Abstract [en]

The present study of language maintenance and langugage attitudes is based on a questionnaire study among Iranian immigrants belonging to three ethnic groups (Persians, Baloch and Armenians) in Sweden. There are considerable variations among second generation immigrants of these three groups when it comes to maintenance of home language versus shift to Swedish. The author tries to analyse and explain these differences in the light of observations she has during more than 20 years of contact with Iranians from these three groups in Sweden.
