 Americans in Europe - A Sociolinguistic Perspective:
 Probes in Northern and Western Europe
 Edited by Gabrielle Varro and Sally Boyd

		Mouton de Gruyter * Berlin * New York

This issue looks into the daily lives of Americans in Europe, the
contacts they establish as permanent residents, how they cope with
their new languages, whether they maintain English and transmit it to
their children, how attitudes and self-perceptions change over time
according to national, social, and family contexts.

It is a unique attempt to analyze the sociological, historical,
political, and linguistic backdrop against which their experience
should be understood: whether living as part of the local scenery
(`mixed' couples) or as Americans in residence, they are individuals
who in some instances are seen to reflect the particular status of the
US in the world.
