Title:Report on language proficiency, language use, and language attitudes among the Puyuma

This report summarizes research on language maintenance and language shift among the Puyuma of Taitung County, Taiwan. The purpose of the research was to ascertain the feasibility of a language development program among the Puyuma. This report makes clear that a language development program would not likely alter the on-going process of language shift. In a process that has spanned the twentieth century, the Puyuma language has receded as the Puyuma people acquired proficiency first in Japanese and Taiwanese and more recently in Mandarin.
