Linguistic LingField(s):  Historical Linguistics

Query:   I am presently putting together a bid for funding for a project dealing with
lexical attrition where the dialect under threat is a (close) relative of the
language of state. The project is intended to extend beyond Europe. At
present I am considering the Scots of Orkney (in relation to Scottish
Standard English), Silesian dialect (in relation to Standard Polish) and
Okinawan (in relation to Standard Japanese).

If you know of work done on lexical attrition in Silesian or Okinawan or
you would be interested in collaboration, please let me know.
