The Ecological Impact of a Dictionary.
Liddicoat, Anthony J.
Current Issues in Language Planning, v1 n3 p424-29 2000
Discusses the impact of the development of a dictionary of Jersey Norman French. The dictionary has created a perception among speakers of Jersey French that they did not know the language. This perception appears to be the result of the ecological change that the dictionary produced by repositioning the language from an oral habitat to a written one. (Author/VWL)
