    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Arabic; diglossia; home language instruction; bilingualism; writing in Arabic; Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures; Mellanösterns språk och kulturer;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the command 8th-graders in Arabic home language instruction have of written Modern Standard Arabic and if the type of instruction they have received and/or contact with written Arabic affect their performance. Background chapters discuss variables connected to the Arabic language (diglossia, research on reading and writing in Arabic) and variables connected to HLI in Sweden (set-up, steering documents).

    Abstract : Mainstream research on reading and writing is based on the assumption, common in modern linguistics, that spoken language is primary to written language in most important respects. Unfortunately, the conceptual framework for the study of language and 'literacy' (encompassing both reading and writing skills) is built around this assumption. READ MORE

  5. 5. Natural Language Processing for Low-resourced Code-switched Colloquial Languages – The Case of Algerian Language

    Author : Wafia Adouane; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Natural language processing; Deep neural networks; Low-resourced language; Colloquial language; Code-switch; Dialectal Arabic; User-generated data; Non-standardised orthography; Algerian language;

    Abstract : In this thesis we explore to what extent deep neural networks (DNNs), trained end-to-end, can be used to perform natural language processing tasks for code-switched colloquial languages lacking both large automated data and processing tools, for instance tokenisers, morpho-syntactic and semantic parsers, etc. We opt for an end-to-end learning approach because this kind of data is hard to control due to its high orthographic and linguistic variability.
