================================================================

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Does anyone know what the limits of community multi-lingualism are? I've
heard anecdotally of a town in India where everybody is said to be able to
code-switch among five languages. Can anyone confirm that this number is
indeed possible, or even offer a higher figure?

Is there anybody who has any idea for Grice's maxims? How can I make use of
Grice's maxim in reading clases for elementary level?

What kind of activity can you suggest me?

I am preparing a master research on this. I will be glad if anybody helps
me with finding resources.
