No idea, but it would be interesting if there were a kind of envelope code for code-switching within which one could add relevant language codes. The phenomenon is mostly oral, of course, but for any kind of transcription (say of a focus group in which Bambara and French get mixed) a flexible coding mechanism might be useful.

Spanglish is a thing. Code-switching between English and Spanish. I’m going to be doing an Alice in it, but it’s been used for The Little Prince and other books. What sort of code would suit this?
