This paper explores the connection of 10 Polish adolescents residing in Norway to Polish language use and preservation. Stance is presented as an analytical device to approximate interview data. Four large categories of framing Polish in interviews are distinguished. Interactional evolution of stance towards Polish is assayed in interview excerpts. Ideological implications of partakers’ accounts are debated.
