Summary
"Excellent! Truly thorough coverage of all aspects and areas of language contact. This handbook surveys virtually everything known about the topic to date but also provides much new information and provocative thinking here for the first time. With 40 chapters written by the most stellar scholars in this field, this is an important book, not to be missed." "Lyle Campbell, University of Utah" "This latest addition to Blackwell's authoritative Handbook series is an impressive achievement. The editor has assembled an outstanding team of contributors, who collectively provide a comprehensive and unparalleled survey of the field of language contact, covering both theoretical, conceptual and methodological issues and a wide range of case studies. It will be an invaluable resource for researchers and advanced students alike." "Patrick Stevenson, University of Southampton"--Jacket
