"Token Codeswitching" and Language Alternation in Narrative Discourse: A Functional-Pragmatic Approach.
Reershemius, Gertrud
International Journal of Bilingualism, v5 n2 p175-94 Jun 2001
Examines two phenomena of language alternation in biographic narrations in Yiddish and Low German, based on spoken language data recorded between 1988-1995. The first is a narrative strategy referred to as token codeswitching; the second has to do with directing procedures, carried out by the speaker and aimed at guiding and supporting the hearer's attention at crucial points in the interaction.
