About Hans Landqvist

Hans Landqvists research focusses on the following three areas; professional discourse, especially in legal contexts, text research, and translation studies. Another research interest is vocabulary and dictionaries, both general dictionaries like Svenska Akademiens ordbok (SAOB, ’The Swedish Academy Dictionary’, 1893–) and specialized dictionaries like Juridikens termer (’Legal Terminology’, 1st ed. 1958, 9th ed. 2002). Hans Landqvist also studies lingustic varieties, especially Swedish in Finland (Finland Swedish) in relation to Swedish in Sweden and trade slang among professional Swedish musicians.
