Abstract [en]

Political correctness is a difficult term to explain. This essay will explore how opinions about this term is expressed and how it affects the social interactions in the lives of 10 younger Stockholmers with different kinds of social background. The material consists of in-depth interviews with a total of ten informants with different living backgrounds.

Is political correctness furthermore a problem or a non-problem in our social lives? It is a question that seems to give life to many strong feelings. Moreover, in all directions and opinions. I had a clear idea of what political correctness meant and had the idea that it was just the view that existed. How can people think in any other way?

Languages are contrary to my previous view, something that we are all involved in and create. It is a process that is one of the most significant capabilities we as humans have. What role does political correctness have in this? What political correctness means is one of the questions that this essay will address, but what we can say is that the word choice in a social conversation is most important. How we talk to and about each other is more significant than many may think. Our ability to choose one term over another contributes to our perception of other people and, of course, ourselves and our role in society.

Adding to this is that my results have shown how ten young Stockholmers from different backgrounds perceived the concept of political correctness. What has been demonstrated is how the concept/phenomenon of political correctness has been described by these young people and how their social interaction has been affected by others when they use a politically correct or incorrect language.
