Girls cry and boys are strong, everyone knows that? : A analysis of stereotypical norms in six children and youth books. (English)
Abstract [sv]

I detta arbete har utvalda karaktärer i sex barn- och ungdomsböcker analyserat utifrån språkliga exempel och stereotypa normer om flickor/kvinnor och pojkar/män. Detta har skett med hjälp av Nikolajevas översättning av Stephens tabell över stereotypa egenskaper som tillskrivs män och kvinnor samt Nordenstams språkliga markörer för kvinnlighet. Resultatet visade att en förändring har skett över tid när det kommer till ett genusperspektiv. Det är fyrtiofyra år emellan den första och sista analyserade boken. Förändringen visades genom att karaktärerna i de två första böckerna följde stereotypa normer för sitt kön mer samtidigt som det i de resterande analyserade böckerna fanns karaktärer som följde stereotyper för sitt motsatta kön mer.

Abstract [en]

In this work, selected characters in six children and youth books have been analyzed based on linguistic examples and stereotypes about girls/women and boys/men. This has been done with the help of Nikolajeva's translation of Stephen's table of stereotypical attributes attributed to men and women in addition Nordenstam linguistic markers for femininity. The result showed that a change has taken place over time when it comes to a gender perspective. There is forty years between the first and last analyzed book. The change was shown by the characters in the first two books who followed stereotypical norms for their sex, while in the remaining analyzed books there were characters who followed stereotypes for their opposite sex more.
