    Overview

    Tracing contact-induced features in Chinese from the 3rd century to the present day.


    Second language acquisition is one of the key modes of language contact in history of the Chinese language.

    Aims and Scope

    The book sheds light on the fascinating evolution of contact-induced grammatical features in Chinese syntax. For more than two thousand years, Chinese has been in large scale language contact with languages such as Sanskrit, Mongolian, and Manchurian. Originally published in Chinese in renowned academic journals, the contributions are made available for the first time to the English speaking world.
