    Community building from a distance2011Ingår i: Edulearn11, Barcelona, 2011, s. 2295-2304Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This presentation is concerned with communication in an online learning environment and attempts to shed light on community building strategies used by students in the asynchronous online discussion forums. The material for this study was collected from text-based asynchronous discussion forums which constituted part of the compulsory course work for a course in English proficiency at second semester university level in Sweden. The students were divided into three separate groups and all three had the same course material and were taught by the same instructor. The instructor had no discussion forum input besides the initial instructions for how the students were expected to use it. The students’ task was to ask questions and answer others’ questions. Instructor feedback was given at a later date in a seminar. All three groups had other course activities, such as real time seminars, besides the discussion forums. Two of the groups studied online exclusively while the third group studied had their real time seminars in the same physical environment on campus. In order to determine how and to what extent students used community building devices in their communication, Lapadat’s (2007) model of discourse devices used for community building was adapted. The study revealed that disclosure, asking for and offering help, inviting comment and alignment were used by all three groups. There were however discourse devices used for building community the two online groups used but that were not used by the campus group, that is, the group that met in the same physical environment for seminars. Those that studied on campus rarely used greetings, social remarks and nor did they employ closings adapted from the genre of letter writing and email. All three of these were commonly used by participants in the exclusively online groups.

    Getting a Response to Discussion Thread Messages in an Online Learning Environment2011Ingår i: International Conference on Information Communication Technologies in Education, Rhodes, Greece, 2011Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the challenges of using discussion forums in a computer-mediated learning environment is getting students to contribute. Some discussion threads develop while others do not. The present study concerns factors affecting response rate. This presentation deals with response patterns and the strategies that teachers and students may consider using in order to increase the chance of getting a response to a message posted in an asynchronous discussion forum.

    Language and interaction in online asynchronous communication in university level English courses2015Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Interaction involves people communicating and reacting to each other. This process is key to the study of discourse, but it is not easy to study systematically how interaction takes place in a specific communicative event, or how it is typically performed over a series of repeated communicative events. However, with a written record of the interaction, it becomes possible to study the process in some detail. This thesis investigates interaction through asynchronous written discussion forums in a computer-mediated learning environment.

    In particular, this study investigates pragmatic aspects of the communicative event which the asynchronous online discussions comprise. The first case study examines response patterns to messages by looking at the content of initial messages and responses, in order to determine the extent to which characteristics of the messages themselves or other situational factors affect the interaction. The second study examines in what ways participants use a range of discourse devices, including formulaic politeness, humour and supportive feedback as community building strategies in the interaction. The third study investigates the role of the subject line of messages in the interaction, for example by examining how participants choose different types of subject lines for different types of messages. The fourth study examines to what extent features serving a deictic function are drawn on in the interaction and then compares the findings to both oral conversation and formal academic discourse.

    The overall findings show a complex communicative situation shaped by the medium itself, type of activity, the academic discipline and topic of discussion and by the social and cultural aspects of tertiary education in an online learning environment. In addition, the findings may also provide evidence of learning.

    Managing the multiplex2011Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Much of online learning has consisted of text-based communication, but as broadband connections improve and become more widespread, the promise of multimodal synchronous communication becomes a real possibility for many language teachers and learners and not just a dream. Being informed and prepared and developing skills that can be adapted and applied in different situations can help prevent the dream of multimodal teaching and learning from becoming a nightmare. The technical issues that arise may not always be the hindrance we might imagine but in fact may contribute to a stronger sense of social presence and contribute to learning outcomes. Polychronic communication (multicommunicating) is described as “managing multiple conversations at once within a given time period” (Turner & Tinsley, 2002). Multicommunicating is made possible by technologies which have features that allow interactions to be compartmentalised in a way that f2f or telephone cannot do and therefore allowing for flexibility in tempo. There are two features of multicommunicating are divided attention and delayed responses. (Turner &Tinsley 2008). However, other features are also present. Compartmentalisation means the text chat does not interrupt the oral conversation.

    Students' questionnaire-based views on teacher feedback on their writing2016Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    A large part of what instructors to at university is give feedback on the written work of students. This is particularly true for those teaching languages and the process of reading and responding in writing a time-consuming process. The feedback given can concern aspects of language proficiency, sentence structure, grammatical correctness and lexical choice. Feedback is often given on content and textual issues such as paragraphing, effectiveness of arguments and level of critical analysis. As teachers, we hope that he feedback will result in an improvement in the student's revised work but also other subsequent written work. This paper investigates how one cohort of ESL univeristy students experience teacher feedback. The responses of this questionnaire-based survey show that students appreciate the feedback they get but do not always understand what it is they are expected to to.

    Subject line preferences and other factors contributing to coherence and interaction in student discussion forums2013Ingår i: Computers and education, ISSN 0360-1315, E-ISSN 1873-782X, Vol. 60, nr 1, s. 172-183Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    A number of factors may affect student interaction in an asynchronous online discussion forum used in learning. This study deals with student preferences for the subject line of messages and in what ways the choice of subject line contributes to coherence and interaction reflected in the textual and interpersonal functions of the linguistic items used. The study also attempts to determine what affects the choices made by participants. Nine separate discussion forums from three different undergraduate courses in English at a Swedish university were used in the study. A total of 98 students and 435 student messages were examined and a number of trends appeared. The functions of the subject line may be summarized as contributing to coherence by reflecting message content in a number of different ways. In addition, the subject line can perform other tasks such as maintaining social relationships among the participants. It is not clear in what ways the subject line contributes to interaction with regard to increasing the reading rate. The trends observed indicate that other factors than subject line content may contribute to whether students are inclined to access a message or not, such as when a message is posted and where it is displayed on the screen.

    Creating Space: An Investigation into the Metaphoric Significance of the Physical Environment in J.D. Salinger's Franny and Zooey2009Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Communication between characters in the novel begins in an established shared common space but soon spreads out in different constellations and mediations, only to climax at the point where language is abandoned and listening is discovered. The drone of the dial tone at the end of the novel is the depiction par excellence of what Salinger is trying to communicate about prayer. It is in the immanence of opening up to the world that all space finds its source, all people their common divine heritage and meaning. Salinger not only elaborates the issues of the primordial state in metaphysical terms, he also structures the narrative in a way that illustrates aspects of experience spatially. He achieves this by dwelling on the importance of posture, gesture, and spacial awareness, and contrasts it with the use of language as a mediator of meaning. Not only does he posit reoccurring physical objects with symbolic meaning, but he also incorporates objects and spaces, such as the telephone, as agents of juxtaposed lines of metaphysical investigation. His observations are not necessarily arranged in a logical fashion, rather they exist together in a world where they are encountered by the reader in a way that most closely mimics the workings of a holistic system. Investigation can essentially begin with any object as its point of departure, since they ultimately work together to lead the reader to the idea of a common underlying horizon.

    Txtng as a replacement for standard written English: an attitude survey based on Age and Gender2011Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Text messaging is a new form of writing, brought about by technological development in the last couple of decades. Mobile phone usage has increased rapidly worldwide and texting is now part of many people's everyday communcation. A large number of users send or receive texts which include some abbreviations and shortenings, commonly referred to as textspeak. This novel linguistic phenomenon is perceived by some with indifference and by others with aggravation. The following study examines attitudes towards this linguistic change from a gender and age perspective. The comparison between two groups show that the most conservative and least positive to change are young women. The analysis and discussion around this focuses on power, prestige and patterns.

    Where do Swedish Senior High School students learn most of the English that they know?: Swedish senior high school students’ beliefs about learning English outside the classroom versus inside the classroom2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to investigate Swedish senior high school students’ Extramural English (EE) activities and their beliefs about learning English inside and outside of the classroom. EE is defined as English language activities that learners are engaged in outside the classroom, and includes activities such as listening to music, reading, writing, speaking, surfing the Internet, playing computer games, watching TV, YouTube and movies (Sundqvist, 2009, p. 1). The study also investigated possible gender differences related to students’ reported EE activities, and their reported attitudes about English.

    This study is based on questionnaire data. Twenty students participated in this study. 9 of 10 participants indicated that they believed that they are learning most of the English they know outside of school by daily contact with popular EE activities such as listening to music, followed by surfing the Internet, reading, watching YouTube, watching TV, playing computer games, writing, speaking and lastly watching movies. Boys reported a greater exposure to EE overall compared to the girls, more specifically, in their contact with music, computer games and writing and speaking in an EE context. Most of the students reported positive attitudes to English both inside and outside the classroom, but overall students reported more positive attitudes to the English that they use in their free time. The study has found no strong gender differences concerning students’ attitudes to learning English.

    Novel or Conventional?: A Comparison of Metaphorically Used Words in Football Headlines in Two British Newspapers2019Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to examine metaphorically used words in the football headlines of two British newspapers, The Guardian and The Mirror. The research questions are: What proportion of the total number of words are metaphorically used in football headlines in The Guardian and The Mirror? What differences are there in frequencies of conventional and novel metaphors in the headlines? What differences are there in frequency of conventional and novel metaphors between The Guardian and The Mirror? The material consists of a total of forty headlines, twenty from each of the two newspapers, collected from the football section of their respective website. To locate and identify metaphors, the method Metaphor identification procedure (MIP) was used. To determine the conventionality of the identified metaphors the Oxford English Dictionary. The results showed that neither newspaper used novel metaphors in the selected data, and that The Guardian headlines tended to contain conventional metaphors to a greater extent compared to The Mirror.

    Methods for teaching English vocabulary in a multilingual classroom – challenges and benefits: An interview study with English teachers in grades 7-92016Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (yrkesexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden has over the last few decades increasingly become a multilingual society, with the result that many Swedish classrooms are multilingual and multicultural. This study investigates how compulsory school teachers, in a number of schools in a county in central Sweden work with multilingual students’ vocabulary development in English. It also explores the teachers’ attitudes towards working with these students. A qualitative interview study with semi-structured questions was carried out with six English teachers teaching in years 7-9, at four schools in three different cities in the same county. The study shows that the teachers use the target language, English, more when they teach a multilingual class and explain more words in English. Nevertheless, according to the results, Swedish still plays an important role in the EFL classroom, which can be challenging for those with insufficient Swedish skills, especially when using Swedish textbooks and glossary lists. Based on these results, further research regarding how to raise multilingual awareness and how to teach English without relying on Swedish as the common, first language of the classroom, is recommended.

    Aspects of Liminality in Eilis Ni Dhuibhne's The Dancers Dancing2004Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I refer Eilis Ni Dhuibhne’s narrative construction of the main characters and the theme of the novel The Dancers Dancing, in the context of the anthropologist Victor Turner’s concept of liminality. Thus the summer in the Gaeltacht that five teenage girls experience, can be understood as a depiction of the liminal phase in a rite of passage. Ni Dhuibhne’s differently constructed characters enlighten different aspects of liminality and through the céilí dance their experiences are exposed. Furthermore this essay suggests that Julia Kristeva’s notion of the chora, which can be associated to dance, is also relevant when describing the unbounded and unlimited process that radically can reform social structures. I conclude that the liminal space offers an area of many possibilities. It functions as a free zone where the main characters can freely explore their personal issues that trouble them, or the difficulties of their own society.

    Speak Good English Movement in Singapore: Reactions in Social and Traditional Media2011Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The first Speak Good English Movement, SGEM, took place in 2000, and has been organized annually ever since. Speaking a “standard” form of English is considered to bring increased personal power. However, the SGEM wants the Singaporeans to use “standard” English in their private life as well. A decade after the beginning of the campaign, a Speak Good Singlish Movement was started. Based on studies of language and identity, it is understandable why some Singaporeans might feel the SGEM threatens their identity. However, the reactions towards the campaign are mainly positive. For the purposes of this analysis, Twitter messages, Facebook pages, and newspaper articles from The Straits Times were collected. The SGEM has hailed both direct and indirect praise and criticism in both social and traditional media: Five newspaper articles praise the campaign while five criticize it; the results are nine and seven respectively for social media. This thesis looks at reactions towards the SGEM in both social and traditional media, analyzes how these reactions might relate to the ideas of the power of language, its variety and the relation of language and identity.

    'Standard English' as spoken in Shetland's capital2011Ingår i: World Englishes, ISSN 0883-2919, E-ISSN 1467-971X, Vol. 30, nr 2, s. 166-181Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with the local accent of Standard English spoken in Lerwick, the main town or capital in the Shetland Islands, in contrast to previous research on Shetland speech which focused on the local Scots dialect, commonly referred to as 'Shetland dialect'. The account is based on data collected for a phonological study, in which a judgment sample of bidialectal, middle-aged, middle-class speakers was obtained through a network model. It is also informed by data collected in an earlier regional survey, as well as observations made over a ten year period. An analysis is presented of systemic, distributional and realizational aspects of the vowel and consonant systems. It may be concluded that the accent displays a number of localized features, especially regarding phonetic realization, but also standardized features, including various consonant contrasts and the lexical distribution of phonemes. An overview is also provided of grammatical and lexical features, which further supports the suggestion that the speech accounted for constitutes a form of (Scottish) Standard English.

    The pronunciation of Scottish Standard English in Lerwick2009Ingår i: English world-wide, Orkney College, Scotland, 2009, Vol. 28, s. 1-21Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research on Shetland speech has not explicitly dealt with speech forms leaning towards Scottish Standard English (SSE) but has focused on Shetland dialect, the local Scots dialect. This paper argues that a local accent of SSE can be identified in Shetland, especially for speakers in Lerwick, the largest town in Shetland. The accent has not been previously fully described, and this paper presents an analysis of systemic, distributional and realizational aspects of the vowel and consonant systems, based on data from a recent survey (Sundkvist 2004). It is suggested that the Lerwick accent displays a phonemic inventory and lexical distribution similar to that commonly reported for mainland accents of SSE, with the exception of a somewhat larger inventory of vowel phonemes. At the level of phonetic realization, the Lerwick accent shares several features with mainland varieties of SSE, but displays a number of localized features in addition.

    Extramural Gaming and English Language Proficiency: The potential benefits of extramural gaming as a tool for learning English2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Today the majority of children and teenagers in many countries spend a great deal of time doing extramural English activities, where playing games is included. It is therefore important to study how extramural English activities affect students’ proficiency. This thesis aims to investigate how games as an extramural activity, and extramural English activities in general could benefit upper secondary EFL and ESL students’ English language proficiency. The method used was that of a systematic literature review where six studies from varying places and with participants of varying ages and levels of education were analyzed and compared. The results show that five of the articles found a positive correlation between time spent on extramural English activities and English grades and/or vocabulary, while on study showed that there was no correlation between time spent on extramural English activities and development of academic vocabulary in students who had already reached a high level of proficiency. More research is needed in the field, particularly studies establishing causation rather than just correlation, longitudinal studies, as well as studies investigating whether gender is an important factor affecting the potential benefits of extramural English activities.

    Games and Extramural Gaming in the Classroom: Teachers’ Perspectives on How They Perceive and Use Games and Extramural Gaming in the Upper Secondary Classroom2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    An increasing amount of people play games in their spare time, especially children and teenagers. Several studies have shown a positive correlation between gaming and ESL grades. It is therefore important to examine how teacher perceive and use games and extramural gaming in their classrooms, which is the aim of this thesis. In order to fulfil this aim, the research questions "how and to what extent are games used in the classroom", "how and to what extent is gaming as an extramural activity used in the classroom" and "what attitudes do teachers have towards using games or extramural gaming in the classroom" were used. Data was gathered using a mixed-methods design with a questionnaire and interviews. The questionnaire was distributed to 53 Swedish ESL teachers (47 of which completed the entire questionnaire), and three Swedish ESL teachers were then interviewed to provide further information. The results showed that games are not used in these teachers’ Swedish EFL classrooms, and students’ interest in games as an extramural activity is only used to a very small extent in their classrooms. The participating teachers’ attitudes were mildly positive to the possibility of students learning from games, and positive to the possibility of student becoming more interested if games were used or referenced in education. However, teachers could generally not see themselves using gaming to their advantage, and many claimed not to know how they would use games or their student’s extramural gaming in the classroom. This suggests a lack of knowledge among the teachers, and a need for further education on the subject so that the full potential of this increasingly popular extramural activity can be taken advantage of in the classroom.

    Perceptions of extramural English and English in the classroom: Swedish upper secondary students’ writing, reading, listening and speaking skills2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines, through the use of a quantitative questionnaire, to what extent Swedish upper secondary students are involved in receptive and productive extramural English activities and what their perceptions are of learning English inside and outside of school. Extramural English (EE) is a term referring to the English students encounter outside school as

    extra means ‘outside’ and mural means ‘walls’. This study also investigates if the students perceive that the extramural English activities facilitate their classroom learning of English, and more specifically in relation to the language proficiencies reading, listening, writing and speaking. The results showed that the students reported being involved in mostly receptive EE activities as the most common activities they reported being involved in daily were related to listening and reading. The listening activities involved watching English-language TV-programs, TV-series and movies with and without Swedish subtitles and reading English texts. 98% of the students perceived that they do learn English outside of school while 68.6% of the students perceived that the English that they learned outside school facilitated classroom learning. The language proficiency the students perceived they developed most outside school was listening as 39% reported they "developed very much". The majority of students also reported to be more comfortable speaking and writing in English outside of school, and 57% indicated that they have learned most of their English knowledge outside of the school environment.

    English as Lingua Franca: A Perspective from Korean English Teachers and Students2019Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, Korean English teachers and students were surveyed to gain insight onto their perspectives on the targets and goals of the language education model in high school. 30 students and 18 teachers from high schools in a rural province in the country responded to a questionnaire, with both quantitative and qualitative questions, on their use of English, English varieties, and their views on English as a lingua franca. The results indicate that both groups welcome changes and diversity in English in theory, while in practice they are concerned and reluctant because of the perceived implications of language correctness on their important scholastic examinations. This study draws a comparison to a previous study by Elina Ranta (2010) in Finnish upper secondary schools in Finland

    Constructions of transcultural subjectivity: Going beyond nationalism and ethnicity in A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain2013Ingår i: Transcultural Identities in Contemporary Literature / [ed] Irene Gilsenan Nordin, Julie Hansen, Carmen Zamorano Llena, Amsterdam: Rodopi, 2013, s. 93-112Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Published sixteen years after the end of the Vietnam War, Robert

    Olen Butler’s Pulitzer-winning short-story cycle A Good Scent from

    a Strange Mountain (1992) is an imaginative attempt by a Euro-

    American writer to come to terms with the consequences of the armed conflict

    for the many thousands of Vietnamese refugees who emigrated to, and

    settled in, the USA during and after the conflict. The stories dramatize the

    internal and external conflicts that the predominantly Vietnamese-American

    protagonists experience owing to their cultural and national relocation as firstgeneration

    immigrants, or due to their cultural and ethnic hybridity as secondgeneration

    immigrants. This essay aims to show how both the form and central

    theme of the volume can be understood not only as a negotiation between

    American and Vietnamese identities, but also as going beyond the compulsion

    to identify self and other along national and ethnic lines. It will argue that

    Butler’s text transcends national and ethnic determinations by imagining a

    transcultural subjectivity, according to which characters can enjoy something

    close to mutual understanding. As will be shown, this transcultural transcendence

    takes place on different levels in the text: on the level of the characters,

    on the level of the narrators, and on the level of the author. Thus, the text

    itself can be seen as an example of transculturality in the sense that the author

     crosses cultural boundaries in order to imagine and narrate his stories from a

    Vietnamese-American perspective.

    Hur kan språklärare utforma undervisning som motiverar elever att läsa på ett andra- eller främmande språk? En forskningsbakgrund2017Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Läsförståelsen bland svenska grundskoleelever har enligt internationella kunskapsmätningar gradvis sjunkit sedan millennieskiftet. Trots en liten uppgång i 2015 års PISA-undersökning ligger resultaten för läsförståelse bland svenska 15-åringar en bra bit under 2000 och 2003 års nivåer. Vi vet också att likvärdigheten mellan elever såväl som skolor ökar, och att skolans socioekonomiska sammansättning har fått ökad betydelse för elevernas resultat. Men frågan är vad dagens grundskolor gör för att motverka denna trend? Samtidigt som vi vet att det bästa sättet att förbättra sin läsförmåga är att läsa mer råder stor okunskap om hur omfattande elevers läsning inom ramen för skolarbetet faktiskt är och hur läsundervisningen går till.  

    För att besvara dessa frågor har jag tillsammans med kollegor på Högskolan Dalarna, Uppsala universitet och Umeå universitet påbörjat ett större forskningsprojekt som syftar till att utveckla mer kunskap om grundskolans läspraktiker i åk 6 och 9. Jag själv kommer särskilt undersöka den läsning och läsundervisning som sker på engelska och inom ramen för engelskämnet, sakprosa såväl som skönlitteratur.  I ett första steg håller jag på att gå igenom tidigare didaktisk forskning inom området läsundervisning på ett andra- eller främmande språk. I min presentation ger jag en kort sammanfattande rapport av vad jag hittills funnit av relevans i tidigare svensk och internationell forskning inom detta område.
