We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

I am presently putting together a bid for funding for a project dealing with
lexical attrition where the dialect under threat is a (close) relative of the
language of state. The project is intended to extend beyond Europe. At
present I am considering the Scots of Orkney (in relation to Scottish
Standard English), Silesian dialect (in relation to Standard Polish) and
Okinawan (in relation to Standard Japanese).

If you know of work done on lexical attrition in Silesian or Okinawan or
you would be interested in collaboration, please let me know.
