A Developmental Perspective on Codeswitching: Conversations between a Pair of Bilingual Siblings.
Vihman, Marilyn May
International Journal of Bilingualism, v2 n1 p45-84 Mar 1998
Addresses the question of social motivation for codeswitching (CS) as well as the more narrowly linguistic question of structural constraints, based on six recordings of conversations between a pair of bilingual siblings over a period of four years. Unmarked CS, emblematic of the children's dual identity as members of an Estonian family and an English-speaking community, is found to characterize their interactions. (Author/VWL)
