Abstract
The aim of the current project (“Swedish Phonetics ’39-‘69”) is to provide an account of the historical, social, discursive, and rhetoric con-ditions that determined the emergence of pho-netic science in Sweden between 1939 and 1969. The inquiry is based on a investigation in four areas: how empirical phonetic data were analysed in the period, how the discipline gained new knowledge about phonetic facts through improvements in experimental settings, how technological equipment specially adapted to phonetic research was developed, and how diverging phonetic explanations became com-peting paradigms. Understanding of the devel-opment of phonetic knowledge may be synthe-sised in the persona of particularly emblematic phoneticians: Bertil... (More)
The aim of the current project (“Swedish Phonetics ’39-‘69”) is to provide an account of the historical, social, discursive, and rhetoric con-ditions that determined the emergence of pho-netic science in Sweden between 1939 and 1969. The inquiry is based on a investigation in four areas: how empirical phonetic data were analysed in the period, how the discipline gained new knowledge about phonetic facts through improvements in experimental settings, how technological equipment specially adapted to phonetic research was developed, and how diverging phonetic explanations became com-peting paradigms. Understanding of the devel-opment of phonetic knowledge may be synthe-sised in the persona of particularly emblematic phoneticians: Bertil Malmberg embodied the boom that happened in the field of Swedish phonetics during this period. The emergence of internationally recognized Swedish research in phonetics was largely his work. This investiga-tion is based on two different corpora. The first corpus is the set of 216 contributions, the full authorship of Malmberg published between 1939 and 1969. The second corpus is his ar-chive, owned by Lund University. It includes semi-official and official letters, administrative correspondence, funding applications (…). The two are complementary. The study of both is necessary for achieving a systematic descrip-tion of the development of phonetic knowledge in Sweden. (Less)
