Title: The Changing Languages of Europe
Written By: Bernd Heine
Tania Kuteva
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199297337
Description:

This book shows that the languages and dialects of Europe are becoming
increasingly alike and furthermore that this unifying process goes back to
Roman times, is accelerating, and affects every European language including
those of different families such as Basque and Finnish. The unifying
process involves every grammatical aspect of the languages and operates
through changes so minute that native speakers fail to notice them. The
authors reveal when, how, and why common grammatical structures have
evolved and continue to evolve in processes of change that will transform
the linguistic landscape of Europe.
