The contributions in this volume present cutting-edge theoretical and structural analyses of issues surrounding German-language islands, or Sprachinseln, throughout the world. The individual topics of study in this volume focus on various aspects of these German-language islands such as (but not limited to) phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic aspects of these languages under investigation. Collectively, the body of research contained in this volume explores significantly under-researched topics in the fields of language contact and language attrition and illustrates how this on-going research can be enhanced through the application of formal theoretical frameworks and structural analyses.

Table of Contents
“I do not know any area where descriptive work has as long or as consistently remained separate from theoretical work as in the study of colonial German varieties. In recent years, individual studies have begun to bridge that gap, but this volume is the first to achieve that fully, across wide-ranging theoretical frameworks, colonial varieties and subfields of linguistics.”
