Summary: This is an online version of Code-switching in bilingual children, by Katja F. Cantone. The book presents analysis about the theme, without making difference on child’s and adult’s code-switching. The data was collected spontaneously from the children (5 italian-german speakers), so the author could provide detailed empirical evidence for latest minimalist assumptions on the architecture of mind and confirms that code-switching is only constrained by the two grammars of the languages involved and reflects critically about the previous theories on the subject.
