This work aims at testing the possibility of code-switching between the DP-head of a relative clause and the relative pronoun in mixed German-Italian sentences. In particular, we will see if differences in acceptability emerge when the main clause is in Italian rather than in German, and with different mixed agreement patterns. Data have been obtained through an Acceptability Judgment Task administered to some 2L1 adults and teenagers, in order to see if different responses are given by the two different age groups. Finally we will discuss the implications that the results obtained bring about for code-switching theories.

Abstract

This work aims at testing the possibility of code-switching between the DP-head of a relative clause and the relative pronoun in mixed German-Italian sentences. In particular, we will see if differences in acceptability emerge when the main clause is in Italian rather than in German, and with different mixed agreement patterns. Data have been obtained through an Acceptability Judgment Task administered to some 2L1 adults and teenagers, in order to see if different responses are given by the two different age groups. Finally we will discuss the implications that the results obtained bring about for code-switching theories.
