Code-switching, the use of two or more languages in discourse, is the norm in many bilingual and multilingual communities. This book examines Japanese/English code-switching from a syntactic and a functional perspective, using data obtained from the Niseis, second generation Japanese Canadians in the Toronto Japanese community. Previous researchers have postulated that code-switching could not occur between two languages with different word order, but this book shows that this is not the case. The functions of the Niseis' code-switching in conversation is also explored.Observe (5): (5) (Everyone is watching TV wondering about the man on the screen.) Buddhist monk mitai (He looks ...
