15 Case Studies in Language Intertwining
Peter Bakker en Maarten Mous (eds.)
(STUDIES OF LANGUAGE AND LANGUAGE USE 13)

This is the first published collection of papers on mixed languages. Mixed
languages are languages with a grammatical system from one language and a
lexicon from another. This excludes pidgins, creoles, and code-switching, as
well as heavy borrowing. All authors have first hand experience with the
language they discuss. The languages cover a time period of almost four
millennia. Over 20 languages are dealt with, from Africa, the Americas,
Asia, Europe and the Middle East: Amarna-Akkadian, Callahuaya, Copper Island
Aleut, Ilwana, Island Carib, Javindo, KiMwani, Ma'a/Mbugu, Maltese, Media
Lengua, Michif, Petjo, eight Romani (Gypsy) mixed dialects, Shelta, and Town
Frisian. The papers go into questions such as: How are the languages mixed
structurally? How did they come into being? What social factors are
responsible for their genesis? This collection is of great interest for
historical linguists, creolists, code-mixing researchers and other language
cont act specialists.
