Abstract

Segregation is a widely-observed phenomenon through history, different cultures and around the world. This paper addresses how in a network of immigrants segregation emerges from friendship homophily. The simulation results show that homophily results in clusters of lower and higher local language use. A mathematical analysis provides a more in depth understanding of the phenomena observed in the simulations.
