  • Preregistration: The interplay between linguistic and embodied systems in conceptual processing 

    Bernabeu, Pablo (Preprint; Manuskript, 2021)
    This preregistration outlines a study that will investigate the dynamic nature of conceptual processing by examining the interplay between linguistic distributional systems—comprising word co-occurrence and word association—and embodied systems—comprising sensorimotor and emotional information. A set of confirmatory research questions are addressed using data from the Calgary Semantic Decision ...

  • Incidental changes in orthographic processing in the native language as a function of learning a new language late in life 

    Dunabeitia Landaburu, Jon Andoni; Borragan, Maria; Casaponsa, Aina; Antón, Eneko (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-06-25)
    Acquiring a second alphabetic language also entails learning a new set of orthographic rules and specific patterns of grapheme combinations (namely, the orthotactics). The present longitudinal study aims to investigate whether orthotactic sensitivity changes over the course of a second language learning programme. To this end, a group of Spanish monolingual old adults completed a Basque language ...
  • Cómo ser un adverbio siendo un sustantivo sin ser una preposición 

    Fábregas, Antonio (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-12-18)
    El objetivo de este trabajo es explorar por qué el español y otras lenguas admiten complementos de tiempo construidos como sintagmas nominales sin preposición. Propondremos que el motivo es que la estructura tempoaspectual de la cláusula se define en la espina dorsal del árbol sintáctico, lo cual hace innecesario emplear un elemento relacional para construir ese significado: el sintagma es un argumento ...

  • El microcontexto de las galeras en la jácara de la «Vida y milagros de Montilla» de Quevedo 

    Cabanillas Cardenas, Carlos Fernando (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Después de revisar la estructura esquemática de la jácara quevediana, basada en una serie de microcontextos compuestos por referencias externas y sobre todo literarias previas, me detengo en explicar los versos introductorios de la jácara número 7: «Vida y milagros de Montilla» (Blecua OP, núm. 855, vv. 1-28). El trabajo se centra luego en las referencias históricas que aparecen allí, se sugiere una ...
  • Dutch modality exclusivity norms for 336 properties and 411 concepts 

    Bernabeu, Pablo (Preprint; Manuskript, 2018)
    Part of the toolkit of language researchers is formed of stimuli that have been rated on various dimensions. The current study presents modality exclusivity norms for 336 properties and 411 concepts in Dutch. Forty-two respondents rated the auditory, haptic, and visual strength of these words. Mean scores were then computed, yielding acceptable reliability values. Measures of modality exclusivity ...
  • Frankenstein at 200: Introduction 

    Falke, Cassandra; Hanssen, Jessica Allen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Derek Attridge says of James Joyce that one can never be a first-time reader of that authors work.1 The same can be said of Mary Shelley, particularly with regard to her first novel, Frankenstein: Or The Modern Prometheus. There cannot be many readers who come to it without prior ideas of what to expect. Images of the creature pervade popular culture, and most English readers know Victors tale of ...
  • More refined typology and design in linguistic relativity: The case of motion event encoding 

    Bernabeu, Pablo; Tillman, Richard (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-11)
    Linguistic relativity is the influence of language on other realms of cognition. For instance, the way movement is expressed in a person’s native language may influence how they perceive movement. Motion event encoding (MEE) is usually framed as a typological dichotomy. Path-in-verb languages tend to encode path information within the verb (e.g., ‘leave’), whereas manner-in-verb languages encode ...
  • Alignment and locality in the typology of affixing language games 

    Krämer, Martin; Vogt, Barbara (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-30)
    This paper contributes to the discussion around the (extra-)grammatical status of language games (or ludlings). We collected over 60 games which are based on the affixation of a dummy morpheme, which is infixed and iterated in most cases. While some are obviously reduplicative, closer investigation reveals that all the games involving iterativity function like reduplication. Our optimality-theoretic ...
  • On exceptional stress assignment in Latvian: the case of prefixes 

    Fábregas, Antonio; Krämer, Martin; Vulane, Anna (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-09)
    In this article, we examine some previously understudied exceptions to the generalization that Latvian assigns stress to the left-most syllable in a prosodic word, specifically those that involve prefixation. We will show that these apparent exceptions in stress assignment follow from the internal structural properties of the word and are a result of attaching the prefix outside the domain where ...
  • Review of: M. Baerman (ed.). The Oxford handbook of inflection. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2015. 688 p. ISBN: 978-0-19-959142-8. 

    Nesset, Tore (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Recent years have witnessed a steady stream of linguistics handbooks. The 688-page volume under review is part of a large series published by Oxford University Press involving handbooks on particular theories (e.g. Construction Grammar), subfields (e.g. sociolinguistics), and linguistic phenomena (e.g. compounding and derivational morphology). M. Baerman’s volume is a very valuable addition to the ...
  • Los verbos adimensionales: propiedades y consecuencias 

    Fábregas, Antonio (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-04-29)
    The goal of this article is the analysis of the empirical properties of change of state verbs which do not specifiy lexically the dimension where change operates – such as aumentar ‘increase’, reducir ‘reduce’, acrecentar ‘increase’ –, and also to examine the theoretical consequences that this class has for our understanding of argument structure, the distinction between light and non-light predicates ...
  • Un análisis sintáctico de dos tipos de causante 

    Fabregas, Antonio (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-12-15)
    Este trabajo muestra que, sobre la suposición de que los papeles temáticos deben corresponder a posiciones específicas dentro de una jerarquía sintáctica, deben distinguirse dos tipos de causantes. Combinando pruebas sintácticas y semánticas tomadas de (a) los participios resultativos; (b) las nominalizaciones eventivas y (c) las construcciones causativas se argumenta que hay un causante directo, ...
  • La figure féminine chez Arne Dybfest 

    Barstad, Guri Ellen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012-03-26)
    Arne Dybfest (1862-1892) is a Norwegian author whose female figures seem to have all the usual characteristics of the decadent woman. They are erotic, calculating and dangerous creatures entangling men in their snares and ruining their lives. They are morally, socially and aesthetically transgressive. At the same time, they remind us of the "huldra", a central figure in Scandinavian folklore. This ...
  • Las dos versiones del poema «Fe de erratas» de Juan del Valle y Caviedes. Un apunte textual 

    Cabanillas Cárdenas, Carlos Fernando (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
  • Double perspective narrating time, life and health 

    Wilson, Shawn Stanley; Svalastog, Anna Lydia; Gaski, Harald; Senior, Kate; Chenhall, Richard (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-05-26)
    The goal of this article is to explain the concept of double perspective and the impact this may be having on the health of Indigenous people. In inter-cultural communication, there are sets of meanings that are discernible to anyone, and an extra set of underlying meanings that are only accessible for people who have the cultural knowledge to discern them. These different sets of meanings embody a ...
  • "Race and National Identity in Modernist Anthropology and Jean Toomer's 'The Blue Meridian'" 

    Parks, Justin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020)
    Jean Toomer’s seldom-discussed long poem “The Blue Meridian,” which he drafted over a long period beginning in the early 1920s, proposes an amalgamation of race and national belonging in the new type of the “American.” Seeing himself as a precursor to this new hybrid, Toomer often polemicized against the limiting logic of race. In proposing such an understanding of race in relation to nation, Toomer ...
  • Komplekst 

    Nesset, Tore (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2023-09-08)
    Når akademikarar nytar ordet komplekst, lyt ein vere på vakt. Dete er eit moteord som i mange tilfelle tåkelegg meir enn det klargjer. Det gjeld også i ordskiftet om krigen i Ukraina.
  • En halvåpen dør. NOen betraktninger om stedsforståelse og selvforståelse 

    Greve, Anniken (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-12-02)
    Hvilken betydning har stedet for oss? Gunnar fra Lidarende i Njålssoga gir oss et gløtt inn i Lidarendes betydning for ham. Han er på vei utenlands etter å ha blitt dømt på tinget til å reise. Blir han værende, vil han bli offer for blodhevn. Alt er pakket, og Gunnar er på vei bort fra hjemmet, men hesten som skal ta ham til skipet snubler, slik at Gunnar faller av. Dermed får han kaste et siste ...
