A century long history of Italian emigration all over the world has offered ample material for studying language contact. As the history unfolds linguistically, this article surveys the main works that analyse it. The survey is comprehensive in so far as it critically discusses the development of the field taking into account all major theoretical paradigms and methodological tools devised and used to assess language loss and language shift, and their accompanying changes in attitudes and expressions of identity. The survey must be also concise; yet an informed selection guarantees at least a mention of all major works and players in this field of research.
