Contact Linguistics is a critical investigation of what happens to the grammars of languages when bilingual speakers use both their languages in the same clause. It consolidates earlier insights and presents the new theoretical and empirical work of a scholar whose ideas have had a fundamental impact on the field. It also shows that bilingual data offer a revealing window on the structure of the language faculty. Carol Myers-Scotton examines the nature of major contact phenomena, especially lexical borrowing, grammatical convergence, codeswitching, first language attrition, mixed languages, and the development of creoles. She argues forcefully that types of contact phenomena often seen as separate in fact result from the same processes and can be explained by the same principles. Her discussion centers around two new models derived from the Matrix Language Frame model, previously applied only to codeswitching. One model recognizes four types of morphemes based on their different patterns of distribution across contact phenomena; its key hypothesis is that distribution depends on differential access to the morphemes in the production process. The other analyzes three levels of abstract lexical structure whose splitting and recombination across languages in bilingual speech explains many contact outcomes. This is an important volume, of unusual relevance for theories of competence and performance and vital for all those concerned with language contact. Carol Myers-Scotton is a Carolina Distinguished Professor of Linguistics at the University of South Carolina. She is a specialist in language contact phenomena and sociolinguistics and has a special interest in East and Southern African linguistics. In 1993, she published two volumes on codeswitching, Social Motivations for Codeswitching: Evidence from Africa, and Duelling Languages: Grammatical Structure in Codeswitching (both OUP). She has also edited a volume of essays on language and literature (OUP 1998) and published many articles in her areas of interest.

The papers in this collection throw fresh light on the relation between language contact and contrastive linguistics. The book focuses equally on the mutual influence of linguistic systems in contact and on the language contrasts that govern the linguistic behaviour of the bilingual speaker.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 2,0, University of Rostock (Anglistik/ Amerikanistik), course: HS: Contact Linguistics and Mixed-Language Genesis: the Case of English, 17 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: As the topic of this terms seminar Contact Linguistics and Mixed-Language Genesis: the Case of English" was, I soon thought about the idea to write this term paper about Spanish speaking people living in the south of the United States of America. As a student of both languages, it is interesting for me to see how the so- called Hispanics and Americans live together on American territory and in which way both world languages influence each other. Is there also an influence of Spanish on English, or is it just the other way around? I would like to have a closer look on the term "Spanglish," what it means and as what it could be described in linguistical terms. Is it already an independent language or could it become one? As a starting point it might be interesting to give an overview of the historical and contemporary situation of Hispanics in the USA. Proceeding from that introduction, I will come to the linguistical aspects. First, I will give a few explanation of terms that might be interesting in the case of Spanish speaking people living in the USA. On that foundation I will attempt not just to have a look on the term Spanglish, but with the help of an example also try to define what kind of linguistical phenomenon it might be. Finally, I will try to examine the sociocultural circumstances that can be found in those areas like New Mexico, Texas, California, Colorado or Arizona. A conclusion shall summarize the results of my work and I will try to express my view on the entire situation of Hispanics in the USA.

Der seit 30 Jahren immer häufiger verwendete Terminus "Kontaktlinguistik" bezeichnet ein multidisziplinäres Forschungsgebiet, das - eingebunden in den Gesamtrahmen der Linguistik - auf die Mitberücksichtigung zahlreicher soziologischer, psychologischer, ethnologischer, geographischer, historischer, politischer und anthroplogischer Sehweisen angewiesen ist. Die Herausgeber des Handbuchs verstehen unter Kontaktlinguistik eine von Linguisten aller Fachrichtungen gegenüber dem Phänomen des sozialen Kontakts zweier oder mehrerer natürlicher Einzelsprachen eingenommene Forschungshaltung und die daraus sich ergebenden theoretischen und praktischen Resutate. Sie sind sich dabei aber der Tatsache voll bewußt, daß kontaktlinguistisches Forschen keine Neuerung des 20. Jahrhunderts ist, sondern vielmehr schon immer integrativer Bestandteil von Linguistik und Philologie seit deren Existenz als Einzelwissenschaft war. Aus systematischen, arbeitspraktischen, aber auch wissenschafts-historischen Gründen wird jedoch im Rahmen der Konzeption dieses Handbuchs davon ausgegangen, daß von Kontaktlinguistik im engeren Sinne erst in der Nachfolge von Uriel Weinreichs Buch "Languages in Contact" (1953) gesprochen werden kann. Hinsichtlich der Eigenständigkeit der Kontaktlinguistik wird auf zwei heute sehr wesentliche Faktoren hingewiesen: 1) auf den sachlich relevanten Umstand der in neuerer Zeit immens gesteigerten Mobilität vieler Völker, Kulturen und Kulturgüter (und damit auch von deren Sprachen) und 2) auf die wissenschaftliche Notwendigkeit der integrativen Zusammenfügung ansonsten getrennt operierender Einzelwissenschaften zu einer möglichst umfassenden wissenschaftlichen Analyse mehrsprachiger Phänomene. Das zweibändige Handbuch richtet sich an alle - Wissenschaftler wie interessierte Laien - , die mit Problemen des synchronen Sprachkontakts zu tun haben. In beiden Halbbänden werden zur besseren Vermittlung der Problematik neben dem wissenschaftlichen Text in größerem Umfang auch Graphiken, Tabellen und Karten verwendet. Dieses Handbuch ist der erste Versuch, weltweit stets wichtiger werdende Themen wie Mehrsprachigkeit, Sprachkontakt und Sprachkonflikt in übersichtlichen und die jüngsten Forschungsergebnisse einschließenden Analysen zu erarbeiten und der Fachwelt vorzulegen.
