General linguistics

Head of section, General linguistics

I teach, give seminars, and supervise primarily in courses regarding sociolinguistics, Swedish grammar, language norms, and language care. The courses are, in the first hand, parts of education programs in translation (master program), teaching (at Campus Helsingborg), and language consultancy.

My research concerns language in sports contexts and didactics with respect to grammar.


About the research

At the moment, my primary research project regards language in sports, focusing on language as a tool for power, teaching, and democracy. The project is sponsored by Centrum för Idrottsforskning. My second research project regards teachers' work with text written by their pupils.
