Dear Corpora Members
I am looking for studies in Language Shift which use corpus based
techniques for data analysis. Here what I want to request are studies how
language B is dominated by language A and looses its vocabulary, morphology
and syntax (shifting towards units provided by language A). So what I am
interested in are researches which focus more on linguistic aspects of such
shift or change. I want to know theories of such change in a dominated
language, and settings in which such studies were conducted, and lastly
perhaps what they predicted about the future of dominated language
(possible life time left, for example).
(I wrote 'corpus' because such studies would require language data over a
period of time to compare and find contrasts in present day language B, and
compare the results to features of language A to identify which features
replaced originals of language B).
I have tried to lay down what I am looking for. My apologies if it is still
vague or hard to grasp.
I will highly appreciate any help.
