    Ligger "nästan inföddlikhet" i tvåspråkighetens natur? Om ålders- vs tvåspråkighetseffekter vid andraspråksinlärning2021In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, Vol. 31, no 1, p. 108-142Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den relativt nyvunna insikten att den slutliga behärskningsnivån i ett andraspråk (L2) hos tidiga inlärare inte alltid (eller ens särskilt ofta) är helt och hållet jämförbar med den hos infödda talare har lett till ett ifrågasättande av inlärningsålder som orsaken till denna "nästan" (snarare än helt) inföddlika L2-behärskning. En fullt möjlig och i dagsläget mycket omhuldad tolkning är att sådana skillnader i stället uppkommer naturligt som en artefakt av jämförelsen mellan enspråkiga och tvåspråkiga individer, och att blotta närvaron av två aktiva språksystem ger oundvikliga avtryck på den språkliga representationen och processningen – på båda språken och oavsett inlärningsålder. Till samma tankegods hör antagandet att den snabba och totala förlusten av förstaspråket (L1) hos internationellt adopterade barn möjliggör en så kallad "neural nollställning", så att enspråkig, inföddliknande inlärning av det nya språket blir det givna resultatet, medan ett bevarat, aktivt modersmål (hos t.ex. invandrarbarn) däremot utgör ett "filter" genom vilket andraspråket lärs in och färgas. Ett avgörande problem med dessa teorier är dock att de i princip helt saknar stöd i empiriska studier. Mot bakgrund av dessa nya (eller nygamla?) idétrender inom andraspråksforskningen presenterar vi därför i denna artikel en nyligen avslutad studie som på ett direkt sätt angriper frågan om ålderseffekter vs tvåspråkighetseffekter.

    Text- och resursorientering inom multimodalitetsforskningen: En teoretisk diskussion om förklaringsvärden2012In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, Vol. 22:1, no 1, p. 135-161Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the explanatory value of two theoretical orientations within multimodal research on texts and communication, and it explores the potential benefits of combining them. Firstly, the multimodal text (involving other semiotic modes than language) can be taken as a point of departure for the analysis and understanding of meaning making. This has been a common approach within text and discourse analysis. Secondly, there is an orientation toward the multimodal resources being employed when people make meaning, placing the interests of sign-/text-makers and processes of text creation just as much in focus as the textual products that emerge from them.

    The discussions in the article primarily make reference to the broader framework of social semiotic multimodality research, taking the theoretical assumptions made in Kress & van Leeuwen’s influential book Reading images: The grammar of visual design (2006) as one important point of departure. In particular, research categorised under the tentative labels of multimodal discourse analysis, social semiotic multimodal analysis and multimodal interactional analysis is reviewed and related to the status the authors ascribe to texts and semiotic resources. The text analytical implications of text and resource orientations and combinations of the two are finally illustrated by a sample analysis of multimodal texts created by children in educational contexts.

    Text, tid och handling i ett reglerat rum: En diskursanalys av mediering i hybrid arbetslivskommunikation2022In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, Vol. 32, p. 5-37Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Calls have been raised for more research on the use of texts and other types of in real-life communicationin real-life situations, which are often complex and hybrid. This study is based on data from a meeting at a hospital ward where a Key Account Manager from a pharmaceutical business informs staff about a medical product during their lunch hour. Mediated discourse analysis is applied to map the mediating trajectories of the texts used in the meeting and to reveal the role of people in this mediation. The analysis shows that the situation can be regarded as a mediation of a discourse concerning the marketing of medical products and of actual legaltexts, stating that pharmaceutical businesses cannot offer doctors values such as expensive dinners. Besides a PowerPoint document, other material resources and practices such as a modest meal contribute to the situation. In the texts, a medical-scientific discourse, a commercial discourse and an administrative discourse are mixed. Doctors’ actions of prescribing the productare anticipated by the Key Account Manager’s actions of 1) constructing an ‘historical body’ of trust, 2) emphasizing certain textual messages at the same time and offering these texts in adurable material form. This manner of simultaneous and/or durable material forms is introduced as discursive layering. The study presents an empirical case of how ‘big discourses’ are mediated into local actions which, in turn, are targeted to affect future actions.

    Adjektivböjningens -a och -e: Ett seglivat variationstillstånd2016In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, Vol. 26, p. 69-100Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    The adjectival agreement of noun phrases referring to human individuals in Swedish is renowned for its complex pattern of variation between -a and -e. This article reports three studies on the subject. The first one maps the use of the marked form -e, and finds it to be mainly used for males and generic individuals, but occasionally also for other animates, such as animals, women, and nonpersonal agents. The variation between -a and -e for males has often been thought of as regionally governed, but the second study, based on blog texts, suggests that region plays a subordinate role (or possibly no role at all) in writing. Many factors have been said to influence the variation, and the third study reported in the article tests their impact with statistical methods on modern data. The results indicate that the variation in noun phrases referring to specific male individuals is more influenced by pragmatic and semantic factors, as compared to the variation in noun phrases referring to generic individuals, which is more affected by formal and lexical factors. This difference is interpreted as a consequence of how the referents are conceptualized. The variation between -e and -a is often assumed to reveal an ongoing change. However, when the results of these studies are compared to a thorough description of the system from 1892, the emerging picture is one of enduring variation, influenced by the very same factors today as over a century ago.

    Abstract [en]

    Does language influence the way we think and reason about reality? If so, what happens if youspeak more than one language? These questions have been at the centre stage of the field ofpsycholinguistics since the early 2000’s. The aim of this article is to review the state-of-the-artin research on language and thought, focusing particularly on multilingualism. First, a historicaloverview of the field is provided, which serves as the backdrop against which current findingson multilingualism and cognitive processing are discussed. Subsequently, the article analyseshow biographical variables, such as language proficiency, age of acquisition, and frequency oflanguage use, may modulate the way in which language influences multilingual thought. Thearticle closes by discussing specific issues in research on language and thought that merit further study.

    Abstract [sv]

    This is a study, in the polyphonic sense of Bakhtin, of the occurrence of different voices in a seemingly monologic text. The question is posed whether and to what extent polyphony – of a conflicting kind – occurs in prescriptive texts such as curricula for Swedish in Swedish compulsory schools from 1962 through 2000, when the most recent one was approved. Hidden dialogue is studied in four types of constructions: (1) contrastive relations indicated by the conjunction men ‘but’, subjunctions such as även om ‘even if’ or adverbs such as dock ‘though’, (2) negated sentences, (3) sentences with strong deontic modals, i.e. måste ‘must’ and får inte ‘must not’, (4) claims for which reasons are given with overt causal markers such as därför att ‘because’. The conflicting viewpoints are identified within an ideological system articulated by Ball et al. (1990). The main finding in the study is that in the beginning of the period, dialogues are both frequent and articulate two distinct positions, although these viewpoints are not far from each other ideologically. By the end of the period, such dialogues are less frequent and it is hard to pinpoint the two positions and the difference between them.

    Frasformade instruktioner med uppföljningar under personlig träning2019In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, Vol. 29, p. 9-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Personal training is a new form of institutional interaction that has not been considerably studied as regards language. Still, alongside embodied interaction, language is central in this activity. In this paper, phrasal utterances are studied as a resource for instructing in personal training. The data consist of 7 h 23 min of video recordings of training sessions with Swedish-speaking participants from Finland and Sweden, which are supplemented with field notes. The theoretical–methodological framework includes interactional linguistics, ethnography of communication, and variational pragmatics. Results show that participants use all semiotic information at hand when they produce and understand phrasal instructions during personal training. This process involves the overall activity, the participants’ institutional roles as trainer and client, their body positions and movements, and trajectories of earlier interaction and embodied elements of the instructions themselves. Phrasal instructions are short; thus, they are focused and easily integrated into the ongoing physical activity. Certain differences are observed between the data from Finland and from Sweden, e.g., Finnish data have more phrasal instructions, whereas the Swedish data have more third-turn follow-ups, which may indicate cultural differences in this domain. The article concludes that phrasal utterances are not only useful as instructions in personal training but also well-suited for the activity type.

    Handledning i hybrida kontexter2010In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, Vol. 20, p. 189-219Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is grounded in a dialogical and sociocultural tradition within research on talk and communication in institutional settings. It is concerned with discourses of merged or mixed kinds in contexts where working life encounters educational contexts. The data are drawn from spoken activities in vocational training for student nurses enrolled in a nursing programme within higher education in Sweden. The students are being trained in the practice of patient assessment on admission to hospital. Based on video recordings from conversations between patients, student nurses and their nurse preceptor on the ward, the article analyzes the complex hybridity in instructional sequences, where the participants focus on several goals simultaneously. The detailed analysis of five excerpts selected from these sequences shows how an experienced nurse preceptor masters multiple roles and tasks embedded within a pedagogical practice encompassing both care work through assessment talk and instructing student nurses. Using a combination of analytical tools from Goffmanian frame analysis and Conversation Analysis rooted in ethnomethodology, the analysis pays attention to the communicative and pedagogical resources drawn on by the participants in their interaction when coping with the differing demands imposed by the situation. The results of the analysis underline the importance of including the use of different modalities as constitutive parts that function together in minimizing the objectivation of the patient in frame shifts. Gaze direction in particular is proposed as a method for the preceptor in this work to enable her to orient simultaneously to both the student and the patient.

    Orientering mot språkliga identiteter i samtal om text under arbete i flerspråkiga studentgrupper2008In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, Vol. 18, p. 156-187Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In contrast to most research paradigms in second language acquisition which view interaction as a source of data for the study of language learning, this article employs an ethnomethodological perspective in the analysis of naturally-occurring second language talk. The article seeks to explore how local identities (here defined as being either a first- or a second-language speaker) are mobilized by the participants, and how shifts in their salience can be traced in the sequential organisation of the talk. The data consist of  onversations between first-language (FL) and second-language (SL) speakers and between SL-speakers with varying linguistic backgrounds in collaborative writing groups in a multilingual setting at a Swedish university. The analysis focuses on repair sequences (self-initiated other-repairs) in which a linguistic unit is made explicit. The article discusses the cases in which the SL-speaker displays knowledge about the register in an academic laboratory report and instances when she orients to her restricted linguistic knowledge. It is argued that the linguistic status of the speakers is an interactionally-mobile category. In the few cases when the speaker identities are brought into focus in conversations between FL- and SL-speakers, this appears as a result of the help-seeking activities of the SL-speaker. In conversations between SL-speakers, however, the speakers are by contrast more eager to activate their linguistic identity.

    Abstract [en]

    The majority of text researchers today view text as deeply embedded in context. Still, the question of how context should be treated in analysis, in order to achieve a “thick” theoretical understanding, remains substantially unanswered. In this article, a focus on the meso-level of context, the activity, is suggested as a way of contextualizing texts. This level has shown to be fruitful for explaining patterns and variation in conversation. The meso-level of activity can also be expected to be relevant for the participants of textual communication, which is a key factor when striving for what is sometimes called ecological validity. In the article, previous research and specific examples are discussed in two thematic sections, focusing on texts in text-mediated activities (e.g. academic research and education) and texts in practical activities (e.g. health care work), respectively. Based on these overviews, a unified analytical perspective and a possible stance for researchers interested in grounding their text analysis in a less ‘text-biased’ understanding of context are proposed. This perspective combines activity theory with a semiotic focus on text artefacts inspired by New Literacy Studies. Once the role of a text in the activity is established, and when goals and possible conflicts are identified, context-based concepts such as genre and discourse are suggested for linking activity to linguistic text structure

    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to establish the ways in which different aspects of the Swedish national minority language policy have facilitated or hindered the fulfilling of the aims to revitalize these languages. Finnish is used as a test case, and we apply a two-step approach to analyzing the development of its use during the 2000s: we adapt the COD model (Capacity, Opportunity, Desire), proposed by Grin in the early 1990s, and apply it at three societal levels: macro, meso and micro. The macro level covers national policies, laws and other regulations. The meso level is represented by the adoption and implementation of these locally. The micro level consists of linguistic biographies by informants of a bilingual project started in 1991, and revisited in 2013. Education in or of Finnish as an example of language policy is central to the study, although other fields are considered.

    Our analysis shows that policies established at the national level recur in different forms at the meso and micro levels. Although there is an overlap between these societal levels, there is a discrepancy between legislation and practice. The dimension of capacity in Finnish seems to account for much of the development in language use, compared to opportunity and desire. The COD model, in combination with its multilevel adaptation, is a functional, analytic option for the study of language policy decisions and their effect on language use patterns. It therefore could also be adapted to the other national minority languages of Sweden.

    Inte helt passiv: Konstruktion med få + particip i tal och skrift2012In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, Vol. 22, no 2, p. 27-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates constructions with få  ‘get’ + participle in corpora of written and spoken Swedish, as well as in the regional dialects. Three different readings, with partly different structural properties, are distinguished: one causative, one benefactive/malefactive and one agentive reading (cf. e.g. Egerland 1996, Taraldsen 2010). The causative and benefactive/malefactive constructions allow both passive and active readings, in the sense that the subject of can, but need not, be interpreted as the Agent of the participial verb. The two differ partly with respect to which participial verbs are possible, but are both restricted to passive participles of transitive verbs. The agentive construction always carries an active reading, and allows participles of (agentive) intransitive and reflexive verbs. Word order, agreement and particle placement typically distinguish the agentive construction from the other two, but some variation within the constructions can be noted in the corpora. In present-day Swedish, the agentive construction is not accepted by all speakers, and it is generally restricted to spoken language.

    Abstract [en]

    Swedish is the first language that has a gender-neutral third-person singular pronoun, hen, that has spread from transgender and queer communities to the broader society and now exists in parallel with the two traditional gendered pronouns representing ‘she’ and ‘he’. Many strong emotions have arisen during this process, both for and against hen. This study aims at analyzing what background factors may explain the attitudes towards hen. In total, 240 individuals participated in our online questionnaire where they indicated their attitude towards hen, as well as responded to questions assessing attitudes towards sexist language (i.e. gender discriminating language), modern sexism (i.e. the belief that gender-discrimination is no longer an issue), political views (from left to right), interest in gender issues and their identification with their own gender identity. The results show no gender difference in attitudes towards hen, but participants strongly identifying themselves with their gender identity had a tendency to be more negative towards the word. Political view was not a significant predictor. However, participants with sexist attitudes had a tendency to dislike hen, whereas those who were interested in gender issues and were negative towards sexist language had a tendency to like the word. Finally, younger age implied a stronger tendency to like hen.

    Att manipulera matrisen: En jämförelse mellan den svenska, engelska och franska översättningen av den spanska romanen La caverna de las ideas av Carlos Somoza2008In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, Vol. 18, p. 187-208Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    The paper examines the “crime fiction boom” and the cultural spaces from which translated crime fiction originates within the Swedish cultural system. This introduction contextualizes the Swedish translation through comparison with the English and French translations of the Spanish crime novel La caverna de las ideas. The study draws on the polysystem theory approach (Even-Zohar 1990, Toury 1995, 1998) and the cultural sociology of Pierre Bourdieu (Bourdieu 1986, 1992; Gouanvic 1997, 1999) in putting forward the hypotheses that the metatextual elements in the novel will be translated differently, depending on the cultural system within which the translators per- form their task. It is shown that the English translator manipulates the matricial norms of the source text to a greater extent than do the Swedish and French translators. In addition, the paper examines some of the international consecration processes within the global literary space (Casanova 1999), which made it possible for the Somoza crime novel to reach the Swedish literary market by means of translation.

    Det skandinaviska översättningsfältet – finns det?2015In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, no 25, p. 69-87Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The proposed paper builds on the concept of global translation field (Casanova 2002; 2004, Heil- bron 1999; 2008, Sapiro 2002 & 2008) and explores the existence of a Scandinavian translation (sub)field – a relatively autonomous field in the periphery of the global translation field – which may provide an explanation for the peculiar fact that, in spite of their limited amount of speakers and peripheral positions, the Danish and Swedish languages are ranked among the 10 most signi- ficant source languages in the world today. The general translation rate, the non-translation rate, the top-5 source languages within the regional periphery and the position of the Scandinavian lang- uages as source languages in the global translation field are scrutinized. These variables reveal the constant interaction and power struggles between the Scandinavian languages and literatures thus forming a modern relatively autonomous Scandinavian translation field. Some rather strong evi- dence pointing to the central position of the Swedish language and literature in this local translation field in the global periphery are discussed in relation to the double consecration hypothesis (Lind- qvist 2012) in the closing section of the paper.

    Tre nyanser av adekvans: Om grader av källbundenhet i spänningsfältet mellan det vernakulära och det kosmopolitiska i tre svenska översättningar.2023In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, Vol. 33, p. 196-230Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is well known that the Swedish literary culture is open and that the most common overall translation strategy for high prestige fiction is adequate, in the Toury sense (2012 p. 70). But are there different degrees of adequacy? And do translators favor vernacular or cosmopolitan stances in their overall adequate translations? Are there any signs of commercial vernacularism on the cover of the studied Caribbean novels translated from English, French and English/Spanish? 

    By employing the transformations reduction, substitution and retention, the results of the study show that retention is by far the most used transformation by the Swedish publishers and translators, concerning both the paratexts and translated texts. Commercial vernacularism is detectable on the covers. However, the strength of retention varies within the overall adequate translations; from an adequate translation conforming to Swedish expectancy norms for trans- lated high prestige fiction, which is employed by the translator of the novel Lucy by Jamaica Kincaid, over a foreignizing translation strategy reminding the reader of the presence of the culturally Other, used by the translator of Maryse Condé’s novel Traversée de la mangrove, to the abusive fidelity translation challenging the tolerant Swedish reader’s expectancy norms and translation ethics reading the translation of The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz. The study shows that there are three nuances of adequacy in the studied material.

    En jämställd kroppsdel?: Om lanseringen av ett neutralt ord för flickors könsorgan2006In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, no 16, p. 149-177Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det svenska språket har för närvarande inget etablerat ord för att benämna flickors kön på ett neutralt sätt. Problemet har uppmärksammats i artiklar och genom andra initiativ under de senaste åren, och man har föreslagit en mängd olika ord.

    Artikeln syftar till att undersöka dessa språkvårdande initiativ och försöker också kartlägga språkbruket idag. Artikeln undersöker också språkliga mönster i de ord som används.

    För att kartlägga och analysera den debatt som förts i media har olika typer av texter undersökts, framförallt tidningsartiklar. Argumenten i debatten vilar ofta på tydliga kopplingar mellan språk och verklighetsuppfattning – flickor behöver ett ord för att få en sund uppfattning om sitt kön och sin sexualitet. Två strategier för ordvalet kan skönjas: antingen förordas användandet av en redan befintlig benämning (exempelvis "vulva"), eller så förordas etablerandet av en nybildad benämning (exempelvis "snippa").

    För att undersöka språkbruket har en enkätundersökning riktad till studenter och förskolepersonal genomförts. Enkätundersökningen stöder delvis uppfattningen om en lexikal lucka i svenskan för enskilda individer, då en mindre andel av informanterna uppger att de inte har något ord för att benämna flickors könsorgan. Men å andra sidan uppgav de övriga informanterna en mängd olika ord, vilket visade att svenskan som helhet har många ord för flickors kön. Orden "slida" och "snippa" hade en särskilt stark ställning i enkäten.

    Många av orden för flickors kön som enkäten gav har formmässiga likheter – bland annat börjar de i hög grad på bokstäverna "k", "m" och "s" och slutar på "a". Många är metaforer hämtade från växt- och djurriket. Vissa av mönstren kunde kopplas till ideologiska föreställningar om kön. Ordet "snippa" har särskilt många symboliska och språkliga egenskaper som kan förklara ordets popularitet.

    Abstract [en]

    Translations have often been treated as texts of less interest and importance within text research, more often considered a problem rather than a resource. This article discusses the potential of both the translation process and the translated texts for different kinds of text research. The role of translations and translation theory within text historical research is first discussed, with focus on the

    Swedish Sakprosa project. Secondly, conceptions of translation among text users are treated and connections are drawn to text ethnographic and genre oriented research. Thirdly, the focus is placed on to the text producer and the writing process, and the article turns to discussing how knowledge of the translation process might be helpful when investigating other kinds of writing processes. Translation is then discussed within a systemic-functional theoretical perspective and the article points out how a discussion of translation might be valuable for the theoretical description and understanding of different kinds of text processing. The article draws the conclusion that text research should not consider translation and translations a problem but rather as potential resources for deepening our knowledge of texts and writing in general.

    Ordförklaringar som betydelserepresentationer eller yttranden2006In: Språk och stil, ISSN 1101-1165, E-ISSN 2002-4010, Vol. NF 16, p. 112 - 148Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Redan i den allra tidigaste svenska enspråkiga lexikografin från mitten av 1800-talet kan ett tydligt förklaringsideal urskiljas som sedan dess och fram till nyligen aldrig har ifrågasatts på allvar. Enligt detta kanoniska lexikografiska förklaringsideal, som förfinades och systematiserades i det sena 1900-talets stora svenska förklaringsordböcker, bör en ordförklaring vara:

    1. en betydelserepresentation som är utbytbar mot det förklarade ordet i alla kontexter.

    2. en endocentrisk fras som fungerar som en komponentanalys och är utformad som en klassisk (aristotelisk) definition, vilket gör den till en del av en beskrivningsekonomisk, konsekvent och sluten struktur.

    3. ett klargörande av ett begrepp som är en stabil mental representation, hyst av språkkollektivets medlemmar.

    Idealet för med sig ofrånkomliga inkonsekvenser, och det vilar på en objektivistisk språksyn som i artikeln ifrågasätts utifrån forskningsresultat och teoretiska resonemang inom lingvistik, psykologi och filosofi. Artikeln argumenterar därför för att det kanoniska förklaringsidealet och dess teoretiska grundval bör överges, och en skiss till en alternativ grundval för en ordförklaringsteori (och i förlängningen även en metodologi) presenteras. Denna alternativa, dialektisk-kognitivistiska språksyn, för med sig omfattande konsekvenser för vad en ordförklaring är och bör vara. Den mest fundamentala är att en ordförklaring i grunden är ett yttrande – inte en betydelserepresentation, och bland de viktigaste och mest kontroversiella är det faktum att ordförklaringar med nödvändighet är normerande.

    Abstract [en]

    This article presents an edited conversation between Kenneth Hyltenstam, Christopher Stroud, Linus Salö and David Karlander. Its main topic is the rise and consolidation of bilingualism research/multilingualism research as a demarcated subject area in Swedish academe. The article delves into this history via the professional, scholarly trajectories of Hyltenstam and Stroud. By mapping and discussing their involvement in the field of bilingualism/multilingualism, the article offers analytical perspectives on the formation of the field, and on the general atmosphere surrounding this process. The account focuses on past and current research themes, institutional settings and modes of knowledge exchange. The creation of the Centre for Research on Bilingualism at Stockholm University in the 1980s emerges as a significant event in the evolving account of the research area. The conversation also makes clear that the history of bi/multilingualism research encompasses a variety of agents and interests. The subject area maintains mutable connections to numerous other scientific disciplines and is susceptible to various forms of intellectual influence. It has likewise been shaped in relation to various scholarly and societal values and concerns. By clarifying some of these dynamics, the article contributes to the yet-to-be-written history of bi/multilingualism research. It also comments on conversation as a scholarly method, and clarifies the scope and strength of its claims.

    Abstract [sv]

    Hans Strand: Vad händer mellan B- och C-uppsats? Studenters skrivutveckling i medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap. S&S NF 16, 2006, s. 35–73.

    Denna studie handlar om hur studenter inom ämnet medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap (MKV) vid Stockholms universitet förhåller sig till en viss typ av genrekompetens. Syftet är att ta reda på följande: I vad mån tillägnar sig dessa studenter när de skriver sina B- och C-uppsatser den typ av genrekompetens som de etablerade forskarna besitter – i det följande kallad forskarnormen – och i vad mån gör de inte detta?

    Undersökningsmaterialet utgörs av 16 B-uppsatser från ht 2000 och 14 C-uppsatser från vt 2001 (alla som blev klara i tid under respektive termin). Tre delstudier har genomförts. Den första behandlar det yttre textmönstret, dvs. de olika delar eller avsnitt som förekommer i B- och C-uppsatserna samt längden på dessa avsnitt. Den andra gäller det inre textmönstret, dvs. de olika avsnittens utformning och (i viss mån) inbördes relationer. Den tredje avser en delmängd av materialet som helhet, närmare bestämt fem uppsatspar, som har närstuderats i olika avseenden. (En B- och C-uppsats som författats av exakt samma person eller personer bildar ett uppsatspar.)

    Följande slutsatser dras: Någon form av skrivutveckling äger uppenbarligen rum mellan B- och C-uppsats. Utvecklingen kan dock antas se något olika ut för skilda individer (beroende på deras bakgrund och liknande), för olika ämnen (beroende på ämnenas karaktär) och för olika språkliga företeelser (beroende på vilken del av genrekompetensen som avses osv.).Generellt sett tycks det dock vara så att det som har med uppsatsens yta att göra (t.ex. det yttre textmönstret) utvecklas tidigare och snabbare än det som har med uppsatsens djup att göra (t.ex. vissa aspekter av det inre textmönstret).Vissa sidor av genrekompetensen behärskas redan på B-nivå (t.ex. det yttre textmönstret) medan andra sidor ännu inte behärskas på C-nivå i någon högre grad (t.ex. vissa aspekter av det inre textmönstret). Adekvat undervisning i akademiskt skrivande kan sannolikt underlätta och påskynda studenternas utveckling i viss mån. Samtidigt går det inte att bortse från att studenternas möjligheter (och kanske också ambitioner) att tillägna sig och tillämpa forskarnormen är begränsade eftersom de befinner sig i en annan situation än forskarna och lärarna.

    Abstract [en]

    The study treats three language-planning actions in Sweden during 1990—2010, concerning expressions categorizing human beings. The expressions are person med intellektuell funktionsnedsättning ʻperson with intellectual impairment’, rom ʻRom’ and hbt-person ʻLGBT person’. The study is conducted within the framework of discourse analysis. Data comprise interviews, legal documents, information texts and minutes. The methodology includes analysis in three layers: intratextual, agent and transtextual. The following units are extracted: metalinguistic propositions about the new expressions, agents involved, what power can be attributed to these agents, media used, and the sociopolitical context influencing the processes. A pattern for common features of the three language-planning actions is proposed. According to this pattern, the process starts with dissatisfaction with an existing linguistic expression and a wish for change. The dissatisfaction originates from a mismatch between the linguistic expression and the concept it is supposed to name. This mismatch in turn can be traced to ideological change in society. Agents leading language-planning possess political power, or communicate with that power. The new expressions are spread by people in politics and administration, as well as by mass media.

    Abstract [en]

    To assume that a classroom is a place for interaction and a multivoiced arena is neither new norcontroversial. Today it is common that students are given more space on the conversational floor,in the name of democracy and dialogue-based pedagogy. However this does not mean that theteacher can abdicate from her or his responsibilities. On the contrary, a dialogical classroom requireshighly skilled teachers who know how to lead the classroom interaction and classroom activitiestoward the necessary goals in a constructive way. This article shows how important it is fora (high school) teacher to make conscious verbal choices in the interaction with students in orderto give them the best and most solid support during a writing project.The framework in this article is interactional analysis (activity analysis, CA, text analysis) froma sociocultural perspective. The analysis is carried out as a close study of the interaction during avideo-recorded writing project in a Swedish classroom.Keywords: writing development, classroom interaction, oral language education, teacher interaction,interactional sociolinguistics, conversation analysis, Swedish.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we present an analysis of writing in the subject field of Swedish. We introduce how three

    teachers individually work with writing processes in their groups of thirteen or sixteen-year old

    students. The study is mainly based on classroom observations and video recordings.

    Our model of analysis has emerged from comparison of our data and consists of three points of

    departure: chains of text (reading and writing in the classroom), talk about text, and typologies of texts

    that are constructed in the classrooms.

    The results of the analysis show differences and similarities in various systematic ways, concerning

    the writing processes as well as the organisation of the classrooms. One of the teachers mainly focuses

    on the organisation of thought, another on the organisation of the world outside school, and the third on

    more general knowledge. The teachers’ didactic choices can be said to show the practical outcome of

    pedagogical theories based on process discourse, functional discourse, and genre discourse.

    While the classrooms differ to a large extent, the teachers nonetheless abide by the national

    curricula for Swedish, but in their own way.

    The study is carried out as a part of the project “Text- and Knowledge Development in School”.
