Her research deals with differential attrition of native German in two groups of late bilinguals (emigration after age 15) living in French- or English-speaking contexts. The study concentrates on usage and "retrieval" of grammatical structures using two oral production tasks (naming and sentence construction) and a grammatical judgement task with reaction time measures. The two experimental groups was tested in 1996, so first results are available since the summer 1997.BKopke@univ-tlse2.fr

    Theme: Endangered Languages - What Role for the The Specialist?
    The conference will provide a forum for researchers and activists working for the maintenance of indigenous languages that face an uncertain future.
    In recent years, number of support organizations have established themselves, all aiming to mobilize research effort, popular opinion and money in defence of declining languages.
    The question is often raised of how these outsiders can really help the cause that they have identified. Language communities must have inner strength in order to survive, or at least the will and the means to go on using their traditional tongues. Outside organizations, however well-meaning, cannot supply such qualities directly. Some ask whether the organizations even have the right to try to interfere.
    This conference, the second organized by the Foundation for Endangered Languages, sought answers to one part of this question. How can language specialists, whether professional linguists, educators, media professionals or whoever, actually contribute to language maintenance?
    Some Themes that will be addressed:
    When does the professional best act as an external consultant, when as a team-player? / What are useful relations: among grammarians,lexicographers and sociolinguists? among community-leaders, language-activists and language-scientists? / among ordinary speakers, creative users, broadcasters and publishers?
    What have been great successes in specialist language work, and what motivated the people responsible?
    How does local work benefit from EL support organizations with a global or continental view? Is the need for technical assistance, production of materials, publicity, funding, political agitation?
