Bilingualism and Ethnic Identity in a Nupe-Yoruba Border Town in Nigeria.
Oyetade, Solomon O.
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v17 n5 p373-84 1996
Discusses a study on bilingualism and factors of ethnic identity in Saare/Tsaragi, a border area in Nigeria where two languages are used regularly. Interviews elicited information on language ability and use, language attitudes, and interethnic relations. Results indicate similar patterns between groups of bilingual ability and attitudes but suggest bilingualism alone can not neutralize ethnic identity. (21 references) (Author/CK)
