Title: Code-Switching in Conversation
Edited By: Peter Auer

Collecting contributions from a wide variety of international sociolinguistic settings in which this phenomenon of code-switching is observed, this volume addresses the structure, function and ideological value of such bilingual behavior. The contributors question many views of code-switching on the basis of many European and non-European contexts. By bringing together linguistic, anthropological and socio-psychological research, they move towards a more realistic conception of bilingual conversation.
