Query:   I'm beginning work on linguistic attrition (particularly lexical attrition) in
language 'islands' in Europe which are now in close contact with a
dominant near relative. Any references in any language to any of the
following varieties would be much appreciated:

- Traditional Polish dialects of Silesia (i.e., descended from pre-1945
local varieties)

- Traditional varieties spoken on Gotland (Sweden)

- Traditional varieties spoken in Skåne (Sweden)

- Tsakonian (Greece)

- Trebizond and Pontic varieties spoken in Greece

Many thanks,

Robert McColl Millar
