Abstract:

Is Africa a linguistic area (Heine & Leyew 2008)? The present volume
consists of sixteen papers highlighting the linguistic geography of Africa,
covering, in particular, southern Africa with its Khoisan languages. A wide range
of phenomena are discussed to give an overview of the pattern of social,
cultural, and linguistic interaction that characterizes Africa's linguistic
geography. Most contributors to the volume discuss language contact and areal
diffusion in Africa, although some demonstrate, with examples from non-African
linguistic data, including Amazonian and European languages, how language
contact may lead to structural convergence. Others investigate contact
phenomena in social-cultural behavior. The volume makes a large contribution
toward bringing generalized theory to data-oriented discussions. It is intended to
stimulate further research on contact phenomena in Africa.
