Crynodeb

A study of three separate documents which demonstrate how code-switching operated in medieval England between the three principal languages used (Latin, Anglo-Norman, English). In addition to providing evidence of the process and of its lexicographical significance, the article attempts to extrapolate some linguistic and sociolinguistic conclusions and argues that documents of this type enable us to observe not only the results but also the process of language contact in action.
