Abstract:

The current volume brings together sociolinguistic analyses of
language contact along the Romance-Germanic Language Border, shedding
more light on the variable and the universal elements in language
contact and shift. It covers the whole range of the border, from
French Flanders through South Tirol. Every part of it has been treated
by outstanding experts. They describe the current state of the art in
"their" portion of the language border and include information on the
legal and/or practical status of the language border and the status
and function of all languages concerned. Attitudinal and language
planning initiatives as well as the standardisation status of the
regionally official and minority languages are discussed. Language
borrowing, code switching and other language contact phenomena are
analysed in detail.
