A specter is haunting Europe: the Alps as a linguistic area?


Gaeta, Livio; Seiler, Guido (2021). A specter is haunting Europe: the Alps as a linguistic area? Language typology and universals, 74(1):1-16.

Abstract

As is well-known, the Alps are a zone of long-standing, intensive contact and multilingualism among Germanic, Romance and Slavic languages and varieties. In this introductory paper, some reflections are presented on the viability of the Sprachbund hypothesis to encompass the occurring phenomena of convergence observed throughout the whole area.
