This book examines the Croatian speech of 100 Croatian-English bilingual adults in Melbourne. The focus of this study is directed at the transference of English words and forms in otherwise Croatian speech.

Furthermore, grammatical structures divergent from those found in homeland Croatian are presented. They reveal possible consequences of contact-induced language change. As such, this work represents a recent contribution to the study of code-switching and languages in contact.…mehr
