Multilingual Practices in Language History : New Perspectives (Hardcover)
about this item
Texts of the past were often produced by and for people with multilingual repertoires and thus reflect ongoing and earlier language contact situations – an insight that is increasingly important for understanding language history. This volume explores multilingual practices in familiar and neglected genres, periods and areas, discusses relevant concepts and theories, and introduces new methods of analyzing multilingualism in historical materials.
