The Nuts and Bolts of Language Contact.
Treffers-Daller, Jeanine
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v2 n2 p98-101 Aug 1999
Responds to peer commentaries written in response to a paper examining the model for contact-induced language change as formulated in Thomason and Kaufman (1998) and Thomason (1998). The model correctly predicts asymmetries between mutual influences of Germanic and Romance varieties in Brussels, Belgium and Strasbourg, France, making it a very powerful tool for describing language contact patterns in these cities.
