Silva-Corvalan, Carmen


Languages in a situation of contact, whether receding or being maintained by their speakers, are characterized by constant and rapid change. Thus, they provide a testing ground for hypotheses about processes of linguistic change. In this original study of an intergenerational sample of Spanish-English bilinguals in Los Angeles County, Carmen Silva-Corvalan explores in depth the linguistic, cognitive, and social processes underlying language maintenance, as well as changes characteristic of language shift and loss, bringing together analytical techniques employed in sociolinguistics, functional syntax, and discourse analysis.Silva-Corvalan, Carmen is the author of 'Language Contact and Change : Spanish in Los Angeles', published 1994 under ISBN 9780198242871 and ISBN 0198242875.
