Short presentation

I am a senior lecturer in Swedish as a second language. My main research interests are multilingualism and language contact. My reserach focuses on three main areas: loanword phonology, bilingualism in the Turkish diaspora and historical sociolinguistics. Currently, I am working on the project "Changes in Swedish pronunciation norms for English loanwords under intensifying contact with English" funded by the Swedish Academy.

Keywords: phonology multilingualism turkish language contact sociolinguistics second language acquisition
