Título:The Handbook of Language Contact, 2nd Edition
Autor/a:Hickey, Raymond
Año de publicación:2020

The second edition of the definitive reference on contact studies and linguistic change provides extensive new research and original case studies.


Language contact is a dynamic area of contemporary linguistic research that studies how language changes when speakers of different languages interact. Accessibly structured into three sections, The Handbook of Language Contact explores the role of contact studies within the field of linguistics, the value of contact studies for language change research, and the relevance of language contact for sociolinguistics. This authoritative volume presents original findings and fresh research directions from an international team of prominent experts. Thirty-seven specially-commissioned chapters cover a broad range of topics and case studies of contact from around the world. 


Now in its second edition, this valuable reference has been extensively updated with new chapters on topics including globalization, language acquisition, creolization, code-switching, and genetic classification. Fresh case studies examine Romance, Indo-European, African, Mayan, and many other languages in both the past and the present. Addressing the major issues in the field of language contact studies, this volume: 

  • Includes a representative sample of individual studies which re-evaluate the role of language contact in the broader context of language and society

  • Offers 23 new chapters written by leading scholars

  • Examines language contact in different societies, including many in Africa and Asia

  • Provides a cross-section of case studies drawing on languages across the world

The Handbook of Language Contact, Second Edition is an indispensable resource for researchers, scholars, and students involved in language contact, language variation and change, sociolinguistics, bilingualism, and language theory.
