This article presents the results of three interactive experiments carried out among bilingual speakers (Castillian-Portuguese) in the Argentinian province of Misiones, in order to investigate if some of the syntactic restrictions postulated for the intra-sentence code switching are also valid for so similar languages. Te key contexts for language switching are: after subject pronouns, negative and interrogative, and between auxiliary verb and infnitive. Te results suggest a correlation between partial permeability of syntactic restrictions and genealogical distance.
