Excuse me, I´ll just powder my nose! : Individuals' accommodation of linguistic expression and degree of awareness in connection with toilet visits (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den här språksociologiska undersökningen tar reda på hur individer anpassar sitt språkliga uttryck i samband med toalettbesök i privat, offentligt och högtidligt sammanhang, samt deras grad av medvetenhet och normanpassning i känsliga sammanhang. Detta har gjorts genom en enkätstudie där totalt 362 respondenter svarat på både öppna och slutna frågor, vilket har gett både kvantitativa och kvalitativa data. Det empiriska materialet har efter bearbetning jämförts med tidigare forskning och teoretiska perspektiv, vilket utmynnat i resultaten att de allra flesta ackommoderar efter sammanhang och är medvetna om hur de ackommoderar i formella sammanhang. Ytterligare en tendens resultatet visar är att det postmoderna samhället påverkat samhällsutvecklingen mot en mer öppen kommunikationsstil där relationer skapas och samarbete eftersträvas.

Abstract [en]

This sociolinguistic research examines how individuals adapt their linguistic expression in relation to toilet visits in private, public and formal contexts, as well as their degree of awareness and accommodation in sensitive contexts. A total of 362 respondents, have answered a questionnaire with both open and closed questions, which has given both quantitative and qualitative data. After processing, the empirical material has been compared with former research and theoretical perspectives, concluding that a majority of the respondents accommodate according to context and are aware of how they accommodate in formal contexts. The result also tends to that the postmodern society has influenced the social progress towards a more open style of communication in which relationships are created and cooperation is sought.
