The Architecture of the Bilingual Language Faculty: Evidence from Intrasentential Code Switching.
MacSwan, Jeff
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v3 n1 p37-54 Apr 2000
Addresses the question of how the mind represents two languages in simultaneous bilingualism. Reviews theories of intrasentential code switching, focusing on the minimalist approach. Concludes that evidence from code switching suggests that bilinguals have discrete and separate lexicons for the languages they speak, each with its own principles of word formation, as well as separate phonological systems.
