Summary of "Borrowing and Shift-Induced Interference: Contrasting Patterns in French-Germanic Contact."
Treffers-Daller, Jeanine
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v2 n2 p77-79 Aug 1999
Summarizes a keynote address that tested hypotheses from the model for contact-induced language change as formulated in Thomason and Kaufman (1998) and Thomason (1998). The model correctly predicts the asymmetries between the mutual influences of the Germanic and Romance varieties in Brussels, Belgium and Strasbourg, France, making it a very powerful tool for describing the language contact patterns in these cities.
