Abstract


Il lavoro indaga gli atteggiamenti linguistici emergenti dalle narrazioni di famiglie, ove sia presente una storia di migrazione e i fattori che influenzano il benessere generale della famiglia multilingue. Alla luce dei risultati emersi viene proposta un’ipotesi teorica che descrive i fattori di successo della famiglia multilingue, dalla quale si evince in quale modo le sfide familiari, identitarie, sociali e linguistiche si intrecciano tra loro, costruendo un clima di benessere per tutta la famiglia multilingue quando è presente una capacità di gestione consapevole delle zone di conflitto.

 

What are the success factors of multilingual families? The relationship between linguistic attitudes and family and community dynamics

The article focuses on the emotional, cognitive, and social climate in which multilingual families make and influence language choices. It investigates what impact the choices can have on the general well-being of the family, regarding both the intergenerational relationship and the community context. The research suggests that the linguistic attitudes of migrant families can stimulate and implement potential well-being. It consists of the conscious management of the specific and complex dynamic activated in a multilingual family.
