German Minority Children in the Danish Border Region: Code-Switching and Interference.
Pedersen, Karen Margrethe
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v8 n1-2 p111-20 1987
Children from the German minority in Denmark were studied as part of a longitudinal sociolinguistic research project. Most spoke the Jutland (a Danish) dialect and picked up German as a second language when they started preschool, resulting in code-switching and interference in some cases, which appear to be manifestations of linguistic creativity with bilingual children.
