  2. In the Department of Literature, Area Studies and European Languages (ILOS), University of Oslo, there is a long-standing tradition of corpus-based contrastive studies, dating back to the early 1990s when the English-Norwegian Parallel Corpus project was initiated by Stig Johansson (of the former Department of British and American Studies). Since then, other projects have followed, contributing to a growing interest in contrastive studies, extending into more and more languages. Fruits of these efforts were in evidence at the departmental seminar that took place on the 15th of May 2013, focusing in its entirety on corpus-based contrastive studies. This thematic issue of Oslo Studies in Language contains the papers presented at that seminar. The papers reveal what a multifaceted field this is, through the diversity of topics covered, the number of languages compared, the types of corpora used, and the different methodological and theoretical frameworks applied. OSLa, volume 6(1), 2014 (294 pages) was edited by Signe Oksefjell Ebeling, Atle Grønn, Kjetil Rå Hauge, and Diana Santos, ILOS, UiO. Corpus-based Studies in Contrastive Linguistics
