Edited By: Tor Anders Åfarli
Fufen Jin
URL: http://butikk.tapirforlag.no/en/node/1232
Description:

As globalization and the enhanced international role of China make contact
between China and Norway deeper and more frequent, problems of language -
being an essential part of the infrastructure of society - are brought to
the fore.

This book focuses on the grammatical structure of Mandarin Chinese and
Norwegian from a comparative and acquisitional point of view, also
investigating the role of English as an international lingua franca
mediating between the two.
