Abstract:

'Language attrition' describes the loss of, or changes to, grammatical and otherfeatures of a language as a result of declining use by speakers who havechanged their linguistic environment and language habits. In such a situationthere may, for example, be simplification in the tense system or in certainproperties of subordinate clauses; some vocabulary items might fall into disuseand phonetic features may be restructured. These changes can be affected byfeatures of the speaker's environment, but also by his or her attitudes andprocesses of identification. This book provides a detailed and up-to-dateintroduction to the way in which language attrition can affect language, as wellas to the extra- and sociolinguistic features involved. It also familiarizes thereader with experimental approaches to attrition and data analysis techniquesand provides hands-on guidelines on how to apply them.
