Work Package 3

Norwegian-English bilinguals                  

Leader: Professor Merete Anderssen
Other participants: Kristine Bentzen, Terje Lohndal, Björn Lundquist, Marit Westergaard


WP description (from the project proposal, slightly revised)
In addition to the dense corpus of a Norwegian-English bilingual child, this subproject will use data from Norwegian-American heritage speakers collected for the NorAmDiaSyn project at the University of Oslo, making direct comparisons between acquisition and attrition data on grammatical gender and various word order phenomena. The data from the bilingual child corpus will be compared to English corpora in CHILDES and recently collected Norwegian dense corpora, while the Norwegian-American adult data will be compared to Norwegian dialect data in the Nordic Dialect Corpus (Johannessen et al. 2009).
