    Reconstructing constructional semantics: The dative subject construction in Old Norse-Icelandic, Latin, Ancient Greek, Old Russian and Old Lithuanian2012In: Studies in Language, ISSN 0378-4177, E-ISSN 1569-9978, Vol. 36, no 3, p. 511-547Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As the historical linguistic community is well aware, reconstructing semantics is a notoriously difficult undertaking. Such reconstruction has so far mostly been carried out on lexical items, like words and morphemes, and has not been conducted for larger and more complex linguistic units, which intuitively seems to be a more intricate task, especially given the lack of methodological criteria and guidelines within the field. This follows directly from the fact that most current theoretical frameworks are not construction-based, that is, they do not assume that constructions are form-meaning correspondences. In order to meet this challenge, we present an attempt at reconstructing constructional semantics, and more precisely the semantics of the Dative Subject Construction for an earlier stage of Indo-European. For this purpose we employ lexical semantic verb classes in combination with the semantic map model (Bar partial derivative dal 2007, Bar partial derivative dal, Kristoffersen & Sveen 2011), showing how incredibly stable semantic fields may remain across long time spans, and how reconstructing such semantic fields may be accomplished

    Dass Sie so argumentieren, erschreckt mich!: Strategien der verbalen Ablehnung in Fernsehtalkshows.2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    German talk shows enjoy great popularity among the TV audience and the most acclaimed ones can reach several million viewers each week. Talk shows are public platforms where the participants give their opinion on current events and present their ideas to a broad audience. The fact that they take place in public is of great importance. As politicians, journalists or legal experts, they do not only take part in a debate but also represent their own public image or possibly even the institutions they work for. The role they take within the discussion influences the perception of them as a person during the show and can affect their professional life outside of the talk show as well. This thesis analyses acts of verbal rejections used by participants and moderators of German TV talk shows as to how they impact the image of the recipient with regard to their role within the discussion. In accordance with the concept of face, introduced by Goffman, Brown and Levinson, this study evaluates acts of rejection according to their potential of face threatening, as well as possible revaluation for the critics own face. The analysis will draw attention to expressions used to undermine other participants’ ability to argue correctly as well as their credibility in the discussion assessing the importance of such acts in the light of the public nature of the discussion. Finally, this paper will also give view of the moderators’ role in the show, as, apart from their neutral leading position in the discussion, they too can express rejection or become victim of the participants’ criticism.

    Zur Bedeutung des Vergleichs in Eichendorffs Erzählwerk: "...ihm war, als spiegelte sich wunderbar sein Leben wie ein Traum noch einmal wieder"2005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present dissertation investigates similes and their importance in Eichendorff’s narrative work. The sources of the investigation consist of seven of Eichendorff’s narratives. Their 734 similes make up the corpus, which is presented in its entirety in the appendix. The context of the similes is partly included as well.

    Initially, I define the concept of “simile” more precisely, partly distancing myself from the definitions found in classical dictionaries of literary terms. After this, I describe my procedure for analysis in detail. This turned out to be necessary, since there was no similar study to be found on this topic in the extensive literature on Eichendorff. The search for models of types of similes brought me back to antique rhetoric as well as to Middle High German epic poems. In the first analysis, the types of similes occurring in the corpus are presented. The syntactic structures of image receivers and image givers are used as criteria. Four structures of similes occurred: a) classical similes and b) similes with image givers, which represent adverbial clauses and c) as / as if – clauses or are d) subject-related. The frequency and the development of frequency of types of similes are presented as well.

    In the second step of the thesis, I investigate whether similes tend to depict conditions/qualities or procedures/actions. It turned out that similes reflecting conditions/qualities, i.e. epic similes, dominated strongly. The high number of similes could possibly be explained by the functions carried out by epic similes in narrative texts.

    In the third part, I concern myself with the question whether the similes of the corpus are imaginative representations only and what kind of sensorial perceptions they express. Admittedly, the dominating percentage of the similes proved to be images, but more than fifteen per cent consist of sounds and other sensorial perceptions. Furthermore, imaginative similes, but also sounding similes express motion, so that they illustrate pictures in motion and sounding motion respectively. These come close to synaesthesia, whereas only five similes illustrate „pure“ synaesthesia. In contrast, subject-related similes are perceptions of different sensations and feelings, illustrating the inner life of a character not shared by any other character.

    Finally, the semantic content of the similes is investigated in order to determine the metamorphosis, i.e. the trope transfer from proprium to improprium. It turned out that only the classical simile originating in antique rhetoric is suitable for a semantic analysis. Above all, there is great variation in the trope transfer. The metamorphosis human beingnature dominates strongly, which makes the narrative text appear as a palimpsest, in which yet another world glimmer in front of the human being behind every character. However, the many trope transfers that convey realityunreality could be interpreted as transitions and as a “magical code” of Eichendorff.

    Furthermore, the semantic analysis uncovers content and motives of classical similes. It becomes clear that pre-constructed – and only pre-constructed - content is imitated here. Consequently, it can be asserted that Eichendorff’s great number of similes constitute or at least contribute to the formulaic manner (according to Kohlschmidt) and the intertextuality (according to Nienhaus) in Eichendorff’s narrative work.

    Above all, the subject-related simile type turns out to be a typical representative of Romanticism because of its subjectivism. Together with its preformed semantic content, it constitutes the “romantic formula” of Eichendorff’s work.

    Abstract [en]

    The names of railway stations and halts along the earliest railway lines on Lithuanian territory have been studied, i.e. along those railway lines built between 1861 and 1873. Especially, attention has been drawn to names that are not obvious regarding the geographical location of the station or halt. Some 50 percent of the names are showing some kind of irregularity in this respect. Most common (about 30 examples) are stations or halts that are serving a population centre situated at some distance from the station, but still bearing the name of that population centre. Another group of interesting cases is where the names have been changed over history for different reasons. These examples are about 20 in number. Among the examples of changed names are those, mostly minor halts, initially with no name but just a number, but later on provided with proper names. Most striking examples of name giving policy of the stations are railway junctions or border stations like Kaišiadorys, Virbalis/Kybartai, Švenčionėliai, Sniečkus/Visaginas, Maţeikiai/Muravjevo and Turmantas. Another dimension regarding names of railway stations in Lithuania is the fact that several languages (Lithuanian, Russian, Polish and German) have been used officially during the 150 years of the existence of Lithuanian railways.

    Abstract [de]

    Dieser Aufsatz behandelt die Erzählung Fräulein Else von Arthur Schnitzler und im Zentrum steht Elses Schlaftraum auf der Bank. Die Aufgabe des Aufsatzes ist herauszufinden, wie der psychische Zustand Elses ihren Schlaftraum beeinflusst. Um ein tieferes Verständnis für die Traumdeutung zu entfalten, wird auch der bedeutungsvolle Psychoanalytiker Freud, in einem Vergleich mit Arthur Schnitzler, präsentiert. Außerdem wird die Persönlichkeit Elses kurz vorgeführt und dies um Elses Wünsche und Hoffnungen besser verstehen zu können. Ein Einblick in den tatsächlichen Traum wird auch vermittelt aber im Fokus steht die Interpretation des Traumes und die wird natürlich auch eingehend präsentiert. In der Schlussfolgerung ist es außerdem möglich der Analyse des Traumes weiter zu folgen.

    Non-canonical case-marking on core arguments in Lithuanian: A historical and contrastive perspective2014Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis presents a description and analysis of non-canonical case-marking of core arguments in Lithuanian. It consists of an introduction and six articles, providing historical and/or contrastive perspective to this issue. More specifically, using data from Lithuanian dialects, Old Lithuanian and other languages such as Icelandic, Latin and Finnic for comparison, the thesis examines the development and current state of non-canonical case-marking of core arguments in Lithuanian The present work draws on empirical findings and theoretical considerations to investigate non-canonical case-marking, language variation and historical linguistics.

    Special attention is paid to the variation in the case-marking of body parts in pain verb constructions, where an accusative-marked body part is used in Standard Lithuanian, and alongside, a nominative-marked body part in Lithuanian dialects. A common objective of the first three articles is to clarify and to seek a better understanding for the reasons for this case variation. The research provides evidence that nominative is the original case-marking of body parts in pain specific construction, i.e. with verbs, with the original meaning of pain, like skaudėti and sopėti ‘hurt, feel pain’. On the contrary, in derived pain constructions, i.e. with verbs like gelti with the original meaning of ‘sting, bite’ and diegti with the original meaning ‘plant’, accusative is the original case-marking of body parts. This accusative is explained by means of an oblique anticausative and it is argued furthermore that it is extended into the pain specific construction. The three last articles focus on the comparative and contrastive perspective. Their main results include the following: Lithuanian and Icelandic differ considerably in the frequency of using accusative vs. dative marking on the highest ranked argument. Accusative is more frequently used in Lithuanian while dative is dominant in Icelandic. The semantic fields of the dative subject construction have remained very stable, suggesting that the dative subject construction is inherited. It has, however, become productive in the history of Germanic, Baltic and Slavic. The similarities in Finnic and Baltic partiality-based object and subject-marking systems are due to Baltic influence.

    Die schwedische Rezeption zentraler Begriffe der deutschen Frühromantik: Schlüsselwortanalysen zu den Zeitschriften Athenäum und Phosphoros2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present thesis illustrates the German influence on the Swedish Romantic Movement around 1800 from a linguistic perspective, the method being contrastive analysis of how the central German and Swedish concepts Anschauung/åskådning, Einhildungskraft/inbillningskraft, Phantasie/fantasi, Enthusiasmus/entusiasm, Gemüt/gemyt and Genie/geni/snille are used in the programmatic journals Athenäum (1798-1800) and Phosphoros (1810-1813).

    In what contexts are these concepts used, what are their principal connotations, in what collocations do they appear and what semantic shifts can be established from the material? The major issue concerns the testing of key word criteria elaborated by German scholars, notably the so-called Düsseldorfer Gruppe. The analyses of the German and Swedish texts show that the above-mentioned concepts meet their criteria for key words, the exception being Swedish gemyt, which takes over semantic components from Gemian Gemüt but never achieves key word status.

    The investigation clearly shows that the German concepts in Athenäum had a considerable impact on those of the corresponding Swedish ones in Phosphoros, particularly at a connotative level. The present study provides linguistic evidence for the long-standing claims of literary and historical scholars about the influence of German Romanticism on its Swedish counterpart.

    The most significant quality of the analysed concepts proved to be their metalinguistic capacity of constantly giving rise to comments in actual discourse, explicitly or implicitly. Previous research has demonstrated that key word status is achieved when a new meaning is introduced. This view is corroborated in the analysed contexts, where the concepts either show a new denotative or connotative meaning or comment on an on-going conceptual discussion. A conspicuous feature is that the words at issue here share semantic components to a great extent, all of them being concerned with the creative process. Einbildungskraft, Phantasie and Enthusiasmus can all signify the divine inspiration that Genie is provided with by means of Gemüt and Anschauung. As a consequence, the investigated concepts tend to appear in clusters, illustrating their programmatic function as key words representing the ideas of the Romantic Movement.

    Die Verwendung des Begriffes Flüchtling im innerdeutschen politischen Diskurs im Jahr 19892012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In his diaries analysing the German language during the Nazi period, the German philologist Victor Klemperer notes how certain words are of such importance to a given historical period that they actually reflect the thinking of an era, a claim that forms the basis for this thesis. Based on a combination of Key Word Analysis and Critical Discourse Analysis, enhanced by applying Discourse Semantics and History of Concepts, the paper analyses the usage of the term Flüchtling (refugee) in German media during the autumn of 1989, how it is used during this period and how studying this usage provides the reader with access to the mentality of the German public at the time.

    After describing the relevant theories and methods, the thesis describes the development of the term refugee, both semantically and in legal terms. The international conventions that form the basis for the international legal understanding of the term are presented as well as the applicable German legal framework. It is shown that the term indeed constitutes a key word, and through a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, the usage and connotational shift of refugee is presented in text and tables.

    The findings are that while the general perception of the German media (and the population) during the summer were neutral to negative, the general euphoria in West Germany about the events in the GDR led to a more positive perception, that culminated in October. After the opening of the Wall in November, refugees all but disappear from the news reporting, and when they are mentioned, it is with the same negative connotation as during the summer.

    Mellan dröm och verklighet: Skildringar av tid, trauma och sexualitet i Antanas Škėmas novellistiska prosa2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The subject of this dissertation is the representation of temporality, trauma and sexuality in Antanas Škėma’s fiction. The chapter “Temporal structures” examines temporal order in the writer’s novella “Isaac” according to Genettes narratology. The analysis reveals deliberately inserted mechanisms in the construction of the text, which disrupt the narrative investigation. A survey of temporal structures exposes invented events in the text and the definitions of “factual reality” and “imaginary reality” are introduced.

    The narrative analysis results in a hypothesis that Škėma’s text has been constructed as an imitation of human memory and as a representation of the factual reality outside the text. The chapters “Representation of trauma” and “Representation of sexual perversion” use Freud’s trauma theory and sexual theory as a method. Trauma appears to constitute the construction of the narrator and his urge to distort temporal links between the narrative and the story. When the narrator in Škėma’s “Isaac” focuses on the depiction of sexually perverted consciousness, the text affects the reader by forcing him to break off his horizons of expectation. The depiction of rape in Škėma’s fiction links the themes of sexuality and power and of sexuality and trauma. The writer detaches the representation of sexuality from the definition of love: sexuality, portrayed in the analyzed texts, appears to create its own norms. This is one of many ways to transform the depiction of sexual perversion into a social norm in Škėma’s narrative.

    The chapter “Škėma’s Autobiography and literary critics” provides a re-reading of the writer’s autobiography and his journalistic texts. The chapter ”Publication and reception of Škėma’s fiction” provides a compiled reading of earlier research and a survey of the writer’s books published in exile.

    Vom Narren zum Gralskönig: Die Bedeutung der minne für Parzivals Entwicklung2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    From an ingenious fool to the Grail King: the significance of courtly love in Wolfram’s Parzival

    The focus of this thesis lies on the doctrines in courtly behavior, a multifaceted system of chivalric norms and behaviors often referred to as the knightly virtue system based on the literature of the early and high Middle Ages. The aim of this thesis is to study the different aspects, such as religious, military, courtly and romantic, of the knightly virtue system. The romantic aspect of the knightly ideal is given particular attention, as it is the focus of this paper.

    The word minne is the bearer of the romantic aspect and is central in Wolfram’s von Eschenbach Parzival which is the main source studied. The following issues are discussed in more detail: how the knightly ideal is presented in Wolfram’s epic and to what extent the minne affects the development of Parzival to the Grail king. In the course of this thesis it will also be shown that the romantic aspect is the most influential aspect of the knightly virtue system and that this particular aspect truly defines an ideal knight.

    Juhani Aho i Sverige: Pressmottagande och Nobelpriskandidatur2008Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The novelist and short-story writer Juhani Aho (1861–1921) was highly renowned in Finland at the turn of the 20th century  and was often considered an author of national importance during the early 1900s. A significant part of his literary works were translated into Swedish, and the Swedish newspapers quite frequently published reviews of these translations. The first part of this study deals with the views expressed by critics in Swedish newspapers from the 1880s to the time of Aho’s death at the beginning of the 1920s. Analysis of these reviews shows that works depicting Finns in rural settings as poor, quiet and hardworking were highly acclaimed, whereas urban stories with a cosmopolitan content were judged to be strange, surprising and not very good literature. The critics’ views of Aho’s literary world correspond to old Swedish sentiments of Finland and its people.

    As documents from the archives of the Swedish Academy reveal, Aho was nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature several times during the early years of the 1900s. It was mainly learned societies and academic institutions in Finland who sent proposals in Aho’s favour to the Academy, although some members of the Swedish Academy also supported Aho’s candidacy. There were several reasons why his candidacy never came close to being seriously considered. Firstly, during the earlier years Aho had to compete with literature from the entire western world as well as its most renowned representatives. Secondly, during the Great War the Nobel Committee advocated a strictly neutral literary policy, which resulted in the exclusion of nominees such as Aho, who had earlier spoken out against Russian oppression in Finland. To this can be added the idiosyncratic views held by leading Academy members concerning the status of Finnish as a cultural language.

    Usage-based approaches to language change2014Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Usage-based approaches to language have gained increasing attention in the last two decades. The importance of change and variation has always been recognized in this framework, but has never received central attention. It is the main aim of this book to fill this gap. Once we recognize that usage is crucial for our understanding of language and linguistic structures, language change and variation inevitably take centre stage in linguistic analysis. Along these lines, the volume presents eight studies by international authors that discuss various approaches to studying language change from a usage-based perspective. Both theoretical issues and empirical case studies are well-represented in this collection. The case studies cover a variety of different languages – ranging from historically well-studied European languages via Japanese to the Amazonian isolate Yurakaré with no written history at all. The book provides new insights relevant for scholars interested in both functional and cognitive linguistic theory, in historical linguists and in language typology.

    Die Darstellung von dem Frauenbild Medeas: Eine Untersuchung von dem Medeabild in drei verschiedenen Fassungen2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

     

    In this Thesis three different versions of the Medea myth are analysed. They stem from the Antique, the 19th century and the 20th century, respectively. Analyses are made of how the female image of Medea is portrayed and if different historical perceptions of woman are being projected in the female image of Medea. The development of the myth and the drama is also being presented showing how it can influence the image of Medea.

    In Euripides version from the Antique, Medea is shown as both a human and with a more supernatural side. This is also typical for myths from these times. However, what sets Euripides apart from other stories from that age is that it contains a female protagonist with a strong character. In Franz Grillparzers story from the 19th century, Medea is still portrayed having a strong and independent nature, albeit no longer with supernatural properties. Instead she is driven by traditional human romantic characteristics displayed by her love towards Jason. In the version written by Christa Wolf, Medea is portrayed as a strong independent woman as in the other versions, albeit misunderstood by the society surrounding her. Her emancipated character becomes evident by the cultural differences displayed by Medea on one hand and society on the other hand. Also, Christa Wolf rewrites the myth into a novel and incorporates other aspects to the story such as a profound Scapegoat theme, by some described as a rewriting of the myth by incorporating personal experiences into the story.

    However, the main character of Medea - her independence and strong character is a common denominator in all the three stories.

    Language contact and structural change: An Old Finnish case study2006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The object of this study is to shed new light on both the influence exerted on Finnish by the Swedish language, and on the mechanisms by which language contact in structural domains takes place. It is argued that syntactic borrowing should be regarded as a subtype of reanalysis and extension rather than as an independent mechanism. Also, the need to regard linguistic structural change as teleologically motivated rather than deterministically caused is stressed. Possibilities to apply a framework based on A.N. Whitehead’s process philosophy to language change are explored.

    The corpus consists of six legal translations from the 1580s to 1759. The areas studied, all relating to Finnish object and subject marking, are those of the Finnish passive, which under foreign influence has shown tendencies to change from a typically non-promotional passive to a promotional passive; Finnish necessitive constructions, which form an active-stative subsystem within Finnish with marked active subjects and unmarked objects/non-active subjects but have shown tendencies to develop a nominative-accusative system in dialects influenced by Swedish; and the Finnish relative word "kuin", which has been taken to be a Swedish calque modelled on "som".

    The result is a complex interplay of reanalyses and extensions with foreign model patterns involved to a varying degree. Development of a promotional passive seems to involve both internal semantic factors and Swedish models. Necessitive subjects appear to be marked or unmarked on the basis of a merger between constructions involving active subjects and passive objects, possibly modelled on Swedish. And the relative word "kuin" has been integrated into Old Finnish in a way at odds with the usage of the model pattern. This vindicates abandoning the dichotomy between “internal” and “external” changes, and regarding language contact as a background factor rather than as an independent cause.
