    Abstract [en]

    Narratives in bilingual, intergenerational conversations offer an important site for examining how age identity is verbally constructed when language comprehension itself is also periodically in focus. This study investigates three conversational extracts of an older speaker (one woman, age 86) and her much younger friends (two women, mid-30s), who speak Swedish and American English. Analyses of the Swedish conversations locate where the older speaker accommodates to her listeners by providing glosses and sufficient details to be able to launch and sustain her narratives, while she simultaneously positions herself as older through themes concerning the distant past. The younger interlocutors nonetheless actively seek to accommodate to the discourse structure established by the older speaker with their responses. The article presents a taxonomy of rhetorical patterns that the elder speaker uses to accentuate the age difference between herself and the younger speakers.

    Teaching undergraduate academic writing in Sweden: Notes on a new book with developmental and sociolinguistic perspectives2011In: Ibérica, ISSN 1139-7241, E-ISSN 2340-2784, Vol. 22, p. 163-172Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Thinking and Writing in Academic Contexts: A University Companion (Falk, 2011), is designed to help students, especially those with L2 (or incipient L2) English, increase their proficiency levels in composing essays and short research papersin English. The book also aims to raise students’ awareness of the typical expectations academic readers have when they consider the quality level of a text. This research note first provides a brief description of the language proficiency levels of incoming undergraduate students who study English in Sweden. Spoken proficiency in English usually ranges from satisfactory to excellent among incoming Swedish students, but these undergraduates typically need support and feedback on their texts so that their writing gains sophistication in language, structure, and content. The theoretical portion of this research note highlights some sociolinguistic perspectives concerning the linguistic development of young adults relating to the “developmental imperative” (Eckert, 2000), the “linguistic market” or “marketplace dialect”(Chambers, 2009), and the dynamic continuum of standard English (Wolfram& Schilling-Estes, 2006; see also Karstadt, 2002; Falk, 2005). The second half of the research note provides a brief synopsis of the chapters in the book; it also mentions some of the approaches that are taken to share advice withreaders.

    The Linguistic Landscapes of Swedish Heritage Cookbooks in the American Midwest, 1895-20052017In: Studia Neophilologica, ISSN 0039-3274, E-ISSN 1651-2308, Vol. 89, no 2, p. 261-286Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recipe names and other elements in the discourse of cookbooks reveal important clues about language contact in communities settled by immigrants. In the case of cookbooks printed in Swedish-American networks, a number of recipe collections have been periodically updated and re-published. Linguists who tap into this printed material can thus carry out longitudinal discourse analysis of the names of recipes and of menu items to be served on a smorgasbord. The present study examines cookbooks produced in selected localities and reports on linguistic patterns found in the cookbooks published in two small towns in central Kansas as well as in the urban centers of Kansas City and Chicago. The data are analyzed for evidence that Swedish, Heritage Swedish, and English have co-existed in varying proportions across the time period of study, which is 1895 to 2005, and across geographical space in the American Midwest. Looking at the phenomena of heritage as expressed linguistically, and to some extent to be understood notionally in the cookbook data, we describe the linguistic landscapes which have shaped the discourse of Swedish-American homes and entertainment practices. We employ the theoretical framework of enregisterment in order to account for how volunteer cookbook committees create local authenticity.

    Heritage Swedish, English, and Textual Space in Rural Communities of Practice2018In: Selected Proceedings of the 8th Workshop on Immigrant Languages in the Americas (WILA 8) / [ed] Jan Heegård Petersen; Karoline Kühl, Somerville, MA: Cascadilla Press, 2018, p. 44-54Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present study is to survey the dynamism of language shift in the use of Heritage Swedish and American English in textual space over a span of 150 years (1850 through 2005). This socio-historical linguistic investigation employs the Communities of Practice framework to understand the social forces associated with variable patterns of bilingualism in Lutheran congregations. Analysis is performed on texts written by groups of parishioners, namely by members of parish councils and by cookbook committees, in four Midwestern Swedish-American churches. Dimensions of time, localities, and demographics are examined in observing the patterns in the writers' production of texts in dual languages. Extant evidence from the parish cookbooks reveals that most of the contents were written in English at an earlier stage than were the annual meeting minutes of the parish councils. In two of the congregations investigated, annual minutes were written in Swedish for more than sixty years. Despite the relatively early shift to English by the cookbook committees in all four parishes, the committees nonetheless promoted the use of Swedish lexis in the names of recipes, particularly in the second half of the 1900s. The cookbook committees thus preserved components of Heritage Swedish long after the documents written by parish councils had switched to English. The dynamism of the language shift in the four local congregations is compared to the previous research carried out on the national level of the Swedish-American Lutheran church.

    Tracking Swedish-American English: A Longitudinal Study of Linguistic Variation and Identity2003Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The large-scale Swedish immigration to the American Midwest beginning in the mid-1800s is the sociolinguistic backdrop for this book. The focus of the study is the variety of English spoken by elderly Swedish immigrants and elderly Swedish Americans. In addition to tracing different patterns of Swedish settlement in rural and urban areas to establish how social history affects different types of language contact, the investigation examines how the majority language-English-was influenced by Swedish over many decades. Data were transcribed from seventy-two speakers recorded in oral history interviews from 1959 to 1998. The main material consists of interviews with elderly persons who have lived in Swedish-American communities for all of their adult years. Data from these speakers are compared to the speech of persons who have experienced relatively little language contact: Swedes who remained in their home region in Dalarna, and monolingual speakers of American English from a small community in Kansas. Special attention in the linguistic analysis is devoted to features of syntax and pragmatics. Relative clause structures are investigated to examine how language contact has influenced speakers' strategies in syntactic subordination. Another special focus in the book is pragmatic particles, such words and phrases as you know, well, so, and ja. Analysis of the interviews reveals that elderly male Swedish immigrants as a group use these items more frequently than other speakers. Explanations for this linguistic phenomenon take into account the speakers' syntactic remodelling of English as well as their use of Swedish-influenced English to highlight their social identity. A longitudinal study of two individuals, who have been interviewed several times over a thirty-year interval, examines the socio-symbolic aspects of Swedish-American English. Bilingual individuals have the option of using different parts of their linguistic repertoire, depending on which aspect of their identity they wish to highlight for their listeners. The study thus examines hybridized Swedish and English linguistic features in conversational interaction. Finally, it examines Swedish-American English in jokes and literature.
