Language Contact: Peaceful Coexistence or Emergence of a Contact Language

Abstract : This paper presents a simple model of linguistic priming between languages in contact , based on the utterance selection model (USM) for language change of Baxter et al. (2006). It will be shown that the emergence or the non-emergence of a new contact language depends on the way potentially bilingual agents choose a language to communicate .
