Talen geven en nemen: nieuwe denkkaders, contexten en methodes in de studie van lexicale ontlening

Book Contribution - Chapter

In this introductory paper we discuss the expanding focus of lexical borrowing research over the past decade. Where this inevitable outcome of language contact was originally predominantly addressed from a historical linguistic and lexicographic perspective, a broader range of linguistic traditions have recently been applied to the topic, each introducing their own questions, perspectives and methods. Below, we first present the main insights ensuing from a century of loanword research. Then, we introduce the viewpoints that characterize more recent work and the questions they foreground. In presenting the contributions to this special issue, we finally pay specific attention to the way the six papers add to the broader tendencies and innovations of current lexical borrowing research.
