Abstract:

This book offers a study of long-term, intensive language contact between more
than a dozen Mayan languages spoken in the lowlands of Guatemala, Southern
Mexico and Belize. It details the massive restructuring of syntactic and
semantic organization, the calquing of grammatical patterns, and the direct
borrowing of inflectional morphology, including, in some of these languages,
the direct borrowing of even entire morphological paradigms. The in-depth
analysis of contact among the genetically related Lowland Mayan languages
presented in this volume serves as a highly relevant case for theoretical,
historical, contact, typological, socio- and anthropological linguistics. This
linguistically complex situation involves serious engagement with issues of
methods for distinguishing contact-induced similarity from inherited
similarity, the role of social and ideological variables in conditioning the
outcomes of language contact, cross-linguistic tendencies in language contact,
as well as the effect that inherited similarity can have on the processes and
outcomes of language contact.
