Abstract:
			
This book is a study of the L1 attrition of German among German Jews
who emigrated to anglophone countries under the Nazi regime. It places
the study of language attrition within the historical and
sociocultural framework of Weimar and Nazi Germany, applying issues of
identity and identification to first language loss and
maintenance. Morphosyntactic features of German are looked at in free
spoken discourse, in an analysis of both 'interferences' or 'errors'
and their overall (correct) use. The picture of L1 proficiency which
emerges from these investigations is then related to a taxonomy of
intensity of persecution, clearly demonstrating this to be the
decisive factor in language attrition, while showing other factors
such as age at emigration and intermediate use to be inconclusive.In
order to give a full and tangible picture of language attrition and
maintenance, the book comes with an Audio-CD, featuring excerpts from
more than twenty of the interviews analyzed.
