Contact linguistics is a field of study which investigates various phenomena relating to the encounters between two or more languages or varieties and their speakers both in the past and the present. Its core is in historical linguistics, but it interfaces with several other fields of study, e.g. sociolinguistics, the study of bi- and multilingualism and the study of second language acquisition. In addition, its research topics intersect with psychology, sociology and anthropology, which are also interested in the processes and effects of cross-linguistic and cross-cultural encounters.
