Abstract:

This collection of articles takes up the issue of Contact Morphology raised
by David Wilkins in 1996. In the majority of contact-related studies,
morphology is at best a marginal topic. According to the extant borrowing
hierarchies, bound morphology is copied only rarely, if at all, because
morphological copies presuppose long-term intensive contact with prior
massive borrowing of content words and function words. On the other hand,
especially in studies of morphological change, contact is often identified
as the decisive factor which triggers the disintegration of morphological
systems. However, it remains to be seen whether these two standard
treatments of morphology in contact situations exhaust the phenomenology of
Contact Morphology.

The 14 papers of the present volume shed new light on the behavior of
morphology under the conditions of language contact. Fresh empirical data
from 40 languages world-wide are presented and new theory-based concepts
are discussed. "Morphologies in Contact" is a first in the history of both
morphology and language contact studies. It is meant to mark the beginning
of an international research program which explores the entire range of
aspects connected to morphologies in contact and thus, paves the way for a
full-blown Contact Morphology qua linguistic discipline.
