Codeswitching as a Worldwide Phenomenon


Rodolfo Jacobson

The present volume is a unique collection of writings by international scholars revealing their individual approaches to the conceptualization of the intriguing phenomenon of the switching of codes when some speakers interact with one another. This state-of-the-art anthology addresses the multiple means by which linguists and other social scientists conduct codeswitching research and try, each one in his/her own way, to capture a degree of universality regardless of the languages involved.
