Abstract:

Mixed Languages are speech varieties that arise in bilingual settings,
often as markers of ethnic separateness. They combine structures
inherited from different parent languages, often resulting in odd and
unique splits that present a challenge to theories of contact-induced
change as well as genetic classification. This collection of articles
is devoted to the theoretical and empirical controversies that
surround the study of Mixed Languages. Issues include definitions and
prototypes, similarities and differences to other contact languages
such as pidgins and creoles, the role of codeswitching in the
emergence of Mixed Languages, the role of deliberate and conscious
mixing, the question of the existence of a Mixed Language continuum,
and the position of Mixed Languages in general models of language
change and contact-induced change in particular. An introductory
chapter surveys the current study of Mixed Languages. Contributors
include leading historical linguists, contact linguists and
typologists.
