Description - Talk in Two Languages by Joseph Gafaranga

One of the most common phenomena of language use among bilingual speakers is language alternation. Theoretically this is impossible, both grammatically and socio-functionally. Drawing on Ethnomethodology this book addresses the crucial question of how to account for its actual possibility, and offers a critical reading of current approaches.
