El español en contacto con otras lenguas is the first
comprehensive historical, social, and linguistic overview of
Spanish in contact with other languages in all of its major
contexts-in Spain, the United States, and Latin America. In this
significant contribution to the field of Hispanic linguistics,
Carol A. Klee and Andrew Lynch explore the historical and social
factors that have shaped contact varieties of the Spanish language,
synthesizing the principle arguments and theories about language
contact, and examining linguistic changes in Spanish phonology,
morphology and syntax, and pragmatics.
Individual chapters analyze particular contact situations: in
Spain, contact with Basque, Catalan, Valencian, and Galician; in
Mexico, Central, and South America, contact with Nahuatl, Maya,
Quechua, Aimara, and Guarani; in the Southern Cone, contact with
other principle European languages such as Portuguese, Italian,
English, German, and Danish; in the United States, contact with
English. A separate chapter explores issues of creolization in the
Philippines and the Americas and highlights the historical
influence of African languages on Spanish, primarily in the
Caribbean and Equatorial Guinea.
Written in Spanish, this detailed synthesis of wide-ranging
research will be a valuable resource for scholars of Hispanic
linguistics, language contact, and sociolinguistics.
