Dialect at Urban School and Rural School in Värmland : – a Comparative Study on Pupils’ Attitudes to Dialect (English)
Abstract [sv]

Tidigare forskning har visat på att attityden till dialekt skiljer sig åt emellan olika orter. Studier har också pekat på att attityden till den egna dialekten ofta är komplex, då många tenderar att både gilla och ogilla sin dialekt på samma gång. I skolor på olika orter kan en lärare stöta på en mängd olika attityder till dialekt. Den här studiens syfte är att kartlägga och jämföra vilka attityder elever på en stadsskola respektive en landsortsskola i Värmland har till dialekt. I en enkätundersökning som gjorts bland 109 elever visade resultatet på att det var fler dialekttalande elever på landsortsskolan och det var också viktigare för dessa att behålla sin dialekt än det var för de dialekttalande eleverna på stadsskolan.

Undersökningen visade på att den lokala dialekten på de båda undersökningsorterna var högre skattad på landsortsskolan än på stadsskolan. Eleverna på stadsskolan tyckte också att det var lite viktigare att deras lärare talade utan dialekt. Många av resultaten var dock likartade för dialekttalarna oavsett skola och de flesta angav att de inte situationsanpassade sitt användande av dialekt utifrån enkätens exempelsituationer. Omkring hälften av eleverna uppgav emellertid att de inte använde dialekt vid vissa tillfällen och då beroende på samtalsmottagare.

Abstract [en]

Previous research has shown that the attitude to dialect differs between locations. Studies have also pointed out the complexity of the attitude toward one’s own dialect, given that many tend to both like and dislike their own dialect at the same time. A teacher may come across a variety of attitudes toward dialect depending on the school’s location. The purpose of this study is to survey the pupils’ attitudes toward dialect in a urban school compared to a rural school in Värmland. 109 pupils responded to a questionnaire which showed that a larger part of those in the rural school used dialect. It was also more important for them to preserve their dialect than those using dialect in the urban school.

The research underlined that the local dialect was more valued at the rural school compared to the urban one. The pupils at the latter also found it a bit more important that their teachers did not use dialect when speaking. However, the results were in large part similar among those using dialect regardless of their school’s location and most of them indicated that they did not adjust their use of dialect to the examples of situations in the questionnaire. Approximately 50% of the respondents indicated though that they did not use dialect in some situations depending on the recipient.
