Abstract [en]

The purpose of the current study was to examine into which groups of meaning the

derivational morpheme –

skap can be grouped in Swedish. 340 Swedish words formed with –

skap

were collected from SAOL and grouped into different groups of meaning based on 1)

their meaning, and 2) their part(s) of speech. For example, words that express a state of being,

such as

galenskap (madness) and havandeskap (pregnancy) were placed into one group.

Words that refer to a work or a title, such as

ridderskap (knighthood), presidentskap

(presidency), and

författarskap (authorship), were grouped together in another group. Using

this method, the results show that the gathered 340 words could be divided into 11 different

groups expressing 1) state of being, 2) environment, 3) belonging, 4) kinship, 5) work, title,

office, 6) tools, 7) sport events, 8) economy and finances, 9) information and forms of

knowing, 10) mischief, and 11) remaining words. This study also aimed at examining to what

extent an intervention focusing on word formation, and derivational morphemes in particular,

affect Swedish upper-secondary school students’ metamorphological awareness. The

intervention was a quasi-experimental study in which 58 students participated. The

participants were first given a pre-test to determine whether they had a high or low

metamorphological awareness. This was determined by their ability to define five different

Swedish derivational morphemes. Afterwards, they participated in an intervention in the form

of a lesson where they were taught basic word formation with the focus on derivational

morphemes, which was succeeded by a post-test, which examined the effect the intervention

had had on the participants’ metamorphological awareness. The post-test was identical to the

pre-test, with the exception of five additional words formed with –

skap, with the purpose to

compare the students’ definitions to the groups of meaning presented in the first part of this

study. The results show that the intervention had a great effect on the participants’

metamorphological awareness. For example, in the pre-test, most of the participants had

either one or two correct definitions, but in the post-test, the majority of the participants had

either four or five correct definitions, which indicate an increase of metamorphological

awareness.
