Title: Language Change in Contact Languages
Subtitle: Grammatical and prosodic considerations
Edited By: J.ClancyClements
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/bct.36
Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 36
Description:

The studies in "Language Change in Contact Languages" showcase the
contributions that the study of contact language varieties make to the
understanding of phenomena such as relexification, transfer, reanalysis,
grammaticalization, prosodic variation and the development of prosodic
systems. Four of the studies deal with morphosyntactic issues while the other
three address questions of prosody. The studies include data from the Atlantic
creoles (Saramaccan, Sranan, Haitian Creole, Jamaican Creole, Trinidadian
Creole, Papiamentu), as well as Singapore English. This volume, originally
pulished as special issue of "Studies in Language" 33:2 (2009), aims to
make the work of several language contact experts available to a wider
audience. The studies will be of use to any student or scholar interested in
different approaches to contact-induced language processes, particularly as
they relate to morphosyntax and prosody.
