Language contact phenomena describe the linguistic varieties, or intrusions of one variety into another, that arise when speakers confront a new language. Language contact is one of the principal causes of linguistic change and diversity, and of central interest in historical, social, anthropological, and general linguistics. This book provides an account of contact outcome theories, including the author's own. It should have coursebook potential for advanced undergraduates and graduates.
