Maintenance and Loss of Minority Languages, 26-27 November 1998
Koningshof Conference Center, Veldhoven, The Netherlands
The conference will consist of three sections. The first section addresses the sociological and social-psychological explanatory context in which language shift processes take place. The second section deals with language attrition from a psycholinguistic perspective, and the third is fully devoted to the building of an integrated explanatory framework for processes of language shift and loss. In memory of Willem Fase, one of the initiators of the First and Second Conference on Maintenance and Loss of Minority Languages, who died in 1997, a new forum called the Willem Fase Lecture has been set up. This plenary lecture forum will be granted to a promising scholar, to be selected from the abstracts submitted.
