Bokamba, Eyamba G.
World Englishes, v8 n3 p277-92 Win 1989
Provides a critical review of the syntactic study of code mixing, discussing data drawn from African and South Asian languages, and focuses particular attention on the syntactic constraints paradigm. An examination of seven major surface constraints, deemed to have universal applicability, shows that none of these constraints is universal. (53 references) (Author/OD)
