Specialty Areas: Cognitive Science; Language Acquisition; Bilingualism
The goal of this project is to study the linguistic and cognitive aspects of
bilingualism in Norway (applying both to standard language use and multiple
dialects). The Norwegian context offers exciting opportunities for research
in this area, which have been so far, largely unexplored. This research is of
special interest both for international research on multilingualism addressing
situations of closely related languages, and even more so for Norwegian
research and the societal impact of using multiple codes on a daily basis. The
focus of the project is largely experimental and the aim is to collect and
analyse reliable empirical data both from the domain of adult language use and
child language development. The project comes under the broader research
agenda of the Experimental and Theoretical Approaches to Language (ETHL)
research group, and The Language Acquisition and Language Processing Lab group
at the Department of Language and Literature.
Applicants are invited to submit a 5 page project proposal outlining a
research agenda for experimental research on either adult language competence
in biliteracy/multiple dialects, or from the point of view of acquisition. The
successful applicant should have a PhD in linguistics/psycholinguistics. Good
communication and networking skills are essential. The candidates must have an
ability to work independently, as well as work in a team. The working language
will be Scandinavian and English. Knowledge of Norwegian is an asset, but not
required. The project proposal should contain the following: i) an outline of
the idea that the applicant wants to pursue, ii) brief descriptions of the
relevant theoretical background and methodological aspects of the proposed
project, iii) a clear statement of how the project will contribute to
addressing the research agenda of ETHL (http://www.ntnu.edu/isl/ethl) /LALP
