Parents’ representations of the family language policy within bilingual families in Luxembourg: Choices, motivations, strategies and children’s language development
The chapter analyses participants’ representations of the linguistic practices within bi-/ multilingual families in Luxembourg. Through ethnographic interviews, I focus on five families with diverse linguistic profiles. I explore parents’ language use prior to the birth of the children and the family language policy after the birth of the children, and analyse how parents implement particular communication strategies.
