Article
This article considers the post hoc adaptation of a borrowed lexeme throughout its period of existence in Norwegian. The case in point is the Anglicism [jobb] ‘job’ and its derived forms. The aim of this case study is to show how the use and development of this Anglicism is characterised by a discernible pragmatic adaptation after its adoption in t...
Article
An aspect of corpus compilation that poses a particular challenge is the question of how to transcribe orthographically units that are not part of any standardised vocabulary. Among the problematic categories we find voiced pauses, minimal response signals, interjections, certain discourse markers, phonologically reduced forms, colloquialisms and d...
Chapter
This volume brings together key players in discourse variation research to offer original analyses of a wide range of discourse-pragmatic variables, such as 'like', 'innit', 'you get me', and 'at the end of the day'. The authors introduce a range of new methods specifically tailored to the study of discourse-pragmatic variation and change in synchr...
Article
Recent decades of research in linguistics have seen a shift towards empirical methods and an increased use of data from corpora as a basis for making claims about language (Sampson 2005). This trend has made its mark on research on the Nordic languages also, and the current special issue aims to show some of the breadth of research in this field. T...
Article
Previous research on linguistic borrowing has predominantly been concerned with lexis and terminology. This paper explores the notion of pragmatic borrowing, that is, the incorporation of pragmatic and discourse features of a source language into a recipient language. It is argued that a comprehensive account of pragmatic borrowing requires a caref...
Chapter
Corpus linguistics is a long-established method which uses authentic language data, stored in extensive computer corpora, as the basis for linguistic research. Moving away from the traditional intuitive approach to linguistics, which used made-up examples, corpus linguistics has made a significant contribution to all areas of the field. Until very...

This paper gives an account of recent efforts within corpus-based lexicography in Norway. I explore the lexical neology database that has been developed in the Norwegian Newspaper Corpus project (Andersen and Hofland 2012). The aim of the paper is to show how this resource has been used for practical lexicographical work in two dictionary projects...
Article
This study investigates how listenership is manifested in a particular discourse setting, namely simulated business negotiation. The study is based on material recorded on video from a corpus of negotiations between international business students. There is a special focus on the interactional placement of backchannels. This refers to the direction...
Chapter
This chapter describes corpus-based research methods and language processing tools that are used for the systematic study of the influence of English on Norwegian lexis. The tools are developed in connection with the Norwegian Newspaper Corpus (NNC) project. The study presents a survey of the types of phenomena that an Anglicism detection tool shou...
Chapter
A very general way of denoting vagueness in language is by means of nouns with a maximally unspecific meaning, such as thing. In modern Norwegian, there is a range of nouns that can fill this function, notably ting, sak and greie, all of which may to some degree correspond to English thing. This chapter investigates recent trends in the use of such...
Article
The Internet represents a continuum from 'virtually spoken' to 'virtually published' texts. This fact makes it a delightful resource for stylistic variation and for linguistic features that are previously not observed or addressed by linguists. In this paper, I will explore the Internet, as well as a 'real' corpus, the BNC, as linguistic resources...
