the study of heritage language bilingualism can provide mutual benefit. It will be argued that data from acquisition—not exclusively but indeed especially from heritage language bilingualism—provide windows ...
  • Compounds and culture: Conceptual blending in Norwegian and Russian 

    Nesset, Tore; Sokolova, Svetlana (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-08-20)
    This study explores compounds from the perspective of conceptual blending (conceptual integration), and argues that the meaning of compounds arises through the interaction of three levels: (i) input spaces established for the head and non-head components, (ii) a blended space involving compression and emergent structure, i.e. elements not imported from the input spaces, and (iii) the language system ...
  • «La bonanza que prometen en el mar las señales del cielo»: El agua como topografía del alma y conector de la memoria discursiva en Los trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda 

    Poza Diéguez, Mónica (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Cervantes, en <i>Los trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda</i>, emplea dinámicamente memoria e <i>imaginatio</i> y moderniza el género, por medio del uso de la <i>imitatio compuesta</i>. El agua, que en el Persiles adopta, entre otras, la forma del ‘mar’, los ‘ríos’, pero también del ‘hielo’, <i>vincula</i> las diversas aventuras que se suceden, así como el fluir narrativo, memorístico e imaginario, ...
  • Predicting outcomes in heritage grammars 

    Lohndal, Terje (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-07-08)
  • Dando crédito al Septentrión: Ricla y el naufragio de Pietro Querini en la isla de Røst 

    Davenport, Randi Lise (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2019)
    Este artículo propone una interpretación de la ‘bárbara caritativa’ Ricla como personaje de inspiración tanto, o más, septentrional que ‘americana’. Esta interpretación se basa en una nueva lectura del relato del naufragio del gentilhombre veneciano, Pietro Querini, en la costa norte de Noruega en el año 1431-1432, un relato recogido en el segundo volumen de la muy difundida obra de Giovanni Battista ...
