Acceptability Judgements of Code-Switching Phrases by Chicanos: Some Preliminary Findings.
Aguirre, Adalberto, Jr.
A brief report of some preliminary findings obtained from a sociolinguistics census of Chicano college students attending a university in Southwest Texas is presented. Findings reported deal with: (1) general patterns of language usage as reported by students, and (2) the students' evaluative responses to code-switching phrases controlled for syntactical constraints. In general, findings appear to support the notion that syntactic constraints do operate on code-switching; thus suggesting the existence of a code-switching grammar. (Author)
