Contact Languages

A Comprehensive Guide

Ed. by Bakker, Peter / Matras, Yaron

Series:Language Contact and Bilingualism [LCB] 6

DE GRUYTER MOUTON

    Aims and Scope

    This volume deals with several types of contact languages: pidgins, creoles, mixed languages, and multi-ethnolects. It also approaches contact languages from two perspectives: an historical linguistic perspective, more specifically from a viewpoint of genealogical linguistics, language descent and linguistic family tree models; and a sociolinguistic perspective, identifying specific social contexts in which contact languages emerge.
