Abstract

In this paper I analyze the ongoing converging and diverging processes between Mennonite Low German (MLG) and Standard German in six Mennonite colonies in the Americas. The statistically detectable differences in the informants' behavior with regard to five linguistic phenomena and the comparison between all colonies and between different age-gender-subgroups in three of these colonies offer new and promising insights into the structural and sociolinguistic conditioning of converging and diverging.
