    Collage etnolingüístico en la poesía mapuche2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study has the goal to analyze the strategy used by the Mapuche poets so called collage ethno-linguistic and to reveal how it is used by their authors. Given that we will analyze poems in which its authors are Mapuche, we want to investigate whether their own worldview, culture and religiosity is reflected into the poem.

     

    For this purpose we will analyze three poems written by the Chilean Mapuche poets in order to have the proper overview of their lyrical poetry. Those poems are “Huida”, by Maribel Mora Curriao, “Quila” from Pedro Alonzo Retamal, and “Desde aquí” from the poet Jaqueline Caniguán.  On the other hand we will also inquire into other papers of several researchers that have studied the ethno-literature, such as Iván and Hugo Carrasco Muñoz and the paper written by the researcher Maria Ester Greve  in order to support our investigation.

     

     

    Key words: ethnolinguistic collage, Maribel Mora Curriao, Pedro Alonzo Retamal, Jaqueline Caniguán, Mapuche poetry, world view, Mapuche religiosity.

    "Språket fick jag inte med mig som liten": unga meänkielibrukares samtal om språkbevarande i sociala medier2021In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 42, no 4, p. 32-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Young members of minoritized linguistic communities often face a situation of double marginalization. On one hand, many communities have struggled to maintain their languages due to oppression and assimilation politics, which often leads to a language shift. On the other hand, many uoung members also experience a language purism within the community, mostly from older generations, criticizing the young members' linguistic practices and language skills. This paper explores how young Tornedalians, Kvens and Lantalaiset use social media as an arena for metapragmatic reflexions on minority language learning and Meänkieli maintenance. Drawing on data from the social media platform Instagram, this paper examines the role of Meänkieli in young peoples' life and identity. The paper also explores how social media can contribute to create community among young Tornedalians, Kvens and Lantalaiset.

    Afrocolombianos: Un retrato estereotipado en dos series televisivas colombianas.2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [es]

    Los afrocolombianos viven en tiempos cambiables, donde su estatus étnico depende de varios aspectos como la estructura social, la percepción pública y la visibilidad dentro del sector televisivo que vacila entre una visión progresista, la aspiración de progresar hacia adelante y tener una mente abierta por un lado, y por el otro, conservadora y tradicional.

    Esta ambivalencia se produce en ambas series, debido al retrato diverso de los afrocolombianos donde en PE la esterotipación de Kiko y Caín aparece automáticamente, mientras que en HDC, se la narra mediante la reproduccion de expresiones verbales y de la cultura como un intento de distinguirlo de los demás.

    El lado conservador y tradicional a veces es significativo, puesto que estos aspectos impiden la representación de los afrocolombianos de manera diferente en las producciones televisivas contemporáneas. Kiko y Caín de PE por ejemplo, son retratados de forma estereotipada por medio de un contexto religioso. La religiosidad en sí misma no es estereotipada, pero se utilizan en la serie como una herramienta para reforzar las características negativas de los personajes. Su ridiculez y personalidad como menos listos, así como algunos de los comentarios y hechos reflejados en las escenas analizadas, contribuyen a la imagen estereotipada. Asimismo, el hecho de que son sicarios delincuentes además aumenta esta percepción.

    En contrapartida, Luis Andrés de HDC es retratado de una forma más positiva y modesta, siendo una persona tierna, inteligente y de alguna manera exitoso. Esta imagen de él, se ve reforzada por la ternura que muestra al cuidar a su mamá. Lo único estereotípico sería su alegría y espontaneidad, la pasión mostrada hacia la música afrocolombiana, y que repetitivamente se le es referido como el “Negro”, en lugar de su nombre verdadero, lo cuál podría interpretarse como un intento de deshumanizar y hacerle inferior a los demás.

    A lo largo del trabajo hemos resaltado que el discurso estereotípico es cambiable y que el término en sí mismo es problemático, porque las evaluaciones y los atributos casuales que se le asignan a la persona estereotipada, ya sean positivos o negativos, se basan en las normas cambiantes de la sociedad. Nos referimos con eso a que existan dos categorías de estereotipos, donde el primero en mayor grado crea curiosidad e interés hacia este grupo de personas. Por otro lado, este último crea una imagen y percepción despectiva del grupo de personas objeto del estereotipo, lo que también crea pensamientos negativos de los que es difícil deshacerse.

    Hemos demostrado que el retrato de los afrocolombianos sigue siendo estereotípico en algunos aspectos en las series observadas. De lo contrario, ha sido posible distinguir matices donde la imagen ha sido a favor para ellos. En cuanto al discurso lingüístico, no ha sido posible situar a los afrocolombianos en un contexto estereotípico específico. En algunos aspectos de las series analizadas hemos podido observar acciones despreciativas a través de de la terminología y expresiones verbales que podrían ser estereotipadas, pero no mediante los dialectos lingüísticos.

    Finalmente, la imagen estereotipada que se da de una persona es una de las causas principales de una visión despreciativa y por ende racista, con lo cual las producciones televisivas empeñan un rol importante en cambiar esta percepción pública. En este aspecto, el establecimiento cultural y por lo tanto el sector cinematográfico en Colombia, podría funcionar como un enlace en cuanto a la preservación y desarrollo de una visualización diferente de los afrocolombianos. Al aumentar la visibilidad de personalidades afrocolombianas reconocidas en el espacio televisivo, tanto actores de cine como artistas y personalidades culturales, estas pueden ayudar a crear recursos normativos y mejorables y de esta manera cambiar la imagen estereotipada de los afrocolombianos.

    De som kunde kommit före oss: En inblick i den historiska romanen genom en karaktärsanalys av Jan Guillous Brobyggarna och Vilhelm Mobergs emigrantepos.2024Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I aim to study the concept of the historical novel through a character analysis of four novels by Vilhelm Moberg: UtvandrarnaInvandrarna, Nybyggarna and Sista brevet till Sverige; and one by Jan Guillou: Brobyggarna. These novels all portray characters of great determination and grit, although the ones created by Jan Guillou tend to also have qualities moe commonly associated with superheroes. 

    To support my thesis, I use Georg Lukács´The Historical Novel, in which he defines what constitutes a well written historical novel. I have also researched how the two authors view their own works, with special emphasis on their claims to write truthfully, since one om Lukács main points is that the historical novel must be — not truthful — but realistic. 

    In the analysis I compare the characters from the different works with each other to see how they fit into Lukács´ definition of the historical novel. I make a point out of Guillou´s characters being a bit too perfect for them to be realaistic, while Moberg´s characters seem more alive and honest in their quest for a better life. Guillou seems to write his characters as representants of specific historical movements. I then open up for a discussion about the key characteristics of the characters in a historical, and attempt to explain why they have to be written in such a way.

    Förskollärares tankar om tvåspråkighet: En studie om likheter och skillnader från två samhällen med olika språk villkor2012Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta examensarbete handlar om förskollärares tankar och attityder till tvåspråkighet när det gäller att anpassa den pedagogiska verksamheten utifrån tvåspråkiga barns behov. Det handlar även om att jämföra likheter och skillnader mellan förskollärare som kommer från två samhällen med olika språkvillkor. Examensarbetet fokuserar mest på tvåspråkighet med inriktning på finska och svenska. För studien gjordes intervjuer med sju informanter varav sex var förskollärare och en var förskolechef. De förskollärare som deltog i studien var både en- och tvåspråkiga och kom från två olika samhällen; ett samhälle i Sverige där majoritetsspråket är svenska och det andra var ett samhälle i Tornedalen där de två majoritetsspråken är finska och svenska. En slutsats som drogs av studien är att samtliga av studiens informanter, oavsett i vilken kommun de arbetade och om de själva var tvåspråkiga, såg positivt på tvåspråkighet och ansåg att det är bra för barns senare utveckling att vara tvåspråkiga. En annan slutsats var deras pedagogiska anpassning utifrån tvåspråkiga barns behov. I Tornedalen fokuserade de mer på att barnen skulle lära sig svenska eftersom finskan dominerade både i hemmet och i samhället. Det kunde anses som en problematik för barnen om de inte hade lärt sig att behärska det svenska språket innan de börja skolan. En annan skillnad var att man i det andra samhället i Sverige använde sig mer av hemspråksundervisning för att utveckla barns tvåspråkighet, men i Tornedalen hade man i varje avdelning en förskollärare eller barnskötare som behärskade både finska och svenska.

    That’s funny!: The humorous effect of misappropriating disciplinary-specific semiotic resources2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The socialization of disciplinary outsiders into an academic discipline has been described both in terms of becoming fluent in a disciplinary discourse (Airey, 2009; Airey & Linder, 2009; Northedge, 2002) and achieving disciplinary literacy (Airey, 2011, 2013; Geisler, 1994). In this paper we investigate disciplinary boundaries by documenting the responses of academics to a semiotic disciplinary hybrid. The hybrid we use is the Physikalisches Lied, a bogus piece of sheet music into which disciplinary-specific semiotic resources from the realm of physics have been incorporated to humorous effect.

    The piece is presented to three distinct disciplinary focus groups: physicists, musicians and a group of academics who have had little contact with either discipline. In order to elicit disciplinary responses that are free from researcher prompts, each focus group is first asked the simple, open-ended question What do you see here? Once discussion of this question is exhausted the focus groups are asked to identify as many puns as they can—essentially all the disciplinary items that they feel have been misappropriated—and to attempt to explain what this means from a disciplinary standpoint. The differences in the responses of the three groups are presented and analysed.

    We argue that semiotic material focused on by each of the three groups and the nature of the explanation offered, provide evidence of the degree of integration into the disciplines of physics and music. Our findings shed light on the process of becoming a disciplinary insider and the semiotic work involved in this process.

    Applying Cognitive Linguistics: Preposition Acquisition in an ESL Context with Arabic Learners2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Teaching prepositions in the context of English as a foreign language (ESL) can be particularly challenging. The present research explored the ability of Arabic-speaking students to understand and use prepositions and examined the efficacy of using cognitive linguistics to train them on the for and to prepositions. The study was conducted through an online survey, the delivery of a pretest to the willing participants, the supply of the cognitive linguistics activities and traditional training activities, and the delivery of posttests to assess the participants. 16 participants agreed to participate in the study. A comparison of the average values of their pretest and posttest scores revealed that they performed better on the posttests, with the group that took the cognitive linguistics activity showing better improvement. The Mann Whitney U Test showed that the improvements were statistically significant for both groups. The findings demonstrate that cognitive linguistics produces better language acquisition among non-native speakers of English than traditional approaches and should be used in the teaching of English prepositions.

    Abstract [sv]

    Abstrakt

    I denna uppsats skrivs en nutida version av Charles Dickens verk En julsaga. Texten kommer att utspela sig under 2000-talet, det blir alltså ett miljöbyte genom tidsresan, inte rent geografiskt. Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka om genren och huvudkaraktärerna kan bevaras när miljön förändras och om den nya texten bibehåller formen av en saga. Inledningsvis har jag läst En Julsaga och sedan valt tre scener och av dem skrivit en nutida version.

    Högläsning i skolan ur ett specialpedagogiskt perspektiv2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to investigate how reading aloud is organized in the class-room and if the teachers made any adaptations for students with reading comprehension difficulties. Three teachers and two special education teachers were interviewed about their views on reading aloud and adaptations. Two students were interviewed about their experiences of listening to read-alouds. The results of the study showed that the students appreciated to listen to their teachers reading aloud and to take part in conversations about the text. The teachers who had been educated by Skolverket, Läslyftet, used comprehension strategies during the reading aloud lessons and found the strategies to be a good adaptation for the students with comprehension problems. The special education teachers mostly worked with students with word- reading difficulties. They did not use read-alouds and comprehensions strategies in their teaching. The study also indicate the importance of implementing research in education.

    Abstract [en]

    Around 2007, several self-proclaimed norm-critical publishing companies were established in Sweden. This caused a long debate in the daily press, where some critics compared the ”norm-critical” books to propaganda. The debate indicates a conflict between an aesthetic and a didactic approach to children’s literature. Another lively debate with similar critique took off when Kivi & Monsterhund (Kivi and Monsterdog, 2012) by Jesper Lundqvist and Bettina Johansson was published – a picturebook where the protagonist is referred to by a gender-neutral prounoun. The purpose of this article is to problematise the prevailing view on self-proclaimed norm-critical children’s literature and its didactic relationship to the reader. The reception, the paratexts, and the book itself are analysed using Torben Weinreich’s and Clémentine Beauvais’ different definitions of didactics, Gérard Genette’s view on pararatexts, Maria Nikolajeva’s theories on picturebooks, and Judith Butler’s view on gender as performative. The book, and its didactic relationship to the reader, is found to be much more complex and conflicting than suggested by the reception and the paratexts.

    Graden av konventionalisering i andraspråkselevers användning av bildliga uttryck2021Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här studien undersöks andraspråkselevers användning av bildspråk i den egna produktionen. Studien bygger på elevtextanalyser där texterna som analyseras är skrivna av arabisktalande andraspråkselever i kurs 1 och kurs 2 i svenska som andraspråk på gymnasiet. Syftet med studien är att undersöka i vilken mån andraspråkselever använder bildliga uttryck i sina texter och vad de uttrycken som används har för konventionaliseringsgrad, det vill säga graden av idiomatik i användning. Studien syftar även till att undersöka om de bildliga uttrycken som används kan vara lån från förstaspråket. Resultatet visar att bildliga uttryck förekommer i andraspråkselevers texter och utgör 7,65% av textmaterialet. Den vanligaste typen av bildspråk i materialet är metaforer; idiom förekommer däremot i en väldigt liten utsträckning och utgörs alltid av modifieringar som oftast beror på fel användning av preposition. Detta ger en bild av att prepositioner utgör en svårighet vid inlärning av relativt fasta fraser som idiom. Utifrån resultatet har jag även funnit att helfrasinlärning kan vara en bra utgångspunkt vid inlärning av idiom särskilt i de tidiga stadierna av språkinlärningen, dels för att det kan vara svårt för inlärare att förstå de nyansskillnader som finns mellan vissa prepositioner, dels för att idiom ibland kan uppvisa ogrammatiska drag vilket gör dem mer komplicerade att analysera. Resultatet har även visat att elevernas kulturella och språkliga/litterära bakgrund fungerar som inspirationskälla vid användning av nybildade bildliga uttryck.

    ”Det var som en hakspit skulle ha knakkat på dören”: Centripetala och centrifugala krafters påverkan på ortografiska val och språklig identifikation i Kågeträskdagboken2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is based on Kågeträskdagboken, a peasant diary written by sisters Greta and Lovisa Dahlqvist near Skellefteå in northern Sweden between 1981 and 1901. The research has sought to establish whether centripetal or centrifugal forces determine the orthographical choices Greta and Lovisa make in their writing as well as what kind of impact these forces have on these authors’ linguistic identification. When centripetal forces are at play, people tend to write in a way that agrees with conventions and standardised language which means that orthographical patterns are applied. Centrifugal forces move away from centring institutions and apply heterographic patterns that challenge a language’s norms and conventions. Research in this thesis was conducted using a variety of orthographic variables and meticulously reviewing the source material. After gathering the data, a lengthy process of analysis, interpretation, and compilation began. Based on the results, it is apparent that both centripetal and centrifugal forces influence the linguistic choices of the writers, as evidenced by the diary’s prevalent orthographic and heterographic spelling patterns. One further finding is that these forces are having a cumulative impact on the writers, creating an identification linguistically with both their local dialect, skelleftemål, and the standardised written language of Swedish.

    Gutamål: Ett kulturarv att vårda eller ett vardagsspråk att nyttja?2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats har varit att undersöka hur det talade gutamålet låter i dag, det vill säga vilka särdrag som kvarstår samt om några av dem har försvunnit eller förändrats. Vidare har målet varit att undersöka huruvida gutamålets talare kodväxlar, och i vilka sammanhang de i så fall nyttjar gutamålet. Dessutom har målsättningen varit att undersöka hur olika utomspråkliga variabler påverkar talarnas användning av och attityd till gutamålet. Slutligen, baserat på de resultat som undersökningen visade, söktes svar på huruvida gutamålet har en framtid och vilka åtgärder talarna anser krävs för att säkra dess fortsatta existens. Undersökningen har genomförts dels genom en webbaserad enkätundersökning, dels genom tre inspelningar med personer som talar gutamål. Enkätsvaren har bearbetats och analyserats och inspelningarna har transkriberats och analyserats. Resultatet från enkätundersökningen visar att det är få som talar mer gutamål i dag än vad de gjorde förr och att ju högre utbildning människor har, desto mindre nyttjar de gutamålet i vardagen samt överför det till yngre generationer. Trots att de allra flesta är stolta över gutamålet och tror att det har en framtid, är det få som för det vidare till sina barn. Dessutom visar undersökningen att i princip alla informanter kodväxlar, och det är främst i informella sammanhang de nyttjar gutamålet. Ljudinspelningarna visar att mycket lite verkar ha hänt med det talade gutamålet, det enda som egentligen har hänt är att infinitivmärket har förändrats. Slutsatserna som dras är bland annat att talarna är mycket stolta över gutamålet, och även om en stor majoritet tror att det har en framtid så är det ändå få som väljer att föra gutamålet vidare till yngre generationer. Detta leder i sin tur till att gutamålet förmodligen kommer att bli ett vårdat kulturarv i stället för ett nyttjat vardagsspråk i framtiden.

    Copies of Filip Stanislavov’s Abagar (Rome, 1651)2015In: Scripta & e-Scripta, ISSN 1312-238X, Vol. 14–15, p. 63-71Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses the currently available information on the extant copies of Filip Stanislavov’s Abagar, printed in Rome by the Propaganda Fide in 1651. Starting from Božidar Rajkov’s 1979 edition, which lists fifteen known copies and their presumed location, the article offers information on several copies that are not reported by Rajkov. These include copies in London, Paris, and Uppsala, the latter in the form of a scroll. In addition, the current location of most of the earlier known copies has been verified, and new information on a number of copies is presented: for example, the copy formerly located in Brussels is currently preserved at the Bibliothèque Diderot in Lyon, whereas the two German copies seem to have been lost.

    Abstract [en]

    The article aims to describe some of the new approaches within Early Slavic studies that have become available due to the recent appearance of on-line library catalogs, public repositories, social media networks, and digital surrogates of medieval Slavic manuscripts and early printed books. The changing opportunities and challenges within this new digital context are demonstrated through short presentations of a few projects within Swedish Early Slavic studies, including the Novgorodiana Stockholmiensia project and the project Digitalised Descriptions of Slavic Cyrillic Manuscripts and Early Printed Books in Swedish Libraries and Archives.

    Domestication and Foreignization in Russian Translations of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland2012In: Domestication and Foreignization in Translation Studies / [ed] Hannu Kemppanen, Marja Jänis, Alexandra Belikova, Berlin: Frank & Timme, 2012, p. 79-100Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In chapter 2 of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Alice tries to talk to a Mouse, but does not receive an answer: "'Perhaps it doesn't understand English,' thought Alice. 'I dare say it's a French mouse, come over with William the Conqueror.'". Accordingly, Alice addresses the Mouse in French: "Où est ma chatte?". Russian translators of Alice have translated this sequence in different ways – for example, in Vladimir Nabokov's translation (1923), which is often considered a typical example of a domesticated translation, the Mouse does not understand Russian. The mouse is probably French and the reason that it is in the same place as Anya (Alice) might be that it has stayed behind (in Russia?) after the retreat of Napoleon (in the 1812 war between France and Russia), and Alice speaks to the Mouse in French: "Ou est ma chatte?". On the basis of an analysis of examples of Russian and other translations, the present contribution will try to problematize the concepts domestication and foreignization, applying them not only to the translation of "domestic" source text elements, but also to source text elements that can be seen as "foreign".

    Early printed Church Slavonic Psalters in Swedish collections2021In: Славянски текстове и традиции: сборник в чест на Катрин Мери Макробърт = Slavonic texts and traditions : in honour of Catherine Mary MacRobert / [ed] Svetlina Nikolova, Ralph Cleminson, Veselka Zhelyazkova, Margaret Dimitrova, Sofia: Cyrillo-Methodian Research Centre , 2021, p. 161-168Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article presents 29 printed Church Slavonic Psalters from the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries currently preserved at Uppsala University Library and other Swedish repositories. Approximately half of the books were printed in Moscow, whereas the remaining books were printed in Kiev, Lviv, Vilna and other important printing centres during this period. The Swedish collections of early printed Church Slavonic Psalters are not impressive when it comes to numbers, but they offer insight in the early spread of Cyrillic printed books outside their countries of origin as well as in an important period in the history of book collecting in northern Europe.

    Graphematic Features in Glagolitic and Cyrillic Orthographies: A Contribution to the Typological Model of Biscriptality2020In: Advances in Historical Orthography, c. 1500–1800 / [ed] Marco Condorelli, Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 2020, p. 46-66Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter engages with the typological model of biscriptality recently developed by Bunčić et al. in order to offer an innovative approach to the analysis of graphematic features in Church Slavonic orthography. In the chapter, the biscriptality model is applied to two South Slavic New Testament texts printed in Glagolitic and Cyrillic letters in 1562/63 and 1563, respectively, in Urach near Tübingen. Through a detailed analysis of some important features of the printed texts of the New Testament, concepts such as letters, graphemes and allographs are used to characterise both the internal script contexts within the two texts and their external biscriptal relations. The chapter outlines a model for biscriptal isomorphism that is applied to six grapheme classes: the segmental graphemes letters and numerals, and the supragraphemes capitalisation, superposition, abbreviation and ligature.

    Johan Gabriel Sparwenfelds kyrilliska och glagolitiska 1600-talstryck utgivna av Sacra Congregatio de Propaganda Fide i Rom2014In: Slovo: Journal of Slavic Languages, Literatures and Cultures , E-ISSN 2001-7359, Vol. 55, p. 9-17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article describes four volumes comprising more than twenty titles printed by the Sacra Congregatio de Propaganda Fide in Rome during the seventeenth century. The volumes, originally owned by Johan Gabriel Sparwenfeld (1655–1727), were donated to Uppsala University Library in the beginning of the eighteenth century and are still included in the collection of this library. The titles include alphabets and other works in Armenian, Arabic, Georgian, Hebrew, Persian, etc., as well as five Slavic publications printed with Cyrillic and Glagolitic letters: Azbukividnêk slovinskiĵ (1629), Ispoviedaonik sabran iz pravoslavniech naučitelia (1630), Ispravnik za erei ispovidnici (1635), Ispovedanie pravoslavnoe very (1648) and, perhaps the most spectacular, a copy of Filip Stanislavov’s Abagar (1651) in the form of a scroll.

    Ljudlikhet och betydelselikhet i flerspråkiga toponymer2009In: Namn i flerspråkiga och mångkulturella miljöer: Handlingar från NORNA:s 36:e symposium i Umeå 16–18 november 2006, Umeå, 2009, p. 57-64Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

     

    The present article discusses toponyms in different languages referring to the 

    same geographical location, making a distinction between similarity in 

    sound (phonetic adaptation, name quotation, etc.) and similarity in sense 

    (name translation, etc.). In the latter case, following Coates (2005), a 

    distinction is made between semantic reference, onymic reference, and 

    apparent etymological sense. The short theoretical introduction is illustrated 

    with examples from bilingual or multilingual areas such as Southern Austria 

    (Kärnten—with German and Slovenian place-names) and, particularly, 

    Hong Kong, which exhibits an intricate interplay between two varieties of 

    Chinese—Cantonese and Mandarin—and English, where, due to the funda- 

    mental differences between the Chinese and English writing systems, 

    particular attention is paid to the different Romanization methods for 

    Chinese.

    Recently identified Cyrillic incunabula in Sweden2015In: Knigam bo est’ neiščetnaja glubina: essays in honour of Irina Lysén / [ed] Hanne Martine Eckhoff & Thomas Rosén, Uppsala: Uppsala universitet, 2015, p. 14-23Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The article offers an identification and short description of thirty-four earlier unidentified printed leaves with Cyrillic text currently preserved at the Swedish National Archives in Stockholm. The leaves belong to three Cyrillic incunabula editions printed in Cracow in the 1490s: a Horologion, a Lenten Triodion, and a Festal Triodion. They constitute, to the best of our knowledge, the first Swedish Cyrillic incunabula fragments described. The leaves arrived in Uppsala as filling in the binding of a copy of Apuleius Asinus Aureus. The copy was taken as war booty in Poland in the 1620s, and the leaves were later transferred to the National Archives.

    Slavic alphabets and languages in publications by the Propaganda Fide during the 17th and 18th centuries2019In: Slavic alphabets and identities / [ed] Sebastian Kempgen, Vittorio Springfield Tomelleri, Bamberg: University of Bamberg Press , 2019, p. 1-27Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper discusses the Glagolitic, Cyrillic, and Latin orthographies of the Slavic books published by the Sacra Congregatio de Propaganda Fide in Rome during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Through a comparison of eight versions of the Slavic text of the Apostles' Creed, the specific features of the respective orthographies are analysed in a chronological perspective. In addition, cross-scriptal comparisons of three editions of Robert Bellarmine's Nauk karstjanski kratak (published in the Glagolitic alphabet in 1628, in the Cyrillic alphabet in 1629, and in the Latin alphabet in 1633) and of the parallel Glagolitic and Cyrillic texts of Matej Karaman's biscriptal Bukvar (1753) are made. As the analysis shows, all texts exhibit a clear development from orthographies reflecting Central South Slavonic linguistic features to orthographies that show influence of East Slavic orthographic models. These tendencies are most pronounced in the Glagolitic and Cyrillic texts, whereas the orthography of the Latin-script texts seems to be more stable.

    The article includes as an appendix a preliminary check-list of Slavonic books published by the Propaganda Fide during the period 1627–1791.

    Slaviska språk i en hyllningsbok till Gustav III2012In: Slovo : Journal of Slavic Languages and Literatures, ISSN 0348-744X, E-ISSN 2001-7359, Vol. 53, p. 7-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1784 the Congregatio de Propaganda Fide in Rome published a unique edition to celebrate the visit of King Gustav III of Sweden (1746–1792). The book contains a poem by Gudmund Jöran Adlerbeth praising the Swedish king in forty-six different languages, including seven translations into Slavic languages (Bulgarice, Dalmatice, Illyrice, Polonice, Russice, Ruthenice, Serviane) printed in three different alphabets: Latin, Glagolitic, and Cyrillic. The present paper offers a description of some linguistic features of the different Slavic texts and attempts an analysis of how these features relate to the respective language designations and script systems. Through a comparison with other polyglot editions from the late sixteenth to the early nineteenth centuries, the Slavic texts are put in a broader perspective, and their relationship to the history of Church Slavonic is discussed.
