This volume has been designed to capture the latest views in the field
of codeswitching research. A state-of-the-art document, CODESWITCHING
WORLDWIDE aims at stressing the notion that the alternation of codes
in bilingual discourse is more than a random phenomenon occurring now
in one language and then in the other. The contributions focus, among
others, on the relationship between codeswitching and language shift,
the notion of language alternation as opposed to intrasentential
codeswitching, the question of universal validity of constraints
potentially blocking the speaker's switching processes, the nature of
the proposed Matrix Language Frame Model with special emphasis on the
complement phrase CP, the stand-alone principle as well as the
codeswitching/borrowing dimension.
The core of the studies included in this volume is based on papers
that were presented at the XIII World Congress of Sociology, held in
1994 at the University of Bielefeld, Germany.
