The convergence process between Faroese and Faro-Danish

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The topic of this paper is convergence in an asymmetrical bilingual setting, and it will be shown that the outcome of the convergence process is different in the dominant language (L1) from what it is in the receiving language (L2). In L1, there is complication of the receiving language, while there is reduction in the syntax of the L2.
