    När det privata blir offentligt: Referens till icke-närvarande familjemedlemmar i servicesamtal2019In: Svenskans beskrivning 36: Förhandlingar vid trettiosjätte sammankomsten, Uppsala 25–27 oktober 2017 / [ed] Marco Bianchi, David Håkansson, Björn Melander, Linda Pfister, Maria Westman, Carin Östman, Uppsala: Uppsala universitet, 2019, p. 207-218Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vid teaterkassor och bokningscentraler utspelar sig dagligen en mängd korta möten mellan kund och personal. Kunden kommer för att hämta eller köpa biljetter och det är personalens uppgift att försöka uppfylla önskemålen. Dessa institutionella samtal är målinriktade, effektiva och förs vanligen mellan personer som inte känner varandra. Samtalen följer en typisk struktur: kunden framställer sitt ärende, personalen genomför det, kunden betalar och parterna tar avsked. Ofta sker allt detta inom loppet av ett par, tre minuter. Mot den bakgrunden kan det verka osannolikt att deltagarna skulle ta upp ämnen av privat karaktär, till exempel tala om familjemedlemmar, men i vårt arbete med 1 000 servicesamtal vid biljettkassor runtom i Sverige och Svenskfinland har vi noterat att det trots allt förekommer. Syftet med föreliggande artikel är att undersöka referens till icke-närvarande familjemedlemmar i servicesamtal. Först ger vi en bakgrund till forskning om personreferens och beskriver de teoretiska utgångspunkterna för studien. Därefter redogör vi för material och metod innan vi presenterar våra resultat och diskuterar dem.

    Introductions at international academic conferences: Address and naming in three national varieties of English2019In: It’s not all about you: New perspectives on address research / [ed] Bettina Kluge, María Irene Moyna, Amsterdam: John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2019, p. 376-395Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter investigates preferred introduction routines in first encounters in the context of international academic conferences where English is used as the conference language. We focus on reported use of first and last names as well as titles in introductions in American, Australian and British English based on a large-scale survey of reported introduction in three scenarios: introduction of self, of others and expected introduction of self by others. Drawing on quantitative and qualitative data the results demonstrate that while use of first and last name is the unmarked choice, there is also significant variation among speakers of different national varieties, different scenarios and age groups. The results also show the importance of situational factors, seniority and hierarchy for introductions.

    Finns det nationella svenska kommunikationsmönster? Tilltal i läkare-patientsamtal i Sverige och Finland2014In: Svenskans beskrivning 33: Förhandlingar vid trettiotredje sammankomsten för svenskans beskrivning, Helsingfors den 15–17 maj 2013 / [ed] Jan Lindström, Sofie Henricson, Anne Huhtala, Pirjo Kukkonen, Hanna Lehti-Eklund, Camilla Lindholm, Helsingfors: Helsingfors universitet, 2014, p. 343-352Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Många av världens språk är s.k. pluricentriska språk, dvs. språk som talas i fler länder än ett. Bara i Europa finns en rad exempel på sådana språk, till exempel engelska, franska, tyska och svenska. Men samtalar man på samma sätt i olika länder bara för att man talar samma språk? Eller ser de kommunikativa mönstren olika ut? Programmet ”Interaktion och variation i pluricentriska språk” (finansierat av Riksbankens Jubileumsfond 2013-2020) undersöker och jämför kommunikationen i samma typer av samtal i liknande miljöer i Sverige och Finland, med fokus på domänerna service, lärande och vård. Syftet är att identifiera skillnader och likheter i hur man utformar sociala handlingar som tilltal, signalerar samtycke och oenighet eller formulerar kritik och beröm i finlandssvenska och sverigesvenska.

    I vår presentation tar vi fasta på interpersonella orienteringar i läkare-patientsamtal inspelade i Sverige och Finland. Dels studerar vi förekomsten av tilltalsformer, dels studerar vi hur råd och direktiv formuleras i dessa interaktioner. Våra resultat visar att det finns klara tendenser till ett mindre formellt tilltal i de sverigesvenska samtalen. Samtidigt kan inte tilltalsstrategierna beskrivas enbart som mer formella i Finland, utan man utnyttjar speciellt i de finlandssvenska samtalen olika slags tekniker för undvikande av direkt tilltal. Tilltalsstrategierna hänger vidare ihop med hur råd och direktiv formuleras, dvs. hur pass direkt eller indirekt de riktar sig till den andra parten.

    Forskningsprogrammet syftar till att bidra till den internationella teoriutvecklingen inom forskningen om pluricentriska språk. Genom att använda teorier och metoder som samtalsanalys och kommunikationsetnografi kan programmet belysa och förklara pluricentriska språkfenomen som tidigare forskning inte riktigt kunnat komma åt. På så vis bidrar programmet till att utveckla den s.k. variationspragmatiken samtidigt som vi får ny kunskap om vad som är unikt för finlandssvenska respektive sverigesvenska samtal.

    Interpersonal relationships in medical consultations: Comparing Sweden Swedish and Finland Swedish address practices2015In: Journal of Pragmatics, ISSN 0378-2166, E-ISSN 1879-1387, Vol. 84, p. 121-138Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates how interpersonal relationships are expressed in medical consultations. In particular, we focus on how modes of address are used in the two national varieties of Swedish: Sweden Swedish and Finland Swedish, with the aim to compare the pragmatic routines in the two varieties. Thus the study contributes to the field of variational pragmatics, where national varieties of pluricentric languages are recognised as important research objects.  Address practices are analysed in two comparable corpora of video recordings from Sweden and Finland using both a quantitative and a qualitative CA-inspired method. There are several differences between the data sets: the Sweden Swedish data are characterised by exclusive use of the informal T pronoun (du ‘you’) and an overall higher frequency of direct address compared to the Finland Swedish data. In some medical consultations in the latter Swedish data the formal V pronoun (ni) is used. The qualitative analysis confirms these differences and the tendency is that the Sweden-Swedish medical consultations are more informal than the Finland-Swedish ones, which are characterised by more formality and maintenance of social distance between the interlocutors. The different pragmatic orientations at the micro level of communication can also be related to socio-cultural preferences at the macro level in society – the development towards greater informality and intimate language is more pronounced in Sweden than in Finland.

    Address and Interpersonal Relationships in Finland–Swedish and Sweden–Swedish Service Encounters2015In: Address Practice as Social Action: European Perspectives / [ed] Catrin Norrby, Camilla Wide, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015, p. 75-96Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter investigates address practices in 318 audio and video recorded service encounters at theatre box offices and other booking venues equally distributed across the two national varieties of Swedish, Sweden Swedish and Finland Swedish. The results demonstrate compelling variation in address choices, which can be linked to participant roles (customer–staff), generation (below and above 50 years) and national variety. Overall informal address with T (du) is the most common address form in both varieties, and is particularly salient among older customers in Sweden. There are few occurrences of V address in the data, and most are found among younger Finland-Swedish staff.

    Positioning through address practice in Finland-Swedish and Sweden-Swedish service encounters2018In: Positioning the Self and Others: Linguistic perspectives / [ed] Kate Beeching, Chiara Ghezzi, Piera Molinelli, John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2018, p. 19-49Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter investigates social positioning through the use (or non-use) of address pronouns in Finland-Swedish and Sweden-Swedish service encounters recorded at theatre and event booking venues in Finland and Sweden. The results demonstrate some compelling variation in address practices which can be attributed to participant roles (customer or staff), national variety (Finland-Swedish or Sweden-Swedish), age (younger or older speaker and addressee) and situational circumstances, such as type of venue and type of transaction, as well as micro-situational aspects which occur during the course of the interaction (complications, problems or topics treated as sensitive). The study highlights that different forms of address cannot be associated a priori with a certain level of formality, but should be interpreted in their micro and macro contexts in order to understand existing cultural norms for appropriate address.

    Framing in theater rehearsals: A longitudinal study following one line from page to stage2020In: Journal of Applied Linguistics and Professional Practice, ISSN 2040-3658, E-ISSN 2040-3666Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This video-ethnographic workplace study follows a theater rehearsal process, which to date is an under-researched professional setting. More specifically, the study investigates the process of  framing (Goffman 1974) contexts that together build up the theatrical framework (cf. MacLachlan and Reid 1994: 17). Applying a conversation analytic method, the analysis follows actors and a director longitudinally as they are framing a performance with respect to a single line in a script. The aim is to uncover how the participants develop the performance by framing various theatrical contexts in situated interactions and over time. The results show that the performance develops in a nonlinear manner, whereby social and psychological contexts are foregrounded first. These contexts are later backgrounded when the participants develop physical actions in the performance. Framing is a process of grounding (Clark 1996), in which the participants collaboratively and interactionally add content to the script, and arrive at a mutual understanding by recycling and developing previously established framings. Negotiations of framings are joint and explicit, challenging a view of theater work that actors should not be overly conscious of their actions on the stage.

    The timing of scene transitions in theatre rehearsalsManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This video-ethnographic workplace study explores how professional actors and a director at the end of a theatrical rehearsal process create timing in transitions between rehearsed scenes through the development and use of cues, that is ‘signals for action’, used in the communication between actors and between participants on and off stage. With multimodal Conversation Analysis as method, two research questions are addressed: What resources are used in what way for cueing? Who engages in what way in transitioning between scenes? The results show that cueing is a central tool for developing well-timed transitions, and that the body is a preferred resource for cueing. There is no prior plan for how to achieve timely transitions or for cueing. Cues develop collaboratively, in a format of candidate cuespecifying the cues and confirmation. The participants orient to precise cues, and the actors also create room for temporal variation through embodied actions.

    To stage an overlap – The longitudinal, collaborative and embodied process of staging eight lines in a professional theatre rehearsal process2019In: Journal of Pragmatics, ISSN 0378-2166, E-ISSN 1879-1387, Vol. 142, p. 171-184Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The theatrical rehearsal is to date a scarcely investigated institutional setting. This longitudinal, video-ethnographic study follows two actors' work with eight lines in a quarrel scene, from the first day of rehearsals to opening night. The rehearsal is regarded as a transformation process in which the production team laminate (Goodwin, 2018) the script with multimodal resources (Mondada, 2014). The script contains conventional signs for marking overlapping and loudness, and the aim of this study is to document longitudinally how the actors develop, use and coordinate these and other multimodal resources during the rehearsal process. The analysis shows that the actors laminate the script from the first day, and that overlapping and loudness function as mutually developing resources in the performance. Also, different kinds of resources are prominent at different stages of the process: overlap and loudness first increase during the process, but decrease later, as additional embodied resources become more prominent. The transformation process is thus not a linear development. The micro-analysis also shows that the performance on opening night is an emergent interaction, that is, a process. The data and the results challenge dominant theoretical models of participation in fictional discourse.

    Prestation, meningsskapande och sociala relationer: En undersökning av problemsekvenser vid den muntliga delen av Tisus (Test i svenska för universitets- och högskolestudier)2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna magisteruppsats undersöks med hjälp av en samtalsanalytisk metod hur testtagare och testledare orienterar sig mot problem i interaktionen vid samtalsdelen av Tisus. Det mest övergripande syftet är att undersöka hur testtagare och testledare förhåller sig till varandra i en samtalssituation där det huvudsakliga målet är att testtagarnas språkliga förmåga ska bedömas. Frågeställningarna syftar till att ta reda på hur testtagarna och testledaren orienterar sig mot problem i interaktionen, samt hur problemsekvenser skiljer sig åt beroende på om interaktionen äger rum mellan testtagare och testledare eller mellan flera testtagare. En vidare frågeställning syftar till att diskutera hur testtagare och testledare förhåller sig till samtalets ramar och mål vid problemsekvenser. Slutsatserna är att det tycks finnas skillnader i hur problem relevantgörs beroende på mellan vilka interaktionen äger rum. I interaktion mellan testtagarna relevantgörs problem i den egna språkliga förmågan hellre än i andras, vilket hänger samman med att testtagarna, då de interagerar med varandra, tycks värdera samtalets sociala mål högt. I interaktion med testledaren verkar testtagarna dock vara mer restriktiva med att relevantgöra problem som bottnar i den egna förmågan. Detta har förmodligen att göra med att testledaren på ett tydligare sätt orienterar samtalet mot prestationsmålet och därigenom tar mindre hänsyn till testtagarnas sociala ansikte. En vidare slutsats är att det i vissa problemsekvenser verkar uppstå osäkerhet bland testtagarna hur de ska förhålla sig till de olika målen i samtalet. Dels uppstår ibland krockar mellan de sociala och meningsskapande målen och dels verkar prestationsmålet också leda till förvirring. I problemsekvenserna antas prestationsmålet samspela med det sociala målet. Då en testtagare orienterar sig mot problem i en annans yttrande blir detta inte bara hotande mot den sociala stämningen i gruppen utan riskerar också att lyfta fram brister i den andras och den egna språkliga förmågan, vilket kan ses som ofördelaktigt utifrån prestationsmålet. Med andra ord verkar testtagarnas osäkerhet i vissa fall kunna förklaras med faktorer som bottnar i bedömningssamtalets icke-autentiska natur snarare än i bristande språklig förmåga, något som kan vara viktigt att ta hänsyn till vid bedömningen.

    Att inte se betydelsen för alla ord: En experimentell undersökning av två texter från Feministiskt initiativ ur ett andraspråksperspektiv2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens huvudsyfte är att undersöka om Feministiskt initiativ realiserar sin föreskrivna inkluderande politik i texterna de producerar. Utifrån huvudsyftet formuleras två delsyften: att undersöka om Feministiskt initiativ har några språkliga strategier för att nå ut till andraspråksbrukare samt att undersöka hur texterna fungerar för en person med svenska som andraspråk. Materialet är en webbtext från Feministiskt initiativs nationella hemsida och en folder från Feministiskt initiativ Storstockholm. Studiens övergripande forskningsdesign är metodologisk triangulering med enkäter, intervjuer, användartester med andraspråksbrukare och textanalys utifrån testresultaten. Resultatet visar att den inkluderande politiken saknas i de studerade texterna. Texternas svårighetsgrad skapar en snarast exkluderande diskurs, som riskerar att stänga ute bland andra andraspråksbrukare.

    De teologiska utredningarna i Medeltidens bibelarbeten 1.2019In: Arkiv för nordisk filologi, ISSN 0066-7668, Vol. 134, p. 49-102Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The collection of texts that usually are called Medeltidens bibelarbeten 1 (Medieval Bible Works 1, MB 1) contains a commented translation of the Pentateuch and some supporting texts, all probably from the first half of the fourteenth century. Among the supporting texts are two collections of theological expositions in the Old Swedish vernacular, which appear before and after the Pentateuch translation in the manuscripts. The first deals with questions of the creation and the original sin, the other one with the Old Law, and they are mainly translations of excerpts from Thomas of Aquinas’ Summa theologiæ. The investigations show clear indications of that it was the same person who translated and created the theological expositions and the Pentateuch translation, something that has been previously assumed but never investigated closely. The theme of the second theological exposition relates closely to an important feature of the translation method in the Pentateuch and there are close connections between the expositions and the comments of the Bible translation. From an investigation of metatextual comments it is argued that the Pentateuch translation was carried out first and the expositions later. Altogether, the connection between the supplementary texts and the Pentateuch translation improves our opportunities to discuss MB 1 as a work, what kind of reader MB 1 was intended for, and its place in the Swedish and Nordic text history of the fourteenth century in general.

    Response practices in multilingual interaction with an older Persian woman in a Swedish residential home2014In: Journal of Cross-Cultural Gerontology, ISSN 0169-3816, E-ISSN 1573-0719, Vol. 29, no 1, p. 1-23Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the present case study, a care encounter between an older multilingual (Farsi/Swedish/English) Persian woman and staff in an ordinary, Swedish residential home is investigated. The woman is perceived as suffering from dementia symptoms, but has not received any formal diagnosis of the disease. More specifically, the study focuses on how the woman's contributions in her mother tongue, Farsi, are responded to by a carer, who is also multilingual and speaks Swedish as a second language (L2), but has a very limited knowledge of Farsi. The data consists of recorded material from a mundane morning activity in the residential home, as the woman is undressed and prepared to go to the shower. The method employed is conversation analysis, and the study addresses the interactional outcome of this type of multilingual encounters, highlighting the way the establishment of mutual understanding is negatively affected by the fact that the participants do not or only to a limited extent share a common language. Analysis of the data shows that most of the woman's contributions in Farsi are responded to in L2-Swedish by the carer, primarily by means of seven different response practices: soothing talk, instrumental talk, minimal responses, explicit expressions of understanding, mitigating talk, questions, and appraisal. The findings are discussed in light of new demands on Swedish (and Western) care- and health care systems to adapt to the increasing number of multilingual, older people, who will become residents in care facilities and attend day centers within the coming years.

    Abstract [en]

    The foot (Gk. poús) in poetic meter typically refers to the unit made up of two metrical positions, which carries a name like iamb, trochee, dactyl, spondee, or anapest. Meters are usually referred to in terms of what is taken to be the canonical form of the verse foot, plus a specification of line length in terms of metron (dactylic hexameter, iambic trimeter, spondaic pentameter, etc.). Feet in meter correspond roughly to prosodic words in phonology.

    Abstract [en]

    The metron (Gk. μέτρον) in poetic meter refers to the unit that is repeated in the line of verse (stichic verse), or that otherwise recurs in a stable shape across stanzas and poems (lyric verse). The size of a metron is either a single verse foot (dactyl, spondee), or a pair of verse feet (trochaic, iambic, anapestic), within which some stable property occurs.

    The meter of Tashlhiyt Berber songs2017In: Natural language and linguistic theory, ISSN 0167-806X, E-ISSN 1573-0859, Vol. 35, no 2, p. 499-548Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    I present an analysis of Tashlhiyt Berber meter, based on the corpus of ‘straight’ meters collected and analyzed by Dell and Elmedlaoui (2008). There are 56 meters (35 independent, 21 dependent), which are systematically related to each other. Based on the many shared properties of all straight meters and their individual inflexibility, I suggest that they all derive from the same general metrical template, much in the same way as proposed by Deo (2007) for several Sanskrit meters. The individual meters are thus different realizations of the general meter, where the modulation of line length is part of the realizational variation (unlike the case in Sanskrit). I also argue that the generalizations pertaining to the system of meters can be better understood, and more broadly formulated, in terms of the phonology of the language, in three areas. First, the Tashlhiyt straight meters are rhythmic in a very specific sense: they all obey NO CLASH . Several previously unconnected facts—verse foot shapes, avoidance of two heavy syllables in sequence, and the regular alternation of verse feet—follow from this single fact. Second, the meters are pervasively binary, with a strong preference for tetrameter, a fact that is not predicted by models where line length is stipulated (e.g. Hanson and Kiparsky 1996; Fabb and Halle 2008). Line length tendencies follow from the linguistic constraints on binarity, under the assumption that metrical templates are derived from the prosodic hierarchy, rather than externally, e.g. from a specific meter-generating module (e.g. Kiparsky 1977; Blumenfeld 2015). This would indicate that meter is derived from grammar in just the same way as prosodic morphemes. Third, and related to the second point, the regular prosody and the meter are simultaneously present in a line of verse, a common assumption. However, the fact that both structures come out of the linguistic grammar means that grammar operates in both domains (like in root-and-pattern morphology), rather than there being a matching between them. Meter obeys some constraint to a higher degree than does regular prosody, instantiating overall improvement in the particular respect addressed by the chosen constraint. In the straight meters of Tashlhiyt Berber, this privileged constraint is NO CLASH  (as also in Tegnér’s Swedish hexameter), whereas in other systems the constraint may concern e.g. the alignment of prominence at some level (Darío’s Spanish alexandrines, Strindberg’s Swedish hexameter).

    Den kollektiva skrivprocessen: En fallstudie av hur medarbetare på Försäkringskassan producerar texter i grupp2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna fallstudie studeras hur medarbetare på Försäkringskassan anpassar sig efter och samarbetar i ett skrivprojekt där flera deltagare med olika mycket inflytande över och engagemang gemensamt producerar texter. Syftet med studien är att kartlägga hur deltagarna i skrivprojektet nyttjar kognition och kommunikation. Frågorna som studien försöker besvara är 1.vem deltar i skrivprocessen och hur, 2.hur upplever deltagarna att den kollektiva aspekten på skrivandet påverkar deras kognition och 3.vilken roll spelar deltagarnas individuella kognitiva processer i sociala förhandlingar?

    Materialet som studeras har inhämtats med kommunikationsetnografiska och praxisanalytiska metoder genom deltagande observation och intervjuer där deltagarna själva har fått bidra till analysen. Resultaten visar att deltagarna delas in i en kärngrupp, som oftast skriver och fattar beslut, och en grupp med sekundära deltagare, som fungerar som en resurs och sätter begränsningar för kärngruppen. Deltagarna förhandlar kring sanning, mål och idéer under den kollektiva skrivprocessen genom att verbalisera sina kognitiva processer. Förhandlingarna förebygger konflikter och missförstånd, och kompenserar delvis för det faktum att deltagarna inte delar en gemensam kognitiv monitor. I en välfungerande grupp kan deltagarna också avlasta varandra kognitivt.

    Studien avslutas med råd baserat på resultaten om vad man bör tänka på när man ska skriva i en komplex gruppkonstellation, och med förslag på framtida forskningsområden.

    Att fånga den muntliga färdigheten2014Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Sedan den kommunikativa språkundervisningens genomslag på 70-talet, har fokus riktats alltmer mot språkinlärares förmåga att använda språket i olika situationer. Muntliga övningar har en given plats både i undervisningen som språkutvecklande metod och som en del av prov och andra bedömningssammanhang. Samtidigt är det också en färdighet som ofta lyfts fram som svårbedömd och svårfångad.

    Being ‘a competent language user’ in a world of Others – Adult migrants’ perceptions and constructions of communicative competence2018In: Linguistics and Education, ISSN 0898-5898, E-ISSN 1873-1864, Vol. 45, p. 101-109Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the lived experience of language (Busch, 2017) in relation to perceptions of what it means to be ‘a competent language user’. How to define language competence is an ongoing discussion in applied linguistics. However, relatively little attention has been given to the lived experiences of adult migrants with respect to their perceptions of competence. Drawing on an analysis of focus group discussions with adult migrants enrolled in a language program in basic Swedish, this article builds on understandings of communicative competence as a relational construct shaped by intersubjective processes. Corroborating the relational view of competence is the importance given to emotional perspectives on competence and the role played by assessments, both those made by others and internalized self-assessments. Meanwhile, discourses on the language competence of adult migrants often frame successful language learning as an individual responsibility and achievement, obscuring the relational process underlying the perceptions and constructions of communicative competence.

    Syftet med den här delen är att diskutera det talade språkets roll för andraspråksutvecklingen. Fokus ligger på vad som kännetecknar muntlig språkanvändning  och hur talat språk kan synliggöras, stöttas och bedömas i undervisningen, exempelvis genom arbete med dramatisering för att främja språkutveckling och språklig medvetenhet.

    Abstract [sv]

    Politiska krav på att invandrare ska lära sig svenska bättre och snabbare dyker upp i debatten med jämna mellanrum. För ett par veckor sedan lanserade Socialdemokraterna “språkplikt”. Maria Rydell ställer sig frågande till detta och pekar på komplexiteten i vuxnas språkinlärning. Möjligheten att lära sig ett nytt språk hänger inte bara ihop med en individs “vilja” utan även med de organisatoriska förutsättningarna.

    Abstract [sv]

    Muntlig färdighet är centralt för människan men samtidigt svårbedömt för läraren. I det här kapitlet vill författaren lyfta fram att det är viktigt för lärare att ingående studera samtal för att bli bättre på att bedöma dem. För att öka kvaliteten i samtal – och därmed ge mer underlag för bedömning – beskrivs i det här kapitlet vikten av att ge alla elever utrymme i samtalen, lyfta lyssnandets roll i samtal och visa hur förhandling om mening utgör en viktig del i interaktion. Författaren beskriver också hur diskussioner kring muntlig språkanvändning synliggör resurser och strategier för elever samtidigt som det bygger upp deras språkliga medvetenhet kring talat språk.

    Negotiating co-participation: Embodied word searching sequences in paired L2 speaking tests2019In: Journal of Pragmatics, ISSN 0378-2166, E-ISSN 1879-1387, Vol. 149, p. 60-77Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores embodied word searching sequences in paired L2 speaking tests in a national test in basic Swedish for adult migrants in Sweden. A particular focus is given to sequences where the speaker invites the interlocutor to participate in the search and to extended word searches where co-participation is negotiated in different ways. Drawing on an embodied interactional analysis of 27 video recorded paired speaking tests, this study shows how embodied semiotic resources are used both to negotiate participation in the word searching sequences and to display an avoidance to participate in the word search even when being invited to do so. Overall, the participants prioritize the progressivity of talk rather than pursuing lexical precision. This study argues that the test takers' awareness of being assessed can have an impact on how they perform the word searches. Finally, the study makes the case that even though word search behavior is similar across languages, it remains important to treat word searching as a contextualized interactional practice.

    Performance and ideology in speaking tests for adult migrants2015In: Journal of Sociolinguistics, ISSN 1360-6441, E-ISSN 1467-9841, Vol. 19, no 4, p. 535-558Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Language learning linked to migration is an important issue in many contemporary societies. This article discusses how adult migrants following a L2 Swedish course express beliefs on competence, language learning and language use during a test event. The theoretical framework is based on performance theory and the Bakhtinian notion of addressivity. Drawing on an interactional analysis of 27 video-recorded paired speaking tests (acandidate-candidate discussion) in the final national exam in an L2 Swedish course for adult migrants, the article discusses how the speaking tests could be interpreted as institutionalized staged performance. It is argued here that institutional performance puts ideologies on display. Stance-taking, interactional alignment and an orientation to dominant discourses on monolingualism and integration become important resources for keeping the discussion going in front of the examiners. Finally, the study argues that the view of speaking tests as performance provides a deeper understanding of the complexity of language use in test settings.

    Bimodal tvåspråkighet hos elever med hörselnedsättning: En multimodal samtalsanalytisk studie av klassrumsinteraktion i två hörselklasser2015Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Bimodal bilingualism among people with hearing loss is an area of ​​research with limited extent. This study aims to highlight how bimodal bilingualism can work in a class of hard-of hearing students. Through partaking observation, video recordings of interaction in the classrooms have been made, which later have been transcribed with a multimodal conversation analysis approach. The multimodal conversation analysis comprises both the spoken and the signed interaction. Based on the questions of how and in what way signs and the sign language are used in classroom interaction, the results show that code-blending, i.e. simultaneous use of speech and signs, was common among both teachers and students. Another common phenomenon that emerged in the classroom observations is code-switching, which occurs when pupils change their language for specific purposes, e.g. to whisper to each other during the ongoing lesson. Another feature code-switching demonstrated was the ability to conduct schismings during an ongoing activity.
