The North West Caucasian Adyghe language provides ideal conditions for the
study of language change because of the sociolinguistic history of its
speakers and their contact with typologically and genetically different
languages. This study examines the socio-cultural and sociolinguistic
factors which determine dominance relations in Adyghe-Russian language
contact in the Caucasus and Adyghe-Turkish language contact in Turkey in
the present century. The analysis is based on text material in the Abdzakh
dialect of Adyghe, collected during fieldwork in Turkey (1979-1990) and
Adygheya in the Caucasus (1990-1994).

In the comparisons of both contact situations, the focus is on the
description of the linguistic features. The kind and extent of interference
are dealt with on different levels of the Adyghe language. Lexical
interference includes the borrowing of different parts of speech and
devices of integration in Adyghe. Structural interference includes changes
in Adyghe phonology, morphology, and syntax due to foreign elements
(Russian and Turkish, respectively).

After comparisons of the decisive social factors, the main part of the
study closes with a tentative prognosis regarding the process of language
change in the Abdzakh dialect and the Adyghe language in general in Turkey
and the Republik of Adygheya in the Caucasus.

The book consists of eight chapters with an appendix which includes the
proposal of a Latin-Turkish based alphabet for Adyghe and a collection of
Abdzakh texts with a German translation.
