Subtitle: A sociolinguistic study
Written By: Chamindi Dilkushi Senaratne

Series Title: LOT Dissertation Series
Description:

This thesis contributes to one of the most criticized, devalued and yet highly
frequent linguistic phenomena in post-colonial urban Sri Lanka: Sinhala-English
CM. In answering the main research question of this thesis, this treatise
seeks to provide an adequate account of mixed constructions prevalent in
the Sinhala-English bilingual corpus within the framework proposed in
Muysken’s (2000) CM typology.
