Glossa Contact is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal devoted to furthering the understanding of the sources, processes, and effects of language contact, symbiosis, and change in multilingual settings. Articles in Glossa Contact must combine theoretical and empirical perspectives to illuminate synchronic, diachronic, oral, written or signed dimensions of language contact. Submissions may adopt a variety of methodologies – including historical, typological, anthropological, sociolinguistic, philological, experimental, and computational methods – in order to shed light on both the language faculty and language as a social system. Submissions from all subfields and theoretical perspectives are appropriate. The journal particularly welcomes contributions that attempt to cross disciplinary divides, and that present their findings in a way that is accessible to the wide and diverse community of language-contact scholars.
