    Hodný, zlý a ošklivý (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly): The representation of three minority groups in printed media discourse from the Czech Republic2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta arbete är att göra en kvantitativ, korpusbaserad undersökning av den språkliga andrafieringen av tre minoritetsgrupper: romer, vietnameser och ukrainare, i den tjeckiska mediadiskursen under 15 år, samt att få ett omfattande, representativt resultat genom att jämföra neutrala, positiva och negativa adjektiv som står intill sökorden. Till teoretisk grund ligger hur språket hjälper till att bygga och förstärka maktstrukturer samt hur korpussökningar efter kollokationer och närliggande ord kan tydliggöra en språklig andrafiering. Här används en kvantitativ metod för att besvara analytiska frågor om dessa benämningar. Materialet som ligger till grund för analysen är SYN version 4 i det tjeckiska Nationalkorpuset – i sin helhet består det av 275 miljoner meningar. Det verkar inte tidigare ha utförts någon sådan undersökning på ett så stort material, även om några forskare har använt liknande metoder.

    Resultatet bekräftar att de olika grupperna beskrivs på olika sätt, och är, genom det stora källmaterialet, ett bevis på hur språket i mediadiskursen speglar diskursen i samhället i stort.

    Language and Power in Czech Corpora2017In: Computational and Corpus-based Phraseology: Recent Advances and Interdisciplinary Approaches / [ed] Ruslan Mitkov, Geneva: Editions Tradulex , 2017, Vol. 2, p. 174-177Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The author focuses on quantitatively examining the linguistic other- ing in printed media discourse in the Czech Republic, using the Czech National Corpus. The method used so far has been a corpus-based discourse analysis based on the adjectives preceding the keywords for each part of the project, now moving on to include reporting verbs. The theoretical starting point is that power relations in a society are reflected in that society’s mainstream media, and that the language usage in these media contributes to the worldview of its recipients, in some cases even helps to construct it. Frequent but widely dis- persed stereotypical and negative phrases and collocations are examples of a power language that may not be visible at once, but slowly enters the general discourse in a society. This project aims to survey these linguistic othering phrases in the Czech media discourse, as comprehensively as possible, and shed some light on their appearance over time.

    Language and power in Czech media – a corpus analysis of linguistic othering2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The author focuses on quantitatively examining the linguistic othering in printed media discourse in the Czech Republic, using the Czech National Corpus. Currently, the subcorpus includes news papers and magazines from 1989 to 2015. The method used so far has been a corpus-based discourse analysis based first on the adjectives preceding the keywords for each part of the project, now moving on to reporting verbs surrounding them. The theoretical starting point is that power relations in a society are reflected in that society’s mainstream media, and that the language usage in these media contributes to the worldview of its recipients, in some cases even helps to construct it. Frequent but widely dispersed stereotypical and negative phrases and collocations are examples of a power language that may not be visible at once, but slowly enters the general discourse in a society. This project aims to survey these linguistic othering phrases in the Czech media discourse, as comprehensively as possible, and shed some light on their appearance over time. At the time of writing, minorities and gender differentiation have been in focus, respectively.

    These women’s verbs: A combined corpus and discourse analysis on reporting verbs about women and men in Czech media 1989–20152017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims at analyzing how women and men in five different professions are portrayed and represented through reporting verbs in Czech media over a period of 25 years (end of 1989 to the beginning of 2015). The empirical data consist of entire newspapers and magazines in the source material, a subcorpus from the Czech National Corpus. The theoretical basis is Critical discourse analysis and the methodical is a corpus-based statistical analysis. Binary categories from the Harvard Psychosociological Dictionary are used to classify the reporting verbs. After a quantitative study, the results are clear for some professions and less clear for others, and these results are analyzed.

    This study could not (at least not without severe adjustments) have been performed in languages like English, where the distinction between the female and male professional concepts is less clear. In the chapter on previous research, special attention is given to the Czech context, and the chapter also explains this study’s contribution to previous research in language, power and corpus studies.

    Är en zigenare mer oanpassningsbar än en rom?: En pilotstudie om kollokationer för orden cikán och rom i modern, tjeckisk tidningstext2016In: Slovo: Journal of Slavic Languages, Literatures and Cultures , E-ISSN 2001-7359, no 57, p. 9-23Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Are “Gypsies” less adaptable than “Roma”? A pilot study on collocations for the Czech words Cikán and Rom in modern newspaper and magazine texts

    The purpose of this study is to explore the linguistic Othering of Roma people in a large corpus of modern newspaper and magazine texts in Czech. The texts that form the basis of the chosen corpus are taken from the Czech Republic’s largest daily newspapers and some of the largest magazines, which have sizable readerships. Answers to my hypotheses and questions about adjectives are given from a purely statistical perspective. Although more negative than positive adjectives are found before both studied terms – Rom and Cikán, many are neutral or stereotypically neutral. This study demonstrates how corpus linguistics can contribute to research into Othering, since the method used provides results from a substantial amount of basic data. The results are in line with previous research, and confirm it by means of an analysis of a large amount of data.
