    • The sentence repetition task as a measure of sign language proficiency 2021-10-08 This article by Krister Schönström and Peter C. Hauser describes the development of a Swedish Sign Language Sentence Repetition Test (STS-SRT) and the evidence that supports the validity of the test’s interpretation and use. The test outcomes revealed that adults scored 20.2% higher than children, and delayed sign language acquisition were associated with lower scores. The results provide reliability and validity evidence to support the use of STS-SRT in research as a measure of STS proficiency.
    • Mouthings in Swedish Sign Language : An exploratory study 2021-10-01 This paper by Johanna Mesch, Krister Schönström and Sebastian Embacher deals with the non-manual mouth actions of Swedish Sign Language (STS). Based on data from two large corporas, the study compare the use of mouthings in deaf L1 as well as hearing L2 signers. Mouthings is a category of mouth actions that is based on a mouth movement with visual elements borrowed from the prototypical mouth articulation of words from spoken language. Mouth gestures on the other hand are sign languages’ own language-specic mouth movements. This study shows that L1 signers have a preference for reduced mouthing in comparison to L2 signers.
    • Talking About Temperature and Social Thermoregulation in the Languages of the World 2021-09-27 Why do we use the same adjective for describing people and for talking about concrete temperature perception? A paper by Maria Koptjevskaja Tamm and Dmitry Nikolaev reports on a first systematic cross-lingual study of the exponents of conceptual metaphor AFFECTION IS WARMTH (Lakoff & Johnson, 1980; Grady, 1997).
    • Patient or Citizen? Participation and Accessibility for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing People (...) 2021-09-20 Drawing upon ethnographic data from two projects, this paper by Ingela Holmström and Sangeeta Bagga-Gupta focuses on interpretation issues in deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) individuals’ everyday lives.
    • Phonological Variations Are Compensated at the Lexical Level: Evidence From Auditory Neural Activity 2021-08-27 This paper by Hatice Zora et al. investigates the consequences of plausible and implausible variations on lexical access. The main result is consistent with the larger notion that the long-term memory representations for words enable rapid lexical access even in the case of partial auditory information.
    • Sign languages and second language acquisition research: An introduction (K. Schönström) 2021-08-23 This paper includes a brief contemporary overview of sign language and Sign Second Language Acquisition research, together with some insights from the research on iconicity and gestures. It also includes some examples from studies on L2 signers of Swedish Sign language (STS).
    • The Hindu Kush–Karakorum and linguistic areality (H. Liljegren) 2021-08-23 Artikeln sammanfattar och diskuterar de viktigaste resultaten av det nyligen avslutade arealtypologiska projektet Språkkontakt och språksläktskap i Hindukushregionen (2015–2020). Projektledare och artikelförfattare är Henrik Liljegren, docent i lingvistik.
    • Modality-Focused L2-Instruction in Swedish Sign Language (I. Holmström) 2021-08-23 Artikeln bygger på UTL2-projektet som pågått vid institutionen sedan 2016. Projektet använder aktionsforskning som metod och undersöker hur undervisningen i svenskt teckenspråk kan utformas för att leda till så god progression och djupa kunskaper som möjligt.
    • Prototype Semantics and Cross‐Linguistic Comparison 2021-03-19 In our article we attempt to relate the achievements and discussion within cross-linguistic research on semantics to the general discussion of categorisation and prototypes. We conclude that categories, as they emerge in the course of cross-linguistic research, have fuzzy boundaries and seem to be organized in terms of prototypes.
    • Use and acquisition of mouth actions in L2 sign language learners : A corpus-based approach (2021) 2021-01-04 This article deals with L2 acquisition of a sign language, examining in particular the use and acquisition of non-manual mouth actions performed by L2 learners of Swedish Sign Language.
