Could you please name the address for this mailing list? The eGroups
linguistics search engine seems to be out of function.

From what I have understood this group are for those who wish to
learn Norwegian. My intentions are to give a rather scientific view
on the language. In the files section I will provide essays on
grammatical elements that aren't given any explanation in grammars on
the Norwegian language. I will also write etymologies where I will
trace many verbs back to the Proto-IndoEuropean language. My views
are in general untraditional. This way, I will try to start a
discussion questioning the current trends in the Norwegian
authorities language policy. I will provide a description on the
Norwegian language from a neutral basis.
