    Does Grammatical Aspect Affect Motion Event Cognition? A Cross-Linguistic Comparison of English and Swedish Speakers2013In: Cognitive science, ISSN 0364-0213, E-ISSN 1551-6709, Vol. 37, no 2, p. 286-309Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we explore whether cross-linguistic differences in grammatical aspect encoding may give rise to differences in memory and cognition. We compared native speakers of two languages that encode aspect differently (English and Swedish) in four tasks that examined verbal descriptions of stimuli, online triads matching, and memory-based triads matching with and without verbal interference. Results showed between-group differences in verbal descriptions and in memory-based triads matching. However, no differences were found in online triads matching and in memory-based triads matching with verbal interference. These findings need to be interpreted in the context of the overall pattern of performance, which indicated that both groups based their similarity judgments on common perceptual characteristics of motion events. These results show for the first time a cross-linguistic difference in memory as a function of differences in grammatical aspect encoding, but they also contribute to the emerging view that language fine tunes rather than shapes perceptual processes that are likely to be universal and unchanging.

    The ‘thinking’ in thinking-for-speaking: Where is it?2013In: Language, Interaction, and Acquisition, ISSN 1879-7865, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 91-100Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    According to the thinking-for-speaking (TFS) hypothesis, speakers of different languages think differently while in the process of mentally preparing content for speech. The aim of the present paper is to critically discuss the research carried out within the TFS paradigm, against the background of the basic tenets laid out by the proponents of this framework. We will show that despite substantial progress in the investigation of crosslinguistic differences in the organisation of information in discourse, the studies that actually examine the cognitive aspects of speech production are, to date, vanishingly few. This state of affairs creates a gap in our knowledge about the thought processes that co-occur with speech production during language use and acquisition. We will argue that in order to reach a more comprehensive picture of the cognitive processes and outcomes of speech production, methodologies additional to the analysis of information organisation must be used.

    Two Languages, Two Minds: Flexible Cognitive Processing Driven by Language of Operation2015In: Psychological Science, ISSN 0956-7976, E-ISSN 1467-9280, Vol. 26, no 4, p. 518-526Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    People make sense of objects and events around them by classifying them into identifiable categories. The extent to which language affects this process has been the focus of a long-standing debate: Do different languages cause their speakers to behave differently? Here, we show that fluent German-English bilinguals categorize motion events according to the grammatical constraints of the language in which they operate. First, as predicted from cross-linguistic differences in motion encoding, bilingual participants functioning in a German testing context prefer to match events on the basis of motion completion to a greater extent than do bilingual participants in an English context. Second, when bilingual participants experience verbal interference in English, their categorization behavior is congruent with that predicted for German; when bilingual participants experience verbal interference in German, their categorization becomes congruent with that predicted for English. These findings show that language effects on cognition are context-bound and transient, revealing unprecedented levels of malleability in human cognition.

    Learning to Think in a Second Language: Effects of Proficiency and Length of Exposure in English Learners of German2015In: The Modern language journal, ISSN 0026-7902, E-ISSN 1540-4781, Vol. 99, p. 138-153Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the current study is to investigate motion event cognition in second language learners in a higher education context. Based on recent findings that speakers of grammatical aspect languages like English attend less to the endpoint (goal) of events than do speakers of nonaspect languages like Swedish in a nonverbal categorization task involving working memory (Athanasopoulos & Bylund, 2013; Bylund & Athanasopoulos, 2015), the current study asks whether native speakers of an aspect language start paying more attention to event endpoints when learning a nonaspect language. Native English and German (a nonaspect language) speakers, and English learners of L2 German, who were pursuing studies in German language and literature at an English university, were asked to match a target scene with intermediate degree of endpoint orientation with two alternate scenes with low and high degree of endpoint orientation, respectively. Results showed that, compared to the native English speakers, the learners of German were more prone to base their similarity judgements on endpoint saliency, rather than ongoingness, primarily as a function of increasing L2 proficiency and year of university study. Further analyses revealed a nonlinear relationship between length of L2 exposure and categorization patterns, subserved by a progressive strengthening of the relationship between L2 proficiency and categorization as length of exposure increased. These findings present evidence that cognitive restructuring may occur through increasing experience with an L2, but also suggest that this relationship may be complex and unfold over a long period of time.

    The psychological reality of spatio-temporal metaphors2017In: Studies in Figurative Thought and Language / [ed] Angelikē Athanasiadu, Amsterdam: John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2017, p. 296-321Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Time provides essential structure to human experience. This chapter reviews the available empirical evidence for a fundamental metaphoric structure such astime is spacein figurative language and thought. The chapter is organized into three over-arching themes: Motion through time, temporal succession, and duration estimation. A large part of the experimental evidence lends support to the psychological reality of thetime is spacemetaphor, revealing the inextricable link between conceptual metaphor in language and time perception. The review also reveals that linguistic space-time mappings may be overridden by cultural conventions, calling for further empirical cross-linguistic and cross-cultural exploration within experimental cognitive linguistics.

    Fotbollens gemensamma språk: En studie om språkets betydelse för fotbollsspelare och språkutbildningens framtida plats på fotbollsplanen2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Fotbollens gemensamma språk kan framstå som en kliché och som något påhittat. Syftet med denna studie är att ge en bild av hur svensk fotbollsverksamhet arbetar med inkludering och olika faktorer som berör svensk integration med fokus på språkinlärning. Studien är kvalitativ och undersöker hur två professionella fotbollsspelare ser på sin integrationsprocess och hur de ser på sin egen språkinlärning rörande det svenska språket samt språkets betydelse för integration, delaktighet och gemenskap.

    En representant från Stockholmsidrotten applicerar dessutom ytterligare perspektiv på hur fotbolls- föreningar i Stockholmsområdet arbetar med integrationsfrågor. Studien tar sitt avstamp utifrån begreppen integration, inkludering, delaktighet och gemenskap samt språk, som även är centrala begrepp inom idrottsverksamhet och delger utifrån ett bredare pedagogiskt perspektiv hur den idrottsliga föreningsverksamheten inom Stockholmsområdet arbetar med integration av nyanlända till Sverige.

    Studiens metodologiska utgångspunkt bygger på en hermeneutisk tradition inom vilken studiens deltagare intervjuats semistrukturerat och ostrukturerat. Deltagarnas berättelser har sedan tolkats, översatts och analyserats utifrån delvis samtalsanalys och delvis narrativ analys.

    Resultatet av studien visar att fotbollsföreningar idag utför ett tungt arbete gällande integration av individer med utländsk bakgrund. Det finns i dagsläget ytterst få initiativ som bygger på språkinlärning som inkluderande metod. Däremot finns ett stort utrymme för fotbollsverksamhet, skola och samhälle att samarbeta och tillsammans inrätta denna sorts verksamhet.

    The Blog's Role for Health Literacy and Knowledge Formation in the Information Society – A Genre Analysis of Structural and Linguistic Patterns in Blogs on Children with Congenital Heart defects

    The article explores how genres used on blogs can express certain kinds of knowledge by analysing how parents to children with congenital heart defects use patient blogs. Genre analysis (Martin & Rose 2008) is performed in order to investigate the blog format. The survey shows that the blog content may be regarded as a narrative macro genre that brings a certain framework for the blog as a resource for knowledge formation. The blog format also provides bloggers a well-used opportunity to, within the blog, make their own choices of genre structures and to make shifts between genres. This enables shifts between experience based content and general medical facts, which may work as a resource to gain health literacy.

    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.

    Kategorisering och konstruktion av kön i niondeklassares texter2015In: Skrivande i skolan / [ed] Maria Lindgren, Gudrun Svensson, Malmö: Gleerups Utbildning AB, 2015, 1, p. 117-132Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln visar hur elever i årskurs 9 skriver fram kategorisering och konstruktion av kön i skolan. I texterna framträder särskilt tre kategorier vars röster genomsyrar beskrivningarna, dvs. lärarens, den allmänna åsiktens och elevens. I artikeln åskådliggörs hur eleverna reagerar inför vedertagna mönster och visar upp ett kritiskt reflekterande förhållningssätt när lärare sorterar och kategoriserar efter kön. Samtidigt är de inte alltid klarsynta inför sina egna stereotyper och väver in dem i sina berättelser.

    Som metod används Membership Categorization Analysis, MCA (Sacks 1974, senare utvecklad av bl.a. Baker 1997 och Hester & Eglin 1997) som är ett redskap för analys av kategorisering i samtal. Artikeln är skriven enligt ett inom språkvetenskapen vedertaget mönster med en viss struktur, referenser inom parentes i brödtexten och en kompletterande referenslista i slutet av artikeln.

    Abstract [en]

    What tends to be regarded as the prototypical language of digital texts is often associated with a certain linguistic style, for example strong expressions of emotion, an absence of references, use of emoticons and unconventional abbreviations (Hård af Segerstad 2002). This article broadens the image of digital texts by studying blogging as participation in communicative activities (Levinson 1979, Lave & Wenger 1998, Sarangi 2000, Linell 2011). The study explores how language use is shaped by the social contexts it forms part of. Individuals are seen as bearers of linguistic repertoires, from which they can draw and use different resources in different contexts in order to create meaning. The study draws attention to social and contextual factors as significant for how two bloggers, Dan 16 and Erik 85 years old, choose linguistic resources when they produce blog posts about participating in an excursion with friends. It provides a greater understanding of young people’s and senior citizens’ everyday writing and shows how individuals’ digital texts are the result of of a complex interplay between contextual, technical and personal factors.

    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.

    Becoming the expert constructing health knowledge in epistemic communities online2018In: Information, Communication and Society, ISSN 1369-118X, E-ISSN 1468-4462Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From a discourse analytic framework, the article analyses health blogs and patient’s forum discussions in which parents to children with congenital heart defects recontextualize medical professional knowledge and share their own experiences. The study show how the two types of online media may serve as a means for parents to attain expert status in their own case by sharing lay knowledge expressed as an amalgamation of the two key perspectives – professional and experienced – as an indivisible unit. Monological discourses, such as narrating, in blogs and more direct and immediate responses in forum discussions are noted as examples of differences in how medical facts are explained and negotiated, how advice is provided and how patient expertise is created. The study also show how blogs and especially forum discussions are used to problematize the validity of actions and opinions of medical staff. The role of developing patient expertise in epistemic communities online may therefore come with a risk of spreading misrepresentation of medical cases.

    Building health knowledge online: Parents’ online information searching on congenital heart defects2017In: Literacy and Numeracy Studies: An international journal in the education and training of adults, ISSN 1441-0559, E-ISSN 1839-2903, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 4-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study examines online searching as a digital health literacy practice and focuses on parents of children with congenital heart defects. Over the period of four years, we have conducted interviews with couples at different stages of pregnancy or parenthood and have encouraged them to reflect on their literacy practices when receiving a heart defect diagnosis, during the remaining time of their pregnancy and when living with a child with a heart defect. We have also read and analysed health blogs written by parents and focused on extracts where literacy events are described. Searching for information and support online is one of the most frequent practices amongst the participants in the study. The aim of this paper is therefore to highlight the complexity of looking for information online in order to take health decisions and provide care to a child with congenital illness. Based on what parents say they do when searching online, we focus on three main paths to knowledge: looking for medical facts, looking for other parents’ experiences and looking for practical information. We discuss digital health literacy practices as complex activities that often involve parents in the diagnosis and in the child’s medical care to such an extent that parents build up knowledge and become experts, not only in finding information and support but in talking and writing about their child’s illness. We also problematise the notion of trustworthy health information and show how facts and opinions often go hand in hand in platforms where health issues are discussed. Finally, we show some of the affordances and restrictions inherent in using the internet as a source for meaning making and learning about children’s health. The results reinforce our understanding of the socially framed nature of health literacy and make us focus on the digital as an additional important aspect in the practice of health literacy.

    Analysing a Harvest Moon: On the translation of role language in Bokujō Monogatari: Hajimari no Daichi for the Nintendo 3DS2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis seeks to introduce the concept of role language in translation in the context of video game localisation. There is very little written on the subject of role language in translation from Japanese to English, and none which pertains to role language in video games. There is also a seeming deficiency of reliable literature regarding the product of translation in video game localisation, analysing what was done and what effects it may have had on the finished product. By analysing the particular role language profiles of selected characters from Bokujō Monogatari: Hajimari no Daichi for the Nintendo 3DS, this thesis hopes to serve as a stepping stone towards a new area of video game localisation.

    Eight non-playable characters, four male and four female, were analysed to create their respective role language profiles. Four scenarios were chosen for each character: the first and last heart event, the love confession and the married life sequence. The translations of each of these scenarios were analysed, along with how the respective characters were linguistically portrayed.

    The study found that although many characters were found to retain most of their original linguistic profiling in translation, there were instances where misconception of the source text could have been a factor. The translations where this rather than a different linguistic profile altered the character’s perception, the translations were often ST-oriented. In translations where the characterisation had been unaltered, predominantly it seemed the result of a critical distance from the ST and willingness on the translator’s part to take creative liberties.

    Role language is an integral feature of Japanese popular fiction, and it would seem that the fictional realms of video games are no exception. Although this thesis has studied only a limited sample, it would not be entirely out of line to draw the initial conclusion that to take a step back from the source material and instead focus on conveying a perception of a character rather than follow the written script, seems to result in a character portrayal in the target text similar to that in the source text.

    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.

    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.

    Ett monumentalt misslyckande: En diskursanalys av veteranmonumentet Restare2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Ett monument hyser samhällets kollektiva värderingar och ideal. I denna studie undersöks hur olika aktörer tillskriver betydelser till det kontroversiella svenska veteranmonumentet Restare i texter. För att studera hur dessa centrala aktörer, som är inblandade i resandet av monumentet rättfärdigar eller kritiserar monumentet används en legitimeringsanalys. Resultatet visar att olika legitimeringsstrategier används av de olika aktörerna, som pekar på att olika aktörer förstår veteranmonument olika. Dessutom visar resultatet att Sveriges institutioner är avståndstagande till diskurser som krig och veteraner, vilket möjligtvis är en av anledningarna till att militära veteraner kritiserar Restare. Studien ansluter även till tidigare forskning som visar att abstrakta monument har svårt att förmedla sitt tänkta budskap till en bred mottagarmassa.

    What's the target? A folk linguistic study of young Stockholmers' constructions of linguistic norm and variation2016In: Language Awareness, ISSN 0965-8416, E-ISSN 1747-7565, Vol. 25, no 1-2, p. 17-39Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To account for the full range of language use in contemporary multilingual urban contexts, the notion of target language (TL) needs to be reconsidered. In studies of second language acquisition and language variation, taking TL for granted implies that people agree on what constitutes 'good' language, or the standard norm. The TL of language learners and users is, however, more heterogeneous than is often assumed. To gain insight into what people are actually targeting in their language development and use, we need to study their perceptions of ambient sociolinguistic variation. In this folk linguistic listener study involving 343 upper secondary school students, a range of data types were analysed: attitude scales, variety labelling, and assessments of speakers' social and linguistic backgrounds. This article highlights some results pointing to a considerable divergence in the listeners' perceptions, in particular with regard to speech representing what is here characterised as migration-related social dialects. Several listeners labelled these samples as 'good' Swedish, possibly suggesting that they do not simply aim at or even relate to a TL identical with the dominating monolingual norm, but may instead have a less narrow view of the kind of Swedish they consider appropriate for use in more formal situations.

    Vems vårdplan?: En studie av mottagaranpassningsstrategier i fyra regioners Min vårdplan för bröstcancerpatienter2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Individuella vårdplaner för cancerpatienter infördes 2009 i och med den nationella cancerstrategin och syftar till att ge varje patient en samlad bild av besök, behandling och sjukdom. I den här uppsatsen undersöks olika strategier för mottagaranpassning i fyra regioners Min vårdplan för patienter med bröstcancer. Med utgångspunkt i den systemisk-funktionella grammatiken görs en interpersonell analys av tilltal och omtal respektive modalitet, för att dels kunna beskriva vilka mottagare som pekas ut i texten och erbjuds identifikation, och dels undersöka hur avsändarna kommunicerar information av olika karaktär till mottagarna. För att besvara det senare grundar sig analysen även till viss del i indirekthet och artighetsstrategier. Resultatet visar att de fyra vårdplanerna alla har ett relativt konsekvent du-tilltal, särskilt i introduktionsavsnitt som fungerar relationsskapande. Ibland specificeras du:et genom efterställda attribut av typen ”[du] som har fått diagnosen bröstcancer”. Men ibland övergår tilltalet till ett mer distanserat omtal i information av mer känslig eller hotande karaktär, till exempel i beskrivningar av känslor, sociala påföljder eller biverkningar. I sådan information är det även vanligt att använda modalitet av lägre sannolikhets- och vanlighetsgrad, som ett sätt att förmildra det som påstås. Resultatet visar också en skillnad i hur uppmaningar uttrycks: instruktioner av viktigare, och kanske därmed mer hotande, karaktär uttrycks oftare inkongruent med du-tilltal och förpliktelsemodalitet, möjligen som ett sätt att rikta dessa viktiga uppmaningar till mottagaren och med modalitetsmarkörer förklara hur viktigt det är att uppmaningen följs. De största skillnaderna mellan de fyra vårdplanerna visar sig i omtal av kvinnor och män och därmed vem man signalerar att mottagaren av texten är. Det leder till en avslutande diskussion om för- och nackdelar med mottagaranpassning – kan inkludering bli exkluderande?

    Places and Spaces for Multimodal Writing in ‘One-to-One’ Computing2015In: Multimodality in Writing: The State of the Art in Theory, Methodology and Pedagogy / [ed] Arlene Archer, Esther Breuer, Leiden: Brill Academic Publishers, 2015, p. 204-230Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In ‘one-to-one’ computing, schools provide learners with individual laptops. This chapter presents an analysis of how such laptops are used for writing and text creation by students in two secondary schools. The chapter is framed by a theoretical interest in the interconnections between uses of ‘one-to-one’ laptops in physical places, the virtual spaces they may ‘open up’, and their uses for performing semiotic actions. The results point to differences and possible inequalities in terms of how students perceive and use the semiotic potentials of the laptops as a means for engaging with and acting on the world through writing in combination with other semiotic modes.

    Abstract [en]

    Professor Gunther Kress is one of the international leading researchers in the fields of multimodality, social semiotics, discourse analysis, genre studies and education. He has published widely in these fields, and has a new book out in 2016: Multimodality, learning and communication: A social semiotic frame (written together with Jeff Bezemer). Kress has supervised more than 60 PhD researchers over the years, an experience that he draws upon in the chapter ‘Researching in conditions of provisionality: Reflecting on the PhD in the digital and multimodal era’ (2012). Anders Björkvall met up with him in London in order to discuss a number of topics, ranging from the broader challenges of higher education today to the relation between theory and methodology in the PhD.

    Practices of visual communication in a primary school classroom: digital image collection as a potential semiotic mode2014In: Classroom Discourse, ISSN 1946-3014, E-ISSN 1946-3022, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 22-37Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    ‘One-to-one’ computing projects in which learners work with individual laptops or tablets across subjects are rapidly increasing in number. One aspect of this is that as the laptops give access to the Internet; digital images and texts – potentially from all over the globe – move into the classroom in an unprecedented manner. The paper presents an analysis of specific classroom practices involving seven- to eight-year-olds: the collecting of digital images and their use as semiotic resources in the creation of multimodal texts. The aim is to describe the children’s digital image collections as more or less mode-like – that is, as a more or less systematically organised set of resources for making meaning. The methodology is described as social semiotic ethnography, combining semiotic analysis of images and texts with ethnographic understandings of the personal histories and interests of participants. The paper concludes that there are obvious practices in the classroom in which the children use their image collections in a mode-like way, such as categorising images according to semantic criteria, using them for display of identities in the classroom and systematically using them when designing multimodal texts, expressing both simple denotational meanings and more complex connotational semiotic potentials. Another conclusion is that the children’s image collections have untapped learning potentials, for example regarding critical reflections on how images create meaning, which could form the foundation for concrete learning activities in the classroom.

    Ecologies of ‘upcycling’ as design for learning in Higher Education2016In: Short papers, 2016, p. 7-12Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    As society changes, new ways of understanding and using existing semiotic resources are needed. This study looks at artefacts from a social semiotic perspective in order to explore the concepts of ‘recycling’ and ‘upcycling’ and their relevance for pedagogy in Higher Education. We look at recycling in terms of ‘texts’ and employ methodological tools from multimodal discourse analysis. ‘Recycling’ involves converting materials from one product to create a different product with a different function, without necessarily adding any type of value. In ‘upcycling’, economic, aesthetic or functional value is always added. ‘Upcycling’ can thus be understood as a process of recontextualization of semiotic resources, in both spatio-linguistic and sensory terms. This paper looks at how resources are recontextualized as part of global ecologies of production and consumption. Then, we explore these insights in the pedagogical domain, looking at possible implications of the principles of ‘upcycling’ and value adding through design as a means for educating global critical citizens.

    Abstract [sv]

    Då individuella datorer delas ut till elever för att användas för skrivande och lärande i allmänhet brukar man tala om ”en-till-en”-projekt: en dator per elev. I den här artikeln diskuterar författarna hur ett ekologiskt perspektiv på bärbara datorer i relation till fysiska och virtuella platser (t.ex. bloggar eller andra webbsidor) kan ge sätt att tänka kring textskapande och lärande i ”en-till-en”-miljöer. Resonemangen illustreras med exempel från elever från två svenska högstadieskolor i en kommun i Stockholmsområdet. Artikeln lyfter fram den skrivpedagogiska potential som datorn har när det gäller gränsöverskridande textskapande.

    Akademiskt läsande och skrivande2015Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Studier på universitet och högskola innebär en utmaning för de allra flesta studenter, inte minst när det gäller de höga kraven på läs- och skrivförmåga. Texterna som ska läsas uppfattas ofta som svårtillgängliga och de skriftliga uppgifterna man ställs inför som nervpressande. Så hur gör man då för att ta sig an de högt ställda förväntningarna och planera studierna på ett effektivt sätt? Hur utvecklar man lässtrategier som leder till att man på djupet förstår innehållet i en vetenskaplig text? Och hur gör man för att förbättra sitt eget skrivande i riktning mot ökad anpassning till den akademiska genren och stilnivån?

    Genom sina resonerande textavsnitt och praktiska övningar ger boken tydlig vägledning i hur man kan utveckla läs- och skrivförmågan i akademiska sammanhang. Författarna beskriver bland annat högskolan som studiemiljö, ger konkreta råd om studieteknik, förklarar hur man utvecklar sitt skrivande genom respons från andra samt lyfter fram utmärkande drag i den vetenskapliga texten och i det akademiska språket.

    "Att skriva avtal är att förutse problem": Medierad diskursanalys som metod för att studera bolagsjuristers textbruk2013In: Sakprosa, ISSN 1502-6000, E-ISSN 1891-5108, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 1-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    By applying concepts from Mediated Discourse Analysis (MDA, Scollon & Scollon 2004), this article contributes to the field of applied linguistics theoretically and empirically. The theoretical issue is the problematization raised by e.g. Karlsson (2010) on how to regard the text–“context” relationship. The empirical contribution concerns our knowledge about how texts are used in professional communication. The data consists of observations of company lawyers’ work, interviews, a focus group, a few texts and feedback from lawyers on preliminary findings. The results show that the writing of contracts is a predominant social practice (or practice of nexus, as several practices are included in this) for company lawyers; that this practice includes anticipating and avoiding problems for the company; and how this practise is locally performed together with other professional representatives. MDA is shown i.e. to include concepts for analysing actors dealing with complexity out of the immediate interaction.

    “Put a meeting in my calendar!” The literacy practice of the digital calendar in workplaces2019In: Sakprosa, ISSN 1502-6000, E-ISSN 1891-5108, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 1-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Modern work life includes many digital tools, of which the shared digital calendar has attracted little attention in applied linguistics. The framework for this study is mediated discourse analysis applied to ethnographic data from one workplace and eight contextual interviews from eight other workplaces. The data were analyzed 1) qualitatively, using Wertsch’s (1998) concepts for agency, and 2) quantitatively, through an SFG (Systemic Functional Grammar) analysis of the interviews. The quantitative analysis reveals a high degree of agency. The qualitative analysis shows that discourses of managerialism, globalization, democratization and “flat organizations” can be mapped to the digital calendar. The calendar is also related to other text media such as whiteboards and time report systems, where squares with colors and writing constitute the discursive shapes that are common to the digital calendar. The ability to search and book meetings in the calendars of others is an affordance, although regulated through digital or verbal access. In this and other ways, the individual is strongly connected to the digital tool. The boundary between private and public has been challenged by digital tools. Social actors can resist, e.g., by non-compliance in using the digital calendar, thus increasing their sense of agency. Additional features include the ability to combine different media and develop practices that are not directly offered by the design of the tool. The digital tool both widens the agency of the actors, e.g., in keeping a great deal of information connected to one meeting, and delimits it, e.g., in sometimes rendering individuals helpless to what they see in their own calendars.

    Abstract [sv]

    I dag jobbar många hemma eller på resande fot, och allt färre har ett fast skrivbord. Hur påverkar det förutsättningarna för kommunikationen? Hur ser kommunikationen ut jämfört med arbetsplatser där man fortfarande har eget skrivbord? I den här artikeln tar några språkvetenskapliga forskare från Stockholms universitet upp aktuella fynd från olika forskningsprojekt om kommunikation i arbetslivet.
