The present volume examines the ways in which linguistic traits may change in a contact situation. It contains an encyclopaedic introduction, which sets out a general theory of contact-induced change, and twelve subsequent chapters, which analyse the effects of language contact on grammatical
systems in a variety of languages belonging to different geographical areas and diverse types.
