    Förstärkande språkstrategier: En kvalitativ studie som beskriver fyra lärares förstärkande språkstrategier ur ett andraspråksperspektiv2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since no teacher can learn all the languages of the world there is a need to find strategies to deal with students with different linguistic competences and conditions. In this essay, which I write under the Swedish teacher program at Örebro Univiersity, I will follow four teachers into their practice and search for tools they use to increase their chances to reach through to students in the Swedish middle school with Swedish as their second language. Using ethnographic and qualitative research methods I will present data from a video recorded material followed by an analysis based on a second language perspective. The material consists of video recordings from four different occasions where the teachers' initial and instructional monologues get caught. By using a multimodal approach my hope is to identify commonly occurring phenomena and describe how the differences in the use of these take place. I ask the following questions: • Are there any strategies that teachers use to clarify or strengthen their language teaching Swedish as a second language? •    If there are, how do the teachers use them?

    Observation Schedule and categories are designed through the findings the film has provided and have come together in four main categories that are: body language, reformulations, repetitions and visual aids. From these categories data is gathered and the data shows how frequently these phenomena occur and how they are combined. In the result I discuss different sequences from the films that show examples that I find interesting with a descriptive purpose. In this essay I want to describe how a few Swedish teacher works through the linguistic barrier that the differences in competence in the same language cause.

    Laughing Knives: Satire in the English Classroom2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to promote the use of satirical content in the English classroom.This study provides an analysis of three interviews with English teachers in the upper secondary school. The analysis compares earlier research with the findings from the interviews. Interview answers show through real experiences that satirical content may help students become more engaged, not only in learning English but in other social and cultural issues as well. Teachers will have to fight their insecurities about satire in order to use satirical content to its fullest potential. However, it is concluded that satire has a great potential in the English language classroom because of the number of advantages it can provide.

    Pseudo-parliamentary discourse in a communist dictatorship: dissenter Parvulescu vs. dictator Ceausescu2010In: Journal of Pragmatics, ISSN 0378-2166, E-ISSN 1879-1387, Vol. 42, no 4, p. 924-942Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a case study of an unprecedented political event that occurred in Romania during the Communist dictatorship. In 1979, at the 12th Congress of the Romanian Communist Party, Constantin Parvulescu, a high-ranking party official, took the floor unexpectedly and attacked the dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. We examine the contrasting interaction patterns displayed during the open confrontation that occurred between Parvulescu's accusatory anti-Ceausescu discourse and the subsequent anti-Parvulescu discourses of three of Ceausescu's close political allies glorifying Ceausescu and the Communist party. In order to enable it better understanding of the political and socio-cultural setting of the Communist party congress proceedings, as well as of the concrete implications of sequencing and simultaneity of speech, interpersonal behaviour and shifts in speech targeting, a multimodal approach has been integrated with a discourse-analytical approach. These two combined approaches were used to examine the videotaped event and to account for the overall picture of the interaction, which consists of verbal interaction, kinesic behaviour (such as gestures, facial expressions, body posture), as well as the use of space. The analytical focus has been on the challenging and aggressive uses of multiple audience-targeted illocutionary acts and perlocutionary effects, the strategic uses of personal pronouns and the manipulative uses of semiotic metaphors, (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V.

    Smilisen på IRC: :) :P :(2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att ta reda på hur vanligt förekommande smilisen är generellt på en chatt och vilka sorter som används. Som ett komplement till detta vill jag även ta reda på om enskilda personer använder många smilisar och hur många sorter dessa representerar.

    Först redogör jag för tidigare forskning på området och då främst när det gäller ickeverbala signaler och deras motsvarande chattstrategier. Dessutom kategoriserar jag smilisar generellt efter orientering, föreställning, funktion och variation och får på detta sätt en grund att stå på i materialanalys och diskussion. Som motivering till mitt materialval har jag även placerat in olika chattar i tre olika kategorier: parinriktade, gruppinriktade och virtuella världar.

    Mitt material består av sju dagars loggar från IRC-kanalen #Sweden och omfattar sammanlagt 16582 faktiska inlägg. För att inte påverka resultaten har jag insamlat detta i rollen som spion.

    Det jag kommer fram till är att smilisar förekommer i 14,5 % av inläggen. Dessa är orienterade både som liggande och stående med en klar övervikt på den förra. Alla tre föreställningar är representerade men föremål och händelser står bara för 1 % av totalen. Även samtliga funktioner används men bara i orienteringen liggande. Slutligen har också variationen av de liggande smilisarna visat sig vara stor.

    Resultaten komna ur analyser av tre chattare visar sig vara ett bra komplement. En mycket aktiv chattare visar sig endast använda ett fåtal smilisar av ett mycket litet antal sorter. Mindre aktiva chattare använder däremot en större andel smilisar.

    Smilisen har alltså visat sig vara ett vanligt och ett värdefullt komplement till den reella texten. Den liggande smilisen är till synes helt klart användbarast då den är både enkel att skriva och lätt att förstå. Jag tycker mig också ana att de smilisar som används oftast kan förknippas med genrestilen medan de som endast förekommer sällsynt snarare är tecken på personlig stil.

    Slutligen argumenterar jag för chattens och sålunda också smilisens fortsatta överlevnad.

    Patient information leaflets - patients' comprehension of information about interactions and contraindications2005In: Pharmacy World & Science, ISSN 0928-1231, E-ISSN 1573-739X, Vol. 27, no 1, p. 35-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: To determine how well patients could correctly recognize and comprehend the various information items on patient information leaflets, and to explore the reasons underlying poor comprehensibility. METHODS: Leaflets from 30 randomly selected, commonly prescribed medicines were examined by experts using protocols to evaluate leaflet layout, language and content. The same leaflets were also evaluated by patients who had their medicines dispensed at 24 randomly selected Swedish pharmacies. A questionnaire was used for the patients' examination. RESULTS: The results showed that most information on the leaflets is sound and is well comprehended by the patients. For two information items regarding 'risks of interactions' and 'contraindications' the patient scores were low, indicating poor comprehensibility. CONCLUSION: Leaflets with low scores on warnings of interactions and contraindications were found to deliver more complex messages to older patients as compared to leaflets with high scores for these items.

    Attityder till alternativa pronomen: En studie om lärarstudenters attityder till pronomenen en och hen2018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här studien undersöks vilka attityder blivande lärare har till orden hen och en. Orden kan sägas vara en produkt av språkaktivism, vilket innebär att de skapats eller används i anti- diskriminerande syften. Undersökningen omfattar dels en digital enkätundersökning, där lärarstudenter från olika delar av Sverige erbjudits att deltaga, och dels en e-postintervju, där frivilliga respondenter från enkäten ställt upp. I enkäten skulle studenterna uppskatta hur ofta de använder pronomenen hen och en som alternativ för mer traditionella pronomen, huruvida de som inte använder det ofta eller alltid kunde tänka sig att börja göra det och hur de upplever ordens värdeladdning. I e-postintervjun fick de besvara fyra öppna frågor om hur de använder orden och varför de väljer att göra det, alternativt varför de väljer att inte göra det.

    Resultatet visar att lärarstudenterna generellt sett har pronomenen som en del av sitt  ordförråd, men använder dem i olika utsträckning. Majoriteten av de som inte använder pronomenet hen ofta, uppger att de kan tänka sig att använda det mer frekvent, medan en jämförelsevis mindre del kan tänka sig att använda pronomenet en mer frekvent. Generellt sätt upplever respondenterna även orden som neutrala i sina värdeladdningar, även om resultatet skiljer sig mellan olika användargrupper. Intervjusvaren visade att benägenhet att börja använda pronomenen mer frekvent beror på användarens uppfattning om fenomenen tvåkönandes och androkönandes existens.

    Resultaten diskuteras sedan i relation till ett attitydbegrepp, där resultatet förstås genom att delas i attityders tre komponenter. Slutsatsen av diskussionen är att de blivande lärarna har en relativt god attityd till pronomenet hen, men en något mer återhållsam attityd till pronomenet en.

    Fonologiska svårigheter hos barn: En studie om hur olika yrkesgrupper kan arbeta med detta2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    I dagens samhälle är det viktigt att kunna kommunicera verbalt med olika personer i olika situationer och sammanhang. För de flesta så är detta inget större problem, men om man har svårigheter med talet som exempelvis stamning, pratar otydligt eller inte kan säga vissa språkljud, så kan det vara ett hinder för att föra ett samtal. Vi har fått intresse för fonologiska svårigheter genom verksamhetsförlagd utbildning och i vardagen där vi mött barn som på olika sätt har haft problem med sitt språkande. Där av har vi intresserat oss för hur olika yrkesgrupper i en viss kommun arbetar för att hjälpa barn som har fonologiska svårigheter. Vi vill undersöka hur termen språkstörning definieras och om respondenterna upplever att det finns en "vänta och se – mentalitet" gällande språksvårigheter. Med detta menar vi att pedagoger kan arbeta förebyggande eller vänta in barnets mognad, för att se om svårigheterna försvinner av sig självt. Denna inväntningsstrategi visade sig vara vanligare för 10-15 år sedan medan man idag arbetar man mer förebyggande. För att nå fram till våra resultat så har vi intervjuat sju personer som är verksamma inom yrken där man jobbar med barn som har språksvårigheter. Vi har delvis inspirerats av ett fenomenologiskt synsätt, då om hur olika personer i specifika yrkesgrupper uppfattar fenomenet fonologiska svårigheter. Vi vill även ta del av våra respondenters praktiska och teoretiska erfarenheter i ämnet. Genom intervjuerna har vi fått insikt i hur komplext fenomenet språksvårigheter är, eftersom barnet utvecklas och mognar olika snabbt i olika åldrar. Likaså har vi sett hur arbetet och samarbetet ser ut i denna kommun, då respondenternas utsagor stämmer väl överens med varandras och de fyller i varandras berättelser om hur arbetsgången fungerar dem emellan. Vi har också fått insikt i hur de olika yrkesgrupperna jobbar med barn som har fonologiska svårigheter. Vi har även fått reda på att det finns olika benämningar beroende på vilken språksvårighet barnet har.

    Med denna examinationsuppgift önskar vi kunna bidra med kunskap om fonologiska svårigheter till personer inom olika yrkeskategorier, som arbetar med barn.

    Elevers läs- och skrivsvårigheter: Ett problem eller en utmaning?2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta arbete var att undersöka hur några lärare upplever och hanterar undervisningssituationen med elever som har läs- och skrivsvårigheter.

    Vi har med hjälp av olika forskare sammanställt en historisk tillbakablick som handlar om människors uppfattning om elever med läs- och skrivsvårigheter under de senaste 150 åren. Vi har också med hjälp av olika forskare belyst möjliga bakomliggande orsaker till läs- och skrivsvårigheter. Därefter har vi, i en personlig kvalitativ intervju, undersökt hur sex lärare i år 1-4 uppfattar fenomenet.

    I resultatet sammanfattas de intervjuade lärarnas svar, uppdelade under våra respektive forskningsfrågor. Vår uppfattning är att lärarna upplever och hanterar undervisningssituationen med elever som har läs- och skrivsvårigheter på ett bra sätt och att detta grundar sig på att ingen av de sex lärarna upplever situationen som ett problem - utan som en utmaning.

    Native Swedish Speakers’ Problems with English Prepositions2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay investigates native Swedish speakers’ problems in the area of prepositions. A total of 19 compositions, including 678 prepositions, written by native Swedish senior high school students were analysed. All the prepositions in the material were judged as either basic, systematic or idiomatic. Then all the errors of substitution, addition and omission were counted and corrected. As hypothesised, least errors were found in the category of basic prepositions and most errors were found in the category of idiomatic prepositions. However, the small difference between the two categories of systematic and idiomatic prepositions suggests that the learners have greater problems with systematic prepositions than what was first thought to be the case. Basic prepositions cause little or no problems. Systematic prepositions, i.e. those that are rule governed or whose usage is somehow generalisable, seem to be quite problematic to native Swedish speakers. Idiomatic prepositions seem to be learnt as ‘chunks’, and the learners are either aware of the whole constructions or do not use them at all. They also cause some problems for Swedish speakers. Since prepositions are often perceived as rather arbitrary without rules to sufficiently describe them, these conclusions might not be surprising to teachers, students and language learners. The greatest error cause was found to be interference from Swedish, and a few errors could be explained as intralingual errors. It seems as if the learners’ knowledge of their mother tongue strongly influences the acquisition of English prepositions.

    Sambandet mellan tal- skriftspråk - lärares val av strategier.2008Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

     

    Sammanfattning

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att belysa hur lärare i år 1 ser på sambandet mellan tal- och skriftspråk. Genom kvalitativa intervjuer med två lärare och genom observationer i deras klasser har vi sett vilka strategier lärarna använde sig av i sin undervisning. Genom dessa har vi kunnat studera betydelsen av lärarnas val av strategier för elevernas möjligheter till språkutveckling. Tidigare forskning påpekar vikten av att tal- och skriftspråk utvecklas i samband men även att språket utvecklas i sociala sammanhang där kommunikation har en central roll. Vi har genom vår studie fått fram att lärarnas synsätt kring detta har stor betydelse för deras val av strategier och det har i sin tur betydelse för elevernas språkutveckling.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to analyse how the imagery functions in C. S. Lewis's novels The Magician's Nephew and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to elucidate Christian truths. This will be done by discussing Lewis's own concept of evoking Christian truths by using imagery, and by focusing on this imagery as it is expressed in animate images, inanimate imgaes and imagery magic.

    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this study is to investigate a connection between pupils’ self-confidence and

    extramural English. This is a quantitative survey study made among 37 fifth-graders in the

    Aland Islands, where a group of pupils were given questions about how they feel about

    English as a subject in school, and particularly about spoken English. There were also

    questions about their exposure to English at home. The results of the survey show that there is

    a connection between confidence and extramural English. Especially among the pupils

    playing computer games, the result shows that they are more self-confident when speaking

    English than the pupils who do not play computer games.

    Abstract [en]

    This study of Swedish advertising, and the language in its advertisements in particular, has two main purposes. One is to investigate the language and structure of ads, and seek to explain why ads have these exist. A second purpose is to investigate the continuity and change in the language and structure of ads.

    An ad consists of a number of elements. The main verbal element is called copy. The term headline is used for the main headline of an ad. Ads almost invariably also have a logotype, and more often than not a slogan placed near this logotype. This slogan is here called a payoff. The term used in this study for something final, e. g., a whole ad, is utterance, a Bakhtinian term.

    Starting with 1975 and ending with 2007, the material holds considerable variation. Swedish ads from the late 70´s and early 80´s display both long copy and documentary photography. Proportions between ad elements change during the investigated period of time.

    Accepting the presupposition that ads have the purpose of persuading their readers, it´s likely that most or possibly all of their features are meant to play a part in that persuasion. This will include the ways in which ads speak to their readers. Part of the investigation deals with this by looking at how pronouns, questions, and urges are used. Also, humour is an internalized part of contemporary advertising. This was established before 1975 and is a common feature of the Golden Egg Awards ads.

    Discourses meet in ads, in order to make ads more trustworthy. This explains borrowing from discourses like science and journalism. There is one further main reason for ads to use traits from other discourses: intimacy. Private life has had more impact on advertising and advertising language than any other discourse.

    What are analog bulletin boards used for today?: Analysing media uses, intermediality and technology affordances in Swedish bulletin board messages using a citizen science approach2018In: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 13, no 8, article id e0202077Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Analog bulletin boards are omnipresent in Swedish urban areas, yet little systematic knowledge about this communication medium exists. In the shadow of the rapid emergence of digital media the analog bulletin board has received less attention than its digital successors, many of them having incorporated similar functionality with novel technical solutions. In this study we used a citizen science method to collect 1167 messages from bulletin boards around Sweden aided by school children and teachers, with the purpose of shedding new light on what is communicated on the boards, by whom, using what types of technologies and in what way the messages refer to other media. Results show that the most common messages are invitations to events, such as concerts, lectures and sports events, followed by buy-and-sell ads for goods and services. The most frequent sender is an association, for example NGOs, sports associations or religious communities. Almost half of the sampled messages were professionally printed, about forty per cent were made by home printers. Only six per cent of the messages were handwritten, almost exclusively by private persons as senders. Moreover, we show how the analog bulletin board has adapted to recent changes in media technology—a media landscape which is saturated with electronic- and mobile media. Further, the bulletin board still holds a firm place in a media ecology where local communication is in demand, and exists in parallel with electronic media. Close to forty percent of the messages contained hyperlinks to web pages and we found (and removed for anonymization purposes) more than six hundred phone numbers from the dataset.

    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to examine the potential of some popular computer games for second language improvement and curriculum goal achievement in grades 4-6, more specifically language development in terms of listening, writing, hearing and speaking. The study also focuses on children's own thoughts and awareness of computer games and language improvement. The study combines three different methods, firstly I have conducted a survey in two middle school classes and secondly, I interviewed four middle school children.Thirdly, I played the games myself in order to analyze the language learning potential of the games. The results showed that each game has some potential and can offer some positive results for second language learning. However, none of the games showed potential in all four language development categories. The study also showed that the children are aware of their language use when they play games.

    Förhandlares kommunikativa kompetens2006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The subject of this study is language use in negotiations and the communicative competence of professional negotiators. The aim of the study is to make explicit the communicative competence through analysis of language use in four areas: levels of action, topical structure, meta-communication, and coherence. Negotiation ability has been identified and studied within a theoretical framework of linguistic pragmatics, outlined by participant perspective orientated and functional pragmatics, and by a socio-pragmatic perspective on joint action. Linguistic data have been analysed as parts of an activity type, a concept concerned with the connection between language use and the overall activity of which language forms a part.

    The data consist of a role play, dealing with an interstate diplomatic issue of monetary compensation after an environmental incident. The role play was performed by five different groups, with a total of twenty participants: ten Swedish and ten Russian negotiators. Two of the role plays were performed by well-experienced negotiators, and three role plays by participants without such experience. Three main variables have been used for comparison: experience, participant nationality and the assigned position of the negotiation. The data have been analysed both with quantitative and qualitative methods.

    Results show that competence is generally indicated by the special ways professional negotiators use communicative projects, create phase structures, and organize topics in local turns-of-talk and globally in the talk. Competence is also indicated by meta-communication, which is used for constructing participant roles and authority, as well as global coherence, all of which contribute to a formal level of interactive style. The interplay of power is performed within a frame of good relations, which is maintained in interaction. Professional negotiators seem to be aware of the importance of creating a common ground in interaction. What aspects contribute to the construction of a common ground can be based on a general premise that awareness and experience combine to create the main rationale for a person to act in a correct way. The results entail a professional network practice over-arching linguistic and cultural systems, where general norms of the activity type of negotiation are combined with specific institutional norms. Negotiators’ national background has however not appeared significant.

    Abstract [sv]

    Sedan 1963 har det vid olika universitet i Sverige och Finland regelbundet anordnats sammankomster för svenskans beskrivning. Vid dessa har forskningsresultat som rör svenska språkets uppbyggnad och användning presenterats och diskuterats.

    Den trettioförsta sammankomsten ägde rum i Umeå den 20-21 maj 201. Konferensens tema var "Perspektiv på skrivande", vilket belystes i plenarföredragen samt i de workshoppar som hölls i samband med konferensen. De olika sektionsföredragen berörde en bredd av ämnen, som samtalsanalys, genreanalys, språkkontaktfenomen och svenskämnet i högskolan. I denna volym publiceras två av plenarföredragen och 29 av sektionsföredragen.

    Som värd för konferensen stod Institutionen för språkstudier vid Umeå universitet.

    Annan-orientering i masskommunicerande brevtexter: en tentativ modell2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to operationalise the concept of other-orientation. Based on an explorative approach, a tentative model for analysing the marks of other-orientation is developed. The model consists of four grammatical and pragmatic categories in language: deixis, speech acts, modality, and evaluative words. The process of finding out the significant marks in each category and develop a model has been an interplay between a thorough linguistic coding, an interpretative, evaluating reading, and abductive reasoning in a step-by-step process.

    Theoretically the study is based on dialogism. From this perspective, the very fact that human nature is social indicates that other-orientation is a constituent component in every communicative act. For that reason, the challenge has not been to prove that other-orientation exists in texts, but to explore how a text is made interactive, contextual, dynamic and other-oriented by means of grammatical and pragmatic selectives such as words, phrases, and clauses.

    The data consists of eight personally addressed mass communication letters about everyday matters. Each text has its model reader in a readers’ collective. Consequently the language in the texts is construed to form a dialogue between an in-text writer and reader that share the same context, although the distance between the real writer and reader is crucial.

    One result of the study is the model as such, another the analyses in which the functions of other-orientation related to the four categories are presented. Moreover, the linguistic analyses show differences between texts and readers’ collectives. Texts aimed at large anonymous collectives generally feature a direct address singular you, a high rate of positive evaluative words, more responsive speech acts, and some more potential modality. In texts aimed at a small familiar collective, there is an "I" or a "we" addressing a collective "you". There are not as many evaluative words but more assertions without any evaluation or modality.

    When it comes to other-orientation, the categories of deixis and speech acts tend to be of greater importance compared to modality and evaluative words. It makes a difference if you address a reader with a singular or collective "you" and if you choose to interact with responsive speech acts or informative statements. These contrast ways to address a reader are of importance for the construction of genre and say a great deal about other-orientation in texts.
