    Digital Technology and Chinese as a Foreign Language: Tools for teachers and learners2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Technology is playing an increasingly important role in language education, and today most teachers of Chinese as a Foreign Language (CFL) probably embrace at least a few digital tools to enhance their work. In this workshop, an overview will first be presented of a range of digital tools currently used in CFL teaching and learning, such as Adobe Connect, Adobe Presenter, online language learning sites and apps on smart phones. The workshop then proceeds to a structured discussion on these tools; common practices, further possibilities, and potential problems will be considered, drawing partly on the participants’ own experiences.

    Perception of Lexical Tones by Swedish Learners of Mandarin2016In: Proceedings of the joint workshop on NLP for Computer Assisted Language Learning and NLP for Language Acquisition at SLTC, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press , 2016, Vol. 130, p. 33-40p. 33-40Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Models of cross-language perception suggest that listeners’ native language plays a significant role in perceiving another language, and propose that listeners assimilate non-native speech sounds to similar sounds in their native language. In this study, the effect of native language on the perception of Mandarin tones by Swedish learners is examined. Swedish learners participated in an identification task, and their performance was analyzed in terms of accuracy percentages and error patterns. The ranking of difficulty level among the four lexical tones by Swedish listeners differs from that found among English native listeners in previous studies. The error patterns also reveal that Swedish listeners confuse Tone 1 and 2, Tone 3 and 4, and Tone 2 and 4, the first two pairs rarely being confused by English listeners. These findings may be explained with the assimilation account: Swedish learners assimilate Tone 3 and 4 to Swedish pitch accents, thus they exhibit a unique pattern when perceiving the tones in Mandarin.

    Perception of Tone 1-Tone 2 Contrast by Swedish Learners of Mandarin Chinese2019In: Proceedings from FONETIK 2019 / [ed] Mattias Heldner, Stockholm, 2019, Vol. XXVII, p. 7-12Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Little research has been carried out on the perception of tones by Swedish listeners previously. This study examined the perception of Mandarin tones by Swedish learners, with the focus on Tone 1-Tone 2 contrast. In addition to the four-alternative identification task, a two-way identification task with Tone 1-Tone 2 continua of stimuli with incrementally varied pitch contour was also carried out. The results show that Tone 1 and Tone 2 are more challenging for Swedish learners to identify correctly than the other two tones. Among Swedes who can identify Tone 1 and Tone 2 with a high accuracy score, native speakers of Swedish perceived the fine tonal variations differently from native Chinese speakers. The syllable duration is found to affect the perception of tone contrast, especially for Swedish learners. Possible auditory enhancement accounts for the effect of the duration are offered to explain the Swedish learners’ performance.
