2023 (English)In: Language & Communication, ISSN 0271-5309, E-ISSN 1873-3395, Vol. 93, p. 172-187Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This study investigates the interplay between morality, impoliteness, and moral order in the online harassment of Swedish journalists on Twitter. It reveals how impoliteness serves as a tool to harm the media's epistemic credibility, rooted in anti-press and populist rhetoric, and exert destructive informal social control. The highlighted paradox is that provisions for freedom of speech, designed to protect, are paradoxically used to suppress journalists' voices through targeted insults and derogatory language. The study uncovers that such harassment is systematic, politically motivated, and morally grounded. We emphasize the urgent need to recognize and confront these subtle tactics that threaten journalistic freedom and, consequently, access to information in Sweden and internationally under growing criticism that seeks to delegitimize the media. © 2023 The Author(s).

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a pilot study of how brand names and product namesare recognized in commercials. Previous research has primarily focused oncommercial names from the perspective of the enterprise, whereas we inthis study shift focus to a user perspective. The paper also presents a newmethod for onomastic study which was used in the pilot study: eye tracking.Eye tracking implies digitally registering and analyzing patterns in eyemovements in order to explore how particular features are recognized andcognitively processed in interaction with other features in the context. Thepaper describes the eye tracking method and its theoretical foundation aswell as apply it in a small pilot study. Six advertisements containing a totalof 12 commercial names and different visual structures were presented to10 study participants. Basing on the results of the eye tracking analysis, wediscuss how names in different visual settings have been recognized andremembered and identify potential research questions for future research.We also evaluate the utilization of the method as such and discuss itsimplications for future onomastics. © Respektive författare 2023

Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is, based on previous Nordic name research, to provide a proposal for defining the name category that include product names more than before. In this context, the entire naming practice, that includes the naming process, the emergence of names, the monoreferentiality, the adjacent to appellative and text, the name formation, and the name choice, as well as the function of the product name group, is highlighted. To conclude, it can be stated that the similarities between product names and other more prototypical names are predominant. The differences that occur, depend upon the situation and the name users’ individual choices. Finally, I argue that product names are part of the name category - on their own terms.

Abstract [en]

With a particular focus on differences within social groups, this article describes the multiple forename system as it emerged between 1720 and 1890 in the area of Skellefteå in the north-east of Sweden. Female and male forenames are compared, as is the introduction of the multiple forename system in different social groups in the study data. Theoretical starting points are taken from the discipline of cultural soci-ology, especially the work of Simmel (1957) and Bourdieu (1984; 1989; 1997). The results indicate that this naming pattern was introduced in the naming of girls prior to the naming of boys. Analysis of the social aspects of the process takes its starting point in fields like ‘names and social identity’, ‘status and (group) solidarity’, and ‘the importance of taste’. The data studied are divided into six social groups based on the father’s social rank at the time of the child’s birth, one group comprising unmarried mothers and one ‘miscellaneous’ group. The results illustrate that the practice of giving children at least two forenames was introduced by the upper middle class (upper bourgeoisie), who then either returned to giving one forename or increased the number of forenames to three for each child. This may have created exclusiveness within the group. Differences between ‘us’ and ‘them’ can thus be elucidated on the basis of the naming pattern used.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the article is to describe the frequency and phonological aspects of Syrian first names in Sweden. The data is taken from Syrian citizens who were living in Sweden and had been in contact with the Syrian embassy in Stockholm between 2014 and 2018. In total, 1,119 first names (tokens) were studied: 328 are female names and 791 are male names. The research questions in focus are as follows: 1) What similarities and differences exist between Syrian female and male first names, regarding both frequency and phonological aspects? 2) What similarities and differences exist between the first names of Syrian and Swedish citizens in Sweden, regarding frequency and phonological aspects? 3) What are the possibilities of native Swedish parents accepting Syrian first names for their own children?The results show differences between female and male first names with regard to variation in first names. Further, there are similarities as well as differences between Syrian and established Swedish first names, which may lead to a lack of acceptance of using Syrian first names to name children of native Swedes. The starting point for the analysis is contact onomastics and the question of whether the Swedish naming practice is (or is not) undergoing a change due to names in contact.
