    • 3rd person clitic combinations across Catalan varieties: Consequences of the nature of the dative clitic 

      Cabré, Teresa; Fábregas, Antonio (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-12)
      This article argues that variation in how 3rd person clitic combinations are solved across Catalan varieties depends on the internal morphosyntactic shape of the dative clitic in each variety. We argue that the dative clitic in Valencian Catalan is an inherently case-marked pronominal form (KP), while non Valencian Catalan varieties, that contain a locative clitic, build the dative as a definite ...
    • ABM-utvikling og avvikling. Hva skjedde? 

      Skare, Roswitha; Vårheim, Andreas; Stokstad, Sigrid (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2020)
      ABM-utviklings kortvarige eksistens fortoner seg som en sammenhengende reorganiseringsprosess, skriver forfatterene i denne artikkelen om ABM-utviklings vekst og fall». Artikkelen er en popularisert versjon av den vitenskapelige artikkelen «ABM-utvikling og avvikling: Institusjonell konvergens og divergens i kulturpolitikken.» (Nordisk kulturpolitisk tidsskrift, 2019, 22, 02)
    • 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 ...
    • Acceptable Ungrammatical Sentences, Unacceptable Grammatical Sentences, and the Role of the Cognitive Parser 

      Leivada, Evelina; Westergaard, Marit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-10)
      A search for the terms “acceptability judgment tasks” and “language” and “grammaticality judgment tasks” and “language” produces results which report findings that are based on the exact same elicitation technique. Although certain scholars have argued that acceptability and grammaticality are two separable notions that refer to different concepts, there are contexts in which the two terms are used ...
    • The Acquisition of Clitics in L2 Spanish: Examining Restrictions on Clitic Solidarity. 

      Halloran, Becky; Rothman, Jason (Chapter; Bokkapittel; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      This study examines the mental representation of clitic object pronouns in English L2 Spanish speakers of beginning, intermediate and advanced proficiencies. We present the results of a scalar grammaticality judgment task, which examines knowledge of clitic placement in both Exceptional Case Marking (ECM) verb constructions and non-ECM (finite and modal + infinitival) constructions. Our findings ...
    • The Acquisition of Compositional Definiteness in Norwegian 

      Anderssen, Merete (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2007)
      This paper aims to explain why the prenominal definiteness marker found in modified structures is acquired much later than the suffixal definite article in Norwegian. The coexistence of the two definiteness markers is the result of the double definiteness phenomenon in Norwegian, which occurs in definite structures involving an attributive adjective. A lexical insertion approach to the double ...
    • The acquisition of grade alternation in North Saami 

      Bals, Berit Anne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2004)
      This paper looks at how the North Saami grade alternation system develops in children. Grade alternation is a morphophonological process, in which foot-medial consonants alternate between two forms, the strong and the weak grade. There are qualitative alternations, quantitative alternations and in some patterns, both the length and quality of the consonants alternate. These alternations happen in ...
    • 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, ...
    • The acquisition of past tense in English/Norwegian bilingual children single versus dual mechanisms 

      Jensvoll, Maja Henriette (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2003)
      In a study of three Norwegian/English bilingual siblings, their strategies for acquiring past tense of verbs in both languages were examined. Elicitation tests were performed in both languages and the children’s performance and error patterns were examined. These results were then compared to data from monolingual English and Norwegian speaking children. The results are discussed within the framework ...
    • The acquisition of word order in L2 Norwegian: The case of subject and object shift 

      Anderssen, Merete; Bentzen, Kristine; Busterud, Guro; Dahl, Anne; Lundquist, Bjørn; Westergaard, Marit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-11-13)
      This article reports on a syntactic acceptability judgement study of 59 adult L2/Ln learners of Norwegian and a group of native controls, studying subject and object shift. These constructions involve movement of (mainly) pronominal subjects or objects across negation/adverbs. Both subject shift and object shift display considerable micro-variation in terms of syntax and information structure, ...
    • Adjectival inflection as diagnostic for structural position: inside and outside the Icelandic definiteness domain 

      Pfaff, Alexander Peter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-09-25)
      This article attempts to account for the distribution of Icelandic adjectival inflection in a manner that also captures a problematic case that has not been satisfactorily analyzed in the literature. It is argued that weak inflection is triggered if the adjective is c-commanded by a feature [definite]. Strong inflection occurs precisely if weak inflection is not triggered. This implementation accounts ...
    • Advantages and shortcomings of different perspectives in describing Northern Russian dak. 

      Post, Margje (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2002)
      The word dak is one of several highly frequent particles, used in most Northern Russian and some Siberian dialects. It can occur sentence initially, sentence internally and sentence finally to connect two parts of the discourse, such as words, sentences, and presuppositions. This article describes the advantages and shortcomings of six different perspectives which have been used to describe this ...
    • 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 ...
    • Aksumstelen. Et monuments skiftende betydninger. 

      Whittaker, Helène (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2005)
    • Albert Lange Fliflet. Biografi 

      Viinikka-Kallinen, Anitta (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2019-06-14)
      Filologen, dikteren og oversetteren Albert Lange Fliflet hadde usedvanlige ferdigheter i fremmedspråk. Han kunne over ti språk og oversatte klassisk skjønnlitteratur fra fem ulike språk. Fliflet ga også ut en samling egne aforismer på finsk og foreleste på ungarsk i Ungarn om metrikken i finsk poesi. Verkene han oversatte, var gjerne eldre klassisk litteratur i diktform. Hans største og mest kjente ...
    • Alf Nilsen-Børsskog — The Author Chosen by the Language 

      Viinikka-Kallinen, Anitta (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      This article discusses Alf Nilsen-Børsskog’s four-volume series of novels <i>Elämän jatko</i> [Continuation of life, 2004–2015], seen as the first literary works treating the Kven culture from a native perspective. Nilsen-Børsskog’s novels are analysed as constituting a “counterstory”, a term coined in the postcolonial cultural research paradigm to refer to self-representation. The Kvens have been ...
    • 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 ...
    • Allomorphy: Old Concept, Big Data, New Model 

      Endresen, Anna (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2015-07)
      Many key concepts that modern linguistics operates with were first introduced in the Structuralist Era, the time when linguists believed in clear-cut oppositions and privative features and did not have access to large electronic corpora. Today, when we apply these Structuralist concepts to linguistic data, which is gradient in nature, we encounter a gap between the data and our theory. I argue that ...
