Cardiff University: Code-switching in literature

The research will analyse code-switching in Welsh, French and English literature. Code-switching is the result of language contact, a familiar phenomenon for us in Wales, since combining Welsh and English – or code-switching – is something that many speakers do.

Literature will be analysed in order to ascertain linguistic patterns and trends, with the data being presented in visual forms. The work will discuss the significance of the findings within literature, but also as part of a bilingual and multilingual culture.  

Start Date: 1 October 2014
