Maliks (1994) ten reasons for code-switching

1. Lack of facility
2. Lack of competence
3. Semantic significance
4. To address different audience
5. To show identity with a group
6. To amplify and emphasize a point
7. Mood of the speaker
8. Habitual expressions
9. Pragmatic reasons
10. To attract attention
Conclusion :
The users manipulation of both English and
Arabic serve them well to achieve both their
communicative and stylistic objectives.

The study has shown that lack of facility,

lack of competence and habitual
expressions are the main reason for code-
switching. Besides these, mood of the
speaker is also another contributing factor
for code switching.

Content :
To find out the patterns of variation in the speech of teenage
migrants in Edinburgh and London, looking at the well-
studied and well-understood (ing) variable in English.
Linguistic production data were collected from 16 Polish
migrants living in Edinburgh, 21 Polish migrants living in
London, 21 Edinburgh-born and 24 London-born teenagers.

Among the native-speakers, there is no common gender

pattern, but style is statistically significant.
Style is not significant among the non-native speakers. Yet
there is gender distinction.
