The role of extra-clausal constituents in bilingual speech
The emerging of regular patterns in a bilingual corpus
The present contribution provides an account of the behaviour of extra-clausal constituents in bilingual speech. This topic has been investigated in several studies, but often with a particular focus on specific word classes like discourse markers and connectives. A wider perspective based on the notions of extra-clausal constituents and thetical grammar can, however, contribute to a better understanding of some of the dynamics of bilingual speech. This view is outlined throughout this paper on the basis of data from English-Spanish bilingual conversations recorded in Gibraltar, where a clear-cut division is found between elements belonging to the clause, which normally occur in English, and elements belonging to extra-clausal constituents, which normally occur in Spanish, and never the other way around.
