Sociolinguistic factors in code-switching
Gardner-Chloros, Penelope (2009) Sociolinguistic factors in code-switching. In: Bullock, B.E. and Toribio, A.J. (eds.) The Handbook of Code-switching. Cambridge Handbooks in Language and Linguistics. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, pp. 97-113. ISBN 9780521875912.
Book synopsis: 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 practices.
