Abstract:

The studies in "Language Change in Contact Languages" showcase the 
contributions that the study of contact language varieties make to the 
understanding of phenomena such as relexification, transfer, reanalysis, 
grammaticalization, prosodic variation and the development of prosodic 
systems. Four of the studies deal with morphosyntactic issues while the other 
three address questions of prosody. The studies include data from the Atlantic 
creoles (Saramaccan, Sranan, Haitian Creole, Jamaican Creole, Trinidadian 
Creole, Papiamentu), as well as Singapore English. This volume, originally 
pulished as special issue of "Studies in Language" 33:2 (2009), aims to 
make the work of several language contact experts available to a wider 
audience. The studies will be of use to any student or scholar interested in 
different approaches to contact-induced language processes, particularly as 
they relate to morphosyntax and prosody.
