Description

As a crossroads of cultures, the Iberian Peninsula provides a fertile field for the study of contact and interaction among peoples, their cultures and languages. This session seeks to examine linguistic contacts in any region of Iberia during the Middle Ages. It includes contact between Romance languages (e.g. Castilian, Aragonese, Mozarabic) as well as contacts among any other languages of Iberia (e.g. Arabic, Hebrew, Germanic). Both synchronic and diachronic approaches to language contact are welcome. Emphasis may be on the written word and its literary manifestations, as well as on specific linguistic features (i.e. sound system, morphology, syntax, and lexicon). Any projection of the medieval languages of the Iberian Peninsula onto the overseas colonies during the sixteenth century is also welcome. Equally acceptable is the reception or reinterpretation of medieval Iberian languages (e.g. Astur-Leonese, Navarro-Aragonese, Judeo-Spanish) in the modern era.
