Título Family Language Policies of Non-Native Bilingual Parents raising Bilingual First Language Acquisition children in monolingual contexts
Autor(es) García López, María Elena
Abstract Non-Native Bilingual Parenting (NNBP) is an emergent type of bilingual family setting where some parents decide to raise their children bilingually in their second language despite living in monolingual communities where their native language is spoken. However, research into family bilingualism has not yet given it much attention. The present survey study aimed to fill this gap in the literature by exploring the Family Language Policy (FLP) of NNBP families and the key factors that affect and shape their attitudes and linguistic practices. That is, the parents’ competence in the target language and the children’s growing competence in it. Data was collected by means of a parental self-report questionnaire and processed using IBM SPSS statistics software. Descriptive statistics revealed that One Parent One Language (OPOL) was the most common interaction strategy and that most parents used majority language with each other. Besides, the most frequent language socialization practices for this group were identified as well as their common ideologies. Most notably, low reported rates of code- mixing, a very strong impact belief, moderate concern about their non-native model, and the absence of negative opinions towards code-mixing. High degrees of continuity in language choice were also reported. Non-parametric tests found that the parents’ level of competence in the target language affected some of their attitudes and practices, but the children’s competence did not. The findings from this family based survey helped gain better insights into NNBP and Non-Native Bilingual First Language Acquisition (NNBFLA) children’s linguistic environments.
