Stability of a Bilingual Situation and Arumanian Bilingualism.
Afendras, Evangelos A.
The stability of an ethnic minority's language in a bilingual situation is viewed as a function of: (1) level of literacy in each of the two languages; (2) economic, social, and political power as related to the two languages; (3) geographic and social mobility; (4) social integration within each language group and across groups; (5) amount and type of communication between the two language groups; and (7) amount of contact of either language with related linguistic communities outside. These factors are discussed with respect to the Macedonian Rumanians (Arumanians), a nomadic sheep-herding people of northern Greece and Macedonia. A bibliography and a map of Arumanian migratory patterns are appended. (JB)
