Willemyns, Roland
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v18 n1 p54-66 1997
Discusses the consequences of "language shift through erosion" on the basis of an analysis of the gradual disappearance of Dutch as a native language in French Flanders. Sketches the theoretical language-in-contact framework, breaking down the chronological evolution into diglossic, bilingual and (almost) monolingual phases. (37 references) (Author/CK)
