    Mellan två stolar: Författarskap i Sverige med ungerskspråkig bakgrund 1945–20152017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to map and analyse literature written by authors with a Hungarian-language background who moved to Sweden between 1945 and 2015, and who have published literary works in book format. From the perspective of the sociology of literature, this thesis focuses on publishing channels and possibilities, the authors’ and their works places in the literary value system and feed-back in the form of reviews, but also choice of language, theme, and genre. The approach of the research for this thesis is new in Hungarian and Swedish literary studies, as the literary works are analysed irrespective of the language in which they are written. The research corpus consists of both Hungarian and Swedish literary works and one book in English.

    The second chapter presents the research that Hungarian researchers have conducted on Hungarian migration literature and offers an overview of the questions and results arising from this research.

    The authors with a Hungarian-language background in Sweden were divided into four groups, based on the time of their migration to Sweden. Four chapters, which comprise the analytic part of the thesis, present and analyse the author groups and their literary activities regarding language, purpose of any code-switching, chosen theme, and genre. The first group consists of authors who migrated to Sweden during the decade after the Second World War (1945–1955). The second group came between 1956 and 1958 in the aftermath of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. The third group consists of Hungarians who moved to Sweden during the communist era, between 1959 and 1989. Finally, the fourth group came after the fall of communism (1990–2015). As many as half of the authors chose either Hungarian or Swedish as their language and there are surprisingly few authors working in both languages. The publishing channels depend on the literary works language and theme, and only half of the books have been published at established publishers.

    The literary works of these authors are categorized as Swedish-Hungarian migration literature. Literary history works until now have neglected these type of literatures, but it is imperative that the study of literature finds a way to acknowledge, include, position, and group them.

    Grammar for adjusting assumptions in interaction: the Estonian enclitic -gi/-ki2011In: Journal of Pragmatics, ISSN 0378-2166, Vol. 43, no 12, 2879-2896 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article shows how a bound morpheme, the enclitic -gi/-ki in Estonian, functions in the domain of interpersonal relations and mutual knowledge calibration in conversation. Speakers use the enclitic with verbs in order to adjust some assumption previously held by themselves or by their interlocutors. When formulating contributions in talk, participants always display assumptions about matters at hand as well as about what they believe other participants know. Furthermore, when accomplishing a first action in a sequence, they display an assumption that the next speaker will align in her action. All these assumptions are subject to adjustment by other participants who may present themselves as more knowledgeable on the subject matter or more entitled to provide opinions about it. The enclitic is used in reactive turns to indicate better epistemic access and higher authority in relation to a prior speaker, which may result in a disaligning action.

    Hinnangu grammatikast [On the grammar of assessments]2010In: Eesti ja soome-ugri keeleteaduse ajakiri = Journal of estonian and finno-ugric linguistics, ISSN 1736-8987, Vol. 1, no 2, 147-161 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [et]

    Artikkel käsitleb lauseid, mis algavad hinnangusõnaga ja mida on traditsiooniliselt käsitletud aluslauseliste tarinditena. Võttes arvesse morfosüntaktilisi, semantilisi, järjendilisi ja intonatsioonilisi piiranguid, argumenteeritakse, et pigem tuleks tarindit analüüsida kui kommentaari ja lause kombinatsiooni. Kommentaar sisaldab hinnangusõna või -fraasi ja lause hinnatavat. Hinnangulausel on seega eesti keeles oma eripärane grammatiline vorm. Tarindi peamiseks eeliseks on võimalus kommenteerida eelnevat, minnes samas kohe edasi järgmise vaatenurga või teema juurde. Materjal pärineb nii suulistest kui kirjalikest allikatest ja peamiselt suhtluskeskkondadest, st suulisest vestlusest ja interneti jututubadest.

    From discourse pattern to epistemic marker: Estonian (ei) tea 'don't know'.2006In: Nordic Journal of Linguistics, ISSN 0332-5865, Vol. 29, no 2, 173–200- p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     

    In contemporary informal Estonian, the negative verb form ei tea ‘don’t know’ has become a routinized part of generic questions, in which the agent is left unexpressed. This pattern is in accordance with the general impersonal and reference-avoiding style of conversing in Estonia. The study outlines a continuum of synchronic usages from the original expressions sa ei tea ‘you don’t know’ and ma ei tea ‘I don’t know’ to the epistemic usages of (ei) tea, which are specifically tied to the speech act of questioning. The data is interactional and the analysis relies on the interpretation of (ei) tea-questions by the participants themselves, following the methodology of conversation analysis. It is demonstrated that the development of (ei) tea displays phonological and semantic erosion, pragmatic strengthening, subjectification, and decategorialization. Thus, grammaticalization theory is here combined with interactional linguistics in order to display the emergence of a grammatical structure from a discourse pattern.

    Pro-forms as projective devices in interaction2011In: Discourse processes, ISSN 0163-853X, E-ISSN 1532-6950, Vol. 48, no 6, 404-431 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Cataphoric pronouns have been characterized as being co-referential with a word that comes later. Considering that talk is produced in real time, with little benefit of knowing what is yet to come, participants understand cataphoric pro-forms to be projecting more talk. Projection is a crucial interactive resource, as it enables speakers to align with the ongoing talk and to initiate subsequent contributions in a timely manner. The study looks at how Estonian pro-forms are systematically used to project either a word (phrase) or a clause in interaction. The patterns discussed are not universal and it will be suggested that projecting word (phrases) with pro-forms is a characteristic of a non-prepositional language with no articles, and that pro-form projection can be especially useful in a free word order language. As many pro-forms do not end up with a co-referential word, projection provides a better account of their function. The paper underlines the necessity of studying grammar as a temporal phenomenon.

    Compromising progressivity: 'No'-prefacing in estonian2012In: Pragmatics: Quarterly Publication of the International Pragmatics Association, ISSN 1018-2101, Vol. 22, no 1, 119-146 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Negative polar particles have generally been characterized as items for expressing disagreement or responding negatively to polar questions. What has been lacking in these accounts is attention to embodied activities. This paper studies the usage of the Estonian negative particle ei as a preface in real-time activities, showing that it halts the ongoing action, often for the sake of achieving intersubjective understanding and establishing epistemic authority. The paper shows how other matters besides logic and truth-conditions define the meaning of the negative particle. Analysis of linguistic function demands transgressing the boundaries of language and scrutiny of co-present interaction in its temporal emergence. The paper argues that several discourse functions of ei are also more accurately described from the vantage point of its usage in multimodal face-to-face settings than from the logical properties that the item happens to display in limited sequential contexts after yes/no interrogatives.

    The terms of not knowing2011In: The Morality of Knowledge in Interaction / [ed] Tanya Stivers, Lorenza Mondada, Jacob Steensig, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press , 2011, 184-206 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In some sequential positions in conversation, knowledge displays are systematically due. Information questions make the recipient accountable for providing an informative answer and mai tea (‘I don’t know’ in Estonian) serves as an account for not doing so. This paper looks at mai tea in responsive turns in everyday conversation in Estonian, showing parallels in Swedish and Russian.

     

    Prior conversation analytic studies on “no knowledge” responses have been based on institutional interaction (Clayman 2001; Drew 1992; Hutchby 2002) where knowledge as well as the right to extort it are distributed according to the participants’ institutional roles. In everyday interaction a “no knowledge” response is treated as a joint responsibility. Insofar as questions should be addressed to knowing recipients, a mai tea response implies that the question was irrelevant, inapposite or posed to a wrong recipient. The answerer can affiliatively show her understanding of the design of the question by giving a further account. In the case of stand-alone mai tea, which constitutes a disaffiliative action, the questioner is responsible for redesigning the question. The epistemic claim is thus used for handling interactional contingencies. The paper looks at how participants manage the accountability for not knowing, and how this plays out in terms of speaker-recipient affiliation.

    Clause combining and sequenced actions: the Estonian complementizer and pragmatic particle et2008In: Crosslinguistic Studies of Clause Combining.: The multifunctionality of conjunctions / [ed] Ritva Laury, Amsterdam/Philadelphia: John Benjamins , 2008, 125-152 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The usage patterns of the Estonian complementizer et in sequentially embedded actions show that it functions as an evidential particle. In oral as well as Internet interaction, clause-initial et attributes upcoming content to the previous speaker/writer and thereby incorporates another voice. Clause-combining with et is thus a common achievement of the participants performing sequenced actions in real time. The development of this complementizer and evidential from an original deictic item most probably started in reported speech, where the recurrent repetition of et may have resulted in the incorporation of the last instance into the following clause.

    Dual number in the North Saami dialect of Ofoten and Sør-Troms2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study deals with grammatical number in the North Saami dialect of Ofoten and Sør-Troms, Norway. Five informants were interviewed and the material was collected both through free speech and elicitation. The study shows that in this dialect, plural forms are used when referring to two individuals. One of the informants is able to produce personal pronouns in the dual, but even this informant usually uses plural forms when referring to two individuals. The material from Ofoten and Sør-Troms is also compared with material from the Guovdageaidnu, Gárasavvon and Čohkkiras dialects. In that material, three informants were interviewed. Furthermore, two previously undescribed reciprocal pronoun constructions are presented.

    Der Illativ Singular im Ullisjaure-Samischen2010In: Finnisch-ugrische Mitteilungen, ISSN 0341-7816, Vol. 2008/2009, no 32/33, 417-424 p.Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    It is well established that the Saami dialects form a chain from South Saami all the way to the East Saami dialects on the Kola peninsula. In this chain the Saami dialect of Ullisjaure has been regarded as belonging to the South Saami dialect group rather than to Ume Saami. Obviously this opinion is due to the lack of gradation in Ullisjaure Saami and to the fact that it is (was) spoken south of the river Ume älven. However, if we take other elements of this dialect into consideration, we arrive at another picture of its status in the dialect chain. In the formation of the illative singular of bisyllabic nouns, the Ullisjaure dialect has developed an ending of its own, , in two stem types. This ending offers a parallel to the development in Proto-Saami and it is based on the Proto-Saami allomorph *-jen, not on *-sen as in South Saami. Consequently, the dialect of Ullisjaure should be regarded as an Ume Saami dialect and reconstructions of the Proto-Saami illative singular ending as first and foremost *-sen could be questioned.

    Tartu linguists in exile

    The exodus of some 70,000 people from estonia to Finland, Sweden, and Germany at the end of the Second World War included a number of scientists and scholars. The biobibliography of Estonian scholars and scientists abroad 1944–1983, compiled by Teodor Künnapas and published in 1984, lists 28 linguists who have been active in linguistics or philology outside Estonia. This number includes scholars schooled and even born abroad. If we turn to Estonian and Uralic linguistics, 6 out of 8 linguists of pre-war Tartu university joined the stream of refugees and managed to continue their scholarly activities after they left Estonia. Their work and devotion resulted in several outstanding achievements, now recognised as most valuable contributions to Estonian linguistics, e.g. “Estnisches etymoligisches Wörterbuch” by Julius Mägiste (published posthumously in Helsinki, 1982–83, 12 volumes), “Eesti keele mõisteline sõnaraamat/Dictionnaire analogique de la lange estonienne” by Andrus Saareste (Stockholm 1958–64, 4 volumes; index Uppsala, 1979), “Standard Estonian Grammar” by Valter Tauli (Uppsala, 1973, 1983, 2 volumes; also published in Estonian 1972 and 1980), and “Lõuna-Eesti murded” (South Estonian dialects) by Mihkel Toomse, a 30-volume manuscript now held by the University of Turku, Finland.

    "Ungerska för rötternas skull": Språkval och identitet bland andragenerationens ungrare i Sverige och Finland.2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a comparative sociolinguistic study which describes and compares language choice among people with Hungarian background in Sweden and Finland and studies their views on the importance of the Hungarian language and Hungarian cultural heritage for identity. The future prospects of language maintenance and language shift and differences between the Swedish-Hungarians and the Finnish-Hungarians are discussed.

    A survey was completed among 50 Swedish-Hungarian informants and 38 Finnish-Hungarian informants during 2006. The survey was supplemented by in-depth interviews with 15 informants during 2007.

    The majority language, either Swedish or Finnish, is much more active in the second-generation Hungarians’ lives than Hungarian is. Hungarian is mostly used in the domain of family relations. The language choices made today are dependent on the informant’s situation during childhood, particularly the parents’ usage of the language and the ability to learn and use Hungarian, chiefly gained through contact with the parents’ mother country and other Hungarian speakers.

    For some informants, having Hungarian roots forms the sole foundation for belonging, while for others it is this heritage combined with the culture, the ability to use the language or specific character traits. The Hungarian background is most often seen as a treasure offering diversity in life. Finnish-Hungarians are generally more positive about their Hungarian background, have better competence in the language and a greater awareness of the culture than Swedish-Hungarians. The Hungarian language plays a central though often symbolic role.

    The most important conditions for minority language preservation are language competence together with the desire and opportunity to use it; whereof the largest deficit among second-generation Hungarians is knowledge of the Hungarian language. Only one-fourth of the informants have all of the conditions necessary to be able to maintain the language, which means that Hungarian is an endangered minority language in Sweden and Finland.

    Samiska ord för ord: Att mäta lexikalt avstånd mellan språk2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Most of the classical methods of language and dialect classification are based on a diachronic analysis of phonological differences between the language varieties concerned. Because of this fact, such classifications are not always a reliable basis for describing the current distances between varieties, since diachronic differences and similarities do not automatically produce the same results as synchronic comparisons. Furthermore, phonological coincidences do not have the same relevance as lexical ones when it comes to the level of mutual understanding, which must be regarded as an important factor in describing current linguistic distances. As one of the most important aims of this thesis, therefore, a new method is presented for the classification of genetically related linguistic varieties, based on synchronic lexical comparisons. The ultimate purpose of this lexical method is not to supersede the phonological approach, but to complement it.

    The research corpus consists primarily of a certain number of the most frequent words of the varieties analysed . This basic vocabulary is assumed to most adequately represent the lexicon of a language or a dialect. As a contrast, Swadesh words (i.e. notions belonging to the historical basic vocabulary, which have been expressed by words in languages for thousands of years) are also analysed, representing a different kind of basic vocabulary. The main aim of the study is to apply the new method to some of the Saami languages, as their linguistic classification has always been problematic – linguists have classified them using similar methods, but with differing results. As a reference to the new findings concerning varieties of Saami, the method has been applied to other Finno-Ugric languages and also, to some extent, to the North Germanic and a number of Romance languages.

    The past, present and future of the Pite Saami language: Sociological factors and revitalization efforts2011In: Nordic Journal of Linguistics, ISSN 0332-5865, E-ISSN 1502-4717, Vol. 34, no 3, 295-329 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our paper is a report on the past, current and future state of the endangered Pite Saami language (aka: Arjeplog Saami) spoken in Swedish Lapland. Our primary data come from interviews with Pite Saami individuals and our field observations. We estimate the vitality of Pite Saami based on the UNESCO Language Vitality Scale, taking into consideration factors such as the number of speakers, language attitudes and the quality of documentation. We also discuss the possible reasons for the decline of Pite Saami, report on the speakers' views of other Saami languages and Swedish, consider whether there is a specific Pite Saami identity, describe revitalization efforts already taking place, and discuss the future prospects of the language.

    Akoella ja susilla on mualima pilattu: Naisen arvostus Suomen kansan sananparsikirjassa2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [fi]

    Tässä työssä olen tutkinut Suomen kansan sananparsikirjan (1995) kaikki sananparret. Tarkoitukseni oli selvittää kirjan sananparsien lukumäärä (kvantitatiivinen menetelmä) sekä, miten naista arvostetaan näissä sananparsissa (kvalitatiivinen ja kvantitatiivinen menetelmä rinnakkain). Tutkimuskysymykset ovat: Onko kirjan materiaalissa vähemmän naisista kuin miehistä kertovia sananparsia? Suhtaudutaanko kirjan sananparsissa naiseen useammin kielteisesti kuin myönteisesti? Suhtaudutaanko naimisissa olevaan naiseen positiivisemmin kuin naimattomaan, eli naiseen, joka ei ole naimisissa? Miten naisia kuvataan? Mitä tulokset kertovat naisen arvostuksesta maalaisyhteisössä? Onko kulttuurien välisiä eroja verrattuna aikaisempiin tutkimuksiin? Tutkimukseni mukaan kirjassa on 8555 sananpartta. Näissä mies mainitaan useammin kuin nainen. Naimissa olevaan naiseen suhtaudutaan negatiivisemmin kuin naimattomaan. Kulttuurimallin mukaisessa hierarkiassa, jossa on agraaritalouden sekä kotieläinten hierarkia, naista arvostetaan ja kuvataan vertaamalla häntä hyvään hevoseen, joka on ahkera, hyväluontoinen ja terve. Naisen paikka oli koti ja hänen tuli olla huoneentaulun mukaisesti alamainen miehelle. Naimaton nainen kuvataan kauppatavarana, jonka arvon mies määrää. Hänen hyviä ominaisuuksiaan olivat kauneus, siveys sekä kuuliaisuus ja huonoja ominaisuuksia edellä mainittujen ominaisuuksien puuttuminen tai vastakohdat. Suomalaisissa, ruotsalaisissa ja saksalaisissa tutkimuksissa on likipitäen samanlainen naisen negatiivinen arvostus, mutta esimerkiksi ambomaalaisissa sananlaskuissa naista arvostetaan positiivisesti. Edellä mainitusta tutkimuksesta poiketen äiti on mainittu aineistossa useammin kuin joka toisessa sananparressa neutraalisti.
