Datapoint Diu Indo-Portuguese/Language abandonment

Among the Diu Indo-Portuguese speakers residing in Diu, language abandonment is not at all an issue. However, those who migrate may either abandon the language or lose some proficiency, and a few families in which only one of the parents is a speaker of Diu Indo-Portuguese have opted for raising their children in another language (namely, English). Given that Diu is such a multilingual society, the acquisition of new languages tends to be cumulative, in the sense that it does not entail the abandonment of Diu Indo-Portuguese.
