1. Also partly in its sequel, Jacobson (2001).
2. Space does not permit the consideration of dialect contact. Dialect–standard switching operates on the principles outlined in chapter 5 (Giesbers 1989).
3. For the purpose of this study, 'Dutch–German–English' (etc.) will include trilinguals with these languages, irrespective of acquisition order, which will be stated.
4. The data used here from Tuc Ho-Dac is a sample chosen by him because it contains examples of the phenomena under consideration.
5. There are exceptions such as Molisan-Croatian which is disappearing from its eastern Italian coastal heartland and about half its remaining speakers are in Western Australia (Clissa 2001).

3. The same question was repeated in the August 2001 Census. At the time of writing, no information was available from this census. However, as parents' countries of birth were not elicited in 2001, it will not be possible to estimate second-generation language shift from the 2001 Census data.
4. The first wave of refugees from Vietnam were speakers of Chinese varieties.
5. Hirst (2001) notes an intergenerational decline in Greek-Orthodox affiliation among Greek-Australians–90% first generation, 82% second, 45% third.
6. A similar study is in progress under the direction of Guus Extra across five European cities–Göteborg, Hamburg, Lyon, Madrid and The Hague–comparing language competence, choice, dominance, preference and vitality among young people of several language communities.
