Description of research and teaching

Tutkin väitöskirjassani kirosanojen käyttöä ja kääntämistä nykykirjallisuudessa. Tarkastelen ja vertailen tutkimuksessani alun perin suomeksi kirjoitettua ja amerikanenglannista suomennettua nykykaunokirjallisuutta, ja tutkin, millaisia erilaisia tehtäviä ja ominaisuuksia kirosanoilla on kaunokirjallisessa ilmaisussa.
