Code Switching Topic: CLAN commands

Dear all, 

I have some questions on the use of COMBO commands to analyse code 
switching topics in utterances.

Firstly, I want to do a count of specific tier combinations (the same tier; 
different codes), in a specific sequence across clusters using the COMBO 
command.

 

e.g.:

**TE1:*  utterance

%xcod: 1.3

%xtsf: 4.8

**CH3:* utterance

%xcod: 2.5

%xcsf: 5.4

è  I want to be able to specify the command to count the instances where 
%xcod:  1.3 is followed by another code on the same tier %xcod:  2.5 but 
across different clusters.

è To use the command to count the instances of different sequences (for 
example 1.1à2.5/ 2.6/ 2.7)

 

Secondly, I want to do a count of specific tier combinations (different 
tiers; different codes), in a specific sequence within clusters using the 
COMBO command

 

e.g.:

**CH3*: utterance

%xcod: 1.7

%xcsf: 5.4

**TE1*:  utterance

%xcod: 1.2

%xtsf: 4.2

**CLS:*  utterance

%xcod: 1.6

è  I want to be able to specify the command to count the instances where 
%xcod:  1.2 is followed by another code on a different tier %xtsf:  4.2 
within the same clusters.

è To use the command to count the instances of different sequences (for 
example 1.1à4.1/4.2/4.3/4.4/4.5/4.6/4.7/4.8)

 

 

Note:

As shown above some utterances have two tiers of codes. All utterances have 
the %xcod tier while some utterances by the speaker **TE1* have the tier 
%xtsf, and some utterances by the speaker **CH#/CLS* have the %xcsf tier.

However, other utterances may not have two tiers, and only have the %xcod 
tier.

e.g.:

 

**TE1:*  utterance

%xcod: 1.2

**CH4:* utterance

%xcod: 2.6

**TE1:*  utterance

%xcod: 3.2

**TE1:*  utterance

%xcod: 3.3

%xtsf:  4.8

 

I have tried using the following COMBO commands but they do not seem to 
produce results in the CLAN window. Could you provide some suggestions?


Thank you so much.
