The role of an additional language, either a foreign language, a second language, or an indiginized variety, is nowadays crucial not only in the professional domain but also in the area of scientific investigation, more precisely regarding the language contact. Till the beginning of the second half of the last century, linguists concentrated the investigation on the language contact on the creole languages. In the last decades, their attention was drawn to the second language and the indiginized varieties. In this paper, we present from the theoretical point of view the bonds, contexts and continua, that connect the four above mentioned concepts, the first of which, additional language, is a hyperonym of the other three, foreign language, second language and indiginized variety.
