The Cambridge Handbook of Linguistic Code-switching, Paperback / softback Book

The Cambridge Handbook of Linguistic Code-switching Paperback / softback

Edited by Barbara E. Bullock, Almeida Jacqueline Toribio

Part of the Cambridge Handbooks in Language and Linguistics series

Description

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.
