This volume focuses on the ways in which language change, language variation and language contact transform some of the major Germanic languages, as well as the ways in which the relationship between standard and varieties is (re-) conceptualised. How do processes of language contact affect the Germanic languages today? What impact does language contact have on their standard forms? What new varieties
of language are emerging in the process? How do linguistic plurality and difference recur as themes in public discourse and language policy on the one hand, and in narratives and everyday conversations of various social groups on the other? What kind of linguistic ideologies emerge, and how are they shaped by the media? How do these processes affect political decision making and linguistic codification?
