Abstract [en]

The Map of Nordic Legends (in Swedish: ’Sägenkartan’) is a collaboration between the Institute for Language and Folklore in Sweden (Isof), The Norwegian Folklore Archives (NFS), and the Swedish Literary Society in Finland (SLS). The map tells the legends of giants’ stone-throwing (the folkloristic explanations for glacial erratics), witches, the nixie, and encounters with gnomes, werewolves and the Devil himself. The map consists of 10.000 archive records, collected from archive collections and printed publications on legends. Among the legends, the visitor to the site will also find folklore connected with agriculture, for instance about the harvest (Sw. ’skörd’), the farm (Sw. ‘bondgård’), and farm animals (Sw: ’kreatur’, ’kritter’), including horses, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, cats and dogs (Sw: ‘häst’, ‘ko’, ‘gris’, ‘får’, ‘getter’, ‘katt’, ‘hund’).

Abstract [en]

A topic modelling tool was adapted to requirements for a collection of Swedish folk legends. To offer an overview of a list of folk legend texts, which had been automatically extracted by the topic modelling tool, snippet text versions of the folk legends were displayed. The snippets were constructed from the full-text versions of the legends using the sentences most relevant to the topics extracted by the topic modelling algorithm. In addition, collection-adapted data was constructed for performing a pre-processing of the folk legend texts, before they were submitted to the topic modelling algorithm. This data consisted of a collection-adapted stop word list and word lists for improving the quality of clusters of semantically similar words.

Abstract [en]

A topic modelling tool, which was originally developed for performing text analysis on very short texts written in English, was adapted to the text genre of Swedish folk legends. The topic modelling tool was configured to use a word space model trained on a Swedish corpus, as well as a Swedish stop word list. The stop word list consisted of standard Swedish stop words, as well as 380 additional stop words that were tailored to the content of the corpus and therefore also included older spelling versions and grammatical forms of Swedish words. The adapted version of the tool was applied on a corpus consisting of around 10,000 Swedish folk legends, which resulted in the automatic extraction of 20 topics. Future versions of the tool will be extended with text summarisation func- tionality, in order to retain the text overview provided by the tool also when it is applied on longer folk legends.

Abstract [sv]

Stundligen företar vi människor oss sånt som vi inte alls funderar över. Vi gör det bara.

Har du tänkt på att vi i mötet med en gammal bekant gärna börjar med att reda ut när vi sågs senast? Och kanske när vi kommer att stöta på varandra igen?

Eller har du funderat på i vilken ordning vi tar av och på kläderna i ett omklädningsrum med andra personer runt oss? Har du undrat över hur vi människor hanterar köande, cyklande, särskrivningar eller hur vi hälsar på varandra? De här sakerna är nämligen exempel på sånt vi oftast företar oss utan att reflektera över det särskilt mycket.

Boken Sånt vi bara gör handlar om olika kulturellt och socialt betingade vardagshandlingar. Volymen bjuder på 91 korta, koncentrerade texter skrivna av forskare inom humaniora. Utifrån egen och andras forskning berättar de engagerat och lättillgängligt om sånt vi bara gör. Varje text kompletteras med en faktaruta med lästips för den vetgirige.

Sånt vi bara gör kan läsas för nöjes skull, men boken passar också utmärkt som diskussionsunderlag i studiecirklar liksom i gymnasie- och högskolans undervisning med kultur och språk i fokus.

Abstract [en]

This article presents the project Nätpublicering av dialektinspelningar (Web publication of dialect recordings), which was launched in 2015. The article focuses on the ethics and methodology of digital publishing. Within the project, a digital platform called Dialektkartan (The Dialect Map) has been developed. Currently, this platform includes around 700 of the Institute for Language and Folklore’s collection of recorded interviews.
