Subject: J. B. Pride/reference question

I have a book chapter which I'd like to refer to in my dissertation, but I
don't know where it came from.
Does anyone know which book includes a chapter called "A Transactional View
of Speech Functions
and Codeswitching" by J. B Pride? Because Pride's name is on the first page
of this article/chapter,
I am almost certain that this is NOT a book authored by Pride, but rather an
edited book with
chapters from various people.

If you know where the chapter/article comes from, or even think you know,
please let me know!

when they name the divine. (The survey is part of a project for a class
at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA, USA.) The survey is at Your participation in the survey and
further dissemination of the web address would be appreciated.
