TitleOn Compiling a Norwegian Academic Vocabulary List
AbstractIn the last few years, several dictionaries of academic vocabulary have been developed, based on automatic analysis of academic corpora. Our presentation documents the first attempt to create a Norwegian Academic Vocabulary list (NAV) for the Norwegian Bokmål variety. This work is part of the Nordic project LUNAS (Language Use in Nordic Academic Settings) where the goal is to develop academic vocabulary lists and dictionaries for the Scandinavian languages. Part of the goal is to support Nordic language use in academic work instead of English, and to maintain each and every Nordic language also as a full-fledged academic language.
