Spanish in Contact is organized into three sections, examining contact situations in Spain, Latin America, and the United States. The authors look at regions where Spanish is the dominant language as well as regions where it is the minority language, and discuss changes in the lexicon, phonology and syntax of the affected languages. Code-switching and issues in language planning are also addressed.
You can read the introduction on-line. We have also posted an excerpt from a review which appeared in Language Problems and Language Planning 22(1).
