Abstract:

A number of previous approaches to linguistic borrowing and contact
phenomena in general have concluded that there are no formal
boundaries whatsoever to the kinds of material that can pass from one
language into another. At the same time, various hierarchies
illustrate that some things are indeed more likely to be borrowed than
others. Linguistic Borrowing in Bilingual Contexts addresses both, by
examining claims of no absolute limits and synthesizing various
hierarchies. It observes that all contact phenomena are systematic,
and borrowing is no exception. Regarding forms, the determining
factors lie in the nature of the morphological systems in contact and
how they relate to one another. Two principles are proposed to
determine the nature of the systematicity and interaction: the
Principle of System Compatibility (PSC), and its corollary, the
Principle of System Incompatibility (PSI). Together, these principles
provide a consistent account of the possibilities and limits to
borrowing.
