Meeting Description:

The international conference NILCS 2020 will focus on novel perspectives and approaches within the field of contact linguistics. This is a particularly dynamic research field, which often interfaces with other research areas such as sociolinguistics, theoretical linguistics, language acquisition, and language planning, among others.

Studies on language contact are relevant to both past and contemporary linguistic landscapes, where the encounter between two or more languages gives rise to a wide array of contact-induced phenomena ranging from borrowings, structural convergence, and code switching to the emergence of new varieties such as pidgins, creoles, and mixed languages.

NILCS 2021 (originally, 2020) aims to bring together researchers working on language contact from different perspectives with the purpose of enabling fruitful encounters and discussions.
