Store Norske Leksikon
STORE NORSKE LEKSIKON, abbreviated SNL, is a Norwegian language (bokmål ) encyclopedia . The SNL was created in 1978 when the two publishing houses Aschehoug and Gyldendal merged their encyclopedias and created the company Kunnskapsforlaget . The name translates into English as Great Norwegian encyclopedia. Up until 1978 the two publishing houses of Aschehoug and Gyldendal , Norway's two largest, had published Aschehougs konversasjonsleksikon (no) and Gyldendals konversasjonsleksikon (no), respectively. The respective first editions were published in 1907–1913 (Aschehoug) and 1933–1934 (Gyldendal). The slump in selling paperbased encyclopedias around the turn of the 21st century hit the Kunnskapsforlaget hard, but a fourth edition of the paperbased encyclopedia was finally secured by a grant of 10 million Norwegian kroner from the foundation Fritt Ord in 2003

Viola
The VIOLA (/viˈoʊlə/ ; Italian pronunciation: ) is a string instrument that is bowed or played with varying techniques. It is slightly larger than a violin and has a lower and deeper sound. Since the 18th century it has been the middle or alto voice of the violin family , between the violin (which is tuned a perfect fifth above) and the cello (which is tuned an octave below). The strings from low to high are typically tuned to C3, G3, D4, and A4 . In the past, the viola varied in size and style as did its names. The Italians often used the term: "viola da braccio " meaning literally: 'of the arm'. "Brazzo" was another Italian word referring to the viola which the Germans adopted in the form: "Bratsche". The French had their own names: "Cinquiesme" was a small viola, "Haute Contre" was a large viola, and "Taile" meant "Tenor". In the modern era, the French use the term "Alto", a reference to its range

It was developed by the National Academy of the Korean Language from 1995 and was released to the public on 7 July 2000 by South Korea's Ministry of Culture and Tourism in Proclamation No
