One Speaker, Two Languages. Cross-Disciplinary Perspectives on Code-Switching.
Milroy, Lesley, Ed.; Muysken, Pieter, Ed.
Fifteen articles review code-switching in the four major areas: policy implications in specific institutional and community settings; perspectives of social theory of code-switching as a form of speech behavior in particular social contexts; the grammatical analysis of code-switching, including factors that constrain switching even within a sentence; and the implications of code-switching in bilingual processing and development.
