Title: Language Contact
Subtitle: New perspectives
Edited By: BobdeJonge

Series Title: IMPACT: Studies in Language and Society 28
Description:

The study of languages in contact is an ever-relevant topic in linguistics,
especially at present times when increasing globalization leads to a number
of new contact situations. This volume features ten papers on various
aspects of language contact by leading specialists in the field. In these
papers, contact-induced change in a wide variety of languages is approached
from various perspectives, reflecting the current state of affairs in
language contact studies. The first main theme in the volume is related to
the linguistic effects of migration, both in the present and in the past,
and both in the standard language spoken by ethnic minorities, and in
immigrant languages that are influenced by the standard. The second theme
concerns border areas, a traditional treasure trove for the study of
contact phenomena. The third theme is about contact effects without
physical contact, as well as the role played by translators in this process.
