A conference on languages in contact will be held on November 
25-26, 1999, at the University of Groningen. This conference will 
include sessions devoted to descriptive and theoretical aspects of 
language contact.

The aim of this conference is to discuss language contact. Issues 
for discussion involve pidgins and creoles, minorities and their 
languages, Diaspora situations, 'Sprachbund' phenomena, 
extralinguistic correlates of variety in contact situations, 
problems of endangered languages and the typology of these 
languages.

We have also expanded the program to include a TUTORIAL on
