    El uso de apéndices conversacionales en hablantes nativos y no nativos de español chileno2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [es]

    El tema del presente trabajo es el uso de los apéndices conversacionales en el lenguaje hablado. Se trata de las palabras o frases con los cuales el hablante muestra su juicio de ”acierto formulativo”, atenuando lo que acaba de enunciar. La idea principal ha sido averiguar cómo un hablante de una segunda lengua (L2) hace uso de los apéndices en el habla espontánea, en comparación con un nativo. El grupo de estudio está formado por informantes suecos que viven en Chile y poseen un nivel alto de español L2. Se hace una comparación con dos grupos de control: uno, el principal, consiste en chilenos con español como lengua materna (L1). Lo que se pretende comprobar es si el uso de los nativos y no nativos coincide en cuanto a los tipos de apéndice preferidos y la frecuencia de ellos, y también con respecto a los contextos en los cuales aparecen. El segundo grupo de control está formado por suecohablantes que han sido entrevistados en sueco. Ellos son incluidos para poder detectar posibles transferencias de la L1 en el grupo de estudio. Los resultados indican que hay bastante variación individual, pero en general ambos grupos de suecos prefieren los apéndices paratácticos, mientras que los chilenos tienden a elegir los apéndices construidos con el verbo decir. Otro ejemplo de transferencia del sueco se ha observado en una expresión no idiomática en el grupo de estudio. En lo que toca a la frecuencia general, el grupo de estudio se parece en gran medida a los chilenos, mientras que los suecohablantes producen más del doble de los apéndices. Respecto a los contextos, son sobre todo los hablantes nativos, de español o de sueco, los que utilizan los apéndices en relación con reformulaciones, mientras que las enumeraciones predominan en el grupo de estudio.

    Riqueza léxica y fluidez: Un estudio comparativo entre usuarios avanzados de castellano y hablantes nativos2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [es]

    El objetivo de este estudio es investigar en qué medida hay concordancia entre hab-lantes avanzados de castellano y hablantes nativos, en cuanto a la riqueza léxica y la fluidez en el lenguaje hablado. En lo que toca a la riqueza léxica son analizados los tipos y los lemas, además de las clases abiertas. Los elementos investigados de fluidez son la velocidad de habla, los macrosintagmas y las autorregulaciones. El material consiste en las transcripciones de doce narraciones, de seis suecos y de seis chilenos, donde cada uno relata un cuento, partiendo de un libro de dibujos.

    Los resultados muestran que se concuerdan los dos grupos en cuanto a la riqueza léxica, pero hay más diferencias con respecto a la fluidez. Sin embargo, no hay ningún parámetro donde no se puede encontrar por lo menos un hablante no nativo y cuyo resultado coincida con el uso de nativos. Además consta que dos de los in-formantes no nativos presentan resultados los cuales en gran medida coinciden con los nativos. Más concretamente es así en cada parámetro analizado, con una sola exepción en ambos casos.

    A REPERCUSSÃO DAS INICIATIVAS DO GOVERNO BRASILEIRO PARA A PROTECÇÃO DA AMAZÓNIA NA IMPRENSA SUECA ONLINE DURANTE O GOVERNO DE LULA2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Environmental issues are receiving more and more media exposure today than ever before. What was first a healthy interest amongst people, has led to serious concerns when one takes into account the repercussions that the greenhouse effect is having on the environment. The increased environmental awareness that now exists amongst an ever growing section of the world’s population, has resulted in politicians having to start to take action as there is now a political will to do so. Brazil has the largest mass of tropical rainforest in the world and its protection is of interest to the Brazilian government, the citizens of Brazil and to the inhabitants of the world. A series of legal action measures have been initiated by the Brazilian government to preserve the wellbeing of the rainforest.

    This thesis examines how and what the Swedish online news providers have reported these measures during the Lula period of administration. The objective of this thesis is to understand how the Brazilian government’s measures have been perceived by the Swedish online news providers and thus by the reading population. Specifically, the focus is on measures taken by the Brazilian government with regards to Brazilian environmental problems in the Amazon rainforest, Brazilian ecological policy in the Amazonia and how all of this in turn leads to better protection of the Amazon rainforest.

    The data obtained supports the hypothesis that out of all the Brazilian related articles published by the Swedish online news providers, only a small percentage of the total amount of articles are relating to environmental issues in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest and/or the Brazilian environmental politics to protect the Amazon rainforest.

    The advanced learner variety: ten years later2009In: The advanced learner variety: the case of French / [ed] Emmanuelle Labeau and Florence Myles, Oxford ; Berlin ; New York: Peter Lang , 2009, p. 11-40Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The goals of Chapter 1 (‘The advanced learner variety: 10 years later’, by IngeBartning) are to describe the advanced learner variety from the end-stateperspective and towards the end-state as a developmental perspective where theadvanced variety is identified with morpho-syntactic features along a six-stageacquisitional continuum (Bartning & Schlyter 2004) as well as to present astate-of-the-art account of the research carried out since 1997. Themorpho-syntactic features include verbal morphology, negation, object clitics,gender marking, and subordination. The advanced stage is described based onthree main criteria: TAM (tense, aspect, modality), subject-verb agreement, andthe distinction between finite and non-finite forms. This chapter alsointroduces preliminary findings from corpus data (Swedish learners living inParis), which illustrate verb and gender agreement errors produced by highlyproficient learners.

    Resources and obstacles in very advanced L2 French:  formulaic language, information structure and morphosyntax2009In: EUROSLA Yearbook, ISSN 1568-1491, E-ISSN 1569-9749, Vol. 9, p. 185-211Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study builds on the proposition that there are six developmental stages for spoken L2 French, based on morpho-syntactic criteria (Bartning and Schlyter 2004). In order to investigate developmental stages 'beyond stage 6', oral productions of several groups of advanced learners/users and native speakers are analyzed in terms of resources and obstacles. Among the resources, we investigate expected late features such as formulaic language and elaboration of information structure (Forsberg 2008; Hancock 2007). Morpho-syntactic deviances (MSDs), i.e. obstacles are also investigated. MSDs are expected to be almost absent beyond stage 6 (von Stutterheim 2003). Surprisingly, they continue to be present even at these very high levels. The results also show that formulaic language and information structure are promising measures of high levels, although the latter did not yield significant differences compared to lower stages. The study concludes with the proposal of a transitional stage with L2 users called functional bilinguals, which would constitute a stage between the advanced learner and the near-native speaker.

    The functions of a high-frequency collocation in native and learner discourse: the case of French c’est and Swedish det är2007In: International Review of Applied Linguistics in Language Teaching, ISSN 0019-042X, E-ISSN 1613-4141, Vol. 45, no 1, p. 1-43Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This cross-linguistic study investigates the functionality and use of one particular linguistic collocation in each of two languages, viz. the French c'est and the Swedish det är, both meaning ‘it is’. The data are drawn from conversational speech production by adult native speakers and second language learners. The investigation shows that these collocations are highly polyfunctional as components in different grammatical constructions, that they play a significant role as a formula in the planning and execution of utterances and that they show a characteristic distribution of frequency of use and a characteristic profile of development in learner speech. A usage-based view of how language develops in individuals is adopted in the analysis of these findings, showing that these various properties are connected to each other and that they have an important bearing on the development of learners' interlanguages.

    Gender Effects on First Language Acquisition2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is a study concerning gender effects on first language acquisition, focused on vocabulary growth across the age range 22-34 months, and language production at 34 months. It is suggested that at 22 months girls have a more extensive vocabulary than boys due to capacity differences; however, at 34 months such a pattern cannot be found. Furthermore it is suggested that gender affects language production in the sense that male and female speakers will prefer to produce words that are associated with their culture’s definition of masculinity and femininity. The study on vocabulary growth is based on the assumption that TTR (type/token ratio) reflects vocabulary size and it proves that, at 22 months, girls have a more extensive vocabulary than boys; however, at 34 months such a pattern is less obvious, if any conclusion can be drawn it is that boys have a slightly larger vocabulary than girls. The study on language production is focused on verb production and it shows that boys and girls prefer verbs that are associated with common stereotypes of masculinity and femininity.

    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.

    Abstract [en]

    The article presents the first results of a mostly qualitatively based empirical study on cultural learning in asynchronous online discussions. These discussions were part of the online phases of a culture-based university seminar on the culture of the German-speaking countries. Starting with given student tasks this presentation of the results focusses on how the students deal in discussion with the meaning of historical events that later acquired the status of foundational myths. Such culturally based processes within a classroom discussion are described. It is, for example, shown how through the switching of perspectives suggested by the prescribed tasks, patterns of interpretation based on the students’ own cultures are used or generalizations occur. In the conclusion, implications of these results for teaching practice are discussed.

    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.

    Gammalt möter nytt: En analys av ålderspensionärers digitala skriftpraktiker2014In: Vernacular Literacies: Past, Present and Future / [ed] Ann-Catrine Edlund, Lars-Erik Edlund, Susanne Haugen, Umeå: Umeå University, Royal Skyttean Society , 2014, p. 59-75Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a study of four elderly people’s use of computers in vernacular literacy practices (Heath 1999:200; Barton 2007:35–37). Two men and two women from different social and professional backgrounds have participated in the study and the data analyzed consist of participant logs and recorded interviews. The aim is to identify and describe what the participants are doing with their computers. Questions discussed are how participation in digital literacy practices may be connected to age and social situation and what importance experiences from earlier non-digital literacy practices have for elderly people’s use of computers today. Results are, inter alia, that the participants use digital and non-digital tools simultaneously in their vernacular literacy practices, that long-time practices have taken new forms due to digitalization and that new practices have emerged due to digitalization. The study shows examples of how literacy is in constant change and how modern technology add new possibilities to social practices (Barton 2007:50). Users earlier experiences together with their new needs and wishes, due to technology, are constantly reshaping literacy practices.

    Patient participation and learning in medical consultations about congenital heart defects2019In: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 14, no 7, article id e0220136Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, patient activity in 8 audio recorded specialist consultations on fetal cardiology is investigated in order to explore how, why and when patients tend to participate in encounters in which the doctor dominates the interaction. The overall question is: How can the participation of patients in the consultations be connected to the development of higher levels of health literacy, i.e. to interactive literacy and to critical literacy? Patient participation is here understood as interactive action and is analyzed in terms of different interactive moves, which are related to different recurring topics. Despite the highly standardized format of the consultations, there is a large variation between the patients’ participation: between 0.7 and 2.8 moves per minute. The patients participate most during the topics ‘Prevalence’ and ‘Consultations’ and least during the topic ‘The normal heart’. Although most of the patients' moves are responses to what the doctor says, they remarkably often pose questions and use so called rejoinders. By posing questions, they take control of the information flow and sometimes even change the topics. By using rejoinders, they analyze the problems involved in the discussion e.g. by asking for clarifications or confirmation. Patients with a low over-all participation rate also use fewer moves that indicate higher literacy levels. The qualitative analysis problematizes the idea of a simple scale from basic literacy to critical literacy. Moves that indicate basic literacy skills are interactively important for the learning activity, led by the doctor. However, patients who mainly support the doctor’s initiatives don’t take the opportunity to influence the flow of information in ways that might favor their health literacy development.

    Futuro de presente: Expressões usadas para exprimir o futuro na língua portuguesa europeia2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [pt]

    O objectivo deste trabalho é, verificar a frequências respectivas das cinco expressões usadas actualmente para exprimir o futuro em textos jornalís-ticos portugueses.

    A hipótese do trabalho baseia-se na concepção que existem preferên-cias na escolha das diferentes expressões do futuro e que estas preferên-cias se reflectem nos textos jornalísticos quotidianos, sendo favorecida a perífrase “ir” presente+infinitivo do verbo principal.

    O estudo é conduzido sobre um “corpus” constituído por um conjunto de exemplos, (1243) tirados de dez jornais portugueses.

    O método de realização consiste em, sistematicamente, percorrer os dez jornais, página a página, analisando os textos para seleccionar as expressões de futuro adequadas para nosso trabalho. A pesquisa é, por-tanto, quantitativa e sincrónica.

    O resultado da pesquisa mostra, que o “futuro simples”com os seus 55%, é a expressão que desempenha a maior função e prevalecendo sobre as três perífrases juntas, cuja representação se limita aos 37%.

    A perífrase “ir”presente+infinitivo do verbo principal é usada em 31% dos casos, verificando-se, contudo, uma variação do seu uso entre os diferentes jornais.

    No que diz respeito à perífrase “haver de”+ infinitivo, o seu uso é extremamente restrito, limitando-se a cinco ocorrências.

    A outra perífrase “ir” conjugado no futuro simples+verbo principal, que quase não existe na língua falada, aparece no nosso material com uma frequência de 65 vezes ou seja, aproximadamente 5%.

    Quanto ao “presente” usado com valor de futuro, o ocorre 107 vezes correspondendo a 9%. Este modo de exprimir o futuro, além de ser utili-zado nos artigos contendo algumas entrevistas, ocorre quase exclusiva-mente nas notícias cuja intenção é informar um público local ou regional sobre eventos previsíveis.

    Butamalón, el gran levantamiento: Las Raíces de un Conflicto2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [es]

    El propósito de este trabajo es dar a conocer las características generales de la estructura en la nueva novela histórica, género que presenta la novela Butamalón de Eduardo Labarca. Asimismo, queremos saber si la existencia de los discursos que en ella aparecen han contribuido a generar percepciones prejuiciosas que hayan alterado las relaciones entre españoles y mapuches y, luego entre chilenos y mapuches y si en la actualidad, los personajes de la novela tienen alguna validez y juegan algún rol en el conflicto identitario del mestizaje.Sostenemos en la hipótesis que los personajes de Butamalón –que en mapudungun significa gran levantamiento- equivaldrían a una homologación cultural y social de la sociedad que fundaron los conquistadores, la cual alteró para siempre las relaciones entre éstos y los indígenas. Esto -a su vez- tendría repercusiones y marcaría definitivamente, el interactuar de chilenos y mapuches.Así nos detendremos a analizar los discursos que componen la obra, siendo éstos dos: la fábula histórica que relata los hechos históricos documentados de la batalla de Curalaba en 1598, cuando los mapuche se rebelan en contra de las fuerzas invasoras de España y, luego, tenemos la fábula ficcional, donde los personajes se desenvuelven en el Chile de la transición democrática y las vicisitudes que han vivido éstos.Empezaremos identificando los discursos de los personajes novelescos, los ejemplificaremos aplicándoles las teorías literarias de la narración, de la nueva novela histórica y del discurso socio-cultural basándonos en las teorías del discurso racista de Teun Van Dijk. Luego intentaremos acercarnos a una interpretación social y cultural del fenómeno que representa la nueva novela histórica y el discurso.

    La guerra contra las mujeres: El caso del feminicidio en Guatemala2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [es]

    En 2009 se encontraron 708 mujeres asesinadas en Guatemala, un número que se ha incrementado drásticamente en los últimos años. Una gran parte de estos asesinatos son brutales y presentan signos de violencia sexual y tortura, lo cual señala una conexión específica de violencia de género. El término feminicidio tiene su origen en el carácter de estos crímenes, el asesinato de mujeres por el hecho de ser mujeres y es la forma más extrema de la violencia de género contra la mujer. La impunidad rodea estos casos de feminicidio y muchas mujeres critican al Estado por no poder garantizar la seguridad y los derechos de las mujeres. El propósito de este estudio es obtener una comprensión más amplia del caso del feminicidio y su aumento en Guatemala después de la guerra civil y la firma de los Acuerdos de Paz en 1996. Se emplea un método cualitativo y se pregunta cuál es la situación actual de las mujeres en lo referente a la violencia de género y cómo es que el feminicidio puede surgir y desarrollarse en un país que se considera democrático. Mediante la aplicación de una perspectiva feminista y de teorías estructurales sobre la violencia contra la mujer, se observa que la concurrencia de estructuras patriarcales muy fuertes, un deficiente proceso de reconciliación después de la guerra civil y la exclusión de las mujeres en el proceso de paz, y sobre todo la falta de una perspectiva de género dentro de las instituciones estatales, crea un contexto en donde el feminicidio puede ser aceptado y donde también puede desarrollarse.

    Watching video or studying?: An investigation of the extramural activities and Japanese language proficiency of foreign language learners of Japanese2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examined the extramural activities, that is, what a language learner does with the target language outside of class time, in Japanese of adult beginner level foreign language learners of Japanese studying at Stockholm University, Sweden, and how these activities relate to Japanese language proficiency. The study looked at both extramural activities and foreign language proficiency from a holistic and quantitative perspective. The participants' extramural activities were measured through self-reported data in a questionnaire, and several measures; a cloze test, earlier grades, and self-evaluations; were triangulated and used to provide an adequate measure of general Japanese language proficiency.

       The results indicate that extramural activities which provide a foreign language learner with enough time for thorough processing of input and support through the usage of several cooperating modalities seem to have a positive effect on general foreign language acquisition.

    Läs- och skrivundervisning på modersmålet med stöttning av multimodala verktyg inom sfi2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 60 credits / 90 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I uppsatsen undersöks metoder för läs- och skrivundervisningen inom sfi med utgångspunkt från modersmålet dari och multimodala verktyg. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka de pedagogiska metoder som används vid läs- och skrivundervisningen på modersmålet dari inom sfi samt att se vilka multimodala verktyg som kan ges som stöttning vid läs- och skrivundervisningen för elever som ännu inte är litterata. Frågeställningarna var: Hur undervisar man i läs- och skrivundervisningen på modersmålet dari? Vilka didaktiska principer används tillsammans med multimodala verktyg? Undersökningen är en kvalitativ undersökning med intervjuer och observationer. Resultatet beskriver alfabetiseringsundervisning i en sfi-verksamhet som utförs på modersmålet dari med multimodala verktyg som stöd. Luke och Freebodys modell kan ligga till grund för undervisningen för vuxna (Freebody, 1992). Modellen belyser fyra centrala färdigheter: avkodning, meningsskapande, textanvändning samt kritiskt användande. En annan teori som genomsyrar synen på språkinlärning i uppsatsen är teorin om kognitiv inlärning som arbetades fram av den ryska psykologen Lev Vygoskij angående språk, tänkande och lärande (Vygotskij, 2001). Pauline Gibbons forskning har påverkat de teoretiska utgångspunkterna eftersom lärande av ett andraspråk sker i interaktion med andra (Gibbons, 2013).

    Järnvägsstationer i Litauen 1861-2011: Namngivare, namnbyten och språkbyten genom 150 år2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.

    Skrivsamarbete i högre utbildning: Tre studenters skribentprofiler i kollaborativa skrivargrupper2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overarching aim of this thesis is to probe more deeply into how col­laborative writing can help to socialise students in a writing practice. More specifically, the thesis deals with lab report writing and the relationship of three students with different backgrounds to the educational practices of a university department. The three students differ in language background, previous higher education and vocational experience. The material comprises recordings of student discussions while writing lab reports in a group. The students and their lab report writing in different group con­stellations has been followed longitudi­nally for between two to four semesters. In addition the development of the lab reports over time has been studied, as well as teachers’ comments on them. Student acquisition of the genre is linked to internal textual criteria (textual aspects) and to extratextual criteria in the educational context.

    In view of the study’s focus on group collaboration a socio-cultural per­spective has been adopted as a frame. A model developed by Storch (2002) based on Vygotsky’s role relationships between expert and novice is used to shed light on how the students resolve problems related to the writing task through group discussions.

    The results show that the students’ backgrounds play a role in the creation of their profiles in the collaborative writing groups. The student with a second-language background often seeks support, not least where linguistic correctness is concerned, and cites what teachers say as arguments. The student with prior experience of academic writing appears to be a seasoned writer, for instance by daring to deviate from instructions and teachers’ directives. The third student uses his professional experience of writing lab reports in discussions to gain acceptance for his ideas.
