Con­struc­tion­al approach­es to Nordic lan­guages
BuchcoverThis vol­ume presents eight stud­ies of lin­guis­tic phe­nom­e­na in Nordic lan­guages (notably Dan­ish, Nor­we­gian, and Swedish) from a con­struc­tion gram­mar per­spec­tive. The con­tri­bu­tions both deep­en and widen the focus of con­struc­tion gram­mar applied to Nordic lan­guages by deal­ing with a vari­ety of top­ics, such as the con­struc­tion­al net­work, pseu­do-coor­di­na­tion, addi­tion­al lan­guage learn­ing and emerg­ing mul­ti­lin­gual­ism, pro­to­typ­i­cal seman­tics in argu­ment struc­ture con­struc­tions, and domain-spe­cif­ic dis­course and lan­guage behav­ior. The vol­ume show­cas­es the vibrant research activ­i­ty with­in part of the con­struc­tion gram­mar com­mu­ni­ty deal­ing with Nordic lan­guages, con­tribut­ing to the knowl­edge about the struc­ture, use and learn­ing of these lan­guages, as well as to the field of con­struc­tion gram­mar as a whole.

Saint­hood, scrip­to­ria, and sec­u­lar eru­di­tion in medieval and ear­ly mod­ern Scan­di­navia: essays in hon­our of Kirsten Wolf
BuchcoverWhile medieval Ice­land has long been cel­e­brat­ed and stud­ied for its rich tra­di­tion of ver­nac­u­lar lit­er­a­ture, in recent years atten­tion has increas­ing­ly been paid to oth­er areas of Old Norse-Ice­landic schol­ar­ship, in par­tic­u­lar the pro­duc­tion of hagio­graph­i­cal and reli­gious lit­er­a­ture. At the same time, a sim­i­lar renais­sance has arisen in oth­er fields, in par­tic­u­lar Old Norse-Ice­landic pale­og­ra­phy, philol­o­gy, and man­u­script stud­ies, thanks to the devel­op­ment of the so-called ‘new philol­o­gy’, and its impact on our under­stand­ing of man­u­scripts. Cen­tral to these devel­op­ments has been the schol­ar­ship of Kris­ten Wolf, one of the fore­most author­i­ties in the fields of Old Norse-Ice­landic hagiog­ra­phy, bib­li­cal lit­er­a­ture, pale­og­ra­phy, cod­i­col­o­gy, tex­tu­al crit­i­cism, and lex­i­cog­ra­phy, who is the hon­o­rand of this vol­ume.
Tak­ing Prof. Wolf’s own research inter­ests as its inspi­ra­tion, this vol­ume takes an unprece­dent­ed inter­dis­ci­pli­nary approach to the theme of Saint­hood, Scrip­to­ria, and Sec­u­lar Eru­di­tion in Medieval and Ear­ly Mod­ern Scan­di­navia in order both to cel­e­brate Wolf’s pro­found career, and to illus­trate the many ways in which these seem­ing­ly dif­fer­ent fields over­lap and con­verse with each oth­er in impor­tant and pro­duc­tive ways. From sculp­ture to sagas, and from skaldic verse to tex­tu­al edi­tions and the trans­la­tion of hith­er­to unpub­lished works, the con­tri­bu­tions gath­ered here offer new and impor­tant insights into our knowl­edge of medieval and ear­ly mod­ern Scan­di­na­vian lit­er­a­ture, his­to­ry, and cul­ture.
