Omtale Codes and Consequences
This edited volume examines the implications of the phenomenon known as codeswitching, where, in given situations, different people with access to the same linguistic repertoire (or one person in different situations) will sometimes make very different linguistic choices. Employing Myers-Scotton's concept of "markedness" the contributors examine codeswitching in situations like everyday conversation, literary texts, sermons, and others to show the underlying social subtexts of the choices people make.
