Title: Language Contact and Contact Languages
Edited By: Peter Siemund
Noemi Kintana
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=HSM%207
Series Title: Hamburg Studies on Multilingualism 7
Description:

This new volume on language contact and contact languages presents
cutting-edge research by distinguished scholars in the field as well as by
highly talented newcomers. It has two principal aims: to analyze language
contact from different perspectives - notably those of language typology,
diachronic linguistics, language acquisition and translation studies; and
to describe, explain, and elaborate on universal constraints on language
contact. The individual chapters offer systematic comparisons of a wealth
of contact situations and the book as a whole makes a valuable contribution
to deepening our understanding of contact-induced language change. With its
broad approach, this work will be welcomed by scholars of many different
persuasions.
