Abstract:

The book contains 30 descriptive chapters dealing with a specific language
contact situation. The chapters follow a uniform organisation format, being
the narrative version of a standard comprehensive questionnaire previously
distributed to all authors. The questionnaire targets systematically the
possibility of contact influence/grammatical borrowing in a full range of
categories. The uniform structure facilitates a comparison among the
chapters and the languages covered. The introduction describes the setup of
the questionnaire and the methodology of the approach, along with a survey
of the difficulties of sampling in contact linguistics. Two evaluative
chapters, each authored by one of the co-editors, draws general conclusions
from the volume as a whole (one in relation to borrowed grammatical
categories and meaningful hierarchies, the other in relation to the
distribution of Matter and Pattern replication).
