Abstract:

This book deals with the consequences of converging and diverging processes
and their development in language contact situations. It provides insights
into the various forms of language contact and the conditions under which
bilingual speakers master their everyday life in bilingual communities. Its
nine contributions cover both theoretical and typological aspects, such as
the classification of languages, the role of language contact, linguistic
complexity and spontaneous speech innovations, and convergence and
divergence processes in translation, (morpho)syntax and
phonology/phonetics. Taken together, these studies provide challenges for
linguistic theories that generalize from situations of monolingualism
suggesting instead that a sound linguistic theory cannot be a theory for
just one single, isolated language but must be a theory for at least two
languages. It must also account for the fact that some structures involved
in contact situations are not kept apart but develop in such a way that the
distance decreases between the languages involved.

Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics
