The advancement, over the last four years, in the field of codeswitching has suggested that a follow-up volume of the Editor's Codeswitching Worldwide (Mouton de Gruyter, 1998) is in order and that the present publication of Codeswitching Worldwide ii will allow the interested reader to realize to what extent scholars have come to grips with the alternation between two languages as an ordered phenomenon of language use. the core of the studies included in this volume consists again of papers that were delivered at the World Congress of Sociology, the fourteenth congress held in 1998 at the University of Montreal in Canada. in addition to the papers selected, a few additional papers have here been incorporated as they closely relate to the very topics discussed at the session Languages, codes and codeswitching, chaired by the Editor of the present volume. the international focus has once more been one of the major goals in our selection and the authors hailing from six different countries are discussing bilingual language use in over a dozen of different settings in such diverse areas as France (including Alsace), Israel, Japan, Malaysia. Mexico, Netherlands, Russia, Central and South Africa, Spain, and Turkey. the volume has been subdivided into five main sections, Section 1: Theoretical issues revisited, Section 2: Linguistic aspects: from morphosyntax to semantics, Section 3: Codeswitching as oral and/or written strategy, Section 4: Emergence of new ethnicities and Section 5: Communication codes in education. These sections are followed by a general bibliography compiled from the individual references supplied by each author and by a well-organized index to assist the reader in locating the terms and topics that relate to the various chapters. the objective of the present introduction is to highlight some of the issues discussed in the chapters that follow.
