Abstract [en]

The main aim of this study was to discover and analyse the language attitudes of young Trinitarians

between 15 – 24 years old who still live in Trinidad, the Beni area (Bolivia) towards the threatened

minority language Moxo Trinitarian. Language attitudes are of importance because they can give

us an idea of the present situation of a minority language. The method applied in the survey was

direct, where the informants had to answer a written questionnaire first followed by an interview.

We used the Likert scale as an instrument to measure the informants’ attitudes. The results of the

study show positive attitudes towards the Moxo language.

The main conclusions of the study were that the informants, in general, showed positive attitudes

towards Moxo, indicating that the main use of the language is mostly in the privacy of their homes

and with friends or to share secrets in front of them who are not

Moxo Trinitarian speakers.
