FYI: New List/Code-Switching


Author: Celso Alvarez Caccamo

FYI Body: HELLO,

I WOULD LIKE TO ANNOUNCE THE CREATION OF A NEW MAILING LIST CALLED THE
CODE-SWITCHING FORUM. I DECIDED TO START THE LIST AFTER RECEIVING A
NUMBER OF MESSAGES WITH QUERIES AND RESEARCH QUESTIONS ON
CODE-SWITCHING WHICH I EITHER DON'T KNOW HOW TO ANSWER OR I DON'T HAVE
THE TIME TO. THE CODE-SWITCHING LIST IS UNMODERATED, AND SUBSCRIPTION
TO IT IS VERY SIMPLE: JUST SEND A BLANK MESSAGE TO
CODE-SWITCHING-SUBSCRIBE@EGROUPS.COM . YOU'LL RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION
MESSAGE, AND YOU'RE ON.

I BELIEVE A NUMBER OF NEW INTERESTING QUESTIONS ARE BEING RAISED
RECENTLY IN THE STUDY OF LANGUAGE ALTERNATION AND RELATED PHENOMENA,
BUT, TO MY KNOWLEDGE, NO SPECIFIC LIST ON CODE-SWITCHING EXISTS. LOTS
OF PEOPLE WORK ON WHAT IS DIVERSELY BEING CALLED "CODE-SWITCHING", AND
RAISE THEIR QUESTIONS IN VARIOUS LISTS. THE CODE-SWITCHING FORUM TRIES
TO FILL THIS GAP AND BRING RESEARCHERS, STUDENTS AND ONLOOKERS
TOGETHER.

HERE IS A FULLER DESCRIPTION OF THE LIST. PLEASE DISTRIBUTE THIS
INFORMATION WIDELY. THANK YOU,
