Abstract: Tania E. Strahan:
Discourse functions of the specific demonstrative in Norwegian

Pronouns may be used as demonstratives in all Norwegian dialects, however
their semantics and discourse functions vary. In the Oslo dialect, a
pronominal determiner indicates some kind of psychological distance
between the speaker and the referent (Johannessen 2006), while here I show
that in Sunnhordlandsdialekt (West Norwegian/Hordaland), the pronominal
determiner indicates a specific referent. The data examined here includes
posts in online blogs and forums, as well as native speaker judgements on
appropriate determiner usage. Six different discourse uses are identified, and
an analysis within the Lexical-Functional Grammar syntactic framework is
also suggested.
