Abstract:

It is quite commonplace for bilingual speakers to use two or more
languages, dialects or varieties in the same conversation, without any
apparent effort. The phenomenon, known as code-switching, has become a
major focus of attention in linguistics. This concise and original study
explores how, when and where code-switching occurs. Drawing on a diverse
range of examples from medieval manuscripts to rap music, novels to
advertisements, emails to political speeches, and above all everyday
conversation, it argues that code-switching can only be properly understood
if we study it from a variety of perspectives. It shows how
sociolinguistic, psycholinguistic, grammatical and developmental aspects of
code-switching are all interdependent, and findings in each area are
crucial to others. Breaking down barriers across the discipline of
linguistics, this pioneering book confronts fundamental questions about
what a 'native language' is, and whether languages can be meaningfully
studied outside of the individuals who use them.
