This paper looks at types of code-switching and code-mixing between Standard Modern Greek and Cypriot Greek in Greek-speaking Cyprus; an attempt is made at drawing a structural distinction between (i) code-switching as alternation between the dialect and the standard language and (ii) language alternation in terms of dialect- or continuum-internal register variation. The second step is a conversation-analytic attempt to relate particular types of switches to pragmatic functions in localized contexts.
