This chapter introduces the reader to a number of concepts central to our understanding of linguistic contact. The problematic nature of some of these concepts in relation to near-relative contact – contact between varieties which are at least borderline mutually intelligible – is flagged up as a central issue of the book.

Keywords:   Contact Linguistics, Historical Linguistics, Sociolinguistics
