Research



The aim of my PhD thesis is to examine syntactically complex structures in Finnish university students' spoken and written L2 Swedish. In this study, both the end product and the process of producing syntactic structures are studied. In addition, the present study aims to develop the units and measures used in earlier studies on syntactic complexity.
