We are seeking a linguist or lexicographer, with native abilities in
Bokmaal Norwegian, strong computer skills, fluency in written English,
and a detail-oriented personality, to work on an evaluation of a
lexicon in Bokmaal Norwegian. We estimate the work at approximately
40-60 hours. We have a detailed template of evaluation tasks
(e.g. generate a test set of 25 foreign words commonly used in
Norwegian, and check them against the lexicon to see if they are
present; if not, determine if omissions are 'one-off' errors or
constitute a pattern). There are approximately 25 such tasks,
including coverage of such areas as specialized technical vocabulary,
neologisms, potentially offensive words, compounds, inflected forms,
etc. The results are to be written up into a report in English. In
addition, we'll require a summary of the work in a few different

on a Windows PC with Access 97 or above, Excel, Word, and internet
