In Communist times, it was impossible to do sociolinguistic work on Hungarian in contact with other languages. In the short period of time since the collapse of the Soviet bloc, Hungarian sociolinguists have certainly done their very best to catch up. This volume brings together the fruits of their work, some of which was hitherto only available in Hungarian. The reader will find a wealth of information on many bilingual communities involving Hungarian as a minority language. The communities covered in the book are located in countries neighboring Hungary (Austria, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Romania and Ukraine) as well as overseas (in Australia and the United States). Several of the chapters discuss material derived from the Sociolinguistics of Hungarian Outside Hungary project. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on how the language use of Hungarian minority speakers has been influenced by the majority or contact language, both on a sociolinguistic macro-level as well as on the micro-level. In the search for explanations, particular attention is given to typological aspects of language change under the conditions of language contact.

Table of Contents
“Hungarian Language Contact Outside Hungary, edited by Anna Fenyvesi presents readers with an impressive array of comparable language contact data with a single focus - Hungarian in contact with multiple languages - in the context of Hungarian as a minority language. The primary strength of this volume rests in the wealth of comparable linguistic as wel as social and demographic data across a range of contact situations.”
“By giving a great deal of information and previously unpublished data on the linguistic situation and social and linguistic characteristic of the language use of minority Hungarian speakers, it provides an insightful overview of the general processes and principles that are at work in cases of Hungarian language contact.”
