Abstract

This MSc dissertation investigated first-language attrition in the Polish speech of an adult Polish native speaker who has been living in Scotland for eight years. The hypotheses of the study assumed that the subject would display attrition in the areas of interface: anaphora, pronoun mapping, strong and weak personal pronouns, as well as possessive and possessive-reflexive pronouns. The subject performed 4 tests for this analysis: (1) story-retelling task to retell a well-known story (2) written grammatical tests (3) verbal fluency tasks (4) personal history retelling. The data for tests 1-3 are provided here. The data for test (4) has not made public. See the attached README file for more details.
