Meeting Description:

On 15 June 2012 the symposium 'Language Contact in the West Germanic Languages, 400-1200' will be held at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. This event is organised by the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS (UiL OTS) and the Philological Society.

This one-day symposium explores the linguistic effects of different dialect/language contact situations in West Germanic languages during the period 400-1200. The papers presented will focus on five different geographical areas and the languages used there, namely English, Frisian, Dutch, Low German and Central/Upper German. By viewing the dialect/language contact situations from different perspectives, this symposium aims to shed more light on the interrelations (a) amongst the West Germanic languages and (b) between West Germanic, Latin and the Celtic languages.
