  • New Interpretation of the Rök Runestone Inscription Changes View of Viking Age

    [9 May 2016] The Rök Runestone, erected in the late 800s in the Swedish province of Östergötland, is the world's most well-known runestone. Its long inscription has seemed impossible to understand, despite the fact that it is relatively easy to read. A new interpretation of the inscription has now been presented - an interpretation that breaks completely with a century-old interpretative tradition. What has previously been understood as references to heroic feats, kings and wars in fact seems to refer to the monument itself.

  • New Computer-Based Tool Measures Readability for Different Readers

    [20 May 2013] Today most public services involve electronic communication, which requires that people are able to read relatively well. However, a significant number of adults cannot fully understand the texts they read for example on the internet.

  • Big interest for the Swedish language among Swedish Americans

    [25 Jul 2011] Despite the fact that fewer Swedish Americans have Swedish as their mother tongue than before, many of them are interested in their heritage and keen to learn the language.

  • Expressions to spice up language not always a walk in the park

    [6 Oct 2010] The ability to speak a language at the level of a native is characterised by use of word combinations that mean something entirely different than the individual words suggest. Two examples in English are when you add fuel to the fire or put in your two cents. Native speakers of Swedish use a much larger number of such combinations in Swedish than people who speak Swedish as their second language. This is one of the conclusions presented in a new doctoral thesis from the University of Gothenburg.
