The present volume provides an overview of current trends in the study of language contact involving Arabic. By drawing on the social factors that have converged to create different contact situations, it explores both contact-induced change in Arabic and language change through contact with Arabic. The volume brings together leading scholars who address a variety of topics related to contact-induced change, the emergence of contact languages, codeswitching, as well as language ideologies in contact situations. It offers insights from different theoretical approaches in connection with research fields such as descriptive and historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, ethnolinguistics, and language acquisition. It provides the general linguistic public with an updated, cutting edge overview and appreciation of themes and problems in Arabic linguistics and sociolinguists alike.

“[L]inguistics in general can benefit from increased attention to Arabic and Arabic-related cases. Not only in the realms of pidgin and creole linguistics, [...], but also in studies of historical contact and theories of transmission or transfer. Indeed, this volume offers fascinating case studies related to Arabic to all of these fields, and it goes a significant way toward highlighting the importance of Arabic, understood as a complex collection of language varieties in highly varied sociolinguistic situations, for not only contact linguistics, but linguistics in general.”
