Query:   Has there been research on the outcomes of dialect contact of a minority
language? For example, two dialects of Arabic in contact in France, or
two dialects of Spanish in the U.S. (such as Zentella's 1990 piece on
lexical familiarity)? They don't need to be immigrant languages. I'm
happy to compile & post responses. Many thanks in advance.
