Sammanfattning (abstract):
This article addresses a terminological issue of categorizing bilingual speech. Previous categorizations often fail to contribute suitable categories for de-scribing the form of codeswitching in oral conversations, since none of them con-siders the characteristic features of spo-ken language use. Therefore, a new cate-gorization and terminology is suggested. This employs turn construction units, the main organizational parameter in spoken language conversations, as a criterion to distinguish two main types of code-switching. Codeswitching inside turn con-struction units not affecting the base language is called CODEMIXING. A change of the base language at the outlines of these units is called CODEBREAKING. Codemixing is further distinguished into free and bound codemixing, depending on whether ele-ments from two languages are syntac-tically dependent on each other, or are syntactically free or self-contained. It can be shown that the types of bilingual speech classified according to these cri-teria are deployed considerably differently in a German-Swedish corpus.
