    A Study of the Verb System in the Sistani Dialect of Persian2010In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 59, 5-44 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Sistani dialect, though a dialect of Persian, displays its own manifestations of morpho-syntactic categorieson the verb form. The purpose of this article is to investigate the verb system of the Sistani dialectas spoken in Sistan based on linguistic fieldwork carried out in the village Sekuhe (locally known as Sakvâ)and provide a synchronic description of its verb structure and the realization of verbal morpho-syntacticcategories including agreement, tense, aspect, mood, and voice. The oral texts used as linguistic data,which compose the corpus for describing and analysing the given morpho-syntactic categories for verbsin the Sistani dialect, were extracted from the free speech of 10 males and 10 females between the ages of7 and 85 with different social backgrounds living in Sekuhe. The findings of the present study show thatthe Sistani dialect employs what are basically its own morpho-syntactic elements to manifest agreement,tense, aspect, and voice in its verb system.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I discuss the translation and commentary on the Song of Songs by the Karaite Japheth ben Eli (died ca 1005). The point of departure is the manuscript Uppsala O Nova 791, which was used by Paul Achilles Jung, the father of Carl Gustav Jung, as the basis for his dissertation in 1867 and later acquired by Uppsala University Library in 1982.

    The Gnomic qatal2013In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 61, 5-53 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present paper offers a cognitive and typological approximation to the problem of the gnomic qatal. It demonstrates that the gnomic sense of the qatal can be chained to the remaining semantic potential of the gram by making use of certain typological templates or universals, i.e. by so-called gnomic branches of the anterior path. Given that, from a cross-linguistic perfective, certain subtypes of a present perfect (inclusive,frequentative, and experiential perfects, as well as an anti-perfect) naturally generate gnomic extensions (following a development referred to as “gnomic branches”), that the dominant portion of the semantic potential of the qatal covers the domain of a perfect, and finally that all the examples of the BH gnomic qatal (if derived from active roots) may be viewed as generated in prototypical perfect contexts (the gnomic use of the qatal stems from its use as an inclusive, frequentative, experiential, and anti-perfect),the gnomic value of the gram may be cognitively (both conceptually and diachronically) chained to the remaining sphere of its semantic network by employing the “gnomic branch” linkage. In this manner,the gnomic value ceases to be aberrant and, on the contrary, becomes a fully rational component of the semantic potential of the gram. As a result, we propose a model (a map) that in a more consistent and more holistic manner represents the semantics of the entire qatal category; it accounts for all the senses, the gnomic values included.

    Stress-induced Vowel Lengthening and Harmonization in Kumzari2013In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 61, 54-58 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the morphophonological effects of four suffixes on noun stem vowels in Kumzari: thesimple plural suffix -an, the existential plural clitic -in, the definite suffix -ō, and the indefinite suffix -ē.Two of the suffixes (-an and -ō) have an effect on the stress placement of their host stem. This results inan array of alternations which may be generalized as lengthening of the stem’s final vowel and, in the caseof -ō, harmonization of the stem’s final vowel to that of the suffix. The remaining two suffixes (the clitic-in and the suffix -ē) are included in this study to emphasize the role of stress placement in vowel alternationsin Kumzari: although -in and -ē are segmentally and semantically analogous to the first two suffixes– and, in the case of -ē, morphosyntactically equivalent – they have no effect on stress placement and consequentlydo not precipitate vowel lengthening or harmonization.

    Acquiring Persian Object Marking: Balochi learners of L2 Persian2013In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 61, 59-89 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the second language acquisition of Persian object marking by 237 nativeBalochi-speaking children from age eight to eleven. The combination of Balochi and Persian has not beenstudied from an acquisitional perspective, although it widely occurs in southeastern Iran. This paperstudies the second language (L2) development of direct and indirect object marking after two and threeyears of exposure to Persian at school, vs. a control group of 133 monolingual native Persian children ofsimilar age and socio-economic background. Beginning learners predominantly use non-targetlike objectmarking constructions reminiscent of Balochi, whilst there is a clear trend towards Persian-style objectmarking in the more advanced learners. These findings suggest that L2 learners initially transfer core aspectsof their native grammar to their interlanguage Persian. The picture is complicated by the existenceof differential object marking in Balochi and Persian and the somewhat different writing patterns of nativeand non-native learners.

    Resistance in the postcolonial Hindi literary field: Mohan Dās by Uday Prakāś2012In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 60, 9-19 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reads Uday Prakāś’s Mohan Dās as a multi-layered story of resistance. From the thematic point of view, it is a story of marginality, featuring a young Dalit resisting the oppression of the hegemonic society. It is also a story of multiple identities – or of a total loss of identity. The text resists gender categorisation. There is continuous meta-textual play: Mohan Dās reminds us of the historical Mahatma Gandhi not only through his name (the Mahatma’s given name is ‘Mohandas Karamchand’), but also concerning his ideas and actions (persisting in his search for truth, never resorting to violence). Other fictional characters in Mohan Dās obviously refer to the Hindi literary field, like Gajānan Mādhav Muktibodh and Śamśer Bahādur Siṃh. As Mohan Dās was first published in the literary magazine Haṃs in the Premcand anniversary issue (August 2005), and Uday Prakāś often refers to Hindi authors of the past in his works, it is possible to analyse the text as calling for an alternative canon in Hindi literature, one that resists the mainstream. Mohan Dās can be seen as an example of postmodern Hindi literature in which the focus is not on the urban middle class, but on the rural and subaltern India.

    He addressed the Kayānian king: “I am a prophet!”: The Image of Zoroaster in the Dāstān-e Goshtāsp (Tale of Goshtāsp)2012In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 60, 117-139 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to examine the image of the ancient Iranian prophet Zoroaster in the Shāhnāma based on a closed reading of the story about the Kayānian king Goshtāsp written by Daqiqi (and continued by Ferdousi). There has so far been no comprehensive treatment of Daqiqi’s rendering of Zoroaster and the founding of the first Zoroastrian community. This lack of scholarly research is surprising given the importance of Daqiqi in the transmission of the ancient Iranian cultural and religious heritage (illustrated in his pioneering role in the creation of the Shāhnāma of Ferdousi) and the uniqueness of his work, which constitutes the only long poem that has been preserved from the Sāmānid and pre-Sāmānid period (even though extant verses of some early poets suggest the existence of several other epic works). As Daqiqi relates, it was in Goshtāsp’s reign that Zoroaster introduced his religion in the Iranian cultural sphere, with the support of the king’s son Esfandiār. Goshtāsp was forced to go to war to defend the faith against king Arjāsp of Turān and suffered the loss of his brother Zarēr in battle. These are celebrated events in the early history of Zoroastrianism that have been expounded upon throughout the centuries in different versions.

    Q&A on Sunny Singh’s short story A Cup Full of Jasmine Oil2012In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 60, 83-96 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With its rich semantic texture and evocative imagery Sunny Singh’s short story A Cup Full of Jasmine Oil invites various readings. The story tells how a young girl is both attracted and confused when her grandmother’s neighbor, who lives in a lesbian relationship, massages her skull and oils her curly hair. When the grandmother at one point forbids the oiling sessions, the girl suddenly becomes aware of hidden meanings and intuitions associated with this practice.

    The essay juxtaposes a reading of the story from a more conventional western perspective with an interpretation from the point of the Indian system of aesthetics based on rasa. From this double perspective, it discusses various stylistic and thematic aspects of the story. Diverging interpretations are presented of the role of the characters, the functionality of their characterization, and the use of description and suggestion to evoke the semantic framework of the story.

    The juxtaposition of two readings was prompted by a discussion with the author during a conference panel on rebellion in modern Indian literature and film. To prevent the impression of imposing a “scholarly” reading on a more “intuitive” reading, the essay continues the dialogue with the author and invites her to react to the reading and discuss the notion of an “Indian” aesthetic model, its relevance for her writing, and current critical approaches to modern Indian fiction. In her response, Sunny Singh explains how the theme of the story was prompted by her perception of the sharing of knowledge of sexuality and intimacy in a tightly-knit Indian social context. The discussion with the author extends beyond the specific story, and she presents her views on how her scholarly knowledge of modern Indian culture stimulates her in her creative work. Thereby, it aptly frames the exploration of a reading of A Cup Full of Jasmine Oil from the perspective of Indian literary aesthetics.

    On the use of the terms "(anti-)Semitic" and "(anti-) Zionist" in modern Middle Eastern discourse2012In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 61, no Supplement, 13-19 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Just as political and cultural discourse in general, modern Middle Eastern discourse is at times characterized by a great deal of hostility, not only between different states or religious denominations, but also state-internally among various ethnic, political, or religious groups. This short article focuses on the use of the attributes "Semitic" and "Zionist," as well as their negative counterparts "anti-Semitic" and "anti-Zionist," respectively, in examples of both Arabic and Israeli critical to hostile discourse. The focus of the discussion will lie on how the original meanings of these terms, especially in their negated forms, tend to be distorted in engaged political and cultural discourse.

    A Treatise from the Post-scholastic Era of Persian Writings on Music Theory: Resālah-e Musiqi by Neẓām-al-din Aḥmad Gilāni2007In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. LVI, 65-75 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Persian writings on theory of music has passed through phases of change during its evolution. One of these phases began at the beginning of the 16th century with the abandonment of scientific Greek-Arabic influenced writing on music theory and the emergence of a new approach to the subject. This phase, which can be labelled the post-scholastic period, was one of the most productive phases of the genre and many tracts and treatises were written during that period. One of the works from this era which come down to us is a concise tract by Neẓām-al-din Aḥmad Gilāni. In this article, the author and the opus are first introduced, then a critical edition of the text and an English translation of the text are provided.

    Life, As I See It: A Typology of the Post-Revolutionary Persian Novel Written by Women2012In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 60, 140-150 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1979 Revolution in Iran, the number of women novelists has increased explosively. One remarkable feature of most post-Revolutionary novels by Iranian women is their great sensitivity towards women’s issues and gender relations, but not all of these novels are of this nature. Novels that focus on social discourses have also been written by women in post-Revolutionary Iran. Nor do all of the novels written by women challenge the traditional institutions or reflect a protest against the situation of Iranian women in post-Revolutionary Iran. The purpose of this paper is to present a typology of the Persian post-Revolutionary novels written by women and the different paths they have taken.

    The usage of singular verbs for inanimate plural subjects in Persian2007In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. LVI, 77-101 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the usage of the singular verb for inanimate plural subjects diachronically as well as synchronically in order to find out whether this feature is on its way out of Modern Persian or not. The focus of the study is on Modern Persian, but it was found necessary to investigate the historical usage of singular verbs for inanimate plural subjects in Middle Persian and Classical Persian as well.

    An Elusive Particle in Persian: The Use of Magar inTārikh-e Beyhaqi2013In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 61, 90-106 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Morphologically, magar is made up of ma+agar, which literally means “not+if”. It fulfils several syntacticand pragmatic functions which have shifted over the course of time. This paper focuses on the use of magarin Tārikh-e Beyhaqi (11th century). The study will be conducted within the framework of a functional-structural approach with a pragmatic orientation. We argue that magar is an elusive particle, the precisesyntactic function of which is governed by the context. We also argue that some instances of magarfulfil a pragmatic function that fits into the theory of indirect speech acts.

    One Epos and Some Ruckus: In Search of Lost Sources of the Shāhnāme2010In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 59, 193-206 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mohl, an early editor and translator of the Shāhnāme, began the discussion on Ferdowsi’s sources in the Shāhnāme in 1878. From that time until now, it has been one of main issues of discussion among expertson the Shāhnāme and Iranian culture. One can find various theories on Ferdowsi’s sources in the numerous works and articles which are published ever so often. One of the latest works in this field is Kumiko Yamamoto’s book The Oral Background of Persian Epics: Storytelling and Poetry. In the present article, first, various theories about Ferdowsi’s sources are classified in three groups with reference to their proponents, and then each of these theories is critically and briefly analysed. After a detailed introduction to Kumiko Yamamoto’s work, it is evaluated in view of the different theories proposed for the sources of the Shāhnāme. The present author favours the theory of both oral and written sources in the genesis of the Shāhnāme, and, in light of this, some strengths as well as weaknesses of this work are discussed in this extended review.

    Qualified “heterodoxy” in a 17th century Ḥurūfī muḳaddime2012In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 60, 151-162 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The contribution discusses a previously unpublished Ottoman Ḥurūfī prose text, the “Preface (muḳaddime) to the theology of Sayyid Nesīmī” (dated 1623/1624). The text reflects a variety of Ḥurūfī doctrine that is based on a system of twenty-nine “words” (lafẓ). It is interpreted as belonging to a late form of Ḥurūfism, which both in content and practice diverged from the original Ḥurūfī sect of the 14th–15th centuries. The muḳaddime’s particular emphasis on ritual prayer (ṣalāt, namāz) is interpreted as an effort to address the dominating conservative circles of the Ottoman Empire. At the same time, the muḳaddime is overtly critical of the Ottoman political system, including the sultan himself. In this regard, it reveals the cooperation of mystic currents with the political opposition. In a broader perspective, it is contextualized with the almost contemporary treatise of Muṣṭafā Ḳoči Beg.

    The Prosodization of Function Words in Persian2013In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 61, 126-137 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the prosodic structure of weak (stressless) function words in Persian within the framework of Prosodic Phonology. Weak function words in Persian are prosodic clitics that form phrases with the material following them (proclitics) or preceding them (enclitics). So far, only the prosody of enclitics has been studied in the literature. The present study proposes that, in Persian, enclitics are affixalclitics, while proclitics are free clitics. These proposals contribute to the findings in Prosodic Phonologythat prosodic categories can in fact be recursive and non-exhaustive.

    Et Tammuz-relief i Mar Jacob-klostret nær Edessa2012In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 61, no Supplement, 1-12 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the mountains ca. 7 km southwest of Edessa (Sanliurfa), there is a complex of ruins called Deir Yakup, containing a mausoleum and a monastery of Mar Jacob. Among the ruins, there is a relief showing the shape of a lying person flanked by a woman of the well-known Phoenician-Syrian motif: "The Mourning Venus." According to Syriac literature the cult of Balti (Venus)-Tammuz continued long into the Christian era and the motif of the relief clearly suggests that the ruins at Deir Yakup were a scene of a local Tammuz cult.
