From the Back Cover:

Language contact has an impact upon virtually all aspects of language change, and is increasingly a major topic of research within linguistics. The Handbook of Language Contact encompasses every area of language contact in a systematic and focused approach, and contains 40 specially commissioned essays by a team of globally renowned scholars who offer a wide-ranging exploration of the field. The volume contains numerous case studies from languages across the world, attesting to the variety and linguistic significance of this subject.

This authoritative Handbook is accessibly structured into sections exploring the place of contact studies within linguistics as a whole; the value of contact studies for research into language change; and language contact in the context of work on language and society. The final section of the volume offers a representative cross-section of individual studies which reappraise the role of language contact in their respective contexts. The Handbook is an essential reference for linguists working in the fields of language contact and change, language theory, sociolinguistics, and bilingualism.
