    “It is not important whether one speaks British English or American English”: A Questionnaire-Based Study of English Teachers’ Attitudes in Sweden2018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Although there have been some studies conducted in Sweden about the language attitudes

    towards different varieties of English, most of these studies have focused on the language

    attitudes found amongst students. There have not, however, been many studies conducted

    that examines teachers’ language attitudes. The focus of the present study is to investigate

    which attitudes are found towards two varieties of English, American English and British

    English, amongst English teachers in Sweden. The study also aims to explore whether the

    teachers’ age and language backgrounds have an impact on the teachers’ attitudes. The

    hypothesis was that older teachers would be more positively inclined towards British

    English while younger teachers would prefer American English. Furthermore, it was also

    hypothesized that teachers who grew up monolingual would prefer British English and

    those who grew up bilingual would favour American English. The data collection method

    that was used in the study was a questionnaire which was distributed online to English

    teachers in Sweden. 115 teachers participated in the study and answered the

    questionnaire, which provided both quantitative and qualitative data. The results of the

    study show that the teachers seem to display equally positive attitudes towards both

    varieties. For example, American English is favoured in terms of being most familiar,

    easiest to understand and easiest to teach. British English, on the other hand, is favoured

    in terms of pleasantness and is in many ways seen as more respected. The findings of the

    study did confirm the hypotheses to a certain degree. The results showed a tendency

    amongst younger teachers and teachers who have grown up bilingual to prefer American

    English. In contrast, the tendency amongst older teachers and teachers who have grown

    up monolingual was to prefer British English. Overall, the results of the study raise the

    question of how these attitudes affect the teachers’ teaching of English.

    Speech Acts in Holy Scriptures: An Investigation of the Usage of Speech Acts in the Qur’an2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on pragmatics and more specifically on the study of speech acts. It aims to investigate which speech acts can be found in three chapters of the Holy Qur’an. It also aims to categorise the speech acts that are found in these chapters and to examine whether some types of speech act are more common than others. Furthermore, two different translated English versions of the Qur’an were analysed in the study in order to also investigate if translation affected the categorisation of speech acts. The chapters, or surahs, chosen for this study are Surah Ash-Sharh, Surah Az-Zalzalah and lastly Surah At-Takathur. The methodology for the study was qualitative textual analysis, and each verse of each surah was analysed and categorised as belonging to a certain type of speech act. The five different categories of speech acts were commissives, representatives, directives, expressives and declaratives. The results of the study show that in surah Ash-Sharh there were two commissives and six directives. Secondly, surah Az-Zalzalah had four commissives and four representatives. Lastly, surah At-Takathur had six commissives and two representatives. Moreover, the results of the study also showed that half of the speech acts found in these three chapters were commissives, making it the most common speech act type and twice as common as representatives and directives. Finally, the results also showed that translation did not influence the categorisation of the speech acts. In other words, the classification of the speech acts was identical for both translated versions of the chapters.

    The Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ (ASEAN) Conflict Management Approach Revisited: Will the Charter Reinforce ASEAN’s Role?2009In: Austrian Journal of South-East Asian Studies, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 6-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main aim of this study is to assess the role played by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in the management and resolution of disputes between its member-states in the South-East Asian region. The ASEAN approach to conflict management is outlined and the context in which it has developed is presented. The achievements and challenges that ASEAN has faced and is still facing in the field of conflict management are identified. ASEAN’s contribution to conflict management in the South-East Asian region is recognized, although the nature of the contribution and the role played by the Association is debated. ASEAN’s model and approach to conflict and dispute management and the possible impact of the approach on the conflict situation in the South-East Asian region are examined from three main dimensions: (1) the core elements of the approach; (2) the role played by the Association in terms of conflict management; (3) the possible impact of the ASEAN approach in managing disputes among its member-states. The possible impact of recent developments within ASEAN – the ASEAN Charter in particular – is analyzed in assessing the role that the Association can play in promoting conflict management.

    Regional Conflict Management: Challenges of the Border Disputes of Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam2009In: Austrian Journal of South-East Asian Studies, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 53-80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyzes the border disputes of Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam, respectively. Both settled and unsettled disputes are encompassed. The study outlines the settlements reached and the remaining unsettled disputes. Furthermore, the broader trends in managing the border disputes are analyzed and remaining challenges, both in implementing agreements and in managing the unsettled disputes, are addressed. So are the implications for regional conflict management. The study displays that both Laos and Vietnam have made considerable progress in both managing and settling their existing border disputes, whereas Cambodia has thus far been less successful.

    The Integration of the Four Skills in English in an Indian Classroom: A study of the integration of speaking, listening, reading and writing in the English classroom in a primary school in Vadodara, India2011Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study and field trip is to study how English as a second language is taught in a school in India. The focus will be on the materials used during the lessons and how they are used by the teacher. My concentration will be on a primary school in Vadodara, Gujarat in India and my delimitation will be on English learned as a second language in a governmental school.  The purpose of this study is to describe and analyze how English teachers in local government schools in Vadodara, Gujarat focus on the integration of the four skills; speaking, listening, reading and writing during the English lessons. I have gathered data through interviews, observations and through the material used during the lesson. The results of the empirical findings are that even though the government has specific goals, focusing on the teaching of the four skills, for the schools these goals cannot be attained. These goals can be found in the syllabus which is presented in the theoretical background of the essay. Even though the teachers state that they can use different materials teaching English, the only material used in the classroom is the textbook and all the lessons are based on it. To be able to "pronounce English words and word-clusters and sentences occurring in the text; correctly" was a speaking goal that was difficult for the students to attain. The reason for that may be because of the teachers’ lack of proficiency in the English language.

    Spanglish Vs Yanito: Análisis de fenómenos pragmáticos en la mezcla de código lingüístico2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [es]

    Desde hace casi 300 años junto al estrecho de Gibraltar pervive una colonia inglesa en la que conviven dos lenguas, inglés y español. La primera es la lengua oficial de la colonia y la segunda es la lengua de contacto de las poblaciones limítrofes. A más de 5000 km de Gibraltar, se encuentran la lengua inglesa y española entre la población de origen hispano residente en EEUU. El objetivo del presente estudio es comparar las estrategias de atenuación, actos de habla e imagen social que tienen lugar durante la mezcla de códigos entre inglés y español en estos dos contextos diferentes para, de esta manera, ver si podemos hallar similitudes y diferencias en el uso de fenómenos pragmáticos en la mezcla de códigos de español e inglés entre el spanglish y el yanito. Para ello analizamos la mezcla de códigos en las oraciones de dos conversaciones informales de extensión similar con el objetivo de encontrar una respuesta al objeto de nuestro estudio. Primero seleccionamos las oraciones donde se produce el cambio de código siguiendo el método de análisis de contenido temático. Posteriormente analizamos el contenido de una conversación telefónica en yanito y el podcast de una entrevista de radio en spanglish desde el punto de vista pragmático, identificando las estrategias de atenuación, actos de habla y la imagen social de afiliación/autonomía en ambos corpus. Los resultados más significativos sugieren que desde el punto de vista pragmático en yanito se busca influir más en la interlocutora, pero manteniendo una mayor intención de afiliación, mientras que en spanglish se tiende más a acotar lo dicho, justificando y usando con mayor frecuencia la imagen social de autonomía. En ambos casos el acto ilocutivo más empleado es el asertivo, sin embargo, en spanglish se da un mayor número de actos expresivos.

    Textrörlighet och kohesion i textsamtal: gymnasieelever talar om texter i svenska och historia2013In: Genre / Tionde nationella konferensen i svenska med didaktisk inriktning, Stockholm 18-19 oktober: genre / [ed] Judith-Ann Chrystal, Maria Lim Falk, Stockholm: Nationella nätverket för svenska med didaktisk inriktning , 2013, p. 17-28Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln handlar om textsamtals potential att stötta elevers läsning av texter de möter i undervisningssammanhang. Artikeln presenterar analyser av tre textsamtalsutdrag i ämnena svenska och historia på gymnasiet. Samtalen i svenska är lärarledda och sam- talet i historia är elevstyrt. Materialet hämtas från två pågående avhandlingsprojekt i språkdidaktik och analyseras med avseende på textrörlighet och lexikal kohesion. Det första utdraget illustrerar ett lärarlett samtal som rör sig utanför och på ytan i den text som diskuteras. Det andra visar ett lärarlett samtal där läraren på ett struktu-rerat sätt styr samtalet så att eleverna leds in i texten och stimuleras till en fördjupad textbaserad läsning. Det tredje visar på ett elevstyrt samtal utifrån en strukturerad samtalsmodell där eleverna använder såväl egna erfarenheter som texten för att be-svara textfrågor. Eleverna uttrycker alltså såväl associativ som textbaserad textrör-lighet i samtalet och visar ofta på en djup textrörlighet. Analyser av kohesion visar hur textinnehåll kommer till uttryck i samtalen, framförallt genom att nyckelbegrepp från texten fångas upp och repeteras.Resultaten visar hur olika sätt att arbeta med text kan ge olika stöttande potential för elevers möjligheter att röra sig på flera nivåer i texten. Sammanfattningsvis pekar artikeln på den lärandepotential som strukturerade och väl förberedda textsamtal kan innebära.

    How and Why?: The uses of textbooks in the EFL classroom2020Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 330 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The debate about textbooks has been an ongoing subject of interest for teachers and didactics researchers alike. While most of the literature has been focused on the usefulness of textbooks for teachers and their appropriateness for use in classrooms, what has been lacking is teacher voices on how textbooks are used and their advantages for students. This study therefore set out to interview a small number of teachers on their opinions and experiences with textbooks in order to see how well the literature matches up against the classroom situation in a Swedish context. When analysed, the interviews provide a small picture of a set of teachers who are very aware of the limitations and potential uses of textbooks. This leaves the door open for future research into the uses of textbooks and what aspects of them are still considered positive in the current climate.

    English or Swedish - where, when and why: Young people’s attitudes towards English in Sweden2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The global development with an increased need to communicate internationally has given the English language a prominent role worldwide. Consequently, English has become an important linguistic tool in Swedish society and is now incorporated in several domains. Apart from being a lingua franca, used as a vehicular language by speakers of different first languages, English is frequently used in education and in many workplaces. It is also a language often heard on TV and when using a computer. We are surrounded by English more or less every day. There are different views on how this affects Swedish society. Some people believe that Swedish is strong enough to survive the English impact while others are concerned that English might pose a threat to the future of Swedish as Sweden’s main official language. The speakers that seem to be most committed to this issue are Swedish adults who were brought up at a time when English was not as widely used. However, we rarely hear about young people’s opinions. Today’s younger generation has been exposed to English from an early age and it is interesting to study how this might have affected their attitudes to the current and future linguistic situation. In this project, semi-structured interviews have been carried out with six informants aged from 18 to 24 to investigate their use of English and their attitudes to this use. All informants predicted a further strengthening of the English language in the coming years but disagreed as to whether it might replace Swedish as our main official language. This study does not aim to convey an overall picture of young people’s attitudes; however, it can be seen as a basis for further discussion on the subject.

    Deontic Modal Verbs in EU Legislation: A Comparative Study of Documents in Four Germanic Languages2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The present paper is a comparative, cross-linguistic study of modal verbs in legal speech acts expressing deontic notions such as orders, prohibitions and permissions. The study comprises the four largest Germanic languages spoken today: English, German, Dutch and Swedish. With English as a reference point, EU legal documents in these four languages are compared to see how legal speech acts signalled by modal verbs in the English text are expressed in German, Dutch and Swedish. The main focus is however on English and Swedish. The material consists of EU treaties and directives, UK and Irish statutes and Swedish statutes. The legal documents are first investigated for the total amount of certain modals and words in order to get a general outline of potential differences in modal verb patterns. Secondly, a close examination of ten randomly chosen treaty articles and two directives is conducted to see how English legal speech acts containing a modal verb are translated in German, Dutch and Swedish. The initial general results for the English and Swedish EU texts are then compared to UK, Irish and Swedish national statutes.

    The results found show that Swedish has very similar modal patterns to English, although there are similarities to German and Dutch as well. Swedish is the only language that has a modal verb equivalent to deontic shall. English and Swedish is thus, in terms of deontic modal patterns, closely related while German and Dutch display equal similarities.

    Questions and Answers on the Birgittine Rule: A Letter from Vadstena to Syon Abbey 14212013In: The Journal of Medieval Monastic Studies(JMMS), ISSN 2034-3515, E-ISSN 2034-3523, Vol. 2, p. 151-172Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1421, the Birgittine monastery of Vadstena in Sweden wrote a letter to Syon Abbey in England with answers to questions raised by the English daughter house. A copy of the letter — preserved in MS A 20 at the National Archives of Sweden — discusses rules on silence and speech, the weekly chapter, gifts, the division of power between the abbess and the confessor general, as well as other matters. The letter also contains a discussion about St Birgitta’s Revelations. The present article contains an edition and translation of the letter, including a short introduction.

    Responsiones Vadstenenses: Perspectives on the Birgittine Rule in Two Texts from Vadstena and Syon Abbey. A Critical Edition with Translation and Introduction2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Syon Abbey, established as the first Birgittine monastery in England in 1415, quite soon became a powerful institution within the order. Although often asserting their own conceptions of the Rule, the English Birgittines still sought the advice of Vadstena, their mother house, when it came to certain important matters concerning monastic life.

    The present work contains editions of two Latin texts: Responsiones, a document consisting of 175 questions and answers on the Birgittine Rule and daily life in the monastery, and Collacio, a sermon reflecting similar matters.

    The first part of the Responsiones consists of answers to five questions, sent from Syon to Sweden by letter. An important issue concerns the leadership in the monastery and the role of the Birgittine brothers. Were they to be seen as monks, living in their own monastery, or as religious assistans to the sisters? The second part was written as a direct result of two English brothers visiting Vadstena in 1427 and contains 170 questions and answers dealing with various matters of importance: how to interpret certain Birgittine texts, regulations on food, silence and speech as well as questions on preaching, liturgy and introduction into the monastery.

    The Collacio, in the manuscript said to have been presented to the Swedish community, was probably written by Syon’s conservator, the Benedictine abbot John Whethamstede of St Albans. Written in a highly metaphorical language rich in references to the Bible and Classical authors, the message to the Birgittine order is clear: first, it is wrong to have two leaders (confessor general as well as abbess) in one community; second, the Birgittines should strive to dispose of later additions and explanations and seek the original and true intentions of the foundress, Saint Birgitta.

    The thesis contains an introduction, editions with translations, glossary, indices, bibliography and plates.

    This thesis studies the 1931 short story collection Portret [The Portrait] by the Russian author Leonid Ivanovich Dobychin (1894–1936?). My main argument is that the principal theme in Dobychin’s writings arises out of the complexities of human encounters. 

    My approach is based on affirmative interpretations that I call “encountering” readings. They draw on critical practices developed by Boris Gasparov, who argues in his 2013 study of Pasternak Boris Pasternak: Po tu storonu poėtiki (Filosofiia. Muzyka. Byt) that the key to Pasternak’s work lies not in the dominant feature of their linguistic texture, but in the momentary states of everyday life that the author captures, and Henri Meschonnic’s Critique du rythme: Anthropologie historique du langage (1982). Meschonnic focuses on rhythm as an intrinsic aspect of the text that requires the reader to participate actively in appreciating the text as a work of art by following the interplay between rhythm, the active subject and what is expressed. Both scholars reflect a turn away from the linguistically informed theoretical approaches that dominated the academic study of literature in the twentieth century. 

    Similarly, I approach Dobychin’s characters on the level of their personal conflicts and everyday lives by simulating an interpersonal encounter in an anti-theoretical search for meaning that is congenial to both the central theme of the stories and the way in which they reveal human encounters “beyond words,” as it were, both within the works and with the reader, through suggestive associations and not yet categorized, “precategorial” experiences in everyday life. 

    The “unoutspokenness” (nedogovorënnost’)—i.e. reticence, a deliberate avoidance of explicitness that Dobychin’s contemporary critics ascribed to his writings and often disparaged as “incomprehensibility”—serves as a starting point for a critical discussion of both earlier research on Dobychin and theoretical approaches to literature more generally. In searching for a dominant formal feature, a ‘key’ or ‘code’, in Dobychin’s writings, earlier scholars have tended to describe it in terms of an anti-aesthetic. The alleged lack of plot, inner coherence and meaning is explained as deliberate, intended to performatively mirror the absurdness and inadequacies, the disorientation and loss of meaning in Soviet reality itself. In this thesis, I argue instead that there is no such lack or incoherence in Dobychin’s works. The “nedogovorënnost’” of his short stories is instead understood as an exact and purposeful way of conveying meaning through what is experienced and shared beyond words in a time that was overburdened with idealistic ideological discourses. At the heart of Dobychin’s stories are moments of fragile human interaction that underlie trivial dialogues and actions in banal everyday existence. The stories let the reader experience the sudden and unexpected human connections that the characters encounter in their everyday impressions. The contrasts and plurality of human perspectives thus perceived evoke a potential interaction beyond societal roles. These brief encounters are presented as something precarious in a Soviet society striving towards a single true ideology. Such a reading suggests that Dobychin is not so much a deliberately enigmatic author as a writer who aspires to express in words that which is profoundly wordless: the encounters between people outside of the ideological categories and discourses of their language.

    Läsning på olika nivåer: Läsguidesfrågornas påverkan på elevers läsförståelse och lässtrategier2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Ett vanligt sätt att arbeta med läsförståelse i skolan är att låta elever läsa en lärobokstext och svara på frågor om texten. I denna uppsats undersöker jag hur sådana läsguidesfrågor som ska fungera som stöd för läsförståelsen kan påverka elevernas läsförståelse och lässtrategier. Detta undersöker jag genom ett test där en högstadieklass får läsa en lärobokstext i historia från det digitala läromedlet Clio Online. Hälften av klassen får i samband med läsningen svara på textkontrollerande läsguidesfrågor, medan andra hälften får svara på inferensfrågor. Därefter får alla elever svara på enkätfrågor om textens svårighetsgrad och sina strategival under uppgiften samt kontrollfrågor som testar deras läsförståelse.

    Resultatet visar att eleverna som besvarar inferensfrågor ägnar längre tid åt uppgiften att läsa texten och besvara frågorna. Dessa elever visar en starkare metakognitiv medvetenhet, genom att färre av dessa elever överskattar sin egen förståelse av texten. Denna elevgrupp får också ett bättre totalresultat på kontrollfrågorna som testar deras läsförståelse. Detta indikerar att inferensfrågorna tycks styra eleverna till en djupare läsning och en bättre läsförståelse.

    Samtidigt får dock eleverna som besvarar textkontrollerande läsguidesfrågor ett bättre resultat på den kontrollfråga som efterfrågar en helhetsförståelse av texten. Fler i denna grupp anger dessutom som lässtrategi att de läste igenom hela texten snarare än att leta efter svaren i texten, vilket bör leda till en djupare läsning. Detta resultat verkar till viss del orsakas av att några av eleverna som får inferensfrågor tycks sakna antingen motivation eller förmåga att besvara dessa, och därmed inte blir hjälpta av dem i sin läsning. Resultatet kan också förklaras med att läsguidesfrågorna eleverna får vid ett tillfälle inte är det enda som påverkar deras läsning, utan de påverkas också av andra faktorer såsom motivation eller en vana vid vissa lässtrategier. Även elever som får frågor som leder dem mot en ytlig läsning kan alltså läsa på en djupare nivå, och tvärtom.

    Denna undersöknings begränsade omfattning gör att det inte går att dra några säkra slutsatser utifrån resultatet. Den försiktiga slutsats som kan dras är att för svåra inferensfrågor för eleven inte tycks hjälpa läsförståelsen, medan inferensfrågor på en lagom nivå tycks kunna leda till en djupare läsförståelse än textkontrollerande frågor.

    Bug Report: A Study of Semantic Change during the Digital Revolution2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Semantic change is a phenomenon that has been subject to a lot of research during the past few decades. However, a large part of the existing research has been conducted with the goal of finding causes of change or creating typologies in order to classify different types of changes. The present study has been conducted with the aim to examine how a specific extra-linguistic factor has affected a select few words. The extra-linguistic factor that is the focal point of this study is the rapid technological change during what is known as the digital revolution. This essay explores how the digital revolution has affected the uses of four words: bug, web, mouse,and cloud. The first part of this study was a collocational analysis of these four words. The results of the collocational analysis indicated that changes occurred during certain time periods. A closer context analysis was performed for each of the words on the time period during which a semantic change was suspected to occur. The findings of this essay are that all the examined words have gotten new technological meanings during the past 70 years, thus exhibiting semantic widening. All four words are currently polysemous words. Replacive change, meaning a change in the primary meaning of a word, is only apparent in web. The remaining words keep their primary senses throughout the examined period, and the new senses are added as periphery senses. The trends in the usage of these words indicate that it is possible that more of them will undergo replacive change, however, it is too early to tell.

    Le passé composé et le mode d’action chez des locuteurs du français L2 et L1: Une étude des apprenants lycéen et débutant de l’université du français L2 et des locuteurs du français L1 du corpus InterFra2022Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The present study aims to research whether a development may be seen in the use of the passécomposé of L1 Swedish secondary school students and L1 Swedish university beginners learningFrench, the prevalence of the passé composé in their and a control group’s productions and whetherthe results confirm the aspectual hypothesis of Andersen (1991), which predicts that the perfective willdevelop first with telic verbs and then with atelic verbs. The hypotheses included that a developmentwould be seen, that the control group would have the highest frequency followed by the secondaryschool students and the beginners and that the latter groups would have a higher frequency of telicverbs in the passé composé than atelic verbs. The study confirmed the first and second hypotheses anddid not find the third hypothesis confirmed. The study had difficulty confirming the aspectualhypothesis of Andersen (1991). It was suggested that the dynamic trait may be a better predictor of thechoice of the passé composé than the telic trait, in accordance with Bergström’s (1997) findings.

    "I know that women don't like me!" Presuppositions in therapeutic discourse2009In: Journal of Pragmatics, ISSN 0378-2166, E-ISSN 1879-1387, Vol. 41, no 4, p. 721-737Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the biggest problems concerning presuppositions has been correctly dealing with their sensitivity to the context, i.e. why inferences triggered by certain expressions do not project out in all linguistic environments, even though the triggering words preserve their semantic content in different settings. The answer which is of particular interest here goes along with the principles of the binding theory of presuppositions developed by van der Sandt (1992). According to this theory, presuppositions behave asanaphors and can be resolved in the same way at the level of discourse representation.

    This article contributes to a very scarce body of empirical work on presuppositions, as it scrutinizes examples of presuppositions that act like discourse anaphors in the context of three psychotherapeutic sessions. Such sessions can be analyzed in the same way as ordinary spoken discourse; however, the initial premise that the usage of presuppositions differs in this genre in comparison to daily interaction is confirmed. The results of both quantitative and qualitative analysis indicate that presuppositions are used for different strategic reasons in the two genres compared, which influences the way they should be interpreted and also their frequency.

    ­­Educación especial en la práctica: Adaptaciones de la enseñanza de español como lengua extranjera2024Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [es]

    El propósito de la tesina ha sido investigar el enfoque hacia la atención a las necesidades individuales en la enseñanza del español como lengua extranjera en la escuela sueca. La teoría que se emplea en el estudio se basa en dos perspectivas dominantes en el discurso de la educación especial para identificar la orientación pedagógica que se presenta en la enseñanza actual. El instrumento para recoger los datos es una encuesta con una orientación cualitativa y preguntas sobre el enfoque y la actitud hacia las adaptaciones a las necesidades individuales en la clase. Los participantes del estudio son cinco profesores de español como lengua extranjera y el estudio pretende identificar qué métodos específicos utilizan los profesores, así como si su actitud y el conocimiento sobre las necesidades individuales del alumno afectan el proceso de la enseñanza-aprendizaje. También se investiga cómo los profesores realizan la participación pedagógica a través de su enseñanza. Los resultados muestran que los profesores tienen varias estrategias para adaptar la enseñanza como: la modificación del material de clase, instrucciones precisas de las tareas, un diálogo individual con los alumnos y adaptaciones específicas de las actividades pedagógicas. El esfuerzo por adaptar el entorno educativo en lugar de atribuir las dificultades a deficiencias individuales indica que la mayoría de los profesores adoptan un enfoque relacional hacia los alumnos. Según las respuestas de los profesores, se observa también que la actitud propia del profesor es un factor más determinante para el diseño pedagógico que el contenido del Currículo sueco. Se ha podido identificar que los profesores en la mayoría de los casos adaptan la enseñanza en función de las necesidades de los alumnos pero se requieren estudios más profundos de los efectos de la enseñanza adaptada para establecer la eficacia de los enfoques utilizados.

    Latviešu valodas vēsturiskās vārdnīcas (16.–17. gs.) projekts: problēmas un risinājumi [Historical Dictionary of the Latvian Language (16-17th cc.): Issues and Solutions]2012In: Apvienotais Pasaules latviešu zinātnieku III kongress un Letonikas IV kongress „Zinātne, sabiedrība un nacionālā identitāte”: Valodniecības raksti, Riga: Latvijas Universitātes Latviešu valodas institūts , 2012, p. 196-209Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the historical dictionary project is to create a full-type corpus-based dictionary of the early written Latvian texts. The main tasks cover the whole scope of the dictionary making process: to develop a necessary methodology, to write sample entries covering all POS, to make an electronic version of the entries; a further task is to find or to create a lexicographer’s workbench.

    Till now ca 500 entries have been compiled (~ 300 appellatives and ~ 200 proper names) and guidelines on dictionary entry writing have been set.

    The present report deals with issues concerning corpus compilation, finding spelling variants of the headword, detecting the meaning for lexemes with a small and a large number of occurrences. Special emphasis is put on the description of the origin of the lexeme, detecting lexical, derivational and semantic loans (according to Betz 1959 terminology Lehnwörter; Lehnbildungen; Lehnbedeutungen). Loans could be found among collocations and idioms, as well as in the syntax (German Lehnwendungen; Lehnsyntax. As the early sources are mainly religious texts, the special interest lies in religious discourse analysis.

    The Dictionary is the first and for the moment the only known corpus-based dictionary in Latvia. The input data is the Corpus of the Early Latvian Texts ‘SENIE’. The Corpus includes 43 full-text sources with almost 965, 000 tokens covering the 16–18th c.

    All main sources of the 16th c. are represented in the Corpus, but more data could be explored: 1) The Lord’s Prayer published in different collections; 2) manuscript data (songs, separate sentences). The huge quantity of 17th c. data should be added to the Corpus, e.g., The Old Testament; dictionaries, both printed and manuscripts; grammars; texts of the late 17 th c. and manuscripts (both ecclesiastic and clerical texts).

    One of the issues of corpus development is the unavailability of the early sources in Latvian libraries. Thus, international co-operation should be established in order to raise awareness of the Latvian texts kept in foreign collections and, if possible, to digitalize them.

    The early texts are rich in spelling variants which puzzle lexicographers, see five versions of  the root māja ‘house’ written as follows: mahj-, mahy-, mai-, maj- and may-. In order to facilitate finding all the occurrences of the head word, a time-consuming solution is to rewrite all the texts in standardized form or to use some software to detect all the spelling variants. Such a solution is found for the Old English texts (software VARD — Variant Detector and the adoption of this practice is worth considering.

    In detecting the meaning of a lexeme, problems are caused by words with one or two occurrences in the Corpus and those with several thousand occurrences. By means of the concordance program one is able to process words with up to 2,000 occurrences. See the entry pasaule ‘world’ (1,528 occur at the moment of writing this entry) where not only word meanings with the first and the last citation are listed, but also a number of collocations are presented. While processing a headword with a large number of occurrences (e.g., the conjunction ka ‘that’ with >16,000 occurrences or Dievs ‘God’ > 11,000 occur.) the compilers decided to analyze only two sources per century in detail.

    If only one occurrence is met in the Corpus, additional sources should be examined to determine the meaning: other 17–18th c. dictionaries, dictionaries of different vernaculars, studies in history and botany, the Mülenbach-Endzelin dictionary, Grimm’s Das Deutsche Wörterbuch, in some cases (delete the) Luther’s Bible is consulted (e.g. pakaļazobi — Luther’s Backenzähne ‘molars’).

    The on-going Dictionary supplies new data for studies of the origin of Latvian words, it detects more precisely the time of the lexeme’s entry into the written language which in most cases is identical to the time of the word’s origin in general.

    The compilers of the Dictionary explore the former studies of semantic and lexical loans and only some new explanations or previously unrecognized lexemes are expected to be found. Derivational loans are a challenge for researchers, and new examples are found in corpus analysis, e.g., next to kapsēta ‘graveyard’ we can find the lexeme baznīcsēta ‘churchyard’, which is a derivational loan from Middle Low German kerkhof. In contemporary German Kirchhof is encountered, the same as Swedish kyrkogård.

    Early Latvian texts are rich in derivations and compounds the origins of which are still to be clarified. Hopefully, work with corpus, careful text analysis and comparison to possible source texts can supply new data for a historical dictionary and studies of the early religious lexis.

    Gilbertus Universalis: Glossa ordinaria in Lamentationes Ieremie prophete. Prothemata et Liber I.: A Critical Edition with an Introduction and a Translation2005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Glossa ordinaria on the Bible stands as one of the prime achievements of the period in western intellectual history known as the Renaissance of the twelfth century. In spite of the great number of still extant manuscripts very little is known about the circumstances around its composition. This state of affairs is partly explained by the lack of modern and critical editions of the books of the Glossa ordinaria.

    The present work is the first critical edition of the Glossa ordinaria on the Book of Lamentations, and consists of the forewords, or prothemata, and the first book (of five) of this text, which was compiled early in the twelfth century by the theologian and Ciceronian rhetorician Gilbert the Universal (†1134), schoolmaster at Auxerre and subsequently Bishop of London.

    The introduction includes a background sketch of the environment in which the Glossa ordinaria was conceived – the school of Laon – with a short biography of Gilbert the Universal, as well as a study of the sources to this particular part of the Gloss, chief among them the ninth-century commentary of Paschasius Radbertus. It is shown that Gilbert’s major improvement to his source, apart from drastically rewriting it, consists of the introduction of Ciceronian rhetorical loci to the verses of Lamentations. The introduction furthermore provides the reader with an analysis of the manuscript tradition of the early twelfth century and a selective analysis of the later manuscript tradition (some 86 manuscripts have so far been traced). One of the conclusions reached is that the Gloss on Lamentations exists in two textual recensions, the one original, the other a later redaction made once the Gloss had become a success and preserved in nearly all the later manuscripts. The manuscripts of the first recension, which is the one edited in the present work, may be organised into a stemma codicum consisting of two major families originating in a single archetype. It is possible to reconstruct this archetype on the basis of the five oldest manuscripts. An English translation of the edited text is included, as well as a ‘semi-critical’ edition of the text of the second recension.

    An important part of the present work consists of an effort to combine the sophisticated mise-en-page of the glossed manuscripts with the standards of presentation to be expected of a modern critical edition.

    Inte ett dugg eller bara nästan inte: en korpusanalys av kollokationer med partikeln vůbec i tjeckiskan2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här undersökningen studeras hur den tjeckiska partikeln vůbec används i kollokationer där den ursprungliga absoluta betydelsen begränsas. De ord som undersökts i kombination med vůbec är skoro, téměř, málem, takřka och bezmála, som alla kan översättas med ’nästan’. Studien har gjorts i två subkorpusar till den tjeckiska nationalkorpusen, SYN 2015 och ORAL v1, och har inom tidsramen 1990–2014 undersökt frekvensen av de angivna kollokationerna och eventuella tendenser till ökning eller minskning i användningen. Den första korpusen, SYN, omfattar skriven tjeckiska och den andra, ORAL, tjeckiskt talspråk. Undersökningen bygger på relativa frekvenser av förekomster vilket möjliggjort jämförelser mellan de båda korpusarna, och därmed mellan skriven och talad tjeckiska.

     

    Studien visar att vůbec är ett vanligt förekommande ord i tjeckiskt språkbruk och i synnerhet i det talade språket. Den totala användningen av vůbec separat är ungefär tre gånger större i talspråket än i skriftspråket. Det omvända gäller för de ordkombinationer som har betydelsen ’nästan inte alls’. De är i stället mer frekventa i skriftspråket. Tendenser till ökning eller minskning har med det valda underlaget inte kunnat påvisas.

    Teachers' use of English in teaching Swedish as a foreign language2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines how frequently and in what situations English is used by Swedish as tuition for immigrants (SFI) teachers in Swedish-as-foreign-language (SFL) teaching. Furthermore, it examines the teachers’ reason for and views on the use of English in the SFL classroom. The data consists of classroom observation of two teachers’ classes in four introductory SFL courses as well as teacher interviews. The results revealed that the teachers use English frequently in their classroom for similar reasons. Moreover, the teachers consider that English should be used in the SFL classrooms because it is a meaningful tool that facilitates SFL teaching.

    Idioms, the black sheep of L2.2023Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Most people these days are used to retrieving information from a screen, whether from a computer, smartphone or tv. This is also true for most students, even if the odd book is used, a computer or laptop are the main tools within education at the moment. This paper expands on a study where the students were taught idioms with the help of illustrations and whether the students also retained that information better than students that did not use illustrations. Building on that study I used video as the main source of teaching idioms to students, I performed a pre-test and two post-tests in order to test the students´ memory. Most students retained the information and in fact even more students seem to remember certain idioms after two weeks, which was when the last post-test was taken. The video source material not only offers an explanation, it also provides a short video clip from a popular tv-show or movie where the idiom is used, giving the students more context of that idiom. By providing a lesson plan divided into four parts, this study showed that the students retained the information in a most admirable manner, and that the lesson plan can be adapted for any subject matter. The four parts consisted of firstly presenting the video source and letting the students work alone, the second part was collaboration with your deskmate, thirdly expanding the collaboration into a group activity and lastly a game for the entire class. By following these steps the students were given at least four different ways to absorb the information, it also democratises teaching since all the students get the same treatment, regardless of which part they actually learn from.

    They say that learning never stops. The teachers at the sign language interpreter program at Stockholm university say that having completed the program is not the same as being fully learned. In this study I have compared three students, from the bachelor’s program in sign language and interpreting, who are attending the last semester, as well as three experienced interpreters, with an average of 12,5 years of experience, in their production of constructed action (CA) and constructed dialogue (CD) when interpreting a children’s book. The results show no difference between the groups when looking at the production of CA and CD. Thus, since the participant groups are small, a generalization that applies to the whole field of interpreters cannot be made. This also resulted in that I could not make any assumptions about how any progress is made after one has finished their education and has some experience working as an interpreter.
