This article presents a study of language maintenance and language attitudes conducted among Baloch immigrants in Sweden by means of questionnaires. Among the issues studied we find proficiency in Swedish, Persian and Balochi, language use in the family and in other domains as well as language attitudes and ethnic identification. A smaller section compares the results among the Baloch with results from two other ethnic groups from Iran, the Persians and the Armenians.
