    Modality in Kazakh as Spoken in China2016Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a comprehensive study on modality in one of the largest Turkic languages, Kazakh, as it is spoken in China. Kazakh is the official language of the Republic of Kazakhstan and is furthermore spoken by about one and a half million people in China in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and in Aksai Kazakh Autonomous County in Gansu Province.The method employed is empirical, i.e. data-oriented. The modal expressions in Kazakh are analyzed in a theoretical framework essentially based on the works of Lars Johanson. The framework defines semantic notions of modality from a functional and typological perspective. The modal volition, deontic evaluation, and epistemic evaluation express attitudes towards the propositional content and are conveyed in Kazakh by grammaticalized moods, particles and lexical devices. All these categories are treated in detail, and ample examples of their different usages are provided with interlinear annotation. The Kazakh expressions are compared with corresponding ones used in other Turkic languages. Contact influences of Uyghur and Chinese are also dealt with.The data used in this study include texts recorded by the author in 20102012, mostly in the northern regions of Xinjiang, as well as written texts published in Kazakhstan and China. The written texts represent different genres: fiction, non-fiction, poetry and texts published on the Internet. Moreover, examples have been elicited from native speakers of Kazakh and Uyghur. The Appendix contains nine texts recorded by the author in the Kazakh-speaking regions of Xinjiang, China. These texts illustrate the use of many of the items treated in the study.

    Kingship in the Early Mesopotamian Onomasticon 2800–2200 BCE2012Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Thousands of Sumerian and Old Akkadian personal names from 3rd millennium BCE Meso-potamia are known and documented. The present study inspects names containing the royal appellatives, Sumerian lugal and Akkadian śarrum. The study aims at uncovering the rela-tionships between personal names and the development of early historical kingship and reli-gious thought in the area.

    An overview of Sumerian and Old Akkadian names and name-giving serves as a starting point for semantic investigations of lugal- and śarrum-names. Sumerian and Old Akkadian names are to a large extent meaningful, and the literal meaning can be used to arrive at an understanding of the symbolic value, which led to the coining of the name. Discussions rely on comparable passages of contemporary and later written traditions.

    To facilitate discussion and comparisons between the languages, names are divided into semantic groups based on characteristic traits found in contemporary royal inscriptions and religious texts. Parallel constructions are noted whenever such constructions are known. Names are assigned human or divine referents when possible. A look at political and religious developments puts the distribution of certain name types over time and space into perspective. Local and regional traditions and types are displayed and related either to royal ideological traits or to theological speculation. Besides locally significant gods, a few other deities can be identified as referents in names. A brief statistical overview of different archives shows that names featuring the figure of the lugal experience an increase in popularity at the expense of  other types.

    A system of annotation gives approximate numbers for bearers of names belonging to the types investigated. Lists of attestations, which document date and archival context, form the basis for discussions and conclusions and make the material available for inspection and further exploration.

    Abstract [en]

    Three early Mesopotamian cuneiform documents are studied and treated. One is a contract dealing with the acquisition of fields in the Early Dynastic Sumerian city of Šuruppag (ca 2600 BCE); one is a foundation document written on a clay cone commemorating the building of a temple by Gudea, governor of the city-state of Lagaš (ca 2120 BCE); one is a small administrative text from the eighth year of the reign of the Ur III king Šu-Su'en (ca 2030 BCE). The barley to copper equivalency found in some Early Dynastic Šuruppag contracts is discussed based on information in the first text.

    Bakhtiari studies: Phonology, text, lexicon2014Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Bakhtiari, a Southwestern Iranian language in the Luri language continuum, is spoken by over a million people in the Zagros Mountains of Iran. Almost a century after Lorimer’s (1922) publication on the phonology of Bakhtiari, the present study re-examines this topic in the light of contemporary linguistics, the study of lexicon and texts and, crucially, native speaker intuition. This new research clarifies some of the important questions left by Lorimer and in doing so, leads to surprising insights into the basic structure of the system, which shows some fundamental divergences from Middle and New Persian, and even from the other Luri languages.

    The first part of the book situates the language within its larger geographic and genetic context, defines the language and its varieties, and provides a summary of research on the language. The second section, which constitutes the core of the study, is devoted to an in-depth analysis of the phonological system, including segmental phonology (inventory, contrast, allophonic processes and distribution), syllable structure and an array of morphophonological processes, as well as stress and intonation. The final three sections of the book comprise an interlinearized Bakhtiari folktale, tables of verb paradigms, and a semantically organized lexicon containing 1500 items. Together, these documents constitute the basis of the data analyzed in the phonological description and provide an integrated picture of related aspects of the language. Along with discussions of the typological contribution of the data and observations on their distinctness from Persian, the final chapters are important resources for the further study of the morphology, syntax, discourse structure and lexicon of Bakhtiari.

    Stress-induced Vowel Lengthening and Harmonization in Kumzari2013In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 61, p. 54-58Article 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.

    Adaptive Multilinguals: A Survey of Language on Larak Island2011Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Laraki, a Southwestern Iranian language variety heavily influenced by Arabic, is spoken on Larak Island in the Strait of Hormuz. This study is a survey of language use by the Larakispeaking community and is based on a field trip conducted in January 2009. In our research, we provide an overview of the language community, define the language and its varieties, and examine patterns of language use, attitudes and vitality. Responses from speakers of Laraki provide a fascinating window into the ethnic identity of the Laraki community, most of whose ancestors come not from Iran, but from Arabia. While a lexicostatistical comparison of Laraki with Musandam Kumzari show a high degree of lexical similarity, recorded text tests (RTTs) reveal that intelligibility of Musandam Kumzari to speakers of Laraki is marginal. Taking linguistic considerations and speakers’ perceptions into account, we conclude nonetheless that Laraki and Musandam Kumzari should be considered dialects of a single language, Kumzari. In our investigation of language use, a striking pattern of adaptive multilingualism emerges in which speakers of Laraki normatively select one of several languages (Laraki, Farsi, Arabic and at least one regional variety such as Qeshmi, Hormuzi or Bandari) according to domains of use and limitations in the proficiency of their audiences. Although use of the mother tongue is vigorous in domestic and traditional work-related domains, and speakers’ attitudes toward their language are overwhelmingly positive, the small size of the language community and the history of social upheaval in the region place the community at risk.

    Abuse of Dominant Position in China and the EU: A Comparative Legal Study2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis presents the Chinese and European competition laws on abuse of dominant position. The thesis starts with an introduction, and goes on to present the purpose of the study, which is to determine the similarities and differences between the Chinese and European prohibitions on ADP. 

         After the introductory part, consisting of background, method, material and previos research, the respective prohibitions are described in different aspects. The aspects are namely system, purpose, scope of application, what constitutes dominance and what constitutes abuse. Thereafter, the two prohibitions are compared. In the comparison, similarities are presented such as similar purposes, similar scope of application, very similar in what constitutes a dominant position and abuse. The systematics however differ more, and so do the rules on extraterritorial application.

         In the concluding remarks, the results of the thesis are highlighted and the author shortly analyses the results..

    Sergius of Reshaina, Introduction to Aristotle and his Categories, Addressed to Philotheos: Syriac Text, with Introduction, Translation, and Commentary2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    There are two related texts extant in Syriac written by the physician and commentator Sergius of Reshaina (d. 536) about the philosophy of Aristotle. This book provides a critical edition and a facing English translation of the shorter of these texts. The edition is based on the single preserved manuscript of the text (Berlin, Petermann I 9). An introduction to Sergius’ life and works, and an analysis of the text in its intellectual context, is also provided. His writing is one of the earliest analyses on Aristotelian philosophy in the Syriac language and presents concepts that were taught at the Neoplatonist school of Ammonius Hermeiou (d. 517-526) in Alexandria.

    Sergius received his philosophical and medical education in Alexandria and was active in the city of Reshaina as one of the first translators of profane Greek material into Syriac. He translated chiefly medical works by Galen, especially those that were studied in the Alexandrian school, but also the theological corpus of Pseudo-Dionysius. Sergius composed some original works on Aristotle’s philosophy as well. Through his translation work and literary activity, he paved the way for the later engagement in medicine and Aristotelian philosophy among Syriac writers. His importance and influence is acknowledged by the historical testimonies to him, as well as by the numerous ways in which his works were read and used.

    The text of Sergius, edited here, treats themes that are primarily found in Aristotle’s Categories. After a preface, in which the author refutes potential criticism and justifies his writing, he begins his work with a traditional division of the philosophy into theory and practice with their respective subdivisions. He also presents the Platonist notion of universals, before introducing the ten categories of reality into which, according to him, Aristotle had arranged all existing things. However, Sergius discusses the categories of substance, quantity, quality, and relatives more extensively, since these four were considered to be the main categories. Many problems related to these categories are presented together with proposed solutions. Other topics described by Sergius are such as what is a distinctive property, the natural philosophers’ view of the four elements, the modes of opposition and its difference from contrariety, and the five kinds of priority. Moreover, Sergius provides a relatively lengthy discussion of the nature of space and whether it belongs to the category of quantity. This discussion is based on the Alexandrian commentators’ interpretations of Aristotle’s Physics rather than the Categories. In the commentary section of this edition, Sergius’ line of thought is clarified and compared to some Greek commentaries from the same tradition.

    Restoring the face of history on stage: Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy - A model opera in revolutionary service2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is to present identified modifications in the model opera Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy, and to put these in perspective of its trajectory from its origins in the novel Tracks in the Snowy Forest, to its final form as the studied model opera from 1970. A semantical analysis was employed in the study of the book and the script, whereas semiotics served as a tool in identifying the existence and use of traditional elements from the theatrical form of jingju in the model opera. The contextualized analysis of the encountered alterations and their employment in relation to their history and contemporary circumstances shed a light over the importance of the identified elements’ role in using the model opera as a tool for clarifying differences between good and evil as established by the contemporary political elite. Going beyond its entertaining purpose and in accordance with the established policies regarding the arts set by the Communist Party, director Jiang Qing created a medley of Chinese and Western instruments, reformed jingju elements and rephrased lines. A medley conveying the indirect message of the right way to follow, in the disguise of a communist hero besieging Tiger Mountain in the name of revolution.

    “What do my emotions matter if mother is sad?” – Filial Piety, Heteronormative Obligations, and Social Exchanges in Beijing Gushi2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A classic among queer works of literature written in Chinese, Beijing Gushi 北京故事 was one of the first Sinophone novels to openly portray homosexual relationships in modern time. Given the first publication of an English translation of the novel in 2016, this thesis represents an attempt to shed some light on the particular connection between filial piety and queer identity in Sinophone communities, along with other unique cultural traits that make queer experiences in Sinophone societies different from their Euro-American counterparts.

    The thesis is based on a close reading of Beijing Gushi, and examines how and why the main character, Chen Handong, maintains his four most important relationships in the novel. By use of a theoretical framework based on queer theory and social exchange theory – particularly concepts from the works of Judith Butler and George C. Homans – I argue that traditional expectations associated with filial piety constitute the primary element that guides the main character’s decisions regarding his personal relationships. I find that heteronormativity and material gifts play significant roles in the character’s managing of his social life. While the main character’s attitude towards his own non-heterosexuality goes from complete rejection to relative self-acceptance over the course of the novel, the majority of his important life choices and interpersonal actions are ultimately determined based on perceived social obligations related to heteronormativity and filial piety.

    The Biblical Hebrew "Store Cities" and an Amarna Gloss2017In: Vetus Testamentum (Print), ISSN 0042-4935, E-ISSN 1568-5330, Vol. 67, no 4, p. 519-527Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The word מסכנות used in the phrase ערי מסכנות “store cities” is commonly considered a loanword from the Neo-Assyrian word maškattu, “account, deposit, storehouse.” The current loan hypothesis does not account for the difficulties of the Akkadian evidence and does not take into consideration a gloss in Amarna letter no. 306. This gloss shows that the Canaanite scribes of the Late Bronze Age were familiar with the Akkadian plural form maškanātu and used it with the meaning “granaries, storage areas.” This technical term was borrowed into a Canaanite dialect and was subsequently transmitted to Biblical Hebrew as מסכנות.

    Discourse Features in Balochi of Sistan: (Oral Narratives)2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This work presents a first study of discourse features in Balochi narratives of Sistan. Discourse analysis investigates what are the properties that make for well-formed texts in a language. There are many approaches to discourse analysis and most approaches focus on a particular aspect of text formation. The approach to text linguistics or discourse analysis taken in this work is based on Dooley and Levinsohn’s Analyzing Discourse: A manual of basic concepts (2001). Their methodology has been refined over years of practical use and, among diverse methodologies, they follow a functional and cognitive approach. In this dissertation, Roberts’ (2009) application of Dooley and Levinsohn’s methodology to Persian is followed in the study of our Sistani Balochi text corpus.

    In chapters 2-7 this approach is applied to Balochi narrative text. Chapter two introduces the reader to the discourse-pragmatic structuring of sentences in BS and chapter three shows how different syntactic devices can distinguish foreground and background information in BS oral texts. In chapter four we study the deixis of time and place and how the concept of proximal and distal deixis applies across a range of deictic elements. Chapter five examines some basic connectives and how they link propositions in the discourse context, and in chapter six reported speech is studied. Chapter seven illustrates how different participants are introduced into a discourse and how their activation status is signalled throughout the discourse.

    Appendix 1 contains details of the Balochi text-corpus used, and Appendix 2 contains interlinearized versions of ten of the main texts used in the study. A CD with nine audio files and one video file of the ten texts from Appendix 2, plus one extra video file, is also included.

    رودابه تجلی حماسی آناهیتا

     

    داستان زال و رودابه طولانی‌ترین داستان دلکش و عاشقانه شاهنامه است. این دو که پر کش و قوس‌ترین ماجرای عاشقانه در حماسه‌ی ملی ایران را برای آفرینش جهان پهلوان شاهنامه به سرانجام می‌رسانند بطور منطقی می‌بایستی دارای پیش نمونه‌هایی در اساطیر کهن ایران باشند. زال یا  زال زر، که بتحقیق می‌توان او را پدر حماسه نامید، آنچنانکه از نامش پیداست ارتباط تنگاتنگی با ایزد کهن ایرانی یعنی زروان که   تجلی پیری و قوت مردانگی و درخشندگی و کمال است، دارد. در این جستار کوتاه برآنیم که با بررسی این منظومه و دلنشین ترین یشت اوستا، یعنی آبان یشت که در ستایش ایزدبانوی آب ها اردویسور آناهیتا سروده شده، و بنا بر شواهدی که ارائه خواهد شد، نشان دهیم که این ایزدبانو می تواند پیشینه ی اساطیری رودابه و همتای حماسی زال باشد.

    The Role of Natural Phenomena in the Rise and Fall of Urban Areas in the Sistan Basin on the Iranian Plateau (Southern Delta)2010In: The Urban Mind: Cultural and Environmental Dynamics / [ed] Paul J.J Sinclair, Gullög Nordquist, Frands Herschend & Christian Isendahl, Uppsala: Uppsala University , 2010, p. 221-241Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In ancient times, and even today, water resources, especially rivers, were the main reasons for the existence of human settlements and the formation of the idea of urbanity in the people's minds. This phenomenon can be seen in all places where ancient civilizations were established, e.g. in Egypt, Mesopotamia, Transoxiana and Sind due to the rivers Nile, Tigries and Euphrates, Amu Darya and Syr Darya and Sind, respectively. The Helmand civilization, therefore, was not an exception. Furthermore, after passing a long distance through a desert, the Helmand River reaches the Sistan basin which is a closed inland delta surronded by terribly dry deserts from every side. This special situation makes the Sistan basin and interesting area for attracting human settlements.

    The abundance of water in the southern delta of the Helmand River, the oldest one of the two deltas, created a suitable environmental situation for the people during the fourth millennium BC to settle and establish the only large urban centre, i.e. Shahr-i Sokhta, in the eastern part of the Iranian plateau in Sistan. Natural phenomena such as climate change at the end of the third millennium BC, long droughts, change of the river bed because of tectonic phenomena at the level of the continental platform and violent dust storms caused people to abandon the area after a thousand year of flourishing. Some settlements were established in different parts of the southern delta in intervals after the collapse of Shahr-i Sokhta up to the 18th century. However, considering the small amount of water this delta received, an urban settlement like Shahr-i Sokhta was never established again. Even in the southern delta, where the inhabitants of Shahr-i Sokhta might have moved, no such large prehistoric urban settlement was found, perhaps due to constant floods, droughts and the famous Wind of One Hundred and Twenty Days which buried buman settlements and blocked the irrigation canals.

    The Third Person Singular Pronominal Clitic in Balochi of Sistan: A Progress Report2014In: Stuadia Iranica, ISSN 0221-5004, Vol. 43, no 2, p. 203-220Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper begins by discussing the distribution of the two allomorphs of the third person singular pronominal clitic in Balochi of Sistan. It finds the conditioning to be mostly, but not exclusively phonological. When  is attached to the final verb of an independent clause, the referent is the subject/agent but, when  occurs, it is the undergoer (with a few exceptions due to dialectal variation). It follows that, when the subject is stated but  is also present,  still refers to the subject and gives it thematic prominence. The second part of the paper argues that the presence of the pronominal clitic with the past form of the verb ‘say’ (gušt=ī) communicates 'referent continuity' (Givón 1990); in particular, the ongoing involvement in the expected role of any active third person participant who is not identified by a noun or independent pronoun in the current clause.

    The Competition between the Hormoz and Kish Islands on the Southern Coasts of Iran (the Persian Gulf and Makran Sea) during the First Half of the Eight Century (AH) based on the Newly-Found Shahugat Inscription in Makran2015In: Specialized Quarterly of Persian Gulf Studies, ISSN 2383-0220, Vol. 1, no 4, p. 50-53Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present paper introduces the Shahugat inscription which was recently discovered near Tabaktal village in Chahan district near Nikshahr in Sistan and Baluchestan Province. This inscription refers to some events which occurred in the early eighth century on the southern coasts of Iran and can be matched with certain icidents which have been recorded in historical sources. The conflicts among the rulers of the southern rregions and islands of Iran, such as Shiraz, Hormoz, Kish, and Qeshm, in order to gain control of the roads and commercial benefits not only in the Persian Gulf and Makran Sea regions but also on the coasts of India were one of the reasons for some people seeking shelter in the highlands of Makran and engraving this inscription.

    The Political Events in South Iran During the First Half of the 8th Century (A.H.) Based on the New Found Inscriptions in Shāhugat: Makrān2015In: Historical Sciences Studies, ISSN 2251-9254, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 119-134Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The importance of inscriptions as the primary sources refer to historical events is undeniable. Introducing the Shāhugat inscriptions were found near Tābaktal village of Chāhān district around Nikshahr is the purpose of present paper. They refer to the events that occurred in south Iran around the end of the 7th and the beginning of the 8th centuries AH., a colorful and turbulent period of its history, some of which can be easily adapted to the historical sources. The invasion of Chagatai Mongols to Shiraz and Hormuz, the conflicts between the rulers of districts and southern islands such as Shiraz, Hormuz, kish and Qeshm to hold the roads and commercial interests are among the reasons that made some of the people to refuge the highlands of Makrān and subsequently led to these inscriptions.
