Research Group for Nordic Languages

Main content

Picture illustrating the research of the group

In the Research Group for Nordic Languages, we study Norwegian and the other Nordic languages (Icelandic, Faroese, Danish, and Swedish) from a number of perspectives:

  • Norwegian as a second language
  • Norwegian didactics
  • phonology, grammar, and text linguistics
  • semantics and pragmatics
  • dialects, sociolects, attitudes to language
  • language history and change
  • personal names and place names

The group was established on September 19, 2013, and started its regular activities in January, 2014. It is primarily a forum for the discussion of research by the group members, be it individual or project-based research.
