Merchants of Innovation. The Languages of Traders

Following a conference on traders' languages that took place in St John's College, Cambridge in 2014, which sought to place trade languages within a wider sociolinguistic context and examine in depth their effect on standard varieties of a large number of different languages, Dr Esther Miriam Wagner is currently editing a themed volume on the topic, together with Dr Ben Outhwaite and Dr Bettina Beinhoff.
