About Stellan Petersson

I am employed as a lecturer in Swedish language. One of my main research interests is to explore the relation between semantics and grammar. By detailed investigations of complex empirical phenomena in English, Swedish and other languages, we will hopefully understand the interconnections between these domains better. In particular, I am interested in noun phrases, adjectives, and tense systems in Swedish and English. I received my PhD degree (in theoretical philosophy) in 2019; the dissertation explores semantic context-dependence.Visit my webpage on ResearchGate for more information: My research also concerns controversial words in Swedish. These inquiries focus on questions about context dependence and emotive meaning, and are related to practical lexicographical work on Swedish monolingual dictionaries.

During 2021, my teaching mostly concerns semantics, rhetoric, sociolinguistics and supervision of academic essays.
