Also, the informants¿ language choice, language dominance, and language preference are presented cumulatively. Derived from this database, a (pseudo)-longitudinal profile and a language vitality index for Turkish youngsters of dif-ferent age groups and, ultimately, of different generations will be construed. The data pre-sented here is derived from the Multilingual Cities Project, which has been carried out among primary school students in six large European cities.
