    Abstract [en]

    On the basis of the writings of P. Lemerle, C. Rapp and Chr. Høgel the author discusses the different judgements pronounced on the hagiographic activity of Symeon Metaphrastes and the position of his Menologion in the so-called encyclopedism of the tenth century. Rapp's "antiquarian" stance and Høgel's "ideological" reading should, according to the author, be possible to reconcile.

    A grammatical sketch of Ngarla: A language of Western Australia2007Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis the basic grammatical structure of normal speech style of the Western Australian language Ngarla is described using example sentences taken from the Ngarla – English Dictionary (by Geytenbeek; unpublished). No previous description of the language exists,  and since there are only five people who still speak it, it is of utmost importance that it is investigated and described. The analysis in this thesis has been made by Torbjörn Westerlund, and the focus lies on the morphology of the nominal word class. The preliminary results show that the language shares many grammatical traits with other Australian languages, e.g. the ergative/absolutive case marking pattern. The language also appears to have an extensive verbal inflectional system, and many verbalisers.

    Finite verbs in Ngarla (Pama-Nyungan, Ngayarta)2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis provides a description of finite verbs in the moribund Australian language Ngarla (Pama-Nyungan, Ngayarta). Ngarla has previously been spoken in the Pilbara region of northwestern Western Australia, and all the linguistic material used in the thesis has the late Ngarla elder Alexander (Nyapiri) Brown as its source. No study with the scope and detail of the current work has previously been presented for this language.

    Verbal finiteness is defined as a discrete binary phenomenon, with finite verbs occurring in main clauses and taking TAM (tense/aspect/mood) and person marking, and infinite verbs occurring in subordinate clauses. The Ngarla finite verbs are placed in a larger grammatical context, in that word classes of the language are described, as are the noun phrase, predicate types and word order. The 65 known simple verb roots are listed, and the phonology and prosody of Ngarla are introduced briefly.

    Twelve TAM categories occuring in Ngarla main clauses are discussed. They are described as marking four different tenses; present, past, remote past and future tense. In the past, three different aspectual distinctions are also made. There are three modal categories, one epistemic and two deontic. In three categories, temporal and modal information are also combined. However, person markers exist for some persons only.

    Complex verbs, consisting of a non-verbal root, most frequently a nominal, and a verbalising affix, are described as presenting a complicated picture. Not only are no less than ten verbalisers employed to create complex verbs, some of which mark the domain of telicity, there is also, with most verbalisers, a mismatch between the phonological and the grammatical word. Quite a large number of verbs also appear to be complex verbs, although the non-verbal root is not a known Ngarla nominal. Discussed in the thesis are also a smaller number of zero verbalised verbs and verbs that at the time of writing lack a clear analysis.

    Ngarla finite verbs are shown to take two valency decreasing derivations, the reflexive and the antipassive, the latter of which is restricted in use. The very restricted valency increasing derivation is of the causative type.

    The basic case marking of Ngarla, a language of Western Australia.2009In: Multilingualism, Proceedings of the 23rd Scandinavian Conference of Linguistics. / [ed] Anju Saxena & Åke Viberg, Uppsala: Uppsala universitet , 2009, p. 115-126Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to describe the basic case marking in Ngarla (Pama-Nyungan, Ngayarta) - a previously understudied Australian language. Basic case marking – the marking of core clausal constituents - is understood to comprise marking on intransitive subject (S), transitive subject (A), and transitive object (P). Some information will also be provided about peripheral case markers; dative, purposive, instrumental, and aversive. This paper will show that the marking of core clausal functions is complex in Ngarla, and that the peripheral case marking is typologically interesting in several respects. The marking of dative and possessive have for example merged in Ngarla, and the language also appears to have a separate aversive suffix, something that is quite unusual in Australian languages.

    Verb Classification in Ngarla (Ngayarta, Pama-Nyungan)2017In: Australian Journal of Linguistics, ISSN 0726-8602, E-ISSN 1469-2996, Vol. 37, no 3, p. 328-355Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, it is argued that Ngarla (Ngayarta, Pama-Nyungan), an under-studied language of the Pilbara region of northwestern Australia, is a verb classifying language of the type described by, for example, McGregor. Verb classifying languages are found in the north of Australia, but the phenomenon has previously not been recognized in languages of the northwestern Pilbara region. The Ngarla verb classifying system is described as being a highly grammaticalized one. Historical sources of the second part of the verb compound, the inflecting verbs, are sought, and short comparisons are also made to Martuthunira and Yinjibarndi (both Ngayarta, Pama-Nyungan).

    Chrysoloras’ Erotemata, and the evolution of grammatical descriptions2018In: Beiträge zur Geschichte der Sprachwissenschaft, ISSN 0939-2815, Vol. 1, p. 33-56Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is an analysis of the categorisation of Greek nominals in Greek grammatical theory, and in particular the advances made by late 14th century Byzantine scholars.

    The analysis concerns the process by which the canones of Theodosius Alexandrinus, the 56 in- flectional categories described in the 4th century CE, came to be condensed into a mere ten, in the grammar Erotemata by Manuel Chrysoloras (1355–1415), and considers Chrysoloras’ achievement as part of the larger scholarly context in Constantinopel at the end of 14th century.

    Multicultural interaction, colonial boundaries and changing group identities: Contextualising inscriptions, languages and alphabets2018In: The Archaeology of Death: Proceedings of the Seventh Conference of Italian Archaeology held at the National University of Ireland, Galway, April 16-18, 2016 / [ed] Edward Herring, Eóin O’Donoghue, Summertown, Oxford: Archeopress, 2018, p. 138-148Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper outlines a project that is building a model for assessing multicultural interaction, which will be used for the study of the expansion of Rome in central Italy in the wider context of Latin colonisation. Its theoretical framework incorporates Social Identity Theory and the concept of mental distance applied to geographically related groups. The key materials studied at this stage are funerary architecture and inscriptions, which reveal different nested aspects of group identities. Here we briefly present the local context of the study – Nepi and the Faliscan area – with the different languages and alphabets used in the area. This area will be compared with its neighbouring areas in order to analyse long-term changes in group identities from the precolonial period to the colonial period.

    Experiences of Revenge as Reflected in the Pashto Short Story2010In: Best Served Cold: Studies on Revenge / [ed] Sheila C. Bibb & Daniel Escandell Montiel, Oxford: Inter-Disciplinary Press , 2010, p. 153-161Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Approaching a decade of US/NATO military engagement in Afghanistan, the scholarly interest over the area has gradually reawakened. However, emphasis has though mainly been directed towards the political and social implications of war, while cultural functions and expressions still remain by and large unexplored. This is especially true about the Pashtun community. Research has suggested that revenge, included under the Pashto concept of badal, is an essential element constituting Pashtun identity. Badal, which is part of a larger set of unwritten tribal codes of honour called pashtūnwalī, does not apply to a neutral conception of revenge but is more related to the ‘defence of honour’. Previous studies, as well as the media, have often emphasised this idea rather incautiously, stressing desire of revenge or vindictiveness to be a main characteristic of this group’s collective identity. Far from being a static phenomenon, pashtūnwalī displays great variation of observance depending on both temporal and local context. This study engages the contemporary Pashto short story genre, being the most popular and widely practised type of modern narrative prose fiction among the Pashtuns, and explores how the concept of revenge is formulated upon within this type of texts. The study delves into the question whether revenge, considering that modern Pashto literature is mainly an urban reality, is narrated according to its traditional denotation of ‘defending honour’, or if a more neutral or materialistic type of revenge may be discerned. It will also investigate whether revenge is a typical characteristic of Pashtun life, as has been proposed in prior descriptions, or if it is a theme of only peripheral occurrence. Searching for keywords related to ‘revenge’ in Pashto short stories published on the Internet followed by a close reading analysis of each entrance, an assessment of the urban Pashtun view upon revenge may be deduced.

    Voices at the Borders, Prose on the Margins: Exploring the Contemporary Pashto Short Story in a Context of War and Crisis2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation is a study of contemporary Pashto prose writing in a context of war and crisis based on a corpus of digitally published and/or printed short stories from the 1990s onwards. Out of this larger corpus, 16 stories have been selected and analysed under four topics: "The Terrorist", Female agency: Representations of and by, "The Madman", and Axtar: Longing for peace or imaging disillusion. A central idea is that the analysis should be text-oriented, but the contextualisation of the analysed texts is a secondary important focus.

    Chapter one presents the material and gives a general context to the study. In the second chapter, after a general conceptualisation of the short story genre, I discuss the borders between prose and poetry. In chapter three I provide an overview of Pashto literature where the aim is to pinpoint certain characteristics of literature in what I call a poeticised community, such as that of the Pashtuns. The fourth chapter contains an introduction to the four topics mentioned above, a summary of each of the four stories belonging to the specific topic with selected parts in direct translation from the Pashto original, as well as a discussion of form and contents of each topic separately. Chapter five consists of a general conclusion. An appendix with the original Pashto text of translated sections is found before the bibliography.

    One feature that has emerged from this study is the notion of how the narratives are often found to communicate and respond to their immediate surroundings, in time as well as in space. Another important conclusion is that devices normally regarded as belonging to the realm of poetry are not uncommon in Pashto short story writing.

    Annius von Viterbo und die schwedische Historiographie des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts1992Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The process of creating a Swedish glorious prehistory--an indispensable prerequisitive for a leading political power--began with Johannes Magnus' Historia de omnibus Gothorum Sveonumque regibus (first ed. 1554). Johannes took resort to a prestigious set of 'sources', adapting them to provide proof for Sweden's venerable origins going back to Noah. In reality, these allegedly very ancient 'sources' had been written in the 15th c by the Italian dominican friar Annius of Viterbo. This monograph investigates the basic role of Annius' forgeries in constructing and expanding the illustrious national prehistory of Sweden in printed texts down to the days when imaginary history lost its importance and such immensely important 'sources' as Annius' forgeries were relegated to the realm of silent shadows.

    Gudarnas mänskliga gestalt -- vanföreställning, meningsfull symbol eller politiskt trick?: Ett försummat problemkomplex i den antika filosofin2017In: Religion och Bibel, ISSN 0347-2302, Vol. 68-70, p. 29-56Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The article explores ancient thinkers's views on how the anthropomorphic image of the divine, a concept most of them held to be wrong, could have arisen. These views are to be strictly distinguished from attitudes to the myths about the anthropomorphic gods. The article presents a number of models that can be reconstructed from our texts. Of these, the dominant one claims that the idea of gods in human shape was a deplorable result of linguistic misunderstanding, an original metaphorical discourse about the divine having been wrongly taken in a literal sense. Other models present the anthropomorphic image of the divine as having been invented intentionally, either by shrewd politicians as a means to control the uneducated many, or by wise men who sought for a convenient method to symbolically refer to the unrepresentable, unspeakable Supreme Being. This latter theory, with its acceptance of the anthropomorphic representation of the gods (although of course not literally), is attested only very late, and there are good reasons for believing that this is not mere chance.

    Finally, the article touches upon the logically most attractive model, the theory put forth by Euhemerus, according to which the gods are presented in human form simply because they had once been human beings. The scholarly debate on Euhemerism is in need of thorough revision.

    Abstract [en]

    In antiquity, certain famous men came to be widely regarded as the offspring of a supernatural union between their mothers and a god. Among the most prominent of these sons of gods were Plato, Alexander the Great, Scipio the Elder and Augustus. As a rule, the god was said to have had intercourse with the woman in the guise of a serpent. However, the possibility of a more spiritual conception is taken into account in at least one case, that of Plato.

    This article examines the attitude of the educated elite to this kind of legend and their ideas as to how such absurd tales may have originated.

    Sinn und Wahrheitsgehalt der Kultbilder aus der Sicht den antiken Philosophie: Zur antiken Debatte an Hand des Beispiels Marcus Terentius Varro2006In: Syncharmata: studies in honour of Jan Fredrik Kindstrand / [ed] Sten Eklund, Uppsala: Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, 2006, p. 189-209Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the last book of his Divine Antiquities, Marcus Terentius Varro claimed that the anthropomorphic images of the gods had once been introduced in order to convey true knowledge of the divine to those able to grasp it. As far as we can tell, Varro was the first to accept the anthropomorphic representation of the gods as a sound (though indirect) method of expressing theological truth. However, earlier in that very same work, he had taken a negative stance to such representation of the gods. This article provides a close reading of Varro’s positions, clarifying the ideological presuppositions of both attitudes.

    Behind the shift there must lie a new understanding of how and why the gods once came to be represented in human shape. It is striking that philosophical acceptance of the images of the gods turns up so late, in view of the fact that the mythological narrative dealing with the anthropomorphic gods had been treated as cryptophilosophical discourse by philosophers for centuries. This delay shows that anthropomorphic representation of the gods was a problem in itself to philosophy, different from and not automatically linked to the question of searching for philosophical significance in mythological narrative.

    Många antika tänkare har ansett att den (felaktiga) föreställningen om gudarnas mänskliga gestalt har uppkommit p g a att ett ursprungligt metaforiskt sätt att beskriva gudarna och deras verkan (av typ Moder Jord, Fader Himmel , Kung Sol o likn) missförståtts och uppfattats bokstavligt

    Why it should be obvious that Euhemerus did not write his Sacred History to bolster ruler cult: A critical assessment and an alternative theory2014In: ΛABPYΣ. Studies presented to Pontus Hellström / [ed] Lars Karlsson, Susanne Carlsson, Jesper Blid Kullberg, Uppsala: Uppsala universitet, 2014, p. 341-350Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The idea that Euhemerus wrote to bolster ruler cult is wide-spread, although it has nothing to support it if the evidence is analysed in detail. In the present artcile, that task is undertaken and the serious problems accompanying the theory are discussed. If we take Euhemerus' project as an attempt to forward a new theory as to how the anthropomorphic image of the divine had arisen, every single question prompted by the traditional explanation turns out to get its solution.

    A Linguistic Description of Mbugwe with Focus on Tone and Verbal Morphology2018Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Mbugwe is an endangered Bantu language spoken in north central Tanzania. This PhD dissertation is a description of the Mbugwe language with a focus on tone and verbal morphology, based on the author’s fieldwork. This is the first detailed description of the language. Thus far, only a short grammatical sketch of Mbugwe has been available.

    Mbugwe is a tonal language with a rich verbal system. Therefore, the focus of this dissertation is on tone and verbal morphology. The dissertation also contains a brief description of the phonology of Mbugwe as well as a description of the nominal system. Mbugwe has 7 vowels; length is distinctive. There are 21 consonant phonemes, not counting the NC sequences, which are analysed as clusters in this study. Mbugwe has 17 noun classes and the adnominals that agree with the noun are described and exemplified.

    The tones of the language are presented in detail. Mbugwe has two tones, high and low, and the low tone is considered the default tone. The tone-bearing unit is the mora. High tones spread one mora to the right, and the last high tone before a low tone is upstepped. There is both lexical tone and grammatical tone in Mbugwe, and grammatical tones that occur on the verb stem in certain verb forms are described.

    In the chapter on verb morphology, the structures of the simple and periphrastic verbs are presented, as well as a description of the infinitive and copula verbs. The various tenses, aspects and moods of Mbugwe are then presented. There are 25 affirmative forms and 15 negative forms. For the perfective verbs, there are three past tenses and a future tense. In the imperfective, there is only one past tense, as well as a present and one future tense. Other aspects are the progressive, the habitual and the persistive. Moods that are grammaticalized in Mbugwe are the subjunctive, the imperative and the counterfactual. Verb forms that are not readily categorized as tense, aspect or mood are the consecutive, the situative and the participial. They depend on other verbs for their time reference.
