    The Arabic Dialect of Tillo in the Region of Siirt: (south-eastern Turkey)2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is in many respects a traditionally descriptive one which places special emphasis on socio-linguistic and language-contact phenomena. It concerns, however, a relatively unfamiliar example of involuntary cultural assimilation and probable extinction, which is not without relevance to current politics among great powers.

    The Arabic dialect of Tillo, in the region of Siirt in south-eastern Turkey, is spoken by a small isolated group of Arabs living mainly among Kurds but also among Turks. The latter represent the state of Turkey in the form of civil servants, police officers, army officers and other authorities. The official language is Turkish which is also the only language taught in schools. All television and radio programs are broadcast in Turkish, just as all newspapers are published in that language. Since Kurds constitute the vast majority in the region, north Kurdish (Kurmandji) is needed for daily conversation. Arabic has thus come to a standstill stage of development and at the same time lost status for the benefit primarily of Turkish but also of Kurdish.

    The Arabs are leaving Tillo and immigrating to the big cities in the western parts of the country. This migration is occurring so rapidly that the Arabs of Tillo are distressed that soon no Arabs will remain in the village. In the big cities, for instance Istanbul, the Arabs avoid speaking Arabic in order not to attract attention; they are afraid of being classified as tarrōr “terrorists”. The consequence of this socio-linguistic situation is that Tillo Arabic goes on losing its importance and becoming kaba “vulgar”, and since its development has already been arrested it seems destined to die out.

    Turkish impact on Tillo Arabic is immense. In accordance with Turkish phonology, the voiced consonants are pronounced voiceless in final position and in contact position before voiceless consonants. An epenthetic or prosthetic vowel is used to avoid a two-consonant cluster. Turkish particles such as the superlative particle en and the adverb hem “also, too” are often used in everyday life. Constructions similar to Turkish ones, such as compound nouns or possessive compounds, are used. The lexicon includes many borrowings and second borrowings. The latter means that a word was first borrowed into Turkish and from Turkish back into Tillo Arabic.

    A War of Words2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to come to an understanding of the meanings of words pertaining to acts of political violence in modern Arabic and Hebrew. The semantics of these terms will be established by comparison between the meaning in dictionaries of modern and classical Arabic and Hebrew, the meaning in the Koran and the Bible as well as the meaning we extract from the context in the newspapers where the terminology is found. Furthermore, the aim is to find indirect Arab and Israeli definitions of terrorism through the study of journalistic discourse describing different kinds of violence. As such it focuses on legal in contrast to illegal violence and on how Israelis and Arabs use this terminology in their propaganda against ‘the enemy’.

    A method is tested, where we measure the frequency of terms that we find in the press and that we placed under the four titles of ‘the perpetrator’, ‘the victim’, ‘the act’ and ‘the name of the enemy’. Our later conclusions are based on this frequency and the established meaning. This method may be one way to reduce the risks of bias in research of media.

    Finally, the study examines Arab and Israeli press reactions to the events of 11/9 2001 and the, still continuing, ‘War on Terrorism’.

    Passage to a new wor(l)d: Exile and restoration in Mahmoud Darwish's writings 1960-19952003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on developments of the exile motive in the Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish’s writings 1960-1995. The sources consist primarily of Darwish’s diwans of poetry and articles published in literary magazines. The theme of exile in Darwish’s writings is placed in relation to literary developments of the 20th century, especially early Modernism. Special reference is made to the use of religious mythology. Founding myths of the Abrahamitic religions - creation, the death and resurrection of Christ and Muhammad’s hijra - are particularly important. The study shows how Darwish places poetry in a position similar to that of religion in traditional society. The theoretical framework is provided by models of the religious rites de passage, based primarily on Mircea Eliade’s theory, but also on theories dealing with psychological responses to exile. Based on the rite de passage-pattern, three main strategies of responding to exile are dealt with: separation, liminality and reintegration. The study shows a gradual development of these three strategies in Darwish’s works. In the 1960s, a pattern of separation, representing the exclusion of physical and symbolical exile, is predominant. In the 1970s, liminal patterns and a quest for reintegration become the dominant models. Until 1982, the rite of passage is nearly always aborted. Only later, with the use of mythological models for “a new beginning” constituting an eschatological rupture with the past, the reintegration of self, world and word becomes possible in Darwish’s poetry.

    Egyptiska bloggare: Del av en tradition och ett uppror2012In: Årsbok/Kungl. Humanistiska Vetenskaps-Samfundet i Uppsala, ISSN 0349-0416, 109-130 p.Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I present five popular Egyptian bloggers who blog in Arabic and show their posts to be activist, at times breaking taboos with regard to what may be said publicly about the president, the government and State Security. While doing this they also adhere to a deep-seated Arabic tradition of using cultural instruments of expression. From the vantage point of Sabry Hafez’ (2011) findings with regard to despondency and gloom in Arabic literary texts from the 1900s, we find these bloggers to be vexed with the pervasive corruption, harassment from State Security and lack of democratic rights such as freedom of speech and rule of law in their society. With Hoda Elsadda (2010 and 2012) we also perceive these bloggers to be creative while voicing vibrant and diverse views in their posts. No matter how activist or radical the blogger emerges, a substantial instrument of expression may be derived from the Arabic cultural tradition of poetry in the service of resistance.

    The bloggers according to popularity ranking when they were selected during 2010: (1) Wael Abbas (Wāʾil ʿAbbās), (2) Abdel Moneim Mahmoud (ʿAbd al-Munʿim Maḥmūd), (3) Ashraf al-Anany (Ashraf al-ʿAnānī), (4) Nawara Negm (Nawwāra Najm), (5) Ahmed Shokeir (Aḥmad Shuqayr).

    Semitiska språk från Bibeln till Sveriges Yttrandefrihetsgrundlag2016Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Professuren i Semitiska språk vid Uppsala universitet instiftades 1605, då för att studera Bibeln på originalspråk. När Linné-lärjungen Peter Forsskål 1761 gav sig iväg med en forskningspexpedition till Arabien hade han redan författat sitt verk "Tankar om den borgerliga friheten" 1759. Detta verk speglar dagens liberala idéer om individens frihet att uttrycka sig. Forsskål dog av malaria i Jemen och när vi fick tryckfrihet i Sverige  hade Forsskål redan varit död i tre år. Forsskåls tankar om människans kärlek till individuell frihet och att få tänka, tro och uttrycka sig fritt lever vidare. Idag, när människor från Mellanöstern och arabvärlden flyr, bland annat därför att de inte får säga vad de önskar, eller tvingas överge sina övertygelser eller modersmål framstår studiet av Semitiska språk minst lika viktigt som för 400 år sedan.

    Abstract [en]

    Can Arab blogging, whether in English or in Arabic, be considered emerging counter-public spheres in the Arab world? And what is the impact of blogging in different Arabic mediascapes: do they broaden the boundaries for freedom of expression on political and social issues, do they test cultural/religious norms and are women empowered to exercise agency through participation? This article addresses questions such as these with respect to the Lebanese blogosphere.

    Abstract [en]

    This study contains a critical edition with an English translation of the commentary on the Book of Kings which is a part of the exegetical work the Storehouse of Mysteries by the West-Syrian scholar John Bar-Hebraeus (1226-1286). The work is based on the oldest surviving manuscript of the Storehouse of Mysteries, manuscript Florence 230 (written 1278), collated with all manuscripts which are older than the 19th century. The study also contains a description of the manuscripts of the Storehouse of Mysteries and an investigation into the sources used by Bar-Hebraeus in his commentary. Also a short study of the Syriac exegesis in its east and west traditions is supplied.

    Comparative Etymological Studies in the Western Neo-Syriac (Turoyo) Lexicon: With Special Reference to Homonyms, Related Words and Borrowings with Cultural Signification2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a comparative study of words presenting etymological problems in the Western Neo-Syriac (Turoyo) lexicon, with the principal aim of providing new etymological solutions and suggestions and giving an account of the most common linguistic processes by which various changes are carried out in the individual words studied. For the first time all important homonyms in this language are investigated with regard to their origin and use. Further, numerous words with the same radicals but of different origin, Arabic cognates and other borrowings, influence also from Kurdish, related words with different radicals, doublets, words with cultural signification and compounds are examined. The prefix 'ad- and the endings -ad, -el and -al in some adverbial formations are discussed. The development of the beġadkefat is observed. New words, new forms, new meanings and dialectal differences are recorded. The study shows that sporadic changes, reduction of the long vowels which have lost their phonemic length in closed syllables, borrowings, neologisms and folk etymologies have given rise to a relatively small number of homonymous nouns and homonymous verbal stems whose use may contextually be kept separate by various means. Homonymous nouns and homonymous verbal stems common to all dialects are few. There is a good deal of homonymous verbal roots which, as a rule, occur in different verbal stems. Hence the verbal roots are of secondary importance in relation to verbal stems. Dissimilation and assimilation are two linguistic phenomena that lie behind many of the changes carried out in the words discussed in the study. Dissimilation plays a crucial part in the change r > l in words containing the succession -r-r-. Words originally containing one of the successions -r-r- and -l-l- may be subject to dissimilation also by syncope or by haplology. Contiguous regressive assimilation, where voiced sounds and voiceless ones may become devoiced and voiced, respectively, is a fairly common phenomenon. The change s > s, partial assimilation, is of frequent occurrence in words containing r and t. Total assimilation of n occurs in several words in which it does not appear. Metatheses are observed in words with the sounds l and r. Epenthetic consonants arise in words containing the dentals. Prostheses manifest themselves in some originally biradical nouns. The syllabic structure of the language shows considerable stability. Some trisyllabic words have been reduced to disyllabic ones.
