Abstract:

"Code-switching," or the alternation of languages by bilinguals, has attractedan enormous amount of attention from researchers. However, most researchhas focused on spoken language, and the resultant theoretical frameworkshave been based on spoken code-switching. This volume presents acollection of new work on the alternation of languages in written form.

Written language alternation has existed since ancient times. It is presenttoday in a great deal of traditional media, and also exists in newer, lessregulated forms such as email, SMS messages, and blogs. Chapters in thisvolume cover both historical and contemporary language-mixing practices ina large range of language pairs and multilingual communities.

The research collected here explores diverse approaches, including corpuslinguistics, Critical Discourse Analysis, literacy studies, ethnography, andanalyses of the visual/textual aspects of written data. Each chapter, basedon empirical research of multilingual writing, presents methodologicalapproaches as models for other researchers. New perspectives developed inthis book include: analysis specific to written, rather than spoken, discourse;approaches from the new literacy studies, treating mixed-language literacyfrom a practice perspective; a focus on both "traditional" and "new" mediatypes; and the semiotics of both text and the visual environment.
