This volume presents a selection from the papers given at the 13th
International Conference on Historical Linguistics. It offers a window
on the current state of the art in historical linguistics: the papers
cover a wide range of different languages, different language
families, and different approaches to the study of linguistic change,
ranging from optimality theory, theories of grammaticalization and the
invisible hand, treatments of language contact and creolization to the
linguistic consequences of political correctness. Among the languages
under discussion are Akkadian, Catalan, Dutch, Finnish, Japanese,
Sranan, Western Malayo-Polynesian, Yiddish, and a variety of Romance
and Native American languages.
