10plus1’s second issue focuses on Contact Linguistics. Research within this field is highly diverse as it encompasses a whole range of phenomena related to language contact and investigates them from different theoretical and methodological angles. Topics include changes in one or more of the languages involved in a contact situation, for example through borrowing (e.g., Thomason/Everett 2005), language creation (e.g., Schröder/Rudd fc.), or language death (e.g., Romaine 2013), but also individual and societal bi-/multilingualism and the structural and sociolinguistic implications of these phenomena (e.g., Fuller 2012). Research may be diachronic (e.g., Schulte fc.) or synchronic (e.g., Migge 2015), deal with individual languages or multiple languages (Schneider 2003), and can consider living, endangered, or extinct languages.

Issue #2 welcomes contributions of all formats (see page 1) situated within the broad frame of Contact Linguistics. Papers may deal with specific aspects, or give an overview of a broader field of research. We also invite contributions focusing on theoretical and/or methodological issues.

Marion Schulte is Akademische Rätin at Bielefeld University. She studied English and Music at the universities of Siegen and Maynooth before joining Bielefeld University, where she received her doctorate for a thesis on the semantics of derivational morphology.
