Due to migrations in past centuries, there are some 80 villages in and around the Austrian-Hungarian border region where Croatian immigrant dialects are spoken. These dialects are of linguistic interest in that they have often been separated from their original surroundings very long ago and can therefore contribute to the reconstruction of the premigratory Serbo-Croatian dialect picture. Moreover, they show the results of all kinds of contacts with other dialects and languages. This book offers a synchronic description of the only dialect in this area that belongs to the Kajkavian group of Serbo-Croatian. Hidegség and Fertõhomok are located near Sopron in the northwest of Hungary. The description is based on field-work by the author and concentrates on phonology, morphology and vocabulary. The Croatian dialect of Hidegség and Fertõhomok is on the verge of extinction and this has clear effects on the dialect itself. Therefore, apart from its relevance for Serbo-Croatian dialectology and the study of language contacts, the book contains useful material for the study of dialect death.

Language contact phenomena have been researched throughout the history of the discipline, but the intensity of the research has undoubtedly risen during the last decades due to growing globalization. This peer-reviewed volume presents twelve papers from the Second Conference on Language Contact in Times of Globalization (University of Groningen, June 2009) which deal with a wide range of topics, languages and contact situations. Five of them involve a Finno-Ugric language (Saami-Komi-Russian; Finnic-Baltic; Mordvin-Turkic; Estonian-German; Saami general), two a Slavic language (Slavic-Romance; Slavic general), two Germanic-Romance contact and three situations outside Europe (The Arabic World; Central Asia; South America). Methods range from field research and corpus analysis to historical linguistics, and both synchronic and diachronic approaches are used. The authors are Rogier Blokland and Michael Rießler, Martine Bruil, Louise-Amélie Cougnon, Anissa Daoudi, Santeri Junttila, Janneke Kalsbeek, Folke Müller and Susan Schlotthauer, Johanna Nichols, Pekka Sammallahti, Peter Schrijver, Remco van Pareren, and Willem Vermeer.

Studies in Slavic and General Linguistics is mainly devoted to the field of descriptive linguistics. Although the series is primarily intended to be a means of publication for linguists from the Low Countries, the editors are pleased to accept contributions by linguists from abroad.
Studies in Slavic and General Linguistics appears at irregular intervals, but the Editors aim at bringing out an average one volume a year.
