    Namnval som social handling: Val av förnamn och samtal om förnamn bland föräldrar i Göteborg 2007–20092011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this doctoral thesis is to examine how parents in Sweden at the beginning of the twenty-first century use the process of naming as a resource to contribute to the creation of various identities for both themselves and their child. It is based on a two-component study — a postal survey and qualitative group interviews, both conducted in the city of Göteborg, Sweden — and includes parents with children born during 2007 and 2008. By combining different sources (names, surveys and interviews) and different methods (quantitative and qualitative), this study attempts to elucidate how first names and choices of first names can be given various social meanings. In contrast to previous socio-onomastic studies, this study considers not only whether naming contains any social variation, but also how and why such variation arises. The theoretical framework is a combination of onomastic, sociolinguistic, identity-theoretical and interactional theories. The results demonstrate that parents’ choice of first names for their children is an important social act. Through name choices and discussions of these choices, parents create what is known as social positioning, which in turn contributes to the creation of certain identities both for themselves and their child. A number of resources are identified which are used by parents to create different social positionings. This study also demonstrates how both macro-societal structures and interactional aspects influence this social positioning. Finally, this study argues that the observed social variation is best explained by the parents’ desire to identify with and contribute to the creation of different models for society, in which varying social values and attributes are important.

    "Det är den vanliga spöksupén, vi kallar.": Analys av en objektslös bisatstyp med kalla i dialekter och skriftspråk2010In: Svenska landsmål och svenskt folkliv, ISSN 0347-1837, Vol. 133, 7-48 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is a study of a grammatical construction consisting of a content word or a semantically heavy phrase (X), followed first by a pronoun (P) and then a finite form of the verb kalla ‘call’ (K). There may also be a som ‘as’ between X and P. The component PK, with or without a subordinator, is interpreted as a comparative clause lacking the obligatory object of the corresponding standard Swedish construction (X (som) de/man kallade det ‘X (as) they/one called it’). The main data studied are occurrences of the construction in old dialect recordings. In addition, a number of instances found in dialect dictionaries and in written Swedish are analysed.

    The analysis shows that XPK usually forms a single prosodic unit. This is an important reason for regarding the expression as a distinct grammatical construction. In the dialects focused on here, XPK is a routinised utterance format, a semi-lexicalised phrase.

    Pragmatically, the construction involves PK being tagged onto words or expressions that are considered noteworthy, for example because they are hard to understand or dialectal. According to the author, the ‘tag’ serves to underline that there is something remarkable about them.

    The construction appears to be typical of colloquial, informal styles. It is considerably more common in spoken than in written usage, and presumably also more frequent in traditional dialects than in varieties closer to standard Swedish.

    Interaktionell dialektologi: Ett forskningsområde under framväxt2012In: Folkmålsstudier, ISSN 0356-1771, Vol. 50, 9-32 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the field of interactional dialectology researchers use theories and methods from Conversation Analysis and interactional linguistics to explore different kinds of dialectal data. A dialectal utterance (as well as a standard language utterance) is seen not only as a realization of an abstract linguistic system, but as situated in a specific interactional context in which it fulfills a pragmatic, interactional function. A central research question within the field of interactional dialectology is to investigate why a certain dialect feature is used at a certain moment in a conversation, and which consequence this might have for the following turns-at-talk. This methodological approach has, inter alia, a potential to explain intra-individual speech variation within a dialect interview or another recording of dialect speakers. Another central task within the field is to describe the traditional dialect interview regarded as a communicative activity where the interviewer plays an important role, rather than some kind of neutral, objective documentation of a dialect language system.

    The primary aims of this article are to discuss conditions for the analysis of dialectal materials from an interactional perspective and present my own research in this field. My research can be described as a synthesis of Conversation Analysis, interactional linguistics, construction grammar and dialectology.

    Svansdubblerad negation i dialektinspelningar från nordöstra Götaland2012In: Folkmålsstudier, ISSN 0356-1771, Vol. 50, 33-61 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with a type of syntactic constructions where a right dislocated negation inte ‘not’ follows directly after a syntactic-pragmatic complete clause (or other syntactic unit) which in itself has a negative polarity. On the surface this type of utterance is double negated, but functionally it has (still) a negative polarity. The primary data consists of old dialect recordings (interviews) from northeastern Götaland in Sweden. Theoretically and methodologically, the study belongs to the field of interactional dialectology, which I regard as a subdiscipline of interactional linguistics.

    The prosodic analysis shows that an inte in a dislocated syntactic position normally is non-prominent and intonationally integrated in the segment that precedes it. The syntactic analysis shows that inte is almost exclusively attached to either negated main clauses or “elliptical” constructions, but not to subordinate clauses. The pragmatic, interactional analysis shows that inte-utterances often occur not only in a TCU- and turn-final position, but also in a final position in larger communicative projects/discourse units (stories etc.). Among the inte-utterance’s typical functions are to contrast, explain or clarify something previous said.

    Transkription av dialektinspelningar: Synpunkter och förslag2008In: Svenska landsmål och svenskt folkliv, ISSN 0347-1837, Vol. 131, 7-42 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna artikel jämför jag en tidigare gjord transkription av en dialektinspelning med min egen tolkning av samma samtal. Den äldre transkriptionen ansluter sig till den dialektologiska traditionen; transkriptören har använt s.k. grov beteckning. Min transkription är däremot gjord utifrån de normer som har utvecklats inom samtalsanalysen [conversation analysis]. De båda traditionernas forskningsfokus skiljer sig kraftigt från varandra, vilket avspeglas i både vilka symboler som används och vilka aspekter av samtalet som återges med stor detaljrikedom. Utifrån de skillnader som finns mellan de båda transkriptionerna för jag allmänna resonemang kring transkription i allmänhet och transkription av dialektmaterial i synnerhet. Artikeln mynnar ut i ett konkret förslag till hur man skulle kunna transkribera dialektinspelningar. Eftersom dialektarkiven står i hela forskarsamhällets och allmänhetens tjänst, menar jag det vara önskvärt om så många som möjligt skulle få nytta av de transkriptioner som förvaras där. Därför finns det anledning att infoga vissa samtalsanalytiska (sociologiska) perspektiv i transkriptionsarbetet. Mitt förslag kan enkelt uttryckt beskrivas som en kompromiss mellan den traditionella dialektologins och CA-forskningens transkriptionskonventioner. En funktionell transkription kan med fördel innehålla såväl tecken ur landsmålsalfabetet som markeringar av pauser och överlappande tal.

    "Att blotta vem jag är": Släktnamnsskick och släktnamnsbyten hos samer i Sverige 1920–20092010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to describe surname patterns and changes of surname among the Sami of Sweden. It presents the results of three studies. The first is a survey of the present-day stock of surnames (family names) among the Sami community, based on the 2005 electoral register for the Swedish Sami Parliament. It investigates the proportions of names deriving from different languages, and the commonest names in each group. The same study was carried out for different areas, showing that the northernmost parts of Sweden have a Sami name stock significantly different from that of the majority population. Further south, the stock of names is less marked, but no area is without Sami elements.

    The second study, based on archival material, concerns changes of name by Swedish Sami to newly formed surnames, over the period 1920–2004. It examines not only the names adopted, but also the ones replaced; how the name stock has been affected by different patterns of name change; and, as far as possible, who the name changers were. The study shows that, for a long time, names derived from Sami and Finnish were replaced with names formed from Swedish. This may be largely because of the stigma once attached to Sami ethnicity. More recently, Sami-language names seem to have been retained to a greater extent, possibly owing to the improved status of the culture.

    The third study looks at name changes in favour of names marked as Sami in character. The data consist in part of archive materials, but above all of interviews with three Sami informants who have themselves adopted Sami-language surnames. This study presents the informants’ thoughts on ethnicity and changes of name.

    In addition to the author’s own studies, the thesis includes a review of earlier research on Sami surnames, hereditary and non-hereditary, and a list of individual surnames with literature references regarding their origins and meanings. In the thesis, name changes are studied as a single, overall process, with an emphasis on the role of names in society, in particular as ethnic markers.

    I gatuplanet. Namnbrukarperspektiv på gatunamn i Stockholm2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to apply a name user perspective to the street names of Stockholm, with a focus on knowledge and views about names among the city’s inhabitants. On the basis of interview surveys, a picture is presented of the knowledge and views of Stockholmers regarding their city’s street names and the semantic or thematic name categories to which many of them belong; that is, the study seeks to identify general features of the ways in which the people of the city relate to their street names. Surveys were carried out in seven districts: Hedvig Eleonora parish, Hjorthagen, Fredhäll, Norra Ängby, Årsta, Fruängen and Akalla. A separate survey studied the range and associative properties of street names among Stockholmers not living in the vicinity of the streets in question.

    General findings emerging from the surveys are that people are very familiar with the names in their local area; that knowledge about these names contributes to their well-being and sense of identity and belonging; that name categories are appreciated and considered to have an orientating function; that names which are seen as elegant or distinguished are regarded as enhancing the image and perceptions of the environment in which they occur; that long names and those made up of several words may be regarded as unwieldy in practical use; and that people need and create names for more limited park and recreational areas, while formally adopted names for larger green spaces are not used or are felt to be unclear in their reference.

    Abstract [en]

    In htis article, women's names from the first half of the seventeenth century are presented and discussed on the basis of entries in parish registers from before 1660. The first part is mainly a quantitative study from the stock of baptismal names in Öster- and Västergötland. Regional differences and diachronic changes are observed, and the most frequent names are identified. The second part deals with name phrases in registers of death. An important question here is how and why women are identified by their own name, by a byname, or by reference to other individuals, usually men. The relationship between named and unnamed women is also discussed.

    Names of companion animals: Rovers in the onomasticon?2016In: Names and their environment.: Proceedings from the 25th International Congress of Onomastic Sciences / [ed] Carole Hough & Daria Izdebska, Glasgow: University of Glasgow , 2016, Vol. 5, 114-122 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The names of companion animals could, from the outside, be seen as freely roving elements in the onomasticon. There are few or no legal restrictions on their given names, so, in theory, a dog, or a cat, could have any kind of word creation as a name. Dogs and other companion animals play a larger role as family members in many countries than ever before, something that possiblyhas an influence on their names. My major aim here is to establish, from a socio-onomastic viewpoint, whether animal owners in general take advantage of this apparent liberty, or whether they restrict themselves to using otherwise well-established name groups, e.g. anthroponyms or older zoonyms. The first part of the study is devoted to dog names. A large corpus of such names used in Sweden during the last decade is examined. The features of the most popular names given to dogs are studied and their relationship to popular baby names is discussed. This is combined with a study of dog names attested only once in the corpus. The results are supplemented with some findings on general attitudes to names of companion animals, taken from a recent questionnaire survey of animal names

    Abstract [en]

    Referring to a person by his or her name is only one of several ways of identifying a person. In this paper, I will discuss some examples of different identifying means and, in particular, the usage of names, especially for women, in official records collected from several geographical areas and different socio-economic strata in 17th century Sweden. In accordance with the patriarchal and hierarchical society of that time, women were mostly denoted by their relationship to men, e.g. to their father, husband or son, and their own name isn’t always given in the notice. However, several women are recorded with their own name with no reference to any man. Some questions about this phenomenon are: Who were named? Why and when was she identified only by her name? Can the fact that a woman named on her own be seen as a sign of either high or low social status? Which women were unnamed in the records? What do these identifying strategies communicate? To penetrate these questions, I will apply a dialogical perspective in combination with gender aspects.

    Abstract [en]

    Names and Name-Bearers: On Unisex and Gender Inconsistent Names  In many cultures, one of the more important properties of a name is that a first name should indicate the bearer’s sex. This is even compulsory in some countries. Until a few years ago in Sweden, children and adults were not allowed to have first names traditionally borne by the opposite sex (genderinconsistent names). Some political parties and interest groups (e.g. LGBTQ-groups)6 regarded this attitude as discriminatory and have worked against it. After a court decision in 2009, the Swedish Tax Agency (where decisions on first names are taken) no longer regards genderinconsistent names as inappropriate for either adults or children. Gender-neutral or unisex names have, however, been in use for a long time. In the first major part of this paper I examine, through the results of three attitude surveys whether this new and more liberal view has any popular support among the Swedish people, i.e. whether people consider it okay to give boys’ names to girls and vice versa. All three surveys show that a majority of the respondents are against giving gender-inconsistent names to babies but that the attitude towards adults adopting such names is more allowing. In the second part of the paper, the results from an empirical study on the current use of unisex and genderinconsistent names for babies are discussed. My findings confirm earlier American studies showing that more unisex names have a background as male names than female names, that they are often without a long tradition in the country, and that many of them are short forms or pet forms stemming from different names, both male and female. However, my findings differ from those in the American studies in that most of the names used for children of both sexes are rather uncommon in Sweden.

    Names of companion animals – new patterns and structures

    In this paper, contemporary given names in Sweden to dogs and cats, the two most well-known species of companion animals, are presented and examined. Some of their morphological and semantic features are discussed. The author shows that a majority of the animal names are loans from the anthroponomasticon, mostly first names and pet forms of first names. The correspondence between the popular names for female animals and the popular names given to baby girls is striking. In contrast, popular names for male animals are chosen from a larger and more varied pool, which includes names of well-known personalities, both real and fictitious. The stock of traditional animal names is also larger for male animals. A tendency to give out-dated boy names to dogs is discussed and the author presents, through statistics of new baby names, the tentative explanation that this is a way of making these names acceptable as names for little boys again. The contemporary habit of giving companion animals in Sweden hitherto unknown or rare personal names is also discussed, and it is argued that this usage functions as a trial balloon for these names so that they later can be given to babies.
