Linguistic Intermarriage in the United States.
Stevens, Gillian; Schoen, Robert
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n1 p267-79 Feb 1988
Examined linguistic and educational marriage patterns for native-born Americans in six language groups while controlling for population age, sex, education, and linguistic composition. Found that linguistic homogamy was more pronounced for persons of lower educational status. Education was more salient than language in marriage choices of Americans whose first language was French, German, Italian, or Polish. (Author/NB)
