The contributors to this collection address issues of definition and theory of linguistic areas, analyze the process of convergence, and introduce methods to assess the impact of language contact across geographical zones. New case studies are introduced which extend the corpus of areas described so far. They are accompanied by discussions that revisit some of the more well-established linguistic areas.
