CFP for the Winter 2018 issue of the ESSE Messenger

Theme: Language Contact Phenomena

The multilingual context we live in leads to constant interaction between languages. As a result, there are various language contact phenomena that have become common practice among speakers and that are constantly shaping the individual’s language use and identity. This issue of the ESSE Messenger invites scholars to send their articles on topics related to micro-sociolinguistics (borrowing, code-switching, translanguaging, polylingual languaging, metrolingualism, translingual practices), macro-sociolinguistics (language shift, language maintenance), and how these phenomena influence the speakers’ linguistic practices and identity.

Deadline: 1 October 2018
