We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Has there been research on the variety of a minority language acquired by
children of two parents with different dialects of that minority language?
 Here are two examples: 

a. A child with a Mexican father and a Puerto Rican mother - both of whom
speak a fair amount of Spanish in the home - who grows up in a monolingual
English-speaking area of the U.S.

b. A child of a Quebecoise mother and a French father - who speak French in
the home - growing up in Portugal.

Thanks for any assistance.
