Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: The Cambridge Handbook of Linguistic Code-switching
Edited By: Barbara E. Bullock
Almeida Jacqueline Toribio

Code-switching - the alternating use of two languages in the same stretch
of discourse by a bilingual speaker - is a dominant topic in the study of
bilingualism and a phenomenon that generates a great deal of pointed
discussion in the public domain. This handbook provides the most
comprehensive guide to this bilingual phenomenon to date. Drawing on
empirical data from a wide-range of language pairings, the leading
researchers in the study of bilingualism examine the linguistic, social and
cognitive implications of code-switching in up-to-date and accessible
survey chapters.

The Cambridge Handbook of Linguistic Code-Switching will serve as a vital
resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as a
wide-ranging overview for linguists, psychologists and speech scientists,
and as an informative guide for educators interested in bilingual speech


'… reads like an international who's who of the field. It covers all
important dimensions of code-switching, all the main theoretical
frameworks, and representatives of all the major 'schools'.' Micha

'This outstanding volume brings together surveys of the major theoretical
and methodological approaches to code-switching by leading scholars of
sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics. … will
immediately become an essential resource and stimulus for further work by
students and established scholars alike.' Carol W. Pfaff, Freie Universität
