Abstract:Code switches in which a single morphosyntactic element is produced twice have been noted in code switching literature (Poplack et al. 1989, Sankoff et al. 1990, Myers-Scotton 1993, Nishimura 1995), but explication of their syntactic structure has remained elusive. In this paper, I present a structural analysis of morphosyntactic doubling in code switching inspired by Sadock’s (1991) dual-structure model of the morphosyntactic interface. I argue that certain code switches have an “upper structure,” representing one source language, and a “lower structure,” representing the other. Elements in the corresponding trees which are not shared by both structures are doubled.
