Is 'respect' a Feeling or a Behaviour?: -a study of the connection between word meaning and age for native and non-native speakers of English
Mid Sweden University, Faculty of Human Sciences, Department of Humanities.
2009 (English)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate if there is a connection between language and social identity in the perception of word meaning among second language learners in the same way as for native speakers, and if the sociolinguistic variable age is significant. This was done with an investigation of two generations of Swedish learners' perception of the meaning of the words 'respect', 'integrity' and 'communication'. The investigation showed that age is important to a certain extent regarding interpreting words and their meaning, but that it is not as important if the speaker has English as their mother tongue or as their second language.
