Linguistics. WP BRP. НИУ ВШЭ, 2013. No. 04/LIN/2013.
Kozhukhar A. A., Barylnikova D.
This study deals with the phenomenon of multilingualism so common in the areas of a high level of language density. The research was carried out in Daghestan in one of the many spots where languages from several different groups of the East Caucasian family are spoken. Through retrospective interviews (Dobrushina 2013), we investigate whether the ability to speak the language of the neighbors has changed over the last one hundred years.
