Genesis and Evolution of the Romance-Germanic Language Border in Europe.
van Durme, Luc
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v23 n1-2 p9-21 2002
Discusses various language border theories for the Belgian-Northern French area, and summarizes the results of 40 years of research into the development of the Romance-Germanic language border at large. Suggests that a late Roman Latin-Germanic opposition has functioned as a direct predisposition for the early medieval Romance-Germanic language border. Microtoponymy is considered a promising approach for future investigation. (Author/VWL)
