  1. 1. The Role of Linguistic Context in the Acquisition of the Pluperfect Polish Learners of Swedish as a Foreign Language

    University dissertation from Gdańsk : Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Gdańskiego

    Author : Bronisława Zielonka; Staffan Hellberg; Gisela Håkansson; [2005]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; aspect; aktionsart; tense; pluperfect; indication of topic time; time of action; linguistic context; target verb; linguistic factors inhibiting facilitating acquisition; stepwise multiple regression; partial effect; order of acquisition; sequence of acquisition.; HUMANITIES and RELIGION Languages and linguistics Scandinavian languages; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Språkvetenskap Nordiska språk;

    Abstract : This work consists of two parts: the theoretical and the experimental. In the theoretical part, some general and some language specific theories of tense, aspect and aktionsart are presented, and the temporal systems of Swedish and Polish are compared. The theoretical part is not a mere review of the literature on the subject. READ MORE

  2. 2. The acquisition of contrast a longitudinal investigation of initial s+plosive cluster development in Swedish children

    University dissertation from Umeå : Filosofi och lingvistik

    Author : Fredrik Karlsson; Kirk P. H. Sullivan; Peter E. Czigler; Marilyn M. Vihman; [2006]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; phonological contrast; speech development; place and manner of articulation; aspiration; structural complexity; acoustic cues; homonym production; HUMANITIES and RELIGION Languages and linguistics Linguistic subjects Phonetics; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Språkvetenskap Lingvistikämnen Fonetik;

    Abstract : This Thesis explores the development of word-initial s+plosive consonant clusters in the speech of Swedish children between the ages of 1;6 and 4;6. Development in the word-initial consonant clusters is viewed as being determined by 1) the children’s ability to articulate the target sequence of consonants, 2) the level of understanding of which acoustic features in the adult model production are significant for the signalling of the intended distinction, and 3) the children’s ability to apply established production patterns only to productions where the acquired feature agrees with the adult target, to achieve a contrast between rival output forms.

  3. 3. Implicit structured sequence learning

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Vasiliki Folia; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : A simple question: Do you know how you manage to speak your native language without making grammatical errors despite the fact that you probably do not know how to describe the grammatical rules you use? Sometimes such simple questions do not have simple answers. The amazing capacity to effectively communicate complex information and thoughts through the medium of language is the result of the way language, and more specifically, linguistic rules are learned: in an implicit manner.

  4. 4. Acquisition and manipulation of mental structures : Investigations on artificial grammar learning and implicit sequence processing

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Christian Forkstam; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis introduces repetitive artificial grammar learning as a paradigm in the investigation of sequential implicit learning, in particular as a model for language acquisition and processing. Implicit learning of sequential structure captures an essential cognitive processing capacity of interest from a larger cognitive neuroscience perspective. READ MORE

  5. 5. Language as structured sequences: a causal role of Broca's region in sequence processing

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Julia Uddén; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : In this thesis I approach language as a neurobiological system. I defend a sequence processing perspective on language and on the function of Broca's region in the left inferior frontal gyrus (LIFG). This perspective provides a way to express common structural aspects of language, music and action, which all engage the LIFG. READ MORE
