Abstract:

This book deals systematically with communication problems in the
Roman world where numerous languages apart from Latin and Greek were
spoken. How did the Romans communicate with their subjects in the
remoter parts of the Empire? What linguistic policies did they
pursue? Differing forms of bilingualism developed, which had a
significant effect on the way the Romans and their subjects thought,
spoke and wrote. A wide range of cultural, historical and linguistic
questions concerning the varying developments in bilingualism are
addressed.

Introduction; 1. Languages in contact with Latin; 2. Code-switching;

concluding remarks.
