The second social arena is power: Thank you to the reader of the manuscript, whose suggestions were very useful and insightful, and whose knowledge of the field is exemplary.

The two constraints theory Sankoff and Socillinguistics and the government principle DiSciullo et al. There is, however, something similar in all the Egyptian monologues ana- lysed: I can never speak it to my mother.

A speaker may not be sure about the social arena: Many studies have shown that for most speakers, there is a prestige variety of L, the identity arrabic which depends on many geographical, political and social factors within each country, and which may in certain circumstances influence speech. However, as a linguist, one knows that most linguists would agree that whenever bassiounney has more than one language or variety at one’s disposal, it is indeed a good thing.

Therefore language policies in the Arab world have an input in shaping and modifying structural constraints on code-switching see Chapter 5. The major domains he identifies are family, friendship, religion, education and employment see also Myers-Scotton I think that it would be difficult if not impossible to consider code-switching and code-mixing two separate processes. The socially prestigious Sunni speakers are not influenced much by the standard, reeem the speech of the low-status Sociolingustics speakers is relatively more influenced by the standard a: While I grant that intrasentential CS puts different psycholinguistic ‘stresses’ on the language-production system from intersentential code switching CS a valid reason to differentiate the twothe two types of CS may have similar socio-psychological motivations.

Toen ik naar de bibliotheek ging, vond ik slechts dit oude boek, hoewel ik een boek over vrouwengeschiedenis in Frankrijk had rvillen lezen. MejdelFs study is based on two public seminars held in Egypt. This is almost assuredly because the Arabic word for ‘sensitivity’, hasa. It is not clear whether the vowel preceding the article is the case ending of the preceding word, or the ECA realisation of the definite article.

The phonological realisation of the definite article and noun ‘to read’ is also different in all five varieties. In that case she or he uses a code which will help keep the interaction undefined. The speaker contrasts sociolingjistics way of life and ‘their’ way of life.

The idea of a single frame-structure an ML falls short of explaining the last examples 26, 30, 33, 36, 39 for a number of reasons. When I went to the library I sociolinguistlcs found this old book.

The word maktaba, which ocurs in the examples and means ‘library’, is derived from this root. There are two kinds of islands, ML islands and EL islands. Also, these lists can sociolunguistics be exhaustive, because they are linked arabif communities and how they vary.

A tongue that speaks for him and a tongue that speaks against him. Instead, Ferguson placed much emphasis on the ‘external situation’ in determining language choice.

Note the following example, in which the speaker compares and contrasts how old people are cared for in Britain and the Arab world Wernberg-Moller Note that Mahfuz does not limit ‘language duality’ to a diglossic community or a bilingual one.

When he speaks sincerely his baesiouney are in colloquial. These are not easy questions to answer. Note also that it is sometimes difficult to decide what a system morpheme is, since, for example, some prepositions can also assign thematic roles. Phonological differences are still apparent. For this reason, I prefer ‘CS’ as a cover term; the two types can be differentiated by the labels ‘intersentential’ and ‘intrasentential’ when structural constraints are considered. The Arabic noun for ‘result’ would have been in this case nati: But if this happens it is always accompanied by omissions, repetitions etc.


On this view, switching depends on the topic first and then the participants. The following is an example from the data of Belazi et al. In the next section, as was said before, I consider diglossic switching as part of code-switching and shed light on some of the studies that try to assign con- straints on diglossic switching as part of code-switching.

It is noteworthy, however, that what Myers-Scotton calls scoiolinguistics does not apply just to switching between different languages, but also to switching between varieties of the same language. There are system morphemes from more than one code in the same projection of a complementiser.

These are called early system morphemes because they occur at an earlier level in language production and are in fact accessed at the same abstract level as content mor- phemes. Communicative competence is defined by Gumperz as the ability of the individual to ‘select from the totality of basziouney correct expressions available to him, forms which appropriately reflect the social norms governing behaviour in specific encounters’
