Description

Over the past decades, studies of new multiethnic youth varieties in urban settings in Scandinavia have provided thorough descriptions sociolinguistic factors such as distribution across subgroups and linguistic identity. However, a more detailed grammatical analysis of certain phenomena is still missing. Based on a corpus of natural interaction among young people in multiethnic residence areas in Aarhus, Denmark, I study new grammatical features of syntax, prosody, prepositions, grammatical gender and interjections.

The goal of this PhD project is to describe the grammatical development based on three datasets from 2003, 2012, and 2017, I aim to describe the diachronic perspective of the grammatical changes.
