O code-switching: fenômeno inerente ao falante bilíngue

Isabella Mozzillo


Every bilingual speaker presents a linguistic behaviour when he interacts with an addressee who masters – at some level - his own two languages: code-switching.

This linguistic phenomenon has been studied and described by many researchers as natural and inherent to the condition of bilingual speech. It is a communication strategy very suitable and useful pragmatically as there is activation of one or other language according to each interactive situation.


Key-words: code-switching, bilingual conversation, language choices.
