I have a background as a teacher of French, English and Swedish as a second and foreign language. I have also been teaching Phonetics at Lund University.
My thesis project deals with presentation of pronunciation in encyclopedias, i.e. phonetic transcriptions and their corresponding sound recordings. A major goal is to investigate the users' attitudes and preferences. Sociophonetics is an essential ingredient in this work.
Other topics of interest to me are pronunciation as part of second and foreign language teaching, and furthermore, film and stage pronunciation in talking and singing.
