Part of the Publications of the Resèarch Group for European Migration Problems book series (REMP, volume 17)


The preceding pages have described certain aspects of a specific bilingual community — that of the Yugoslav-Americans in San Pedro, California. Following a short history of Yugoslav immigration to the U.S. and specifically Dalmatian immigration to the San Pedro region, we considered briefly the linguistic problems involved in describing language contact and immigrant bilingualism. and surveyed the relevant literature. We then outlined a framework for describing English interference in San Pedro Serbocroatian speech, and presented in some detail material gathered from seventeen informants representative of this community.
