Code-Switching and Universal Constraints: Evidence from Farsi/English.
Mahootian, Shahrzad
World Englishes, v15 n3 p377-84 Nov 1996
Presents an analysis of code switching that relies on general principles of phrase structure and rejects constraints specific to code switching. This model is shown to account for intersentential switches between typologically different languages such as Farsi and English, including within word switches and switches between modifiers and nouns.
