Abstract:

Spanish/English codeswitching in published work represents a claim to
the right to participate in the marketplace on a bilingual and not
just monolingual basis. This book offers a syntactic and
sociolinguistic analysis of the codeswitching in a corpus of thirty
texts: novels and short stories published in the United States by
twenty-four authors between 1970-2000. An application of the Matrix
Language Frame model shows that written codeswitching follows for the
most part the same syntactic patterns as its spoken counterpart. The
reasons why some written codeswitching is considered to be artificial
or inauthentic are examined. An overview of written codeswitching
research is given, including titles of many texts in addition to the
corpus that contain codeswitching between diverse languages. The book
concludes with a look at how codeswitching is used by writers to
attain their objectives, and what the implications may be for the
relative positions of Spanish, English, and Spanish/English
codeswitching in the United States.
