I am Reader in Swedish as a second language. My interest within the subject is broad – language analysis, second language acquisition, language politics, sociology of language, multilingualism and language didactics – my research, though, is focused on multilingualism, grammatical development, and the acquisition and learning of Swedish as a second language from a didactic perspective.
My research deals with language acquisition in different ages. During some years I have investigated children's multilingual development, but is now looking into the linguistic development of adult learners who study at Swedish tuition for immigrants, with focus on grammar. The general idea behind all my research is that all people have a right to language, both their mother tongue and other languages.
