Abstract [en]

Johanna Sundman (2015). Varför andra tycker att ditt språk inte duger: En kvalitativ studie om språkattityde (Why your languages isn’t good enough for other people: A qualitative study about languages attitudes).Independent Project, Swedish, Independent Project, Specialization in Grades 4-6, Second Cycle, 15 Credits. School of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences.

Debates about linguistic correctness has been going on since the time when we barely had a common language to speak of. What is considered bad language or correct language depends on whom you are speaking to and the situation in which the communication occurs. We all have different attitudes towards language, whether a person is aware of it or not. Therefore it is important to make yourself aware of these attitudes, especially if you are a teacher, because they may affect the way you value the language of your students.The aim of this study is to shed light on different attitudes towards specific language markers in the debate of linguistic correctness, focusing on written languages. The study is based on a phenomenological theory and uses both phenomenography and qualitative text analysis to build categories about languages attitudes. The material consists of one part where I have used both public and private texts, and one part of qualitative interviews where I have had both teachers and students as informers. The result shows that our attitudes differ depending on the function and aim of the communication. Some may say that if people can make themselves understood then that is enough, and the way we use our language is a way of expressing ourselves. Others claim that a common standardized language protects our cultural heritage and democracy.
