Abstract

This paper emphasizes language contact situations in general as an origin of hybrid features of writtenness. Furthermore it stresses the necessity of taking into account the medial-conceptional differences between languages of distance (prototypically written) and languages of proximity (prototypically spoken) when analyzing language contact data and language change. Two forms of contact are distinguished here: contact affecting language as a whole and contact affecting written discourse. As is shown by the example of Faroese-Danish bilingualism on the Faroe Islands, these forms may interact and interfere with each other, producing varied results.
