Code-switching - the alternating use of two languages in the same stretch of discourse by a bilingual speaker - is a dominant topic in the study of bilingualism and a phenomenon that generates a great deal of pointed discussion in the public domain. This handbook provides the most comprehensive guide to this bilingual phenomenon to date. Drawing on empirical data from a wide range of language pairings, the leading researchers in the study of bilingualism examine the linguistic, social and cognitive implications of code-switching in up-to-date and accessible survey chapters. The Cambridge Handbook of Linguistic Code-switching will serve as a vital resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as a wide-ranging overview for linguists, psychologists and speech scientists and as an informative guide for educators interested in bilingual speech practices.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Reviews of the hardback: '... reads like an international who's who of the field. It covers all important dimensions of code-switching, all the main theoretical frameworks, and representatives of all the major 'schools'...' Michael Clyne, University of Melbourne
'This outstanding volume brings together surveys of the major theoretical and methodological approaches to code-switching by leading scholars of sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics. ... will immediately become an essential resource and stimulus for further work by students and established scholars alike.' Carol W. Pfaff, Freie Universitat Berlin
'... well-written ... the breadth of topics ... makes this volume an essential resource ...' The Linguist List
'... a most welcome addition to the CS literature.' Language
'The Cambridge Handbook of Linguistic Code-switching succeeds in offering a little something for everyone ... whether the reader coming to the text works in linguistics, applied linguistics, or education research, and whether s/he reads a chapter, a section, a cross-section, or cover-to-cover, this edited collection offers new insights - and new quagmires - for students and researchers interested in the phenomenon of code-switching. Tout compte fait, a worthwhile read.' Canadian Journal of Applied Linguistics
'On the whole, most of the material is reasonably clear, it is authoritatively presented, and it is packed with plenty of fascinating data, so it will undoubtedly offer an important resource that will be highly appreciated by researchers and students alike.' Journal of Sociolinguistics
