When Learning a Second Language Means Losing the First.
Fillmore, Lily Wong
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v6 n3 p323-47 Sep 1991
Discusses a nationwide study of language shift among language-minority children in the United States. Immigrant and American Indian families were surveyed to determine the effects of children's learning of English in preschool on their family language patterns. Findings suggest that primary language loss can be very costly to the children, their families, and society. (Author/GLR)
