Datapoint Nengee/Language abandonment

Language abandonment only takes place to a very limited extent outside of the main settlement areas (i.e. the traditional villages, the towns of Alblina, Moengo and eastern Suriname in general, and outside of St Laurent du Maroni, Mana and western French Guiana in general).
In Paramaribo (Suriname) and Cayenne (French Guiana) some children, mostly from mixed families, may not necessarily learn to speak Nengee in early childhood but only later, when they become adults (from 14 onwards). However, the rate is MUCH lower than for Sranan and Guyanais in both countries and in Europe.
For Suriname, this data is currently being collected by Migge and Léglise.
