Speakers of more than one language use their languages in different ways. In some interactional contexts, in some communities, speakers use a different language to each addressee in a conversation though all parties know both languages. In other contexts, bilinguals code-switch between their languages within a conversational turn. Bilinguals may also adapt their language use to suit changes in the interactional context. How is it that they do so? I explore one theoretical conjecture about the dynamics of such adaptation and the attentional states that may mediate it.
