Research

The aim of my PhD Thesis is to examine how Finnish learners of Swedish use connectors in their written production. The theoretical framework of my thesis is systemic-functional linguistics and third language acquisition. I study how multilingual learners use their holistic linguistic resources when realizing logical-semantical relations between words, phrases, clauses and sentences with connectors. I will also examine the use of connectors during writing process with keystroke logging.
