I teach first- and second-cycle courses in German (linguistics). I also supervise student theses at both levels and teach language education in the teacher education programme.


Current research

I’m currently exploring patterns of interaction in text-based student chats in a learning perspective. I’m for example interested in imitation as a strategy for learning lexical, morphological and syntactic units.
Within the same area – computer-mediated communication – I’m also studying Swedish schoolchildren’s use of personal school computers and the potential to develop the language for communicative purposes.
Another area of my research concerns the development of reading and writing skills towards academic writing competence.

Research interests:

  • German grammar learning in a cognitive perspective
  • German morphology
  • Contrastive linguistics
  • CALL/CMCL – computer-mediated communication and language acquisition
