Linguistic development on equal terms (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of my study is to gain insight how educators stimulate children to develop their languages on equal terms. I view which differences and similarities can be distinguished in the linguistic development of children at two preschools with different socioeconomic conditions. I aim to acquire an understanding how the linguistic development can differ in preschools with specific preconditions; how do the educators work and what strategies do they use in consideration to the children’s preconditions?

I wish to highlight the significance of communication and conversation in the context of linguistic development, as children have different preconditions and strategies in their path towards a verbal Swedish. Moreover, it is interesting how the teachers choose to respond to the children in their communicative abilities and how they make the most of the children's communicative initiative in the work with linguistic development.

My interest in how linguistic development is expressed by using communication and conversation in different preschools takes its base in a discussion about how the equivalence in preschools is depicted. Therefore I wanted to gain an insight in what kind of differences and similarities one can observe using two case studies, as well as what underlies these differences and similarities.

The research questions are: What approaches and strategies do educators consider important when working with linguistic development? How do educators describe their expectations of preschool children's conversation in language development? What are the educators’ views on children's different ways of communicating in linguistic development? The results show that the educators have high ambitions to make the most of the children's communicative abilities hoping that language will develop. The results also show that language mainly develops based on what resources each child possesses and uses in their endeavour to become communicative participants.
