NorDiaSyn - Project Information
 
 

 

 
 


The NorDiaSyn project (2009-2013) is funded by
The Research Council of Norway. See excerpt from the project application here.

 

The work on the Norwegian part of Nordic Dialect Corpus and Syntax Database started already in 2007 with support from The Faculty of Humanities at the University of Oslo, The University of Oslo, NordForsk and NORMS (NOS HS).

Norsk Ordbok 2014 has financed the transcriptions from the Dialect Archive at the University of Oslo.
