Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


One of the most significant contributions of this book to the field is bringing together various interdisciplinary perspectives on the same topic to gain a deeper insight into the role of families in the acculturation process, language maintenance and shift. Using evidence from sociology, sociolinguistics, educational linguistics and cross-cultural psychology, we examine the outcomes of language and cultural contact in minority-majority settings.
