Excluded Associations, Violence of Language and Re-ideologisation in Anna Hallberg and Lars Mikael Raattamaa (Uteslutna associationer, Språkvåld och återideologisering hos Anna Hallberg och Lars Mikael Raattamaa)

The purpose of this article is to study what the French linguist Jean-Jacques Lecercle identified as “the remainder of language” in his book The Violence of Language (1990), and how this is put into play in two poetry books from 2008, by the Swedish poets Anna Hallberg and Lars Mikael Raattamaa. By explicitly challenging a large number of conventions of language, typography, and poetry, these books raise critical issues on how the language system works. These issues specifically concern what parts and aspects of language are allowed into the linguistic system, and what parts and aspects are kept out. These regulatory mechanisms are demonstrated, and scrutinised, in these books — making them meta-critical, as well as ideology-critical. This scrutiny not only shows the relevance of identifying and understanding the mechanisms of exclusion that Lecercle identified among academic linguistics 25 years ago. It also brings them into contemporary society, where they – due to globalisation and technological development — have disseminated, and become part of almost everyone’s daily experience. The results of the article stress how this dissemination increases the societal relevance of the kind of scrutiny undertaken by Hallberg and Raattamaa, and how it can assist in re-ideologising language.
