Title: Studies on German-Language Islands
Edited By: MichaelT.Putnam
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SLCS%20123
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 123
Description:

The contributions in this volume present cutting-edge theoretical and
structural analyses of issues surrounding German-language islands, or
Sprachinseln, throughout the world. The individual topics of study
in this volume focus on various aspects of these German-language islands
such as (but not limited to) phonological, morphological, syntactic,
semantic, and pragmatic aspects of these languages under investigation.
Collectively, the body of research contained in this volume explores
significantly under-researched topics in the fields of language contact and
language attrition and illustrates how this on-going research can be
enhanced through the application of formal theoretical frameworks and
structural analyses.
