    Abstract : This thesis investigates the development of oral narrative competence from age 4 to 6 in Swedish monolinguals (N=72) and in both languages of Swedish-German (N=46) and Swedish-Turkish (N=48) bilinguals growing up in Sweden. Picture-based fictional narratives were elicited with Cat/Dog and Baby Birds/Baby Goats from the Multilingual Assessment Instrument for Narratives (MAIN, Gagarina et al. READ MORE

  2. 2. Typical and atypical language development in Turkish-Swedish bilingual children aged 4–7

    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; bilingualism; Turkish; Swedish; preschool children; MAIN; CLT; language input; vocabulary; macrostructure; language impairment; atypical language development;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the vocabulary and narrative macrostructure skills of 102 typically-developing (TD) 4- to 7-year-old Turkish-Swedish bilingual children (cross-sectional), the development of these skills over time from age 4 to 6 in a subgroup of 10 children (longitudinal), and six Turkish-Swedish children with a language impairment (LI) diagnosis (clinical). The children’s health, family and language backgrounds, their language use and input patterns are explored through parental questionnaires, family interviews, and interviews with teachers and speech-language pathologists.

    Abstract : Dredging activities at Ports and Harbors are inevitable for the safe navigation of ships and vessels. Dredged material may range from very fine and contaminated sediments to sand and gravels. While, granular dredged material can be directly utilized in civil engineering applications, fine sediments may require further treatment before use. READ MORE
