Encouraging the Expression of Linguistic Identity in Writing, Speaking, and Arguing

Category Scholarly References

Here you will find research articles, books, anthologies, and special issues of academic journals exploring code-meshing as a translingual writing strategy in the classroom and beyond.

Some of these resources include lesson plans and assignments that allow both domestic and international students to explore their diverse use of language outside of the dominant conventions of academic and professional writing.

Other resources are academic studies that have observed and traced the intricacies of mixed languages (including pidgins and creoles) around the globe and the diversity of dialects within a single language, like English.
