Abstract:

What motivates some linguistic minorities to maintain their language? Why do
others shift away from it rather quickly? Are there specific conditions -
environmental or personal - influencing these dynamics? What can families and
communities do to pass on their 'threatened' language to the next generation?
These and related questions are investigated in detail in Language Maintenance
and Shift. In this fascinating book, Anne Pauwels analyses the patterns of
language use exhibited by individuals and groups living in multilingual
societies, and explores their efforts to maintain their heritage or minority
language. She explores the various methods used to analyse language
maintenance, from linguistic demography to linguistic biography, and offers
guidance on how to research the language patterns and practices of linguistic
minorities around the world.
