Abstract:

This volume opens a timely discussion about the various theoretical and methodological models being developed to describe the phenomenon of language contact. It focuses mainly on contact resulting from situations of mobility and borders, particularly in Brazil, which offers an example of complex contacts between peoples and languages.

The book focuses on the social effects of language contact, resulting from mobility, linguistic and social practices, and representations and identities in continuous construction. Migration movements, both to and from the country, are the cause of multiple forms of multilingualism, the linguistic, social and cultural effects of which must be analysed.

There is still an absence of work concerning the description of these phenomena and their modality. As such, this volume addresses this gap, discussing the relation between language, culture and identity from different perspectives and concepts.

This publication assembles eleven articles by researchers concerned with language contact, each developing theories and methodologies over distinct objects and fields, offering a variety of discussions within the thematic scope of the book.
