English in Sweden : A study of attitudes towards English in today’s Sweden (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine attitudes towards the use of English in the Swedish language, in Swedish society in general, and in Swedish academia. Mainly a quantitative method was used to examine these attitudes. An online questionnaire was constructed, consisting of different statements regarding the current linguistic situation in Sweden. It also contained a section where the participants had to choose between using an English word or a corresponding Swedish word. The study indicates that people tend to choose the English word instead of the corresponding Swedish word. In addition, people answering this questionnaire seem to be more worried about the use of English in the Swedish language than they are about the use of English in Swedish society in general and in academia. This study also shows that the younger you are, the more positive you tend to be towards the usage of English.
