A Mother Tongue Spoken Mainly by Fathers.
Corsetti, Renato
Language Problems and Language Planning, v20 n3 p263-73 Fall 1996
Reviews what is known about Esperanto as a home language and first language. Recorded cases of Esperanto-speaking families are known since 1919, and in nearly all of the approximately 350 families documented, the language is spoken to the children by the father. The data suggests that this "artificial bilingualism" can be as successful as "natural bilingualism." (31 references) (Author/CK)
