This book is a study of the L1 attrition of German among German Jews who emigrated to anglophone countries under the Nazi regime. It places the study of language attrition within the historical and sociocultural framework of Weimar and Nazi Germany, applying issues of identity and identification to first language loss and maintenance. Morphosyntactic features of German are looked at in free spoken discourse, in an analysis of both ‘interferences’ or ‘errors’ and their overall (correct) use. The picture of L1 proficiency which emerges from these investigations is then related to a taxonomy of intensity of persecution, clearly demonstrating this to be the decisive factor in language attrition, while showing other factors such as age at emigration and intermediate use to be inconclusive.In order to give a full and tangible picture of language attrition and maintenance, the book comes with an Audio-CD, featuring excerpts from more than twenty of the interviews analyzed.

Table of Contents
“Schmid's outstanding study brings together a well-theorized and comprehensive linguistic analysis with an in-depth sociohistorical examination of life trajectories of German Jews in anglophone countries.”
“Overall, the monograph is an outstanding source for researchers in language attrition and bilingualism. It summarises the current state of research in the field and proposes new venues in methodology and interpretation of results.”
“By focusing on a group who had been deprived of their former identity, this innovative monograph will make a substantial contribution to the language-identity nexus as well as to language attrition.”
“Schmid's work is very effective in addressing head-on a topic of research that investigates many underdeveloped and controversial issues. This work adds to the ongoing discussion of structural and sociolinguistic decay of variants of German - both in the form of L1 attrition of 'standard' German and German American heritage dialects (i.e., Sprachinseln) - over time. ”
