Meeting Description:

The conference brings together specialists of extra-European language contact
constellations with a Romance language as donor language and an autochthonous
language of Africa, Asia, Oceania or the Americas as recipient language. For
the first time ever, overt and covert grammatical and lexical borrowing from
Romance languages is viewed from a strictly comparative perspective in order to
facilitate generalisations. In addition to the various case studies, a number
of theoretical approaches to language contact phenomena in general are
presented too and thus it is made possible to go beyond the role played by
French, Italian, Spanish and/or Portuguese in the re-shaping of lexicon and
grammar of languages outside Europe.
