Forum for Linguistics

This research group is a meeting-point for Dalarna University’s researchers, teachers and doctoral students with an interest in linguistic research with different theoretical and methodological traditions.

About the research group

The research group has the goal to strengthen and develop the linguistic research environment at Dalarna University. Our research covers a broad linguistic spectrum, including both core and applied research. Common areas of interest, which overlap much with one another, are:

  • digital communication
  • institutional discourses, corpus linguistics and languages for specific purposes
  • linguistic perspectives in the learning and teaching of first, second and foreign languages, plus
  • linguistic interculturality, identity-related linguistic issues, including multilingualism and translanguaging.

Beyond these, the group’s members study individual languages and varieties from both synchronic and diachronic perspectives, as well as in linguistic disciplines such as name research or onomastics, and translation.

There are many areas of cooperation within the group, but above all we unite around our seminar series which gives the opportunity to present research projects, discuss draft publications, organize workshops on linguistic issues and meet researchers inside and outside of our environment.

Our seminars take place on Tuesdays 13-15 during odd-numbered weeks. Anyone interested is warmly welcome to take part in our meetings. Contact us if you wish to attend:
