This authoritative collection examines both language contacts in
Scandinavia proper and also contacts with non-Scandinavian languages. The
language situation in Scandinavia is a rich and complex one, yet hitherto
little of the material has been available in English. All the essays have
as their basic tenet that the essence of every language is the way in which
it varies in its development and social use and that this variation is a
result of a whole series of geographical, sociological and linguistic
factors - settlement, conquest, trade and literary bilingualism. Together
they provide a valuable overview of Scandinavian language contacts at both
the synchronic and the diachronic level, which will be of interest not only
to Germanists and Scandinavianists, but also to historical linguists.
