« The volume is as much a tribute to language contact studies as to Glenn G. Gilbert and his valuable contributions to the field. As it ranges from, among other things, the voyages of the term 'criollo' to processes of transfer in second language acquisition and creole formation, from the roots of African American Vernacular English to the resilience of Low German networks on the Great Plains, and from possessive constructions in Afrikaans to a sociolinguistic typology of language shift in Australia, everybody concerned with multilingualism and language contact is bound to find something of interest. Accessibly written by experts and reflecting current views and debates, this collection will appeal to both specialists and novices in the field. -- Adrienne Bruyn
