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, particular attention is paid, for instance, to the differences between spoken and written production, the individual styles of producing the target language, and the process of producing syntactic structures. This project is funded by Koneen säätiö (01.04.2022 –).
