Codeswitching for Humour and Ethnic Identity: Written Danish-American Occasional Songs.
Stolen, Marianne
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v13 n1-2 p215-28 1992
Individual bilingual language performance in occasional songs is examined with focus on the use of Danish and English by a female member of a Danish-American organization in both song-writing and organizational written recordkeeping. The findings confirm the hypothesis of a conditioning effect of features of genre and social role on the exploitation of two codes in writing. (20 references) (Author/LB)
