Description:

The contributors to this collection address issues of definition and
theory of linguistic areas, analyze the process of convergence, and
introduce methods to assess the impact of language contact across
geographical zones. New case studies are introduced which extend the
corpus of areas described so far. They are accompanied by discussions that
revisit some of the more well-established linguistic areas.
