Meeting Description: Most research on code-switching/code-mixing has focused on early bilinguals, implicitly assumed to have enough competence in each language. Child and adult code-switching/code-mixing have not been extensively compared and we are only beginning to gain insight from the code-switching/code-mixing patterns and preferences that differentiate child and adult native speakers, simultaneous bilingual speakers, and second language speakers. The workshop seeks to shed new light on the longstanding issues that language acquisition raises regarding the mechanisms underlying code-switching / code-mixing.
