    Plain language in Swedish translations of EU legal texts2013In: TijdSchrift voor Skandinavistiek, ISSN 0168-2148, E-ISSN 1875-9505, Vol. 33, no 1, p. 41-55Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is well known that Swedish translations of EU legal texts do not meet the plain language standards drawn up for texts produced by Swedish authorities. The influence of poorly written source texts is often seen as the main cause, but we actually know little about the process by which these translations are produced – and therefore little about what the impediments really are for meeting these plain language standards. The results presented in this article indicate that several other factors also have a significant influence. The material consists of field observations and interviews, conducted at the Swedish translation units of the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union – and the results show that factors such as strong demands for correspondence between different Swedish texts, short deadlines and an indefinable readership are of importance. A key question is whether the translations should be considered to be texts in a Swedish target system at all, or if they remain in an EU source culture? In the end, a better understanding of this translation process, could help us both to understand how we can best proceed when trying to improve plain language in these EU-texts, and, by shedding new light on plain language processes in general, to improve plain language work within Sweden too.

    Vad och hur skriver ett vårdbiträde?: En studie av skriftanvändning inom äldreomsorgen2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie syftar till att undersöka hur skriftanvändningen ser ut inom äldreomsorgen år

    2017, med fokus på i vilka situationer, i vilka funktioner och hur skrift används.

    Undersökningen har bestått av två observationer med kompletterande intervjuer. En anställd

    inom hemtjänsten och en anställd på ett permanent äldreboende har följts under två separata

    dagar. Resultatet visade att skriftbruket huvudsakligen fyller dokumenterande och

    orienterande/planerande funktioner, vilket stämmer överens med tidigare forskning, men att

    man idag använder sig av tekniska hjälpmedel i en större utsträckning. Slutsatserna man kan

    dra från denna undersökning är att det är de huvudsakliga arbetsuppgifterna, omvårdnaden av

    brukare, samt organisationen av arbetet som styr hur och till vad man använder skrift.

    Samtidigt begränsas och kontrolleras skriftens utformning av regler och riktlinjer från högre

    instanser inom verksamheten.

    Referatskrivande på gymnasiet: -att följa instruktioner och bearbeta andras text till egna ord2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats handlar om referatskrivande i gymnasieskolan och syftet har varit att undersöka hur en grupp på 20 elever, som just börjat kursen Svenska 1 på ett yrkesförberedande program, klarar att skriva genren referat efter given instruktion. Eleverna har fått sina instruktioner kring hur ett referat ska skrivas av sin lärare och de har med hjälp av dem och skriftliga instruktioner i läroboken Svenska A, där källtexten Samarbeta för att överleva har hämtats, skrivit varsitt referat som sedan undersökts.

    Resultatet innefattar hur eleverna har gjort med de typiska drag som nämns i instruktionen: referatannonsering, referatmarkörer, bearbetning av text till egna ord o.s.v. Detta presenteras i huvudsak kvantitativt med hjälp av diagram som sedan kommenteras. Några av dragen har eleverna använt sig av utan problem, så som referatannonsering och referatmarkörer, men av de 20 eleverna har bara 1 med alla de moment som har krävts om man hårdrar det, annars 2 stycken. 9 av eleverna bearbetar sin text så att majoriteten av innehållet är egenformulerad text.

    Som slutsats ges råd om att eleverna behöver få hjälp och tid att träna sig i att skriva med egna ord och med att se vad de själva gör med texten och hur det bör se ut för att vara tillräckligt omskrivet för att vara refererande text.

    Evidentiality across age and gender: A corpus-based study of variation in spoken British English2017In: Research in Corpus Linguistics (RiCL), ISSN 1064-4857, E-ISSN 2243-4712, ISSN 2243-4712, Vol. 5, p. 17-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the effects of age and gender on the frequency of the evidentiality categories 'sensory', 'hearsay', and 'inferential' in spontaneous spoken British English. The findings from the main data sample from the British National Corpus (BNC) are also compared to patterns in a smaller data set from the Diachronic Corpus of Present-day Spoken English (DCPSE) in order to estimate the relative effects of age-grading versus historical change. The results confirm statistically significant differences between men and women in their use of evidentiality, but show no significant effect of age or the interaction of age and gender. The comparison of the findings from the BNC data and the DCPSE data suggests that age-related patterns in evidentiality use are more diachronically stable than gender-related patterns.

    Abstract [en]

    The present study investigates differences between men and women in their preference for inferential evidentiality markers. Using spoken language data from the British National Corpus, a number of potential markers of inferential evidentiality (for example believe, imagine, must, obviously) have been analyzed for their evidential value as well as for pragmatic dimensions such as degree of certainty and (inter)subjectivity. The findings of the study show statistically significant variation between the male and the female respondents, and the subsequent analysis indicates, among other things, that the markers preferred by males are those that produce intersubjective assessments, whereas the markers preferred by female speakers are those that produce subjective assessments.

    Borders and Belonging: Nation-Building in Georgia's Armenian and Azerbaijani Ethno-Regions, 2004–20122016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the fall of the Soviet Union, scholars researching ethnic politics have approached the South Caucasus as a testing ground for theories of separatism and conflict. But the 2003 Rose Revolution brought a new generation of politicians to power in Georgia. President Mikheil Saakashvili distanced himself from the ethnic nationalism of the past, which had poisoned relations between Georgians and their Armenian and Azerbaijani compatriots. The incoming authorities instead sought to foster an inclusive nationalism, wherein belonging hinged on speaking the state language and all Georgian-speakers, regardless of origin, were to be equals.

    This thesis investigates this nation-building project and its influence on the integration of Georgia's Armenian and Azerbaijani borderlands. I first examine the mode through which these peripheries were incorporated into post-Soviet Georgia. Since Armenians controlled "their own" domain to a greater extent than the Azerbaijanis, I infer that the former were absorbed along integralist and the latter along colonial lines. Moving to the time-period after the Rose Revolution, I next explore if Georgian officials and Georgian adolescents were tolerant towards Georgian-speaking minorities. With the help of elite interviews and a socio-linguistic experiment (n = 792), I reveal that officials and adolescents were open to integrated Armenians and Azerbaijanis alike. I then proceed to inspect the centre's nationalising agencies and their efforts to incentivise minorities to interact with Georgians, and to use the state language during these contacts. Last but not least, I turn to the reactions this nation-building project elicited in the borderlands. On the basis of interviews with local elites and a socio-linguistic experiment involving Armenian and Azerbaijani adolescents (n = 434; n = 483), I discovered sharp differences: Armenians reacted with defiance and Azerbaijanis with compliance.

    These findings augment our knowledge of ethno-linguistic stereotypes in the Caucasus. They also demonstrate that inclusive nation-building projects can inspire minorities to integrate – despite adverse circumstances – but hint at one condition conducive to this end. Armenians perceived the state language as a battering ram against "their own" domain, while Azerbaijanis saw it as a tool to escape their isolation. This within-country comparison suggests that similar nation-building projects can trigger different reactions in integralist and colonial borderlands.

    Expressions of Future in Present-day English: A Corpus-based Approach2005Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This corpus-based study of the use of expressions of future in English has two aims: to examine how certain expressions of future are used in Present-day English, and to explore how electronic corpora can be exploited for linguistic study.

    The expressions focused on in this thesis are five auxiliary or semi-auxiliary verb phrases frequently discussed in studies of future reference in English: will, ’ll, shall, going to and gonna. The study examines the patterned ways in which the expressions are used in association with various linguistic and non-linguistic (or extra-linguistic) factors. The linguistic factors investigated are co-occurrence with particular words and co-occurrence with items of particular grammatical classes. The non-linguistic factors examined are medium (written vs. spoken), text category, speaker characteristics (age, sex, social class, etc.), region and time. The data for the study are exclusively drawn from computer-readable corpora of Present-day English. Corpus analyses are performed with automatic and interactive methods, and exploit both quantitative and qualitative analytical techniques.

    The study finds that the use of these expressions of future varies with a number of factors. Differences between spoken and written language are particularly prominent and usage also varies between different types of text, both within spoken and written corpora. Variation between groups of speakers is also attested. Although the linguistic co-occurrence patterns are similar to some degree, there are nonetheless differences in the collocational patterns in which the expressions are used.

    Methodological issues related to corpus-based studies in general are discussed in the light of the insights gained from this study of expressions of future.

    The maid who fell silent. Epic structures and gender in Swedish drama 1725-1900

    Epic structures such as soliloquies and asides are frequently used in drama. The narrative function served by these dramatic conventions enables characters to provide a running commentary to the plot, and this in turn makes the characters using them a driving force in the drama.

    In this paper I discuss gender and social class of the dramatic figures using epic structures in Swedish drama from 1725 to 1900. The material studied consists of 25 plays.

    The main characters af interest are the servant figures. The driving force of 18th-century comedy is the cunning maid and, to a lesser extent, her male counterpart. Around 1850 these servants are replaced by other figures, such as the scheming villain, a characteristic male figure in melodrama.

    With the emergence of realism and naturalism, the use of epic structures is reduced. Female servant figures in naturalist plays have few lines, and use virtually no soliloquies or asides. They are a necessary part of the bourgeois family, but are no longer the driving force of the drama.

    Regionala antroponomastikon under runsvensk tid2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I föreliggande arbete jämförs Nordupplands runsvenska antroponomastikon (personnamnsförråd) med Västergötlands med avseende på fördelningen av namnbildningstyper, vilka namn och namnleder som är mest frekventa och andelen unika namn. Det framkommer att Norduppland och Västergötland har i stort sett identisk fördelning av namnbildningstyper och andel unika namn men skiljer sig åt både gällande vilka namn och förleder som är mest frekventa och hur stor andel de frekventa namnen och förlederna utgör av respektive områdes totala material. Västergötland, vars frekventa namn utgör en större andel, förefaller ha ett mer homogent och mindre originellt antroponomastikon än Uppland. Den större variationen i det uppländska materialet kan eventuellt förklaras med att de uppländska runstenarna rests av och till minne av en socialt mer differentierad grupp. Den västgötska enheten speglar att de västgötska stenarna hört till en smalare samhällsklass. Att västgötska namn som antagits vara högstatusnamn inte förekommer i Norduppland, antas bero på regional variation i namnförrådet.

    En marginaliserad grupp?: SVA-elevers upplevelser av att få sina namn uttalade2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    En talare som stöter på ett nytt namn kan ha svårt att uttala det korrekt om det innehåller främmande språkljud. Syftet med studien är att undersöka SVA-elevers upplevelser av att få sina förnamn uttalade. Materialet för studien utgörs av 60 elevers svar på en enkät. Resultatet visade att en betydande del av eleverna upplever att deras namn blir felaktigt uttalade. En del elever upplever detta som besvärligt medan andra är likgiltiga inför faktumet. Analyserna visar att det finns en risk att elever som får sina namn fel uttalade internaliserar en känsla av att inte höra hemma. Men också att en lärare som ska uttala ett nytt namn korrekt behöver veta vilket språk namnet kommer ifrån, det språkets uttalsprinciper och ha förmåga att kunna uppfatta, avkoda och producera de språkljud som ingår i namnet.

    Temporality and the Semantics of the Biblical Hebrew Verbal System2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation investigates the semantic factors behind the temporal meanings of the Biblical Hebrew (BH) verbal forms. Four different forms are studied, viz. qotel, yiqtol-L, qatal, and yiqtol-S. On the basis of comparative and historical linguistic studies, qotel and yiqtol-L are classified as originally progressive forms, whereas qatal and yiqtol-S are classified as originally resultative ones. Since there is a tendency in BH to use the progressive subgroup for future meaning and the resultative subgroup for past meaning, a key to understanding how temporality is expressed in this language is to understand the meaning of the progressive and the resultative verbal types.

    In critical dialogue with modern typological linguistic research, a unified theory of aspect and tense is developed. The theory defines the meanings of the progressive and resultative verbal types in terms of a distinct kind of aspect, called “stage-based aspect”, and describes how tense meanings arise through reanalysis of these aspectual meanings, a process called temporalization. It is argued that progressive aspect is a basic meaning in qotel and yiqtol-L, and that resultative aspect is basic in qatal and yiqtol-S in its so-called “consecutive” form, wayyiqtol. The study investigates various verbal usages, showing where the stage-aspectual meanings are invariant and where they have been overturned as a consequence of temporalization.

    Another major question concerns the semantic difference between the forms with shared aspectual meanings. On the basis of the semiotic theories of Bühler and others, it is suggested that yiqtol-L and yiqtol-S (here: yiqtol) are distinguished from qotel and qatal with regard to their appeal function. Full appeal function characterizes utterances that prompt the listener to immediate action. Verbal forms available for this function in BH are qatal and qotel, as well as the imperative. By contrast, the appeal to action in utterances employing yiqtol is invariably non-existent, or mitigated. Hence, reduced appeal function is a semantic feature of yiqtol. This feature may explain why temporalized meanings are especially favoured by yiqtol, since non-present meaning is one among several factors that reduce the appeal function of an utterance.

    Abstract [en]

    This empirically based study aims at establishing the frequency, distribution, tenacity and the nature of errors produced by more than 700 advanced Swedish learners of French, at different university levels. The errors are classified in grammatical and lexical categories. Four grammatical categories (articles, nouns, pronouns, verbs) have been selected for a thorough examination, and examples of different types of errors are presented and commented upon. The error analysis follows, principally, the steps suggested by Corder (1974) and implies the discussion of such concepts as error, norm and usage.

    The verbs present the most frequent and tenacious errors constituting at each level about a third of all errors. The proportions of the different types of errors change according to task and level. The errors concerning tenses predominate in the translation tests, those concerning conjugations in the diagnostic test. As for pronouns, they cause 40 % of all errors in the diagnostic test (fill-in/transformation tests), 7 %-8 % in the translation tests. This reduction is partly due to the fact that many pronouns are necessarily regarded as part of the construction of a verb and classed as such. Put together, the errors concerning gender, orthography and vocabulary constitute 40 % at the advanced levels.

    The study includes a correlational analysis aiming at confirming or confuting some hypotheses regarding the interrelation, on the one hand between the results of the different parts of the two tests given during the first term of the university studies (vocabulary, grammar, metalingual knowledge), on the other hand beween the results and some external factors such as marks in French (secondary school), stay in French-speaking country, length of previous studies of French, etc. Among other things, it is shown that the students’ results in grammar are systematically better than those in vocabulary and that six years of previous studies of French do not generally lead to better results than three years’ studies.
