Abstract [en]

The study was designed to examine expressions for menstruation (e.g., shark week) in English and Swedish from a linguistic perspective, and thus provide linguistic insight into how people think of, perceive, and talk about menstruation. This article presents a systematic examination of expressions using linguistic analytical frameworks, such as semantic domains, euphemisms and dysphemisms, and conceptual metaphors to identify how menstruation is categorized and construed. It shows that the forms of menstrual linguistic expressions perpetuate dominant discourses of shame and negativity, but also that the creativity and humor displayed by expressions are used as a part of menstrual activism to challenge negative discourse.

Abstract [sv]

Självständiga arbeten har fått en allt mer central roll i svensk högre utbildning, och därför får även handledning av dessa av större betydelse. Trots att det finns viss forskning som rör handledning av självständiga arbeten är det ovanligt med empirisk forskning av själva handledningspraktiken, d v s vad som görs, hur det görs och varför. Vi vill koppla dessa frågor till pedagogiska aspekter som stöttning, perspektivprövning och studentens självständighet. Vi undersöker därför det vi kallar handledningspraktiken vilken utgörs av all interaktion mellan handledare och student. Fokus för den här artikeln ligger dock på handledningssamtal. Genom att använda språkvetenskapliga angreppsätt vill vi belysa ett av de interaktionella mönster som vi har identifierat i handledningssamtalen, nämligen samma persons användning av olika röster. Vi utgår från Bahktins röstbegrepp för att studera hur röst operationaliseras i samtalen och ger dem dialogisk karaktär.

Abstract [en]

The present paper is a corpus-based study which examines social roles as constructed in British nineteenth-century children's literature. Both gender roles overall as well as the more specific roles of mother and father are investigated. The main approach is to systematically study adjectival descriptions of characters both quantitatively and qualitatively in order to find recurring patterns of description that function as part of defining a social role. The method of classification is primarily through semantic domains. The study shows that the female social role is defined as involving few mental qualities, whereas a pleasant appearance is important. In contrast, social status and positive mental characteristics are important defining factors for the male social role.

Abstract [en]

This corpus-based study examines adjectives and adjectival expressions used to describe characters in British children’s fiction. The focus is on diachronic variation, by comparing Victorian (19th-century) and contemporary (late 20th-century) children’s fiction, and on gender variation, by comparing the descriptions of female and male characters. I adopt a qualitative as well as a quantitative approach, and consider factors such as lexical diversity, adjectival density, collocation patterns, evaluative meaning, syntactic function and distribution across semantic domains. Most findings are related to a dichotomy set up between an idealistic and a realistic portrayal of characters. The study shows that an idealistic portrayal of characters is typical of the Victorian material and a realistic portrayal of characters typical of the contemporary material. Further, gender differences are much more pronounced, and reflect traditional gender role patterns more in the Victorian material than in the contemporary material. For instance, a pleasant appearance is typically described for Victorian female characters and social position for Victorian male characters. Moreover, descriptions of mental properties of Victorian female characters are conspicuously rare. Such gendered patterns are less distinct in the contemporary material, although appearance is still more extensively described for female than male characters. As regards how the qualities are attributed to characters, the descriptions of Victorian female characters were found to be the most formulaic compared to the descriptions of Victorian male, contemporary female and contemporary male characters.
