Crossing the Line in Quebec and Catalonia: The Consequences of the Linguistically "Mixed" Marriage.
O'Donnell, Paul E.
Language Problems & Language Planning, v24 n3 p233-47 Fall 2000
The linguistically mixed marriage stands at he crossroads of important factors in the future of French in North American and Catalan in Europe: reversing language shift. While Quebec and Catalonia appear strikingly similar, strong evidence indicates that demographic, linguistic, socioeconomic, and even lifestyle factors may make linguistic exogamy favorable to Catalan and disadvantageous to Quebecois French.
