Conference Outline:

Contact linguistics represents an area linking different branches of linguistics, such as historical linguistics, dialectology, sociolinguistics, creole studies, language acquisition, etc. This conference strives to provide a comprehensive coverage of current trends on language contact involving Arabic. It does address both contact induced change in Arabic and language change through contact with Arabic. Special focus is on recent debates surrounding Arabic-based pidgins and creoles as well as mixed varieties of written Arabic.
