Nativity, Intermarriage, and Mother-Tongue Shift.
Stevens, Gillian
American Sociological Review, v50 n1 p74-83 Feb 1985
Discusses intergenerational language shift as a function of intra- and intergroup relations, focusing on patterns of linguistic and ethnic intermarriage. Analyzes 1976 Survey of Income and Education data and concludes that, in the United States, non-English languages disappear between generations as social interaction widens to include associations outside the ethnic descent group.
