Online course on Bilingualism and Language Contact in the Spanish-speaking world programmed by the Cervantes Institute of New York.
The course will engage with various linguistic concepts and sociolinguistic perspectives in order for students to understand the effects of direct contact between speakers of Spanish and other languages in a variety of historical and contemporary contexts, such as: colonization, slavery, migration, media, social networks, education systems, language policy, etc. The outcomes of all these contacts are varied and include pidgin and creole formation, hybrid sociolects, language choice, language erosion, code-switching and linguistic borrowings, among others.
