Abstract:

The Handbook of Language Contact offers systematic coverage of the major
issues in this field - ranging from the value of contact explanations in
linguistics, to the impact of immigration, to dialectology - combining new
research from a team of globally renowned scholars, with case studies of
numerous languages.

* An authoritative reference work exploring the major issues in the field of
language contact: the study of how language changes when speakers of
distinct speech varieties interact

* Brings together 40 specially-commissioned essays by an international team
of scholars

* Examines language contact in societies which have significant immigration
populations, and includes a fascinating cross-section of case studies drawing
on languages across the world

* Accessibly structured into sections exploring the place of contact studies
within linguistics as a whole; the value of contact studies for research into
language change; and language contact in the context of work on language
and society

* Explores a broad range of topics, making it an excellent resource for both
faculty and students across a variety of fields within linguistics
