Linguists connected more or less with the University of Oslo offer a number of perspectives on the verb in cognitive linguistics, most describing different aspects of Norwegian, which had not been investigated at such a scale within cognitive linguistics before. Covering both morphological and constructional aspects of verbs, they discuss problems of morphological segmentation in building blocks or network relations, the Norwegian and Russian flexive-middle-passive systems and cognitive grammar, and other topics. The dozen papers were selected and rewritten from presentations at a June 1998 conference in Gran, Norway. c. Book News Inc.
