    Being a Participant Matters: Event-Related Potentials Show That Markedness Modulates Person Agreement in Spanish2019In: Frontiers in Psychology, ISSN 1664-1078, E-ISSN 1664-1078, Vol. 10, article id 746Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study uses event-related potentials to examine subject-verb person agreement in Spanish, with a focus on how markedness with respect to the speech participant status of the subject modulates processing. Morphological theory proposes a markedness distinction between first and second person, on the one hand, and third person on the other. The claim is that both the first and second persons are participants in the speech act, since they play the speaker and addressee roles, respectively. In contrast, third person refers to whomever is neither the speaker nor the addressee (i.e., it is unmarked for person). We manipulated speech participant by probing person agreement with both first-person singular subjects (e.g., yo...lloro *I...cry-1ST PERSON-SG") and third-person singular ones (e.g., la viuda...llora "the widow...cry-3RD PERSON-SG"). We also manipulated agreement by crossing first-person singular subjects with third-person singular verbs (e.g., yo...*llora "I...cry-(3RD PERSON-SG)") and vice versa (e.g., la viuda...*lloro "the widow...cry-1ST PERSON-SG"). Results from 28 native speakers of Spanish revealed robust positivities for both types of person violations, relative to their grammatical counterparts between 500 and 1000 ms, an effect that shows a central-posterior distribution, with a right hemisphere bias. This positivity is consistent with the P600, a component associated with a number of morphosyntactic operations (and reanalysis processes more generally). No negativities emerged before the P600 (between 250 and 450 ms), although both error types yielded an anterior negativity in the P600 time window, an effect that has been argued to reflect the memory costs associated with keeping the errors in working memory to provide a sentence-final judgment. Crucially, person violations with a marked subject (e.g., yo...*llora*I...cry-3RD PERSON SG") yielded a larger P600 than the opposite error type between 700 and 900 ms. This effect is consistent with the possibility that, upon encountering a subject with marked features, feature activation allows the parser to generate a stronger prediction regarding the upcoming verb. The larger P600 for person violations with a marked subject might index the reanalysis process that the parser initiates when there is a conflict between a highly expected verbal form (i.e., more so than in the conditions with an unmarked subject) and the form that is actually encountered.

    Changing expectations mediate adaptation in L2 production2019In: Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, ISSN 1366-7289, E-ISSN 1469-1841Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Native language (L1) processing draws on implicit expectations. An open question is whether non-native learners of a second language (L2) similarly draw on expectations, and whether these expectations are based on learners’ L1 or L2 knowledge. We approach this question by studying inverse preference effects on lexical encoding. L1 and L2 speakers of Spanish described motion events, while they were either primed to express path, manner, or neither. In line with other work, we find that L1 speakers adapted more strongly after primes that are unexpected in their L1. For L2 speakers, adaptation depended on their L2 proficiency: The least proficient speakers exhibited the inverse preference effect on adaptation based on what was unexpected in their L1; but the more proficient speakers were, the more they exhibited inverse preference effects based on what was unexpected in the L2. We discuss implications for L1 transfer and L2 acquisition.

    Changing Footings on 'Jacob's Ladder': dealing with sensitive issues in dual-role mediation on a Swedish TV-show2019In: Perspectives: studies in translatology, ISSN 0907-676X, E-ISSN 1747-6623, Vol. 27, no 5, p. 718-731Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This case study examines a Swedish TV interview with a Soviet pop singer in 1985 where the talk show host, who is both a trained interpreter and an experienced media journalist, acts as a dual-role mediator, interviewing and interpreting at the same time. The analysis is contextualized within the political and military relations between Sweden and the USSR in the 1980s. Theoretically, the study draws on ethics of interpreting, ethics of entertainment and the notions participation status or footing. A potential challenge for a dual-role mediator is that two different ethical stances are involved; here, ethics of entertainment (entertainment, comfort, culture value orientation) and ethics of interpreting (impartiality, neutrality, accuracy). These may clash, but the study claims that the different stances can also be used to the participants’ advantage. Here, the role of talk show host dominates over the role of interpreter, and interpreting ethics can be flouted and played with if it suits the purposes of the former. The study shows the complexity of dual-role mediation and emphasizes the need to take into account the perspectives of both of the involved roles in research on participants’ interaction and changes of footing.

    Children’s Literature2019In: The Routledge Handbook of Literary Translation / [ed] Kelly Washbourne, Ben Van Wyke, Routledge, 2019, p. 159-180Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Adults as well both can and do read children's literature, either together with children or without them, just like children and young adults can read diverse literary materials targeting adults. The origins of children's literature are often traced back to early modern educational books for boys and girls that taught religious virtues and good manners to the upper classes. Some kinds of topics are by many adults deemed to be especially difficult for children to deal with, such as books culminating in a suicide, since such a denouement would leave the reader without any hope for a change for the better. After some initial reflections on the translation of children's literature as a performative and multimodal practice, the chapter presents a series of examples of typical interventions that take place in the translation of children's literature regarding violence, religion, racism and sexuality.

    Collaborative actions in supervision meetings2019In: Klassrumsforskning och språk(ande): Rapport från ASLA-symposiet i Karlstad, 12-13 april, 2018 / [ed] Birgitta Ljung Egeland, Tim Roberts, Erica Sandlund, Pia Sundqvist, Karlstad: Karlstads universitet, 2019, p. 235-258Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, we study face-to-face meetings between students and supervisors, where the focus of the meeting is supervision of academic writing. The aim of the study is to examine how students and supervisors in Sweden and Finland collaborate in order to improve the students’ texts and to discuss academic writing. Using conversation analysis, we study videorecorded, naturally occurring interactions. Our analysis shows that supervisors and students perform a variety of collaborative actions, initiated by both students and supervisors, such as co-construction of turns, recycling of co-participants’ turns, telling of second stories, and joint production of text units. The findings of the study highlight that participation roles in the institutional interactions studied are complex and dynamic, and that the combination of both the students’ subject expertise and the supervisors’ academic expertise enable mutual understanding of the texts and topics under discussion.

    ”Det funkar men det är på annorlunda sätt”: Om att positionera sig som förmedlare av vårdinformation2019In: 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. 345-358Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hösten 2015 och våren 2016 utformade och distribuerade Stockholms läns landsting (SLL) ett informationsmaterial för asylsökande om vården i Stockholm på flera olika språk. Artikeln berör den specifika informationssatsning som SLL genomförde. Efter satsningen har SLL i ett samarbete med Stockholms universitet velat undersöka hur materialet och förmedlingen av det fungerade. Detta har skett inom ramen för ett samarbetsprojektet ”Att mediera information om vårdmöjligheter för nyanlända: Evaluering av SLL:s kommunikation 2015/16”.

    Syftet med denna artikel är att undersöka intervjuer om vårdinformation (alltså inte en medieringssituation per se) och visa hur roller och positioner konstrueras i samspel. Studien omfattar en topikanalys av intervjuer som vi kopplar till deltagarnas positionering under narrativa sekvenser. Genom att studera positionering under samtal menar vi att vi kan visa drag som utmärker sig i det interaktionella positioneringsarbetet, i relation till vårdkommunikation. Vi fokuserar här framför allt interaktionen under en intervju med en potentiell cultural broker.

    Fansubbing in subtitling land: An investigation into the nature of fansubs in Sweden2019In: Target, ISSN 0924-1884, E-ISSN 1569-9986, Vol. 31, no 1, p. 50-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fansubs (subtitles made by fans for fans) have become a global practice, and it is by now a fairly well-described phenomenon, particularly for fansubs of Japanese anime. However, for Sweden, which has a long and strong tradition of prosubs (commissioned professional subtitles), there have hardly been any studies of this increasingly prolific phenomenon. This paper seeks to remedy this situation by investigating 16 subtitled versions of ten english-language films. The analysis uses the FAR model of quality assessment and also investigates other aspects, such as creativity. The results show that there is great variety between the various fansubbed versions. On average, Swedish fansubs are found to be of lower quality, less adhering to norms and also more abusively faithful than prosubs. Moreover, the fansubs in this study are hardly creative at all. This could be due to fansubbing being a rather marginal phenomenon in Sweden, the land of subtitling.

    Funktionell textanalys2019Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den systemisk-funktionella grammatiken (SFG) har på senare år blivit alltmer populär i Sverige. Skrivdidaktiker och textforskare tilltalas av modellen och använder de grammatiska kategorierna i analyser och undervisning. Kanske kan detta förklaras av den starka förankringen i kontexten - SFG fungerar helt enkelt bra för att beskriva språk i sammanhang, liksom för att analysera hur språket är med och skapar sammanhang. Analysen är dock inte alltid enkel, utan kräver att man vänder och vrider på perspektiven. En bra hjälp är förstås att titta på andras analyser. Den möjligheten erbjuder denna bok.

    Bokens tre redaktörer har samlat sina erfarenheter av grammatisk analys av texter, och inleder bokens olika avdelningar med kapitel som tar upp dels grunderna i analysen, dels tänkbara problem och överväganden.

    I kapitlen analyseras många olika slags texter, till exempel reklam, platsannonser, elevinsändare, vigselordningar och styrdokument för skolan. Författarnas ambition är att ge en god inblick i hur den systemisk-funktionella grammatiken kan användas för att analysera texter. 

    Funktionell textanalys ges numera ut av Studentlitteratur AB. Denna andra upplaga innehåller dock inga förändringar av innehållet jämfört med den första upplagan.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter illustrates the outcomes of the first two semesters of university language instruction targeting the development of interactional competence (IC) in Chinese as a Foreign Language, with a specific focus on active listenership and topic management. IC is a crucial ability for both first language and second language (L2) speakers. The chapter also illustrates how Conversation Analysis (CA)-inspired learning outcomes for L2-Chinese have been identified and how the instructional materials have been structured following the IC pedagogical cycle suggested by A. M. Barraja-Rohan and elaborated by E. Betz and T. Huth. Conversation analysts are becoming increasingly concerned with the pedagogical implications of their findings. The students were required to write evidence-based, guided reflections in which they had to report on specific moments of their own interactions that went well and other moments that they perceived as problematic.

    Introduction2019In: Teaching and Testing L2 Interactional Competence: Bridging Theory and Practice, Routledge, 2019Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter focuses on current research on second language (L2) interactional competence (IC) and on its pedagogical implications. While research on L2 IC has been developing since the 1990s, the pedagogical implications of such research have hardly been discussed, and only a few attempts have been made to bridge the gap between research and practice with regard to the teaching of IC in the L2 classroom. It provides extended responses to the questions raised by both practitioners and researchers during the workshops and the symposium organized at the center. The chapter connects theoretical discussions on the concept of IC, empirical findings, potential pedagogical implications, and outcomes of actual research-based pedagogy primarily in the first two years of university L2 instruction. It addresses this important challenge, either directly or indirectly, whereas the section on testing provides readers with the most comprehensive analysis of actual implementations of testing procedures that incorporate the co-constructed nature of interaction in general and IC in particular.

    Introduction: voice, ethics and translation2019In: Perspectives: studies in translatology, ISSN 0907-676X, E-ISSN 1747-6623, Vol. 27, no 5, p. 639-647Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although previous research on ethics demonstrates growing awareness that many agents or subjectivities besides translators and interpreters are involved in translation and interpreting processes, the consequences of this multiplicity for thinking about ethics in translation still lacks focused attention. In this introduction, we show how this special issue, titled Voice, Ethics and Translation, reduces this gap by highlighting the concept of voice and the idea that the world of translating and interpreting consists of many voices ‘having a say’. This carries with it the potential for negotiation, conflict and dissent regarding what constitutes good and bad translation and interpreting practice. The nine contributions discuss questions such as whose voices are involved in ethical negotiations, what is the nature of these negotiations, who has more power to have their voices heard, and whether translators and interpreters should be given more trust and responsibility. As evinced by these various contributions, a consensus seems to be emerging to the effect that rather than blindly following outside authorities in ethical matters, translators and interpreters need to be encouraged to independently reflect on a variety of voices on ethics and be actively conscientious and responsible in actual translation and interpreting situations.

    Abstract [en]

    The article presents a study of cognitive verbs used by Sweden-Swedish and Finland-Swedish students and supervisors in academic supervision meetings. The data consist of naturally occurring interactions. The meetings are conducted in Swedish at universities in Sweden and Finland. The results show that the amount and proportion of cognitive verbs are higher in the Sweden-Swedish data. In both data sets, supervisors use more cognitive verbs than students. However, the Finland-Swedish students use more cognitive verbs than the Sweden-Swedish students. The results also show smaller differences as regards the emphasis on certain semantic fields and the usage of specific cognitive verbs.

    Kollegial stöttning genom auskultation - ett sätt att utveckla ett akademiskt lärarskap2019In: Högre Utbildning, ISSN 2000-7558, E-ISSN 2000-7558, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 78-84Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Auskultation kolleger emellan beskrivs ofta i högskolepedagogisk litteratur som en lämplig metod för kollegial utveckling av lärarroll och undervisningspraktik. Formerna för auskultationerna varierar och själva genomförandet kan vara förknippat med vissa problem som t.ex. tidsåtgång, olika förväntningar och osäkerhet gällande återkoppling. I den här artikeln presenterar vi ett kollegialt utvecklingsprogram med en modell för auskultationer som vi har skapat och genomfört i ett lärarlag på en språkinstitution vid Stockholms universitet. Vi presenterar dels själva modellen med särskilda mallar för auskultation, återkoppling och kollegiala samtal, dels diskuterar vi styrkor och svagheter med modellen. Erfarenheten av genomförandet visar att auskultationer med stöd av mallar fungerar bra och kan leda till fördjupat kollegialt utbyte. Samtidigt är kostnad, lärarnas motivation att delta samt förhållningssätt vid framförandet av återkoppling på kollegernas undervisning några inverkande faktorer på hur väl ett program av detta slag fungerar.

    Language background affects online word order processing in a second language but not offline2019In: Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, ISSN 1366-7289, E-ISSN 1469-1841, Vol. 22, no 4, p. 802-825, article id PII S1366728918000573Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines possible crosslinguistic influence on basic word order processing in a second language (L2). Targeting Swedish V2 word order we investigate adult German learners (+V2 in the L1) and English learners (-V2 in the L1) of Swedish who are matched for proficiency. We report results from two offline behavioural tasks (written production, metalinguistic judgements), and online processing as measured by event-related potentials (ERPs). All groups showed sensitivity to word order violations behaviourally and neurocognitively. Behaviourally, the learners differed from the native speakers only on judgements. Crucially, they did not differ from each other. Neurocognitively, all groups showed a similar increased centro-parietal P600 ERP-effect, but German learners (+V2) displayed more nativelike anterior ERP-effects than English learners (-V2). The results suggest crosslinguistic influence in that the presence of a similar word order in the L1 can facilitate online processing in an L2 - even if no offline behavioural effects are discerned.

    Language barriers and the use of professional interpreters: a national multisite cross-sectional survey in pediatric oncology care2019In: Acta Oncologica, ISSN 0284-186X, E-ISSN 1651-226XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Healthcare personnel are responsible for providing patient-centered care regardless of their patients' language skills, but language barriers is identified as the main hindrances providing effective, equitable and safe care to patients with limited proficiency in a country's majority language. This study is a national multisite cross-sectional survey aiming to investigate communication over language barriers in pediatric oncology care. Material and Methods: A survey using the Communication over Language Barriers questionnaire (CoLB-q) distributed to medical doctors, registered nurses and nursing assistants at six pediatric oncology centers in Sweden (response rate 90%) using descriptive statistical analyses. Results: Professional interpreters on site were the most common solution when using an interpreter, although relatives or even children were used. The use of professional interpreters on site differed among the professions and in different clinical situations, such as medical encounter, education or procedure preparation. All professions reported that the use of professional interpreters greatly increased care relationships, patient safety and patient involvement in care. Conclusions: Healthcare personnel seem to believe that professional interpreters are crucial when caring for patients and family members who do not speak the majority language, but there is an obvious discrepancy between this belief and their use of professional interpreters.

    Language use and investment among children and adolescents of Somali heritage in Sweden2019In: Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, ISSN 0143-4632, E-ISSN 1747-7557, Vol. 40, no 1, p. 64-75Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores language use and investment among Somali-speaking children and adolescents in Sweden, through group interviews and survey data. Our findings indicate that there are incentives to invest in Somali language learning considering the reported language use patterns and the expressed positive attitudes towards Somali mother tongue instruction. The Somali language was perceived to be ‘naturally’ linked to Somali identity and to being able to claim ‘Somaliness’, not only by the adolescents but also by the surroundings. Thus, advanced Somali language proficiency was perceived as necessary for being able to pass as ‘culturally authentic’ (Jaffe, A. [2012]. “Multilingual Citizenship and Minority Languages.” In The Routledge Handbook of Multilingualism, edited by M. Martin-Jones, A. Blackledge, and A. Creese, 83–99. London: Routledge). Furthermore, being perceived as unproficient in Somali or unable to transmit the language to future generations was experienced as guilt-provoking. Nevertheless, the adolescents articulated a compliance with the dominant linguistic order in Sweden, and their school’s assimilatory language rules (‘Swedish-only’). This compliance was associated with good manners and moral behaviour, thus reflecting the potentially harmful and pervasive nature of assimilatory language ideology and policy for individual students. The findings exemplify in many ways the struggles it entails to maintain and develop a minoritised language in a majority language context and the complex ‘ideological enterprise’ of language learning with its educational and ethical dilemmas.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Probing the Internal Validity of the LLAMA Language Aptitude Tests2019In: Language learning, ISSN 0023-8333, E-ISSN 1467-9922Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past decade, the LLAMA language aptitude test battery has come to play an increasingly important role as an instrument in research on individual differences in language development. However, a potentially serious problem that has been pointed out by several scholars is that the LLAMA has not yet been carefully validated. We addressed this issue by examining the internal validity of this test battery. We collected LLAMA data from 350 participants and assessed these data using classical item analysis, Rasch analysis, and principal component analysis within a framework of best practices in educational and psychological test validation. The results show that only one out of the four subtests (LLAMA B) produced scores that fit a latent trait model with sufficient accuracy. This suggests that researchers using the LLAMA battery must treat their results with appropriate carefulness and also that there is potential for refining the LLAMA further.

    Prosodically controlled derivations in the mental lexicon2019In: Journal of Neurolinguistics, ISSN 0911-6044, E-ISSN 1873-8052, Vol. 52, article id 100856Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish morphemes are classified as prosodically specified or prosodically unspecified, depending on lexical or phonological stress, respectively. Here, we investigate the allomorphy of the suffix -(i)sk, which indicates the distinction between lexical and phonological stress; if attached to a lexically stressed morpheme, it takes a non-syllabic form (-sk), whereas if attached to a phonologically stressed morpheme, an epenthetic vowel is inserted (-isk). Using mismatch negativity (MMN), we explored the neural processing of this allomorphy across lexically stressed and phonologically stressed morphemes. In an oddball paradigm, participants were occasionally presented with congruent and incongruent derivations, created by the suffix -(i)sk, within the repetitive presentation of their monomorphemic stems. The results indicated that the congruent derivation of the lexically stressed stem elicited a larger MMN than the incongruent sequences of the same stem and the derivational suffix, whereas after the phonologically stressed stem a non-significant tendency towards an opposite pattern was observed. We argue that the significant MMN response to the congruent derivation in the lexical stress condition is in line with lexical MMN, indicating a holistic processing of the sequence of lexically stressed stem and derivational suffix. The enhanced MMN response to the incongruent derivation in the phonological stress condition, on the other hand, is suggested to reflect combinatorial processing of the sequence of phonologically stressed stem and derivational suffix. These findings bring a new aspect to the dual-system approach to neural processing of morphologically complex words, namely the specification of word stress.

    “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.

    Revisiting the bilingual lexical deficit: The impact of age of acquisition2019In: Cognition, ISSN 0010-0277, E-ISSN 1873-7838, Vol. 182, p. 45-49Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Whereas the cognitive advantages brought about by bilingualism have recently been called into question, the so-called ‘lexical deficit’ in bilinguals is still largely taken for granted. Here, we argue that, in analogy with cognitive advantages, the lexical deficit does not apply across the board of bilinguals, but varies as a function of acquisition trajectory. To test this, we implement a novel methodological design, where the variables of bilingualism and first/second language status have been fully crossed in four different groups. While the results confirm effects of bilingualism on lexical proficiency and processing, they show more robust effects of age of acquisition. We conclude that the traditional view of the linguistic costs of bilingualism need to give way to a new understanding of lexical development in which age of acquisition is seen as a major determinant.

    I denna artikel redogör vi för några utmaningar som parterna ställs inför i kartläggningssamtal med nyanlända elever där flerspråkig skolpersonal fått i uppdrag att tolka. Analyser av transkriberade och översatta sekvenser ur fem videoinspelade samtal visar att den flerspråkiga skolpersonalens pedagogiska kompetens i mycket liten utsträckning utnyttjas under samtalen och att deras avsaknad av tolkkompetens kan begränsa elevens möjligheter att visa sina kunskaper. Det får konsekvenser inte enbart i form av att elevens svar kan komma att återges på ett missvisande sätt utan även genom att kartläggarens samspel med eleven påverkas.

    Sveriges språkflora: Handbok för ett flerspråkigt samhälle2019Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Det talas smånga språk i Sverige idag, med de flesta av oss vet nästan ingenting om merparten av dem. Kan man se skillnad på arabiska och persiska? Åt vilket håll skrivs somaliska? Var talar man (ny)arameiska? Talas samma teckenspråk överallt i världen?

    I den här boken presenteras fakta om drygt 40 av de språk som talas i Sverige, tillsammans med information om översättnig, tolkning, flerspråkighet och språkpolitik. Det handlar förstås om invandringsspråken, men också om de främmande språk vi lär oss i skolan och om de nationella minoritetsspråken. Det finns många goda skäl att öka sina kunskaper om språken. Om du är till exempel läkare eller lärare och ska beställa tolk kan du behöva veta vilka språk som talas i Eritrea eller om kurdiska är ett språk eller flera. Du som är kommunikatör eller formgivare och ska arbeta med informationsinsatser på olika språk kan behöva känna till hur man undviker praktiska misstag när man hanterar språk med annan skrivriktning än vänster till höger elller annan teckenuppsättning än den latinska.

    Det här är en handbok för den som arbetar i det flerspråkiga Sverige. Men det är också en bok för den som bara är road av språk i största allmänhet och intresserad av den svenska språkfloran.

    Switch-reference and Insubordination in Ngarla (Ngayarta, Pama-Nyungan)*2019In: Australian Journal of Linguistics, ISSN 0726-8602, E-ISSN 1469-2996, Vol. 39, no 2, p. 174-201Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the switch-reference system of Ngarla (Ngayarta, Pama-Nyungan) is described in detail. Switch-reference is shown exclusively to occur in non-restrictive relative clauses. There are three sets of suffixes marking switch-reference, tense being distinguished with same subject marking. The so-called 'naturalness assumption' regarding the association between SS/DS marking and simultaneous/sequential ordering is shown to hold true in certain contexts. However, it may also be violated. Switch-reference marked constituents that form part of noun phrases are also discussed, as well as insubordinate uses (in Evans' 2007 sense) of the switch-reference suffixes, and marked and unmarked switch-reference clauses.

    Task-Completing Assessments in Service Encounters2019In: Research on Language and Social Interaction, ISSN 0835-1813, E-ISSN 1532-7973, Vol. 52, no 2, p. 85-103Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines positive low- and high-grade assessments in service encounters between customers and salespersons conducted in Swedish and recorded in Sweden and Finland. The assessments occur in a regular sequential pattern as third-turn moves that complete request-delivery sequences, longer coherent requesting sections, or request sequences in a pre-closing context. The positive valence of the assessments coheres with the satisfactory outcome of task completion, but their function is primarily pragmatic, used for segmenting the flow of task-oriented institutional interaction. The assessments stand as lexical TCUs, and their delivery is characterized by downgraded prosody and the speaker's embodied shift away from the other. The analysis reveals distributional differences in the interactional practice: Customers produce task-completing assessments more often than the salespersons, and high-grade assessments are more frequent in the data from Sweden than from Finland. The data are in Sweden Swedish and Finland Swedish with English translations.
