Based ona novel from Pakistani English Literature, this research aims to show that code-mixing is not agrammarless phenomenon rather it is ruled governed activity at the phrase and clause level.
Thisresearch suggests that variations and changes in a language are an integral part of bilingualismand multilingualism. All the present data shows that the occurrences of various Urdu phrases andclauses impose no ungrammatical effect on the construction of English syntax. Language plays an important role in the society and this leads to the study of codemixing in relation to sociolinguistics and how code mixed utterances have been triggered as aresult of language gap, stylistic motivations, domains, societal factors, message intrinsic factors,physical settings and situational factors.
We find many Urdu phrases in English sentences in thistext, which brings out the creative and unpredictable nature of language users. It is therefore safeto conclude that motivations for code mixing enhance communication among peoplelinguistically united or disjointed. Key words: Bilingualism, multilingualism, code-switching and code mixing, non-nativevarieties of English.
Hence, there must be arelationship existing between language and society. The interdependency of these two entities,language and society led to the study of sociolinguistics.
Sociolinguistics is the study of allaspects of linguistics applied towards the connections between language and society, and the waywe use it in different language situations. Language is seen as a unifying force and a commonground among various people through which effective communication is carried out. It hashowever been noticed that even within the same language, there are different ways or styles ofspeaking.
This research focuses on some literary texts in which Urdu language predominatesin the English medium used. This research attempts at discovering why the people code mix intheir conversation. This study will examine the various reasons and motivations for code-mixing. This study will look at how the people have arrive at a communicative end via code-mixing andexamines the success or otherwise of this trend. Data has been analyzed only at the phrase and clause level.
Hornby list oflinguists , defines language as the system of communication in speech and writing that is used bya people of a particular country. Language is the fundamental tool for social interaction thatopens up the possibilities to convey, inform and share different ideas, thoughts, messages,feelings and viewpoints.
Babatunde asserts that:The indispensability of language has been inexorably tied to the existence of man in the society. Language plays an important role in our lives.
Surely, one of the tribulations of ranging outward from your house issooner or later you will encounter people who do not speak your language, nor you theirs. Someparts of the world, we may not have to travel farther than the next door to find languagesdisconnect and other part we may have to cross the ocean. This situation is so common inhuman history and society, several solutions for bridging this communication gap have arisen,sociolinguistics being one.
Hudson defines sociolinguistics as, the study of language inrelation to the society. It is the study of language as it affects and is being affected by socialrelations; it is also the study of language and linguistic behavior as influenced by social andcultural factors. Holmes defines sociolinguistics as, the way people use language in different contexts, and theway people indicate aspects of their social identity through language.
Sociolinguistics is ascientific discipline developed from the cooperation of linguistics and sociology that investigatesthe social meaning of the language system and language use, and the common set of conditionsof linguistic and social structure. Fishman defines sociolinguistics as the study of the characteristics of language varieties, thecharacteristics of their functions, and the characteristics of their speakers as these threeconstantly interact, change and change one another within a speech community.
Anything that either examines language in its social context or investigates social life throughlinguistics could be referred to as sociolinguistics. Sociolinguistics is the study and analyses oflanguage; its nature, characteristics as well as its structure in relation to the society where itfunctions. The focus of sociolinguistics is the effect of the society on the language. Sociolinguistics actually does not discuss a structure of a language, but it focuses on how alanguage is used, so it could play its function well.
From this statement, we can get a descriptionthat people also face language conflicts before sociolinguistics appears. So it is clear now that therole of sociolinguistics is to manage a language as its functions in society, or in other wordssociolinguistics deals with a language as means of communication.
Theymay choose a particular code or variety because it makes them easier to discuss a particulartopic, regardless where they are speaking.
When talking about work or school at home, forinstance, they may use the language that is related to those fields rather than the language used indaily language communication at home. A code is a system that is used by people to communicate with each other. When people want totalk each other, they have to choose a particular code to express their feeling.
Therefore, people are usually required to select a particular codewhenever they choose to speak, and they may also decide to switch from one code toanother or to mix codes, sometimes in very short utterances and it means to create a code.
From those opinions of the code given by many linguists above, we can make conclusionthat a code can be said as a language. The code is a form of the language variation that isused by a society to make communication with other people.
A particular community has its own characteristics, including the way of itscommunication. This community is called speech community. Bloomfield offers the simple definition of speech community. He says that a speech communityis a group of people who interact by means of speech. One example of this phenomenon is language switching and mixing. The phenomenon of people having two ormore than two codes languages is called bilingualism or multilingualism.
According toBloomfield, bilingualism is a situation where a speaker can use two languages as well. Gumperz also mentions that bilingual people usually use their own idioms for in-groupcommunication and the common language for their interaction and communication withoutsiders. In this case, the bilinguals have a repertoire of domain-related rules of languagechoice meaning that bilinguals are able to choose which language that he is going to use.
This condition leads them to do code switching and code mixing. It is a common phenomenon in societies in which two or more languages areused.
Studies of code-mixing enhance our understanding of the nature, processes and constraintsof language and of the relationship between language use and individual values, communicativestrategies, language attitudes and functions within particular socio-cultural contexts.
Code mixing is a mixing of two codes or languages, usually without a change of topic. Nababansaid that, code mixing is found mainly in informal interactions. In formal situation, the speakertends to mix it because there is no exact idiom in that language, so it is necessary to usewords or idioms from other language.
Referring to the different characteristics and features of code-mixing, various linguists havedefined it in different ways. Thus this definition accommodates inter-sentential switching and intra-sententialmixing both under the term code switching. Code-mixing is an interesting phenomenon in bilingual societies. Code-mixing leads to languagehybridization that in turn gives birth to the issues of language maintenance, shift, and desertion.
In code-mixing sentences, pieces of one language are used while aspeaker basically using another language. Codemixing often occurs within one sentence, one element is spoken in language A and the rest inlanguage B.
In addition, Nababan, a linguist, said that code mixing is found mainly in informalinteractions. In formal situation, the speaker tends to mix it because there is no exact idiom inthat language, so it is necessary to use words or idioms from other language.
Ithappens when a speaker requires a particular code, in order to switch or mix one code to anotherand even create a new code. If we talk about features of code mixing then wecome top know that; Sridhar, a linguist, has elaborated the following three features of codemixing through analysis of a text.
They are mostly from day to day life and every day usage items, which have acceptable equivalent in the language in which they are mixed. In some cases, English propernames and acronyms were not counted as English linguistic elements.
One thing that often alarms the parents of bilingual children is when their children start switching back and forth between languages mid-sentence. Both popular culture and older academic literature will tell you that mixing languages is a bad habit. You may encounter teachers who still believe this, and will bring it to your attention as a concern. Take comfort — the old-fashioned critics are wrong. The most recent literature tells us that most mixed use of language is a natural and positive development in bilingual learners.
The purpose of this article is to know the study of sociolinguistic in linguistics. Sociolinguistic is study that is concerned in the relationship between language and society with the goal of a better understanding of the structure of language and of how languages function in communication. In language, there is a code.
Code-switching and code-mixing are part of the Study of Bilingualism in Sociolinguistics which have become a very popular language, it is to be an influence for smooth communication in Indonesia because many Batak Toba and Mandailing speakers who realize code-switching and code-mixing using other languages such as Indonesian and English in a particular conversation in everyday life.
Sociolinguists use the term code to denote. Tag-switching is the switching of either. Some sociolinguists describe the relationships. Our Punjabi friends used to throw in here and there. Different kinds of relationships are often expressed. Often, code-switching may also be a result of change in roles. Nothing appears to change except the topic of discussion and with it the code.
Definitional Issues 2. Sociolinguistic Dimensions of Code- switching mixing 4. Language Changes in code- switching mixing 5. The aim of this paper is to provide a complete overview over the phenomenon of code-switching and code-mixing. The history of the research of code change has undergone various periods that have shown how complex the phenomenon of code-switching and code-mixing are. In the course of research of code change it has become clear that code-switching and code-mixing can be investigated from different perspectives. Researchers focused on code change after they had realized that linguistic forms and practices are interrelated.
