NORW 302 Advanced Composition & Conversation

This course deals with conversation and composition writing in advanced Norwegian.  In order to have something to write and speak about, we will read a number of Norwegian texts.  This is also, of course, an excellent way to learn new vocabulary and language usage forms.
Our texts will be written in bokmål, nynorsk, and the older riksmål. We will also do some shorter in-class work on landsmål, Swedish, and Danish. The goal will be to create a broad and adaptive comprehensive strategy that will enable you to function in the often polyphonic world of Scandinavian speech and letters.
