On the German Language in America.
Lewis, Brian A.
Sociolinguistic patterns among German immigrants to the United States of America are examined in this paper. Earlier studies in this area, including Wolfgang Viereck's work published in "Orbis" in 1967 and 1968, are examined. Through an analysis of the immigration patterns of the citizens of Glarus, Switzerland, in 1845 to New Glarus, Wisconsin, the author reveals reasons for the decline in community interest in maintaining the Swiss German dialect of the original settlers as the mother tongue.
