Code-switching – the alternating use of two languages in the same stretch ofdiscourse by a bilingual speaker – is a dominant topic in the study ofbilingualism and a phenomenon that generates a great deal of pointeddiscussion in the public domain. This handbook provides the most comprehensiveguide to this bilingual phenomenon to date. Drawing on empirical data from awide range of language pairings, the leading researchers in the study ofbilingualism examine the linguistic, social and cognitive implications ofcode-switching in up-to-date and accessible survey chapters. The CambridgeHandbook of Linguistic Code-switching will serve as a vital resource foradvanced undergraduate and graduate students, as a wide-ranging overview forlinguists, psychologists and speech scientists and as an informative guide foreducators interested in bilingual speech practices.
