	title        = {Codifying the Debates of the Riksdag: Towards a Framework for Semi-automatic Annotation of Swedish Parliamentary Discourse},
	abstract     = {This study provides an exploratory attempt to develop a framework for how to semi-automatically
annotate salient topics in Swedish parliamentary debate. The discussion is grounded in the ongoing
digital humanities project SweTerror that studies the terrorism discourse in the Riksdag 1968–2018
through a mixed-methods approach. The paper presents our tentative framework through its three
main categories: metadata, language data and frame data. While the first two categories are mostly
generic and their data could mainly be automatically extracted, the third category is contextual and
requires manual interpretation. We discuss the design of the latter through the theoretical concept
of ‘framing’ and illustrate the framework’s overall principles through a case study of utterances in
the debates 1968–1970 concerning terrorism. We conclude by suggesting that it may be more
generally applicable for studies of parliamentary debates in HSS research if further modified for the
particular research purposes. },

	abstract     = {This article addresses the question of how and why verbs combine in complex verb constructions in Dutch. We discuss introspective data reported in reference grammars and add evidence from corpus data to uncover the systematic ways in which Dutch verbs combine. Our analysis shows that verbs expressing meanings such as tense, aspect, modality and evidentiality are organized in a semantic scope hierarchy; that is, some verb meanings systematically have scope over others but not the other way round. We argue that this scope hierarchy reflects hierarchies of functional categories, elaborated in both functional and generative frameworks.},

	title        = {In search of subjective meaning in Swedish pseudocoordination},
	abstract     = {This study provides a discussion of the development of subjective meaning associated with the motion-verb pseudocoordination gå och V 'go/walk and V' and the posture-verb pseudocoordination sitta och V 'sit and V', using historical and present-day linguistic data. It is claimed that an interpretation in terms of item-based analogy and entrenchment of frequent meaning clusters is the most plausible analysis for the development of subjective (and pejorative) meaning associated with gå och V. The study of sitta och V is preliminary, but the results indicate that the subjective meaning of this construction is less entrenched than that of the gå och V construction and that the subjective overtone of subjectivity may be a result of the combination of the social/cultural meaning of the posture and certain intrinsically pejorative verbs, together with certain locatives.},
