Dear clan users,

In a bilingual corpus, is there a way to search for pairs of sentences 
where a language switch has occurred? A search for the tagged language will 
only reveal switches from the minor to the major language, but we'd like to 
extract both:

*FAC:    ʔaqaixana . 
*FAC:    ten qaica naxa qaicaʔ . 
*FAC:    [- spa] vamos afuera . <---- LANGUAGE SWITCH FROM THE PREVIOUS 
SENTENCE TO THIS SENTENCE (major to minor -- can be found searching for [- 
spa])
*FAC:    ñaq qaica ten  paʔatauec na . <---- LANGUAGE SWITCH FROM THE 
PREVIOUS SENTENCE TO THIS SENTENCE (minor to major -- can it be found?)
*FAC:    ñaq qaica ten . 



Thank you in advance,

Gladys Ojea and Alex Cristia
