Crago, Martha B.; Chen, Clair; Genesee, Fred; Allen, Stanley M.
Journal for a Just and Caring Education, v4 n1 p78-95 Jan 1998
Parents in communities experiencing rapid language and culture change face particular discourse issues as they construct their homes' language and culture. This article discusses particular language decisions and influences faced by families from two Inuit communities in Arctic Quebec. In most homes, there were fluid boundaries with no conscious strategies for language use aimed at children expected to learn two languages. (26 references) (MLH)
