Primary Instructor:

This seminar explores phonetic, phonological and morpho-syntactic contact-induced change (in addition to the external factors that condition them) across a variety of contact situations. We explore contact effects in the formation of pidgins, creoles, and between two languages in bilinguals and second language acquisition. We examine both outcomes of language contact and the mechanisms and processes involved. These will include but not limited to code-switching, transfer, convergence and metatypy. We explore both descriptive and formal approaches to the study of language contact, in addition to a range of methodologies including agent-based models and psycholinguistic experimentation
