Languages Sharing A Sentence - Code-Switching


  • Nasrullah Mambrol Assistant Professor of English, Government Arts and Science College Nadapuram, India



Bilingualism and multilingualism are norms worldwide. People often use two languages within one conversation, often switching between the two within sentences. This does not occur in a random fashion but according to traffic rules. The rules are determined by the difference between concrete and grammatical morphemes as well as social factors. This phenomenon is called code-switching.
