Diglossia Old and New--A Critique.
Timm, Lenora A.
Anthropological Linguistics, v23 n8 p356-67 Dec 1981
Examines problems produced by Fishman's characterization of Ferguson's definition of diglossia in trying to extend it to situations not included in the original definition. Author believes Fishman only focused on the role or domain complementarity of two languages and not the other criteria defined by Ferguson. (Author/BK)
