Special Issue: The Nordic Word Order Database
Guest Editors: Ida Larsson and Bjørn Lundquist

This special issue presents the Nordic Word Order Database (NWD), an online database with a user-friendly search interface, hosted by The Text Laboratory at the University of Oslo, launched in April 2019 (https://tekstlab.uio.no/nwd). The database contains elicited production data from speakers of all of the North Germanic languages, including several different dialects. The data elicitation is carried out through a carefully controlled production experiment that targets core syntactic phenomena that are known to show variation within and/or between the North Germanic languages, e.g., subject placement, object placement, particle placement and verb placement. The articles present the database and give an overview of the data collection methodology and main results.
