    Book synopsis: This book is the second of two volumes following from the Third International Conference on Maintenance and Loss of Minority Languages, which was held in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, in 1998. The papers in this volume describe a wide variety of language contact settings in which one or more languages are in a process of shift or loss. The papers investigate these processes from sociological, linguistic, historical, political, and psychological perspectives and combinations of these. The languages concerned are Alsace, American-Hebrew, American-Lithuanian, Australian-Turkish, Basque, Canadian-German, Finnish, Dutch-Italian, Dutch-Turkish, Gascon, German-French, Iowa-Dutch, Italian-German, Istro-Romance and Istro-Rumene, New Zealand-Dutch, Pomattertitsch, Punjabi/Urdu, Springbokdeutsch, Tujia, and Yiddish.
