- Hi everybody,
I've been in transit for the last couple of months and only just
read the messages exchanged on the list since mid-August. Just a
comment on two points, I believe made by Celso:
"I think two (unsolved) issues intersect here: (1) the
relationships between (the notions of) 'code', 'grammar'
and 'language varieties'; ........
I don't think code-switching research has produced enough
understanding of these questions yet. I personally
would like to put these things together."
check chapters 9 and 10 at
and in relation to that
"Yes, of course, that is one of the reasons why the forum was
created -- so that discussion could arise and questions could
be asked and answered. Unfortunately, though, too often most people
are too busy to carry on lengthy debates, or too shy to
you forgot to mention 'politics'...
Cheers and nice to be back
- Hi! I'm a research scholar in Osmania University, Hyderabad, India.
I'm working on the code-switching of English and Meiteilon, a Tibeto-
Burman language of the Meiteis spoken in parts of the North-Eastern
states of India, mainly Manipur. However my focus is on code-switching
by the Meitei population, mostly the student community, in Delhi. For
this, I'm taking into account Myers-Scotten's Matrix Language
Model.It's really nice to have come across this group and the
exchanges which take place. I hope to contribute my ideas as well as
benifit from those of yours.
