Dutch Immigrants in New Zealand: A Case Study of Language Shift and Language Loss.
Folmer, Jetske
Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, v15 n2 p1-18 1992
Language shift and language loss were studied in three generations of a Dutch immigrant family. Findings from an analysis of letters, interviews, a domain questionnaire, and editing and correction tests suggest increases in language shift with each generation although the degree of loss was rather slow in the first and second generation.
