Aspects of the syntax, the pragmatics, and the production of code-switching

by Brian Hok-Shing Chan | 09 May 2003
Hardback
Synopsis
For decades, linguists have treated code-switching as a special language of its own, and devised many constraints accounting for code-switching patterns in various language pairs. This book argues that code-switching is governed by the same constraints as those governing native pure languages, and hence code-switching data provide a window to our language faculty. Although some other works have already suggested that code-switching and pure languages are governed by the same syntactic rules, this book goes a step further and explores the possibility that both are constrained by the same system in terms of syntax, production, and pragmatics.
