Varietal Conditioning in Japanese/English Code-Switching.
Nishimura, Miwa
Language Sciences, v17 n2 p123-45 Apr 1995
Demonstrates that the patterns of Japanese/English code-switching found in Canadian Niseis' in-group speech are conditioned by the varieties of bilingual speech characterized in terms of base language. When Japanese is the base, English nouns are used; when English is the base, Japanese phrases and sentences occur sporadically. (38 references) (Author)
