Three Generations, Two Languages, One Family: Language Choice and Language Shift in a Chinese Community in Britain

封面
Multilingual Matters, 1994 - 221 頁
This book offers a sociolinguistic study of the Chinese community in Britain. It focuses on generational changes in language choice and code-switching patterns of Chinese immigrant families. The social network model developed in the study is intended to account for the relationship between community norms of language use and conversational strategies of individual speakers, and for the relation of both to the broader social, economic and political context.
