Lu, Jung-Ying
World Englishes, v10 n2 p139-51 Sum 1991
Code-switching (CS) patterns of bilingual English-Mandarin speakers underwent structural and functional analysis to reveal the interrelationship between form and function in bilingual CS discourse. Results indicate that certain syntactic forms are utilized to express certain functions in CS discourse and that interlocutor participation helps establish the base language for discourse.
