Mixed Native Languages: A Challenge to the Monolithic View of Language.
Backus, Ad
Topics in Language Disorders, v19 n4 p11-22 Aug 1999
Rebuts the monolithic view of language in which languages are discrete entities which clash in bilingual communities by suggesting that immigrant communities tend to develop mixed vernaculars in which children may well achieve fluency in the language of the larger society. Circumstances under which such fluency does not develop are identified. (Author/DB)
