Summary

Multidirectional language contact involving more than two languages is little described. However, it represents the most common type of contact in the world, where colonization, rapid socioeconomic and demographic change, and society-wide multilingualism have led to dramatic linguistic change. This book presents cases of multidirectional contact and convergence between diverse languages in an emerging linguistic area in Suriname and the Guianas.
