The communities covered in the book are located in countries neighboring Hungary (Austria, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Romania and Ukraine) as well as overseas (in Australia and the United States).

In the search for explanations, particular attention is given to typological aspects of language change under the conditions of language contact.
