Language Shift Survey

Right, so if you remember my earlier post here:

I've now got a decent (I think) questionnaire to ask people who use Jaffna Tamil. The thing is, I'm not a profesional linguist nor am I an expert on questionnaires. The one I now have is gleamed from what I've got from reading theses and journal articles.

I'd like to know if anyone here has done questionnaires for language maintenence-shift. I'd like your input on my questionnaire- I can e-mail it to you. It'd be good if you can suggest how I can improve the questions I have. I've left uni, so there goes asking any academic for help- most of them don't deal with stuff like this anyway.

If you'd like to comment, leave a comment in my lj.
