Born in 1965 in Hässleholm in northern Scania, I became fil. kand. (approx. BA) in Scandinavian languages, history and literature studies in 1988 and then fil. d:r (approx. PhD) in Scandinavian languages in 1997 at Lunds universitet – with a thesis on late medieval Swedish law language. Also thereafter I have mainly done research on Swedish style or language history, concerning such materials as soldier's handbooks and tourist brochures and such phenomena as calendarian time expressions. This focus on language in use has also lead me to a theoretical interest in text notions and text terminology. In 2010 I was appointed as docent (approx. associate professor) in Scandinavian languages. Since 1998 I have also worked part time as a lexicographer at the historical comprehensive dictionary of the Swedish Academy in Lund, from 2015 as its chief editor.
