This volume contains revised and, in some cases, extended versions of twelve of the fourteen lectures read at the conference on “Early Germanic Languages in Contact” held at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense on 22-23 August 2013 – with a paper and a review article added at the end on themes pertaining to the aim and scope of the symposium. All papers cover central aspects of the early contact between Germanic and some of its Indo-European and non-Indo-European linguistic neighbours; and, in certain cases, aspects involving internal Germanic language contact.

Review Article
Reviewed by Simon Mulder
“[I]n all cases, scholars are able to make compelling arguments based on thorough analysis of what is often times scarce or incomplete evidence. The area of debate is in the details, which is fought over fiercely – and rightfully so. The contributions in this volume are largely prolegomena on contested or unresolved issues in Germanic historical linguistics, and each chapter is worthy of its place in the collection. The volume as a whole suggests a continuing and lively discourse in the field, and productive disagreement on a number of questions central to the history of Germanic.”
