    Vom Umgang mit den Zeitgenossen: Gegenwartsdarstellung und zeitgenössische Kunst in Silke Scheuermanns Shanghai Performance2018In: Erzählen von Zeitgenossenschaft: Zur Darstellung von Zeitgeschichte in deutschsprachiger Gegenwartsliteratur / [ed] Edgar Platen, Linda Karlsson Hammarfeldt, München: IUDICIUM Verlag GmbH, 2018Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    In Shanghai, der „Fortschrittsphantasmagorie aus Stein und Stahl“ (FAZ, 11. 2. 2011) bilden Globalisierung, Innovationsdruck und neue Medien den Rahmen für die Geschichte einer modernen berufstätigen jungen Frau, die als Assistentin der berühmten Performance-Künstlerin Margot Wincraft arbeitet. Tätig in der schnelllebigen internationalen Kunstszene versucht die Protagonistin ihr Leben zu gestalten und gleichzeitig ständig wechselnde Bekanntschaften privater und geschäftlicher Art mit dem Bedürfnis nach Kontinuität zu vereinbaren. In den rasanten spatio-temporalen Veränderungen werden Mitmenschen zu enigmatischen Zeichen der Zeit, denn diesem harten Geschäft bleiben ihr viele Zeitgenossen und das veränderliche Zeitgeschehen bis zum Ende ein Rätsel. Auch an der Figur der Künstlerin wird die Frage nach Verstrickung und Schuld gestellt. Grundlegende Fragen des Lebens umfassen eben doch größere Zeiträume als die raschen Entscheidungen der trendbewussten Szene. In diesem Aufsatz wird die Darstellung der vergehenden Zeit des „Jetzt-Augenblickes“ im Verhältnis zu Gestern und Morgen aufgezeigt. Das Zeitgenössische erscheint dabei ein wie ein Lichtkegel, der die Orientierung in die Vergangenheit und die Zukunft eher erschwert als erleichtert.

    Los murmullos improbables: La representación del Realismo mágico en la novela Pedro Páramo de Juan Rulfo desde la perspectiva estructural-semiótica2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The object of this study is to investigate the structure and the representation of Magical Realism in the novel Pedro Páramo by the Mexican author Juan Rulfo. The intention is to show the reader of this study some distinguished aspects of the Magical Realism and how this aspects are shown in the novel. The analysis is made with the help of some theories of how the structure of a text works. We have then compared the structure with some general aspects of the Magical Realism. We are bringing up different parts such as the topic, the characters and the room.

    Furthermore this study is based on the premise that many people characterize this novel being one of the first Latin-American novels using Magical Realism, but also making use of a complex structure that easily confuse the reader and the interpretation of the novel.

    Our study shows that the structure of Pedro Páramo is very extraordinary but at the same time the novel contains many general aspects of the Magical Realism. One example is the timeaspect, jumping back and forth. Another is the symbolism between the nature and some different scenarios of the story. Last but not least we have the topic of death.

    The aim of the essay is mainly to bring some clearness and to help other readers to interpret and analyze this fantastic novel.

    Att läsa för att lära: Om ordförståelse i ämnet historia hos gymnasieelever med svenska som andraspråk2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie undersöker brister i ordförståelsen i ämnet historia hos elever med svenska somandraspråk. Forskningsfrågorna är:Vilka ord tycker eleverna, både elever med svenska som andraspråk och elevermed svenska som modersmål, är svåra i historieboken?Vilka ord tror lärarna att eleverna har svårt med?Hur korrelerar lärarnas uppfattningar med elevernas?Sjutton elever med svenska som andraspråk läste två textutdrag ur två läromedel i historia A.De markerade ord som de inte förstod. För undersökningen valdes text 2 ut. För att ta reda påhur lärare tänkte om vilka ord som var svåra i ämnet historia fick dessutom fyra läraremarkera vilka ord de trodde att eleverna hade svårt att förstå. Utifrån de markerade svåraorden genomfördes ett kvalitativt ordkunskapstest med utvalda småord som eleverna ochlärarna i stort sett inte hade markerat. Denna fick gruppen av elever med svenska somandraspråk men också en kontrollgrupp av elever med svenska som modersmål besvara.Lärarna markerade olika många ord, flest ämnesspecifika, men trodde att eleverna förstod90–98 % av hela texten. Flest ord markerade läraren i svenska som andraspråk och minst ordmarkerade modersmålsläraren. Eleverna med svenska som andraspråk markerade 36 ord ocheleverna i kontrollgruppen 17. De markerade att de förstod 80–85 % av texten.Resultatet i ordkunskapstestet visar tydligt att kontrollgruppen i stor utsträckning förstårorden i testet och är cirka 20 till 35 poäng bättre än elever med svenska som andraspråk. Detär dessutom liten eller ingen skillnad i ordförståelsetestet mellan elever med svenska somandraspråk, oavsett om de varit 1,5 år eller 17 år i Sverige. Sammantaget betyder detta attelever med svenska som andraspråk förstår betydligt mindre av texten än de säger sig göra,men detta gäller också för elever med svenska som modersmål. Ytterligare ett resultat är attlärarna i denna undersökning enbart har en vag uppfattning om vilka ord som elever medsvenska som andraspråk inte förstår, vilket kan vara ett pedagogiskt problem.

    Ta sig i kragen: En kvalitativ studie om relationen mellan samarbetsprincipen, metaforer och liknelser i samtal2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här studien är att undersöka hur metaforer och liknelser inverkar på ömsesidig förståelse i samtal. Som teoretisk utgångspunkt har jag använt Grices (1989) teori om konversationella implikaturer samt Lakoff & Johnsons (1980) teori om konceptuella metaforer, Stålhammars (1997) teori om förståelse av metaforer och Levinsons (1983) kritik av Grice för dennes påstående om metaforer som brott mot samarbetsprincipen vid konversation. Min analysmetod är samtalsanalys, Conversation Analysis. Materialet för uppsatsen består av transkriberade utdrag ur ett radioprogram som bjuder in lyssnare att ringa in och tala om ett förutbestämt ämne med programledaren och i det här fallet även en bisittare. Resultatet visar att det finns fall där metaforer går obemärkt förbi och inte skapar problem för den ömsesidiga förståelsen i samtalet, men det finns även exempel på att bruk av metaforer och liknelser försvårar förståelsen.

    Läsutveckling i år 1: Lärare beskriver hur de arbetar med läsutveckling2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det huvudsakliga syftet med denna undersökning är att spegla hur lärare beskriver arbetet med läsutveckling i år 1. Jag har utgått ifrån en kvalitativ undersökningsmetod och gjort samtalsintervjuer med sex lärare. Det jag funnit är att lärarna vid skolstart följer upp förskolans arbete med språklig medvetenhet. Elevernas förmåga att kunna urskilja ljud i ord och att kunna sätta ihop ljud till ord testas. Lärarna kontrollerar också vilka bokstäver eleverna känner till och om de kan läsa. Under höstterminen arbetar man med en bokstav i veckan. Eleverna arbetar individuellt i arbetsböcker och tränar läsning på olika nivåer och i olika böcker. Motivationen anser lärarna vara en viktig del och mycket görs för att skapa lust och intresse. Lärarna ger också eleverna läxor i olika omfattning. Elevernas läsutveckling följs upp genom testning, genom kontinuerliga iakttagelser, genom olika kartläggningsmaterial, genom att ge tid för att göra klart arbetsuppgifter och genom speciallärarstöd.

    Plätscherbrunnen und Fernwehglitzern: Zur Übersetzung von Nominalkomposita aus einem deutschen Reisebericht ins Schwedische2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates strategies used when translating compound nouns from German to Swedish. The source text translated and used for the analysis stems from the travel book Couchsurfing im Iran. Meine Reise hinter verschlossene Türen by Stephan Orth (2015). The focus of the study is twofold: 1) examining established compounds and 2) ad hoc compounds. The quantitative part of the analysis is based on Fleischer/Barz’ (2007) morphological classification of compound nouns and Vinay/Darbelnet’s (1995/2004) translation procedures, and also forms the basis for the qualitative analysis.

    The quantitative analysis shows that while nearly 60% of the established compound nouns were translated literally, quite a large number were rendered using other strategies, mainly paraphrases with nominal phrases. The translations of the ad hoc compounds showed the reverse pattern: only 36% were translated literally, while nearly 60% were translated with nominal phrases.

    The qualitative analysis suggests four major explanations for these shifts. The first is morphological limitation, where the Swedish language in some instances does not allow a certain word to be used as a compound modifier. The second is language preference, where a tendency towards a more verbal paraphrase in Swedish was noticed. The third is based on Toury’s law of growing standardization, which states that translations tend to be more explicit, in this case preferring longer and more transparent paraphrases to denser compounds. The fourth explanation is the lexical gap where ad hoc compounds proved to be particularly difficult to translate when one of their units did not have a direct counterpart in Swedish.

    ¿Cómo influye el grado de la motivación intrínseca del aprendiente sobre la intensidad y variabilidad del aprendizaje del vocabulario?: Un estudio sobre la motivación y las estrategias de aprendizaje del vocabulario en aprendientes adultos de ELE en España2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study is based on the answers of 106 international students of Spanish as a foreign language from three different private schools in Madrid. The purpose of this paper is to study, firstly, whether or how the intrinsic motivation of adult Spanish learners, their choice of strategies and the time they spend on vocabulary learning outside of the school, are influenced by the their age, gender or mother tongue. Secondly, the aim of this study is to identify whether learners with a higher degree of intrinsic motivation use more of their free time on vocabulary learning and whether they use a greater variety of vocabulary learning strategies than learners with a lesser degree of intrinsic motivation. Apart from the learning intensity and strategic variety, there is the aim of finding particular strategies preferred by the two different motivation groups. The hypothesis regarding the first part of the study is that, while gender and mother tongue probably won't influence the students' intrinsic motivation or the time they spend on vocabulary learning outside of the classroom, age, and in that sense, responsibility, will. Also, learners from different parts of the world are likely to apply different strategies in order to learn and remember the vocabulary so the mother tongue is important regarding their choice of strategies. The hypothesis regarding the second part of this study is that learners with a high degree of intrinsic motivation will use more of their time on vocabulary learning, they will apply a greater variety of vocabulary learning strategies and are more likely to use mnemotechnics and look for conversation possibilities than learners with a lesser degree of intrinsic motivation. The evidence from this empirical study partly supports the hypothesis. Gender had influence on the participants' intrinsic motivation. The evidence suggests that female learners have a higher degree of intrinsic motivation than the male learners. Correlations were found between the metacognitive and cognitive learning strategies of the Romanic and Germanic language group suggesting that learners with a Romanic mother tongue tend to use more metacognitive strategies than any other language group of the research. As for the Germanic mother tongue, the evidence suggest that learners belonging to this group tend to use more cognitive strategies than learners with a Romanic mother tongue. Also, the research results suggest that learners with a higher degree of intrinsic motivation use more time on vocabulary learning. Furthermore, the results indicate that learners with a higher degree of the intrinsic motivation tend to use more memory strategies than those learners with a lower degree of intrinsic motivation.

    Blogg + Svenska = SANT?: Bloggande i undervisningen i svenska på gymnasiet2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    In this text the attitudes towards and using of blogs in teaching Swedish to

    teenagers will be explored. The results are based on a survey made amongst 17

    teachers and 58 students from all over Sweden. The end results show that the

    usage of blog still hasn’t found a permanent way into the classrooms, but has an

    appeal to and is being used by predominantly younger teachers both, male and

    female, with a positive response from students regardless of gender. The

    conclusion is that using web tools like the blog is an easy first step for schools to

    connect to the digital society of the 21

    stcentury and take advantage of the perks

    available in the digital classroom.

    Abstract [en]

    English title: "Motivated system technician wanted" A study of the relationship between two parts in job advertisements". The purpose of this study is to describe the linguistics of job advertisements. The focus is on discursive practice and how the relation between employer and the proposed employee is created through the process of communication in job advertisements. The method concists of two parts: A critical discourse analysis using the three dimensional model for critical discourse analysis by Fairclough and a text analysis inspired by Hellspong & Ledin. 40 job advertisements were examined and the analysis revealed that the majority belongs to the category traditional job advertisement and a minority uses more than one discourse. The linguistic analysis shows elements that increase communication between transmitters and receivers.

    Skatteverkets skriftliga bemötande: En fallstudie av ett bra skriftligt bemötande i momsbeslut2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här studien undersöker om närvaron av några utvalda textdrag i tre omskrivna textversioner har betydelse för hur väl mottagarna känner sig bemötta, jämfört med i tre momsbeslut från Skatteverket där dessa textdrag saknas. Syftet med studien är att studera om myndighetsmakt går att förena med ett bra skriftligt bemötande. Studien har genomförts genom intervjuer där informanterna, tre företagare och tre skattetjänstemän, fick ta ställning till originaltexten från Skatteverket och en omskriven textversion. Intervjuerna har analyserats med hjälp av Hellspong och Ledins analysmodell på interpersonell och ideationell nivå.  Resultatet visar att både företagarna och skattetjänstemännen pekar ut de utvalda textdragen (direkt tilltal, dialog, förståelse för mottagarens situation, förklara beslutet pedagogiskt och be om ursäkt om något blivit fel) som betydelsefulla för ett bra bemötande. Resultatet tyder på att det går att förena myndighetsmakt med ett bra skriftligt bemötande genom att använda de utvalda textdragen i myndighetsbesluten.

    Abstract [en]

    There is often a relationship between perception and production in second language acquisition, depending on phonological transfer from the speaker’s first language (L1). In a production study of Karen speakers learning Swedish as their second language (L2) it appears that they have difficulties learning the pronunciation of Swedish, especially final stops. In order to find out if Karen speakers perceive phonological contrasts in Swedish words produced by a Swedish native speaker, a perception test was constructed. The results indicate a phonological transfer from L1 to L2. Another observation is the role of age during second language acquisition.

    Vowel length contrast and word stress in Somali-accented Swedish2014In: COPAL Concordia Working Papers in Applied Linguistics: Proceedings New Sounds 2013, 2014, Vol. 5, p. 771-782Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years the situation on the Horn of Africa has meant that the number of people in Sweden whose mother tongue is Somali has increased. To better understand the specific difficulties for Somali speakers when learning Swedish as a second language, we need more knowledge about the differences as well as similarities between the two languages. Although there is a vowel length contrast in both languages, this study shows that speakers with Somali L1 have difficulty distinguishing between long and short vowels and consonants in the syllable in Swedish words, which makes native listeners confused. When producing minimal pairs with distinctive lexical word stress the L2‐learners do not use the same cues as native speakers, namely duration and pitch. These findings are important for the development of pedagogical strategies when teaching Somali speakers Swedish as their second language.

    SPRÅKUTVECKLINGENS MÅSTEN: En studie om hur omorganisationen av svenska som andraspråk på en gymnasieskola har lett till ökad motivation och därmed språkutveckling2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is about the school subject Swedish as a second language and the aim was to document and to evaluate a reorganization of the same at an upper secondary school. The aim was also to evaluate what the students think of their own language development, their views on culture and identity and if their motivation has increased after the reorganization as well as after working with a theme that was about culture. The method that has been used is conversation with the teachers of this subject, a questionnaire and interviews with students who have experienced the reorganization. The results show that the teachers have managed to increase the students’ language development and motivation for the subject by reorganizing it. After the reorganization the teachers have taught on the basis of themes and this study describes one of these, which is called Language, Culture and Identity. This theme has led to an increased awareness for words such as identity, ethnicity and culture. Furthermore, the described reorganization has led to better documentation of the students’ work in class which has turned out to be very helpful, for teachers as well as students. Apart from a better language development the teachers see that the student absence has decreased and the status of the subject has improved among students and teachers of other subjects at the school.

    Abstract [en]

    The present study deals with the translation of a text about tourism and gastronomy. The analysis focuses on the translation of cultural words and terminology. The aim of the study was to analyse the translation problems that may arise in an academic text dealing with tourism and gastronomy, and see what strategies are usable to handle these problems. The translation strategies that are used in the analysis are Vinay & Darbelnet’s (2008) and Newmark’s (1988). A number of different translation problems were addressed, for instance how to deal with borrowings and with cultural adaptations.

    How to translate Guitar Techniques: Translating terminology2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The intention of this essay is to illustrate and describe how to overcome various difficulties that may arise when translating terminology, in this case within the field of music, and which strategies may be helpful doing so. The texts dealt with under the analysis are four articles from the magazine Guitar Techniques which deals specifically with how to play certain songs on the guitar. The essay focuses on terminology, additions and omissions. More precisely it focuses on Vinay and Darbelnet’s translation strategies concerning translation in general and Ingo’s overview on word-formation possibilities when creating a new term. Furthermore, the study focuses on what grounds additions and omissions can be made and how to apply this when there is trouble in finding a good translation for a term.

    The conclusion reached was that knowing at least the most common translation strategies are of great aid since terminology most often cannot just be found by using dictionaries.

    Music in Butterfly Burning2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis discusses the role of music and musical sounds in Butterfly Burning by Yvonne Vera. It analyses the way that Vera has used music interlinked with the action of the novel.  This thesis analyses a few areas where music is represented and is important such as: music as an element of healing/forgiveness; music as an element of hope; music as an element of despair; music as an element of working life and the absence of music.  This thesis also briefly discusses who the narrator of the novel is and Vera’s writing technique that incorporates images with hypothetical sounds.

     

    The conclusion shows that music and musical sounds are important to the novel.  It also shows that the music in Butterfly Burning can be compared to the music in a film.  Vera has managed to combine the story of the novel and the description of music so that it becomes one inseparable unit.

    När alla går iväg: En studie om hur utanförskap gestaltas i bilderböcker2016Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study is to investigate how social exclusion is portrayed in four picture books through text and images, and through the interaction between them. The studied picture books are Alla går iväg by Eva Lindström, Lenka by Katalin Szegedi, Pricken by Margret Rey and Snäll by Gro Dahle. The result shows that the social exclusion is described as being caused by different factors. From the analysis it is obvious that the social environment plays a major role and also that both children and adults can be the reason for the exclusion. The picture-book analysis includes a study of how social exclusion based on appearance and invisibility is communicated in text and pictures. This can be done by showing the characters depressed and invisible to the people around them, for example, through resigned looks or captured behind a forced smile.

    ”Blattesvenska är ett ungdomsspråk, inte en dialekt”: En studie av högstadieelevers attityder till tre svenska varieteter2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att undersöka attityder hos högstadieelever till varieteterna skånska, norrländska och svenska på mångspråkig grund. Ett annat syfte är att ta reda på om dessa ungdomar anser svenska på mångspråkig grund vara en dialekt, och om svaren varierar utifrån kön och första- och andraspråkstalare. Ett annat perspektiv som jag även kommer att presentera är den didaktiska aspekten på språklig varietet och vilka pedagogiska faktorer som kan påverka elevernas attityd till dialekt.En enkätundersökning utfördes på två könshomogena grupper, där eleverna fick lyssna på inspelningar av de tre olika språkliga varieteterna. Resultaten av informanternas definitioner av dialekt är följande: geografiskt, tids- och platsbundet och språkligt släktskap. Ungdomarnas definition av dialekt stämmer överens med forskarnas, det vill säga tal som är typiskt för ett geografiskt område, även om ungdomarna använder andra ord. Enligt undersökningen varierade ungdomarnas attityd till språkliga varieteter mellan kön och till en viss del mellan första- och andraspråkstalare. Flickorna valde fler positiva uttryck än pojkarna till varje dialekt, förutom till svenska på mångspråkig grund som talades av mannen, det som pojkarna var mest positiva till. Andraspråkstalarna var något mer positiva till svenska på mångspråkig grund än förstaspråkstalarna.

    Affective teaching and learning in a Swedish EFL classroom: A case study investigating teacher-student relationship and motivation2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    According to previous research, affective aspects are, when successfully applied, presumed to increase cognitive learning in the language classroom. The research present on the affective domain was deemed insufficient since few observations in language classrooms had been made. This study gives a view on how affective teaching and learning are applied in a Swedish EFL classroom. Teacher-student relationships and motivation have been observed during three lessons in an English language classroom according to several categories of the two facets that were assembled prior to the observations and finalized afterwards. A case study was used as method for investigating how affective teaching and learning are used in practice. The case study indicated a frequent use of affective teaching in the classroom. All categories of relationship and motivation were detected during the lessons, indicating that the teacher is experienced in terms of using affective teaching and learning in her classroom. The study is important to language learning since it highlights the necessity of applying affective teaching and learning in the classroom. The results of the study indicate that there are several ways to develop positive teacher-student relationships and also demonstrates different approaches to how motivation can be generated by the teacher in a language classroom.

    Developing English language online: A study of ten Swedish adolescents' Internet habits and language proficiency2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    This study aimed at investigating some of the possible effects of the computer on adolescents’ language development. As a base for the study Sundqvist’s (2009) study on extramural English (EE) was used. The work of David Crystal provided a substantial background on the English language, which was complemented by the work of Halliday among others.

             In the study ten national writing tests were examined and analyzed, and a small survey of the ten students’ Internet habits was performed. The mistakes and errors made by the students in the tests were compared to their value of exposure to Internet English (EIE) in order to establish possible links between their Internet habits and their writing mistakes. The study found that the five boys that took part spent more time online and engaging in activities where English was used than the girls of the study. It was also found that the students who spend the most time online made substantially more errors and mistakes regarding the apostrophe, mainly in contractions. It was also found that the students who spent little time online and had a low value of EIE were more likely to make mistakes and errors regarding verbs and agreement.

                          Although the study was too limited for any generalizations to be made, it hinted at some possible links between Internet habits of adolescents and their performance on the national test and their general language proficiency.
