DANISH STUDIES Germanic Languages III. DANISH STUDIES* By BENTE ELswoRTH, Lector in Danish, School of Modern Languages and European History, University of East Anglia LANGUAGE I. GENERAL C. Dollerup, 'Control ofinterlingual mediation in practice. Denmark as a case study', Multilingua, 6, r 987: r 6g-go, has found that such control hardly takes place and argues that since this activity is weakening the norms of correct Danish, it is becoming increasingly difficult to establish standards that translators should strive to observe. Erik Hansen and j0rn Lund, *Sproget her og nu, Gyldendal, 197 pp. 2. HrsTORY oF THE LANGUAGE, MoRPHOLOGY, SYNTAX, AND SEMANTICS K. M. Nielsen, 'Nerre NtJJra-stenens nir;ut kubls', DSt, 82, 1987:5-8, discusses the meaning of the words and rejects E. Molkte's view that the inscription represents a grave-sealing spell (en gravbindingsformel, NT, 1934:429). H. Andersen, 'On the meaning of the name HlewagastiR', NOWELE, Odense U.P., r r: 73-88. The meaning of the name and the appositional word holtijaR on the golden horn of Gallehus is a much debated question. A. translates the inscription as follows: 'I La:ga:st (i.e. guest who offers protection) from a woodland area (Holstein?) horn made'. In Roger Lass, The Shape of English.
