Verkligen väldigt mycket förstärkningsord : En studie i ungdomars användning av förstärkningsord
Our exam paper is about young adults’ use of intensifiers in school papers. The theoretical background includes previous research about intensifiers in the Swedish language and above all young adults’ use of intensifiers. We have chosen to focus on all intensifying expressions which young adults’ use, because we did not want to limit our research material. We made a comparing study of 25 student papers from year 1999 and 25 student papers from year 2009 to find similarities and differences. Our result answers our four main questions: “How has the frequency of intensifiers changed from year 1999 to year 2009?”, “Which new intensifiers have been added?”, “In which contexts are intensifiers used?” and “Are there any differences in the use of intensifiers between boys and girls?”. The result shows that the number of intensifiers has increased during the 10 year period but that the selection of used intensifiers has decreased. Furthermore is a change in which intensifiers that are used and in which contexts they are used illustrated. The result also shows that boys in year 1999 use intensifiers more frequently than the girls, but in year 2009 the result was opposite.
