    We will rock you: A diachronic corpus-based analysis of linguistic features in rock lyrics 2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In the present paper, the potential of corpus-linguistic research is put into action. More specifically, a corpus-based demonstration of the general style used in rock lyrics is formed in order to identify the genre-specific features. A corpus consisting of roughly 53 000 words was created for this research. The focus lies on a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the vocabulary as well as of the stylistic markers. The aim of this essay is to investigate the language used in the lyrics of rock music lyrics and the results of the research illustrate in what ways rock lyrics are either more spoken-like or written-like; whether rock lyrics mirror the general word usage in society, and in what ways rock music is comparable to other genres. Using the rock lyrics corpus (ROLC), trends within rock lyrics were retraced diachronically. Results show that rock lyrics, to some extent, follow the general word usage. However, other results also contradict this. Further research in this area is therefore encouraged.  Findings show that rock music shares features with other genres, but also that that rock has some unique features.  Developments and stagnations were detected in regards to word usage. These features are examined in order to find an explanation.

    Participation and Enjoyment in Play with a Robot between Children with Cerebral Palsy who use AAC and their Peers2015Ingår i: Augmentative and Alternative Communication: AAC, ISSN 0743-4618, E-ISSN 1477-3848, Vol. 31, nr 2, s. 108-123Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores children with complex communication needs, their peers and adult support persons in play with the talking and moving robot LekBot. Two triads were filmed playing with LekBot at pre-school. LekBot was developed to facilitate independent and enjoyable play on equal terms for children with significant communication disabilities and their peers. Using Conversation Analysis, participatory symmetry and enjoyment were investigated in relation to spoken and gestural communication, embodied stance, gaze, and affective display. Data originated from three video-recorded sessions that were approximately 2 hours long. Four different interaction situations were identified and explored: Participatory Asymmetry, Adult Facilitation, Greater Participatory Symmetry and Creativity, and Turn-taking and Enjoyable Play with LekBot. Neither participatory symmetry nor enjoyment were easily achieved in the play sessions and may require considerable effort, including adult involvement, but creative, spontaneous and highly enjoyable play, correlating with participatory symmetry to various degrees, was observed in a few instances. The findings are discussed with regard to play, AAC and the future development of robots to facilitate play.

    Tvåspråkiga barn: En litteratur- och intervjustudie om förskolans och hemmets roll i tvåspråkiga barns språkutveckling2009Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (yrkesexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Dagens Sverige är mångkulturellt och flerspråkigt således även förskolan. Detta gör att kunskap om hur man som pedagog samt tvåspråkig förälder på bästa sätt ska stimulera och utveckla tvåspråkiga barns språkutveckling viktiga och nödvändiga vilket också utgör syftet med denna undersökning. Det ska vara möjligt för det tvåspråkiga barnet att utveckla alla sina språk, dvs. både svenska och modersmålet. Därför ska förskolan vara ett komplement till hemmet.

     

     Metoden har varit att intervjua pedagoger som har erfarenhet av att arbeta med tvåspråkiga barn samt att intervjua tvåspråkiga föräldrar.

     

     Pedagoger som arbetar med tvåspråkiga barn har oftast skaffat sig kunskaper på egen hand genom lång arbetserfarenhet. Slutsatsen blev även att man idag prioriterar tvåspråkiga barns modersmål i högre grad än tidigare i förskolan men modersmålets status behövs öka ytterligare så att verkligheten blir som sådant att man på modersmål ser som tvåspråkiga barns rättighet.

    Låt texten tala!: En studie om röst och kausalitet i tre samhällskunskapsböcker för grundskolans senare år2014Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    I studien undersöks i vilken grad läsbarhetsvariablerna röst och kausalitet förekommer i tre läroböcker för samhällskunskap i grundskolans senare år. De tre läromedlen, av vilken en enligt förlaget är bearbetad till lättläst språk, jämförs avseende dessa variabler och resultatet sätts även i relation till Läsbarhetsindex (LIX), ett annat mått på läsbarhet. Hypotesen är att den lättlästa versionen innehåller en högre grad av kausalitet och röst för ökad läsbarhet.

    Resultatet visar att alla böckerna har inslag av både röst och kausalitet men att dessa skulle kunna utvecklas för att öka läsbarheten. Inget av läromedlen når upp till högsta nivå när det gäller kriterierna för röst och det som saknas är ofta närhetsskapande drag som läsartilltal, frågor och förtrolighetsskapande pronomen som "du" och "vi". I alla tre textutdragen förkla-ras orsakssammanhang med kausala konnektorer, men i olika grad. Den lättlästa texten har ett lätt språk men den är inte mer läsbar än de övriga texterna när det handlar om röst och kausa-litet. Hypotesen om det lättlästa läromedlet stämmer alltså inte. Texterna hamnar på samma nivå vid en LIX-beräkning, trots att texterna är mycket olika både avseende röst och kausali-tet. En slutsats är därmed att läsbarhet inte bör studeras utifrån enstaka läsbarhetsvariabler utan en kombination av olika variabler ger ett mer heltäckande resultat.

    Rechercheintensive Werbemittelerstellung und sozialversicherungspflichtige Onlinemarketingagenturen: Eine deutsch-schwedische Übersetzungsanalyse von Substantiv- und Adjektivkomposita2019Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Compounds, i.e. combining two lexical morphemes, are used for various reasons, e.g. naming, reduction of letters and words, drawing attention and producing expressive and humorous effects, etc. Compounding is not a unique concept to the German language, but is regarded as one of its characteristic features. As the stylistic norms differ from language to language, it renders the task of translating compounds challenging. There are various translation strategies for translating compounds, the tendencies of which are explored in this study. The analysis is based on a Swedish translation of Kühn’s (2016) Das Handbuch für digitale Nomaden and focuses on noun and adjective compounds, as they are the most frequent compounds in German. Concerning noun compounds, the study shows a tendency towards translation strategies, which are close to the source text material in form and meaning, whereas translations of adjective compounds tend to use strategies, which are similar in meaning, but not in form, e.g. a paraphrase. On this basis, it is concluded that even though German and Swedish share linguistic similarities, they differ when it comes to stylistic norms, as German is considered more nominal, whereas Swedish has a more verbal mode of expression.

    Learning German Online: about Prerequisites, Attitudes and the Effect of Computermediated Communication on Language Learning2011Ingår i: International Conference "ICT for Language Learning": 4th edition, Firenze: Pixel , 2011Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    For over a decade Högskolan Dalarna/Dalarna University has been offering online-education in a wide range of languages. In our field, German as a second/foreign language, we have developed courses both on primary and advanced levels and we are also involved in education of German teachers.

    Our research interest is the use and the role and influence of Information and Communication Technologies in German/foreign language classrooms in Swedish secondary school. In Sweden there is a growing number of schools which use Information and Communication Technologies in foreign language education, while little research has been done on the matter how they contribute to language learning. Our contribution to the conference is to present our research project, which will start this fall with classes in the Swedish region Dalarna, and we will also show some preliminary results. The project is based on a longitudinal study, which will run over two years, and has two main directions: 1.The examination of teachers` and learners` usage of the computer as a learning/communication tool and their attitudes towards it. We hope to get a better understanding of the conditions under which computers aid language learning in a blended learning setting. 2. The other part of our research is directed at chat as a communication mode and its effects on language development. We want to know: In which mode, written chats compared to oral face-to-face communication, do certain language structures and discourse features first occur. Which influence can be supposed that both modes have on each other? We expect to find out that chat contributes to the development of oral skills because its' conditions for planning in- and output supports the development of routines to process certain structures and discourse features. As our research methods we use questionnaires, interviews, conversation and discourse analysis.

    Towards classification of head movements in audiovisual recordings of read news2017Ingår i: Proceedings of the 4th European and 7th Nordic Symposium on Multimodal Communication (MMSYM 2016): Copenhagen, 29-30 September 2016 / [ed] Patrizia Paggio, Costanza Navarretta, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2017, Vol. 141, s. 4-9, artikel-id 141:002Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we develop a system for detection of word-related head movements in audiovisu-al recordings of read news. Our materials consist of Swedish television news broadcasts and comprise audiovisual recordings of five news readers (two female, three male). The corpus was manually labelled for head movement, applying a simplistic annotation scheme consisting of a binary decision about absence/presence of a movement in relation to a word. We use OpenCV for frontal face detection and based on this we calculate velocity and acceleration features. Then we train a machine learning system to predict absence or presence of head movement and achieve an accuracy of 0.892, which is better than the baseline. The system may thus be helpful for head movement labelling.

    EMA-based head movements, word accent and vowel length2019Ingår i: Book of Abstracts MMSYM 2019, University of Leuven , 2019, s. 11-11Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes on-going work in the field of multimodal prosody carried out by means of simultaneous recordings of speech acoustics, articulation and head movements. People naturally move their heads when they speak, and head movements have been found both to correlate strongly with the pitch and amplitude of the speaker's voices and to convey linguistic information. Here, we report on a study that explores how head movement patterns vary and co-occur with lexical pitch accents (and their acoustic correlates F0 and intensity) and vowel length. The study uses data from Swedish, where there are both two lexical pitch accents and two vowel lengths that differ phonologically.

    We use EMA (Electromagnetic articulography), which allows for high sample rates, accurate synchronisation of kinematic and acoustic recordings, as well as three-dimensional movement data. Kinematic data is obtained by gluing small sensors on the speakers’ articulators (tongue, lips, jaw). Head movement data is obtained by similar sensors on the nose ridge and behind the ears, which allows us to capture the angle of the tilt of the head.

    Articulatory data was collected from 18 South Swedish speakers (12 female) using a Carstens AG501. Each speaker read leading questions + sentences containing a target word from a prompter (presented eight times in random order), an arrangement employed to put a contrastive focus onto the last element in the target sentence. This left the target word in a low-prominence inducing context, hence controlling for possible effects of sentence intonation.

    For this study we used eight target words where pitch accent and vowel length were cross- matched so that there were two cases of each combination of word accent category and vowel length category. All words shared the similar word-initial C /m/, followed by a vowel that was either /a/ or /ɑ:/. The target words were segmented and time-normalized between 0 to 1 and the head tilt angle (sagAng) was normalized for each speaker by z-transforming the angles per speaker. Spatial movements were analysed using Generalized Additive Models, which we used to test if there were effects of segmental position (C versus V in the first syllable), word accent (1 or 2) and vowel length (short or long) on sagAng. Models were fit using the maximum likelihood (ML) estimation method.

    The Chi-Square test on the ML scores indicates that a model with the word accent distinction is significantly better than a model without it (X2(4.00)=632.796, p<2e-16***). Similarly, a model with vowel length distinction is significantly better than a model without it (X2(4.00)=820.997, p<2e-16***). Finally, a model with segmental position is significantly better than a model without it (X2(8.00)= 173.316, p<2e-16***).

    The results indicate that head nod patterns that occur in synchronisation with the stressed syllable of spoken words differ with respect to word accent, vowel length and segmental position. This could possibly point to an effect of F0 and intensity on the head nod movements.

    Investigating visual prosody using articulography2019Ingår i: Proceedings of the Digital Humanities in the Nordic Countries 4th Conference: Copenhagen, Denmark, March 5-8, 2019 / [ed] Costanza Navarretta, Manex Agirrezabal, Bente Maegaard, CEUR-WS.org , 2019, s. 143-148, artikel-id 12Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we describe present work on multimodal prosody by means of simultaneous recordings of articulation and head movements. Earlier work has explored patterning, usage and machine-learning based detection of focal pitch accents, head beats and eyebrow beats through audiovisual recordings. Kinematic data obtained through articulography allows for more compa- rable and accurate measurements, as well as three-dimensional data. Therefore, our current approach involves examining speech and body movements concurrently, using electromagnetic articulography (EMA). We have recorded large amounts of this kind of data previously, but for other purposes. In this paper, we present results from a study on the interplay between head movements and phrasing and find tendencies for upward movements occuring before and downward movements occuring after prosodic boundaries.

    Las actitudes existentes entre los catalanes y los españoles no catalanes: Un estudio etnolingüístico2014Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay involves comparing the Catalan and Spanish (not Catalan) ethnic groups, the two main groups found in Spain, in terms of linguistics. As both groups have their own language, we will be focusing on what attitude each group has in regards to the Catalan and Spanish language. In addition, we will be investigating their attitudes about the people belonging to these two ethnic groups.

    The purpose of this study is to affirm if these groups have a positive or negative attitude regarding each other, specifically in terms of language. As language is a part of the ethnic identity, we will also analyze which components of the ethnic identity are most important to each group. In order to achieve this, we will first and foremost study closely, and present, the concept of ethnic identity and its various components.

    We made use of questionnaires in order to gather information about the Catalan and Spanish (not Catalan) people and their languages, which were answered by 60 Catalans and 30 Spaniards.

    Optimising transparency, reliability and replicability: Annotation principles and inter-coder agreement in the quantification of evaluative expressions2015Ingår i: Corpora, ISSN 1749-5032, E-ISSN 1755-1676, Vol. 10, nr 3, s. 315-349Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Manual corpus annotation facilitates exhaustive and detailed corpus-based analyses of evaluation that would not be possible with purely automatic techniques. However, manual annotation is a complex and subjective process. Most studies adopting this approach have paid insufficient attention to the methodological challenges involved in manually annotating evaluation – especially concerning transparency, reliability and replicability. This article illustrates a procedure for annotating evaluative expressions in text that facilitates more transparent, reliable and replicable analyses. The method is demonstrated through a case study analysis of appraisal (Martin and White, 2005) in a small-size specialised corpus of CEO letters published by the British energy company, BP, and four competitors before and after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010. Drawing on Fuoli and Paradis's (2014) model of trust–repair discourse, we examine how attitude and engagement resources are strategically deployed by BP's CEO in the attempt to repair stakeholders’ trust after the accident.

    Rhetoric of Two Inaugural Speeches: An Analysis of Rhetoric Types and Features in American Inaugural Speeches2020Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper will study the use of rhetoric types and features in two inaugural speeches, the possibility if categorizing each speech as one rhetoric type, which speech uses Aristotle’s three means of persuasion better and the methods applicability in categorizing the speeches under the “plebiscitary period’s” four qualities. The two speeches that were used are Donald J. Trump’s inaugural speech and George W. Bush’s first inaugural speech. Previous research conducted by Elvin T. Lim stood for the basis and connections of the five rhetoric types and 27 rhetoric features. Aristotle’s first book on rhetoric described the three means of persuasion and the definition of rhetoric. The theory of the “plebiscitary period” and its four qualities were theorised by Michael J. Korzi. The two speeches were collected from the Small Corpus of Political Speeches. Two wordlists were gathered from the two speeches by using Antconc. The wordlists were then crosschecked with the Harvard IV-4 psychosociological and the Lasswell value dictionaries for the rhetoric features. The data displayed that both speeches favoured the assertive and democratic rhetoric type. The speeches could not be categorized as one speech, instead they were categorized as assertive and democratic rhetoric type speeches. The data could not be used to tell if one speech used Aristotle’s three means persuasion better. The method used was able to find three qualities of the “plebiscitary period” in three rhetoric features. Thus, making it able to place the speeches as a part of the “plebiscitary period”.

    Linguistic interference in translated academic texts:: A case study of Portuguese interference in abstracts translated into English2009Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats/Examensarbete
    Abstract [en]

    AbstractThis study deals with linguistic interference in abstracts of scientific papers translated fromPortuguese into English collected from the online scientific database SciELO. The aim of thisstudy is to analyze linguistic interference phenomena in 50 abstracts from the field ofhumanities, history, social sciences, technology and natural sciences. The types ofinterference discussed are syntactic/grammatical, lexical/semantic and pragmatic interference.This study is mainly qualitative. Therefore, the qualitative method was used, in order to findout what kinds of interference phenomena occur in the abstracts, analyze the possible reasonsfor their occurrence and present some suggestions to avoid the problems discussed. Besides, aquantitative analysis was carried out to interpret the results (figures and percentages) of thestudy. The analysis is aimed at providing some guidance for future translations. This studyconcluded that translations from a Romance language (in this case Portuguese) into aGermanic language (English) tend to be more objective and/or sometimes lose originalmeanings attributed in the source text. Another important finding was that abstracts from thehumanities, history and social sciences present more cases of interference phenomena than theones belonging to technology and natural sciences. These findings imply that many abstractswithin these areas have high probability to be subject to the phenomena discussed and,consequently, have parts of their original meaning lost or misinterpreted in the target texts.Keywords: abstracts, bilingualism, cross-linguistic influence, linguistic interference, linguistictransfer, non-native speakers of English, Portuguese-English interference, source text, targettext, translation.

    The English Language Syllabus in Sweden and Japan: A comparative study2016Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This independent paper compares the Swedish and the Japanese national syllabi for English. Making use of White’s (1988) Type A and Type B syllabus distinction, a number of dimensions are put forward to permit a comparison between the syllabus documents for the two countries. The methods used are hermeneutics and word counting. By counting content signal word frequencies and observing the context in which the words were found, the relative linguistic and pedagogical focuses of the two syllabi are illuminated. The results of the word counting procedures indicate that both countries are somewhat similar when the results were combined from all the Type A dimensions. When observing the word counting for the Type B on the other hand, Sweden has more than 70 % of a word frequency, while Japan has a bit below 30 %. One consequence of this could be the proficiency in the English language that each country has, and the attitude towards learning the language. The results put forward, suggest the basis for an automatized quantitative comparison between the national syllabi which could be implemented in the form of a computer application.

    The use of the general nouns people and thing by L2 learners of English: A corpus-based study2006Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats
    Abstract [en]

    With the advent of corpora documenting learner English, a new and interesting field of research has become available. Learner corpora provide a new type of data which can inform thinking both in second language acquisition research and in foreign language teaching research. Analyses of learner corpora normally report on features which are typically ‘overused’ and ‘underused’, when contrasted to comparable native speaker corpora, in addition to those which are ‘misused’ by the learners. Ringbom (1998) conducted a study in which he identified one common aspect of non-native speaker corpora: the high frequency of general nouns, such as people and thing.

    The aim of this paper was to test Ringbom’s findings and attempt to identify how English as a second language learners’ usage of these particular nouns in written production differ from that of native speakers by conducting a corpus comparison of comparable learner and native speaker corpora. The results of this study clearly support Ringbom’s findings; additionally, it was found that the learners’ written production does not appear vaguer and ‘non-native like’ merely because they overuse the general nouns people and thing, but it also seems as if the learners use these nouns in a more restricted range of meanings whereas the natives’ usage is more diversified. Moreover, this study has identified some of the issues that teachers of English as a second language should be aware of when helping their students to avoid using the general nouns people and thing in a non-native like manner.

    ”Jag visste inte att förkunskaperna innebar att man måste vara svensk: -tre flerspråkiga ungdomar berättar om sin språk- och identitetsutveckling2007Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats
    Abstract [sv]

    Vårt syfte med den här uppsatsen är att ta reda på hur flerspråkiga ungdomar ser på sin flerspråkighet i förhållande till sin språk- och identitetsutveckling. I våra undersökningar har vi utgått från tre flerspråkiga ungdomars berättelser om sina upplevelser kring sin språk- och identitetsutveckling under sin skoltid. Genom användningen av livsberättelser som metod har vi fördjupat oss i och fått större förståelse för deras livssituation. Deras berättelser har berikat vår syn på flerspråkighetens komplexa mening, vilket innefattar kultur, språk och identitet. Vi har uppnått vårt syfte genom att frågan besvarats utifrån ungdomarnas berättelser. Deras skildringar säger oss att kunskaperna i ens modersmål är av största vikt för individens språk- och identitetsutveckling. Men också det att andras bemötande av ens flerspråkighet ligger till grund för hur individen uppfattar sig själv.

    Informanternas erfarenheter belyser den sammansatta vardag de dagligen möter. För den delen är det inte självklart att dessa tre ungdomars erfarenheter kan vara representativa för alla de flerspråkiga ungdomar som lever i dagens mångkulturella Sverige. Trots detta tycker vi att deras röster säger oss en hel del om de synsätten som råder i dagens samhälle.

    Code-switching inside and outside the EFL classroom: Lower secondary pupils’ experiences and attitudes2019Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (yrkesexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research claims that studies on pupil code-switching are lacking in number. Therefore, this study aimed to provide a picture of how lower secondary students in Sweden perceive code-switching inside and outside the Swedish EFL classroom, how the interlocutor affects the pupils’ code-switching as well as the pupils’ attitudes to the phenomenon. The material consists of semi-structured interviews with seven pupils at a lower secondary school. Qualitative content analysis was used as a method to process the interview data. The results show that code-switching occurs in relation to language proficiency in order to explain, annotate and exemplify second language content in the pupils’ first language and in this way enhance learning. This is done by the teachers when leading the class or by the pupils themselves in group discussions or during exercises. Furthermore, results show that interlocutors could be both enablers and be enabled to code-switch during discussions. In addition, the pupils had varied attitudes to code-switching where it was either seen as a mistake to code-switch, or that the pupils code-switched to add effect to their language. The pupils claimed to have different proficiency of the English language and spoke a varied amount of L1 during the lessons. However, all pupils agreed that English should be the primary language in the Swedish EFL classroom. The study concluded with a discussion on the pedagogical implications of the study where it could be used by teachers as a communicative resource.

    Svenska restaurangmenyer: En jämförande studie av språkbruket2012Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att utforma en framgångsrik och vinstgivande restaurangmeny kräver såväl kunskap som erfarenhet inom restaurangbranschen. Språkbruket utgör en viktig del i skapandet av en meny. Denna studie undersöker hur 60 restauranger använder sig av formord och innehållsord med hjälp av data från ett egenhändligt sammanställt s.k. korpus. Resultaten visar att restauranger använder sig av formord främst för att länka ihop ingredienser och att de mest frekvent förekommande innehållsorden presenterar dyra och lyxiga råvaror. Tydliga skillnader kan återfinnas i hur restauranger använder sig av innehållsord: Å ena sidan kan innehållsorden användas för att skapa en meny som anspelar på klassiska rätter och tillagningsmetoder, å andra sidan kan de användas för att få en meny att framstå som innovativ och nytänkande. Det är viktigt att restaurangelever besitter kunskap om skillnader mellan olika typer av restauranger och hur detta avspeglas i deras respektive menyer, något som denna studie kan bidra till ökad förståelse av.

    The integration of ICT in ELT: A systematic literature review on the use of Information and Communication Technologies in English language teaching2020Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (yrkesexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    When 2020 starts, many people’s lives are dependent on technological devices such as smartphones, tablets, and computers. Hence, many schools have started to integrate the use of technological devices in their teaching. This systematic literature review aims to investigate and analyse previous research findings about teachers’ and students’ opinions on the integration of Information and communication technologies (ICT) in English language teaching (ELT). This study also seeks to examine possible advantages and disadvantages of the integration with ICT in ELT. The method of the study was to examine articles which were found with help from the search-engine ERIC. From 80 found articles, 8 were selected for further investigation. Among the results, it was shown that both teachers and students have positive attitudes towards the use of ICT in ELT. Advantages such as ICT being a positive influential factor on students’ motivation, concentration and language learning were perceived among both teachers and students. On the other hand, factors such as teachers not having enough training and schools not handing teachers enough resources were some distinguishable disadvantages. It was concluded that the use of ICT in ELT should be seen as a profitable instrument for the development of students’ English language skills. However, prioritising teachers’ training in how to teach with the help of technological tools should not be underestimated.

    "It is completely ok to give up a little sometimes": Metaphors and normality in Swedish cancer talk2018Ingår i: Critical Approaches to Discourse Analysis Across Disciplines (CADAAD), ISSN 1752-3079, E-ISSN 1752-3079, Vol. 10, nr 1, s. 1-16Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The clichéd conceptualization of cancer illness as a battle, which the patient can either win or lose, can be problematic. For patients referred to palliative care, it can cause feelings of guilt and failure. This framing of cancer, here referred to as ‘the battle script’, has been questioned in previous research, and there seems to be awareness among health practitioners that battle metaphors should be avoided.

    The aim of this paper is to shed light on this battle script by examining the discursive dynamics of metaphor use in a large corpus of Swedish blogs written by terminally ill patients. The study focuses on two common linguistic metaphors, kämpa [fight/struggle] and ge upp [give up]. These expressions have the potential to actualize the battle script, but do not necessarily do so, due to their ambiguous meanings. By analyzing the contextualized meaning of these two metaphors, we illustrate the normality of the battle script as well as the problem to handle the perceived normativity of the script. We also discuss discursive strategies used by the bloggers to handle the negative implications of the battle script.

    Coping by metaphors: The versatile function of metaphors in blogs about living with advanced cancer2019Ingår i: Medical Humanities, ISSN 1468-215X, E-ISSN 1473-4265Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Living with a life-limiting cancer illness can entail a turmoil of feelings such as constant fear of loss, suffering and dying. Because patients live longer with life-limiting illness, there is a need for enhanced understanding of how people make sense of and cope with the complicated aspects that this life situation brings on. In this article, we explore how bloggers with advanced cancer use metaphors as ways of making sense of their experiences. Our study is theoretically grounded in Conceptual Metaphor Theory, where metaphors are seen as a powerful phenomenon that both reflects and affects our thinking. The data consist of a corpus of blogs written in Swedish by individuals with advanced cancer, and the findings from our linguistic metaphor analysis are consistently interpreted against the backdrop of literature on coping. Our study thus highlights the intersection of linguistic metaphor analysis and psychological theories of coping by illustrating the many and complex functions metaphors can have as part of sense-making processes. Our hermeneutic approach enables us to show some differences among the three most pervasive metaphor domains in our material, battle, journey and imprisonment: the journey and imprisonment domains are more flexible than the battle domain in terms of the different kinds of coping strategies that are actualised by the bloggers’ use of metaphors. One particular finding from our analysis is the way in which the bloggers make use of metaphors to compartmentalise experiences and emotions. Our contention is that careful attention to the metaphors used by patients can improve communication in healthcare and enhance understanding of the complex role language use plays in coping processes more generally. By highlighting the relation between metaphor use and coping, our analysis also provides a way to discuss coping strategies based on the patient’s own use of language.

    Variation of English passives used by Swedes: A corpus-based study of the usage of be-passives and get-passives2014Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates the grammatical constructions of be-and get-passives and their usage by Swedes writing in English. The investigation is based on findings from four different corpora, two of which were compiled for the purpose of this study. The first one, SWENC (the Swedish English Newspaper Corpus), contains texts from online newspapers and a corporate newsletter written by Swedes in English. The second, BESC (Blogs in English by Swedes Corpus), contains material collected from blogs written in English by Swedes. The results from these corpora are compared with results from the press sub-corpora of the native English Frown (American English) and F-LOB corpora (British English). The results show that Swedes writing in English use passive constructions to a similar extent as native English speakers do within the news genre. Furthermore, Swedes writing in English use significantly more be-passive constructions within the news genre than the more informal blog genre. Lastly, the study shows that Swedes writing in English use get-passives, and that they are considerably more common in the informal language used in blogs than the more formal language used in online newspapers.

    Gymnasielärares attityder till nyanlända elevers språkliga resurser2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie var att se vilka attityder lärare i programgemensamma ämnen på gymnasiet intog till nyanlända elevers språkliga resurser och hur dessa attityder, enligt informanterna, yttrar sig i undervisningen. Dessa attityder delades upp i en treenighet av komponenter bestående av kognitiv, affektiv och konativ komponent. Studien utfördes på en större gymnasieskola i södra Sverige där 20 lärare i programgemensamma ämnen, både teoretiska och praktiska, deltog i en enkät, varpå sex lärare valdes ut för uppföljande intervjuer utifrån hur tydligt de tagit ställning i olika frågor i enkäten. Resultaten visar att lärarna tenderar att uppvisa en negativ attityd till nyanlända elevers språkliga resurser då det rör svenska språket som upplevs ligga på en otillräcklig nivå för undervisningen. Även för de nyanlända elevernas språkliga resurser i form av andra språk så som modersmålet uppvisade lärarna en negativ attityd då detta utnyttjades i undervisningssituationen i liten grad.

    Metadiscourse in advertising: Persuasion in online advertisements of makeup brands.2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    E-commerce has exploded and with that also advertisements online. To get customers to stay as customers with your company, advertisements become more and more persuasive. To measure this persuasion metadiscourse has been used as a method for this investigation. The aim of this paper is to find out the ways companies use language and discourse to entice customers and keep them buying products. The material chosen for this investigation was advertisements extracted from web pages of make-up brands. Hyland´s categories of metadiscourse were used to extract the relevant features from the advertisements. The results were that all advertisements that had metalinguistic features were also persuasive. Persuasive language occurs as boosters, engagement markers and self-mentions. Also, the metalinguistic features that occur in this investigation are the three categories mentioned above. Further investigation into this topic would be to only view editorial parts of advertisements which most likely will broaden the results within all categories from Hyland´s view of metadiscourse.

    Assessing and grading pupils with dyslexia in English language teaching: A case study of English Language Teachers' insights on the matter2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay focuses on what impact developmental dyslexia has on assessment and grading in the second language teaching of English in the Swedish educational system. The data presented in this essay are based on six semi-structured interviews with English language teachers of lower and upper secondary schools from the south-eastern parts of Sweden. The interviews were conducted in Swedish, and the collected data have been translated into English. The inquiries of the interviews focused on the teachers' awareness of dyslexia and its impact on learning and teaching, as well as how they worked with and their considerations made when assessing and grading dyslexic pupils. The interviews specifically enquired what particular challenges arose in the assessment and grading process, what provided aid, and what could be done to provide further relief during this process. The results show that the assessment and grading of dyslexic pupils is similar to the general practice. The teachers do, however, accommodate the dyslexic pupils' needs in the teaching and carefully consider their difficulties when assessing and grading. The teachers use, for example, spelling programs and such technical aids to help them, to some extent, disregard dyslexic difficulties while assessing. However, results show how the teachers are not able to transfer their awareness of dyslexia and its implications into the assessment and grading situation, suggesting that the teachers' own ability to assess dyslexic pupils is somewhat inadequate.

    Linguistic correlates to communicative proficiency levels of the CEFR: The case of syntactic complexity in written L2 English, L3 French and L4 Italian2014Ingår i: EUROSLA Yearbook: Volume 14 (2014) / [ed] Leah Roberts, Ineke Vedder, Jan H. Hulstijn, Amsterdam: John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2014, s. 1-30Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is a contribution to the empirical underpinning of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), and it aims to identify linguistic correlates to the proficiency levels defined by the CEFR. The study was conducted in a Swedish school setting, focusing on English, French and Italian, and examined the relationship between CEFR levels (A1–C2) assigned by experienced raters to learners’ written texts and three measures of syntactic complexity (based on length of t-unit, subclause ratio, and mean length of clause (cf. Norris & Ortega, 2009)). Data were elicited through two written tasks (a short letter and a narrative) completed by pupils of L2 English (N = 54) in years four, nine and the final year of upper-secondary school, L3 French (N = 38) in year nine and the final year of upper-secondary school, and L4 Italian (N = 28) in the final year of upper-secondary school and first year of university. The results showed that, globally, there were weak to medium-strong correlations between assigned CEFR levels and the three measures of syntactic complexity in English, French and Italian. Furthermore, it was found that syntactic complexity was homogeneous across the three languages at CEFR level A, whereas syntactic complexity was different across languages at CEFR level B, especially in the data for English and French. Consequences for the empirical validity of the CEFR framework and the nature of the three measures of complexity are discussed.

    Castellanización en Suecia: Tendencias en el uso de verbos suecos castellanizados en el habla de hispanohablantes en Suecia.2011Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The object of this study is to investigate which tendencies there are in terms of the frequency of hispanication of Swedish verbs used by Spanish-speakers who live in Sweden. The emphasis is put on explaining the phenomena of hispanication, and the frequency in which it may occur.

    The study is based on an empirical corpus, and is carried out with a questionnaire. Verbs found in earlier studies, and with help from a Spanish-speaking professor at the Linneaus University of Växjö, have been used in the questionnaire where the Hispanics have been asked to state the frequency of their use of these verbs. The individuals taking part in the study have also been asked to provide personal information in order to obtain a better understanding of the frequency of the hispanication in comparison to their social-linguistic background and how they themselves evaluate their linguistic competence in both Swedish and Spanish. Comparisons are made between different groups, such as gender, age, linguistic competence and linguistic self-evaluation.

    To further understand the terms used in the study, which often appears in a linguistic context, the author has made a short explanation of the terms that are most frequently used. Many of the terms used cause great controversy and lots of problems among the ones who study linguistics, and therefore it was important in this study to clarify the meaning of these terms, such as loan word, code-switching and hispanication.

    The author comes to the conclusion that the tendency of the use of the verbs appearing in this short study generally shows no frequent use, although some verbs such as grilar, parkear and pasar show tendencies of a major use among the informants.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents dilemmas that arose in the process of translation to Swedish of parts of a French book on children’s emotional development and parenting.  Three specific domains are discussed: 1) The choice of pronoun for child. A new genderneutral personal pronoun that has gained ground in Swedish in recent years presents a practical solution, but implies some editing in order not to be too salient and repetitive. 2) The relationship between author and readers created by an inclusive and personal language. 3) The need in the target text to add « hedges », a form of metadiscourse markers defined by Hyland (1998 :1) as « any linguistics means used to indicate either a) a lack of complete commitment to the truth value of the accompanying proposition, or b) a desire not to express that commitment categorically ».    The problems and the choices made have been put into the context of the functionalist approach to translation presented by Ingo (2007). The feelings of the target text readers have been in focus in all three instances of discussion and the need for translators to be aware of metadiscourse and rhetorical conventions have been explored.

    Functions and Strategies: The translation of narrative metaphors in a popular scientific text2015Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to describe how functions of metaphors relate to translation strategiesin a translation of a popular scientific article from English to Swedish. The investigation isbased on a close reading of the source and target texts which identifies metaphors of fourdifferent functions: pedagogical, theory-constitutive, decorative and narrative. The methodfor metaphor identification is adapted from Merakchi and Rogers (2013) while the translationstrategies discussed have been borrowed from Toury (2012). These strategies reflect realtranslator behaviour and take into account source and target texts equally.

    The investigation starts with a quantitative summary of translation strategies which showsthat in the vast majority of cases metaphors exist simultaneously in the source and targettexts, whether it is as ―the same‖ or a ―different‖ metaphor. The qualitative analysis bringsforward that metaphors in general have a narrative function, sometimes in addition to adifferent function. It goes on to show that narrative themes are important to create links i)within the text, ii) to the scientific community and iii) within a wider cultural context, andthat this works for both source and target text independently.

    Teaching and assessing English pronunciation in the communicative classroom: A qualitative study about teaching and assessing English pronunciation as part of oral skills in the ninth grade in Sweden2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (yrkesexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates how a group of English teachers in Sweden teach and assess pronunciation to ninth graders as a part of oral skills. The method applied in the study is qualitative semi-structured interviews with six teachers from different cities and schools in Sweden. The results show that teaching English pronunciation is included in different speaking and listening contexts and is not taught separately. However, the teachers do formative pronunciation assessments in almost every lesson, but summative assessment is rarely given in each semester. This case study views how the participants teach English pronunciation to ninth graders and concludes that communicative language teaching methods have an overwhelming role in the teaching of pronunciation, as pronunciation is included in other language skills and happens mostly without direct focus, which is typical in a communicative approach.

    Adjectives and clausal complementation2012Ingår i: Working papers in Scandinavian syntax, ISSN 1100-097X, nr 89, s. 37-67Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I show that Swedish has a type of relative clause that doesn’t modifynominal expressions, contrary tomost descriptions/definitions of relative clauses.Instead this type of relative clause modifies evaluative predicates. The relativeclause has similarities to both control clauses and attributive relative clauses.I point out some issues that theoretical accounts of these relative clauses musttake into consideration, and also how current generative analyses fail to meetthese considerations. A promising route in such a generative framework seemsto be one where the head of the relative clause and the relative clause itself areindependently merged in the structure; the head as subject in the matrix clauseand the relative clause as an adjunct/complement to the predicate it modifies.What makes this relative clause different from NP modifying relative clauses isthe relation between the gap and the head.

    Finiteness in Swedish2012Ingår i: Working Papers in Scandinavian Syntax, ISSN 1100-097X, nr 90, s. 29s. 81-110Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates tenseless finite clauses in Swedish. In certain contexts thefinite perfect auxiliary, ha ‘have’, is optional. These contexts are finite non-V2clauses and V2 clauses in which the V2 position is filled by a modal adverb, forexample kanske ‘maybe’. The analysis of these tenseless clauses is presented inthe constraint based lexicalist theory, lexical functional grammar. The analysisbuilds on, and develops, the one presented by Sells (2007).
