  • Multi-word echoes of English: Visible vs. invisible Anglicisms in Danish

    • Authors: Henrik Gottlieb
      Abstract: The focus of this article is the developments in contemporary Danish of direct vis-à-vis indirect borrowing strategies regarding English expressions. In order to distinguish direct borrowings of such items from codeswitches, the author presents a number of approaches found in the existing literature and suggests an operational definition of codeswitching. Eight scenarios involving the adoption and/or translation of English multi-word or polymorphemic expressions are presented, and the trajectories over three decades of forty-four Danish Anglicisms representing all scenarios are investigated. The basis for this empirical research is the gigantic Danish text archive Infomedia, and the results show the relative success of ‘invisible’ multi-word and polymorphemic expressions: Anglicisms using all-Danish material but calquing their English etymons and thus representing Anglo-American concepts in Danish disguise.

  • Ufrivilligt barnløs i et samfund, der fokuserer på

    • Authors: Madina Zaman, Kamilla Jepsen, Charlotte Glintborg
      Abstract: This study explores how fertility treatment without children influences a woman's identity construction. This study draws on a social constructionist perspective, where a narrative approach creates the framework for exploring identity construction. The study design is qualitative. Six Danish women were interviewed. The empirical data is analyzed through Michael Bamberg’s narrative small story approach to identity. The findings reveal that there are very few alternative identities to the mother identity in Danish society. Thus, loss of the possibility to be included in the biological mother identity has emotional consequences such as grief, exclusion, anxiety, anger, frustration, envy, shame, fear, etc. The findings are discussed in light of current master narratives in society and may contribute to an enhanced understanding of identity construction in women who cannot have biological children.

  • On liberation of English from purist pundithood through nativization in

    • Authors: Shankar Dewan
      Abstract: This qualitative content analysis paper attempted to explore the linguistic, creative, and pragmatic nativization employed by creative Nepali authors of English in their writings. I purposively selected three anthologies of stories, four novels, eight essays, one newspaper article, and four news stories/reports. Then, I went through the contents, examined the language used in those texts, noted down the unique features of Nepali English, and thematized them under linguistic, creative, and pragmatic nativization to make the analysis more explicit. I found that the creative Nepali authors of English intentionally nativized English to convey a distinct sense of Nepaliness and to deconstruct the so-called sacred cow model of English. Findings reveal that policymakers and pedagogues need to shift from the monomodel approach to the functional polymodel approach that only values the features of Nepali English as innovations, rather than errors.

  • Features of the grammar of Cameroon English and Nigerian English: Corpus

    • Authors: Victor Fokam Tchoupo
      Abstract: Cameroon English and Nigerian English are varieties of English which result from the spread of the English language around the world. These two new Englishes, which have grown in neighbouring countries, are gradually being described for subsequent codification. In the domain of grammar, several studies have been carried out to highlight the features that characterise each variety. However, analytical comparisons have hardly been made to determine how similar or different they can be, given that they are both categorised as West African Englishes, their populations share much in common and they communicate on a daily basis. This paper, therefore, proposes a comparative and contrastive description of the grammar of these varieties. The review of previous studies and the exploration of the Corpus of Cameroon English (CCE) and the Nigerian component of the International Corpus of English (ICE-Nigeria) reveal that both varieties are more similar than different, and features of indigenisation are attested at the morphological as well as syntactic levels. For the sake of simplification, and failure to manage syntactic traces (Mbangwana and Sala 2009), questionsand passivisation are restructured, and pronoun reduplication is resorted to fill in the empty slot created by a displaced constituent. While subjectless and verbless sentences and the reflexive use of reciprocal pronouns are specific to Nigerian English, when-adverbials, that-adverbials, and that-complements of ‘abuse verbs’ rather characterise the Cameroonian variety.
