In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject: Community Multi-lingualism
Does anyone know what the limits of community multi-lingualism are? I've
heard anecdotally of a town in India where everybody is said to be able to
code-switch among five languages. Can anyone confirm that this number is
indeed possible, or even offer a higher figure?
