Hungarian Verbal Puzzles and the Intensity of Language Contact.
Kontra, Miklos
Journal of Sociolinguistics, v5 n2 p163-71 May 2001
Provides empirical support for two components of Thomason and Kaufman's intensity of language contact: the length of contact and the role of exposure to the source language. Tests the hypothesis that several hundred years of intimate contact and widespread bilingualism among borrowing-language speakers are needed for extensive structural changes to occur by analyzing data fro, a study of Hungarian in contact with Slovak, Ukrainian, and Russian.
