I'm an Italian student from the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of
Milan. My name is Francesca. I'm working on a thesis in English
Linguistics about service encounters with Latino people in the United
States. In particular I'm looking for materials about service encounters
between American workers and Latino customers in America and the
phenomenon of code-switching between English and Spanish.

I thought I could ask for some advice on how and where to find an
official linguistic corpus about those encounters. Here in Italy it is quite
difficult to find books, articles, or other resources on this subject and
I'm stuck trying to collect background material to work on. If anyone
could please give me any suggestions I would be very grateful.

I look forward to receiving replies!

Best regards,
