      introduction:

      i am a computationally oriented linguist, working on - among other things -
      multi-lingual text retrieval. i have a personal interest in code-switching:
      my two sons are being raised bilingual in finnish-swedish, and their mutual
      conversations provide hours of entertainment for a linguist. well -
      minutes, really, since they are quite mobile. they are quite careful about
      keeping each conversation monolingual, but at times they uphold two
      interleaved conversations simultaneously in separate languages. and i am
      trying to listen in to figure out what determines language choice.

      constructive proposal:

      i have a proposal to make for this group: could someone collect the
      literature references, and set up a bibliography for the interested reader?
      such a collection will be all the more valuable if it is subjectively
      commented by several active researchers in the field.
