Editor for this issue: Jessica Boynton <jessicalinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. 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. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Subject: Linguistic Maps

I am searching for a world map (as comprehensive as possible) wherein each
area/country/region is labeled with the mother tongue.

Any ideas of where to search for such a map? I haven't had any luck by
browsing the web.

Subject: AAVE-Standard English Code-Switching

Dear Linguists,

I am beginning research on the acquisition of code-switching by young
speakers of AAVE learning standard English in school and other
environments. However, finding the most recent relevant literature has
proven difficult. Any advice on good articles or general code-switching
research methods would be much appreciated.
