preface for the AAA-edition Language Contact and Bilingualism was originally published in 1987 at Edward Arnold. This is an unchanged reprint. Since 1985, the field has undergone a tremendous development, leading to a host of new surveys and a few specialized journals, such as International Journal of Bilingualism, Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, and Bilingualism: Language and Cognition. We refer those interested in later writings on this topic to the comprehensive textbook by Donald Winford, An introduction to contact linguistics (Oxford, Blackwell, 2003). Some of the more fundamental theoretical studies that have appeared since the original publication of our book are: • Sarah Grey Thomason and Terrence Kaufman, Language contact, creolization, and genetic linguistics. Berkeley, Cal.: University of California Press, 1988. • Janet L. Nicol, One mind, two languages. Blackwell, Malden, Mass. & Oxford, 2001. • Michael Clyne, Dynamics of language contact. English and immigrant languages. Cambridge approaches to language contact. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press 2003. • Carol Myers-Scotton, Contact linguistics. Bilingual encounters and grammatical outcomes. Oxford: Oxford University Press 2002. Pieter Muysken and René Appel Amsterdam and Nijmegen, September 2005
