In this seminar course we will explore issues related to languages in contact from linguistic and social perspectives. We will investigate questions such as: What are some of the linguistic consequences of languages in contact? What are some of the ways people manage their linguistic repertoires? Under what circumstances does language contact lead to language change? In exploring these questions we will examine topics including code-switching, linguistic areas, issues in the development of pidgin, creole and bilingual mixed languages, distinguishing contact-induced change from internal language change, and issues in language maintenance, shift and attrition.
