Metaphor

Learner language

Bakgrunn

I am a professor of English as a second/foreign language, and currently work as the Vice Dean for Research at the  Faculty of Education in Hamar/Lillehammer. You will also find me  here and on  Twitter.

My research interests are metaphor and learner language, with a focus on Norwegian L2 English, as well as L2 Norwegian. I published a monograph entitled  ‘ Metaphors in Learner English‘ in 2013, dealing with metaphors produced in the written English of Norwegian students, as well as methodological issues concerning the Metaphor Identification Procedure (MIPVU). I was also responsible for collecting the Norwegian version of the  LINDSEI corpus (spoken learner English). The interviews and transcriptions are now completed and have been sent to Louvain to be included in the second edition of LINdSEI. I have carried out some preliminary research on the data on communication strategies, prepositions, and phrasal verbs. I am currently involved in compiling the  TraWL corpus (Tracking Written Learner Language), a longitudinal corpus of English texts written by Norwegian pupils aged 10 – 19. I am currently researching metaphors written by L2 learners of Norwegian, from texts collected in the  Norwegian Second Language Corpus.

I am also interested in the ‘language of betrayal’, metaphors produced by survivors of relationship abuse when they discuss their experiences in an online discussion forum. In addition, I research metaphor in other types of discourse, such as career guidance videos, American church marquees, the New Year’s Eve speeches of the Norwegian king and Danish queen, etc. Further, methodological issues connected to metaphor research are a concern of mine, especially (linguistic) metaphor identification and valid statistical analysis. Together with A.G. Dorst, T. Krennmayr, and W.G. Reijnierse, I edited a volume entitled “Metaphor identification in multiple languages: MIPVU around the world” (accepted for publication at John Benjamins).

I am the review editor of the scientific journal “ Metaphor and the Social World“, published by John Benjamins.
