Language Shift and Narrative Performance: On the Structure and Function of Arvanitika Narratives.
Tsitispis, Lukas D.
Language in Society, v17 n1 p61-86 Mar 1988
Examines the creative manipulation of certain narrative devices in modern Greek and in Tosk Albanian to show (1) how narrative performances become ways of relating historical events and past experiences in present-day life; and (2) that studies of language death should more intensely use ethnography of the speaking paradigm to detect sensitive areas of speech behavior and change.
