Title: The Hmong Language in Wisconsin
Subtitle: Language Shift and Pragmatic Change
Written By: Susan Meredith Burt
URL: http://mellenpress.com/mellenpress.cfm?bookid=8127&pc=9
Description:

This work demonstrates the change in how speakers use language to request,
thank, and perform interpersonal verbal tasks in Hmong, an immigrant
language now spoken in Wisconsin, Minnesota and California, as well as in
its native Laos. Since the changes that have taken place in Hmong follow
directly from the language's extended contact with American English, this
book illustrates the localized, specific, pragmatic effects of language
globalization on a small, displaced language community.
