Example text

If we consider these frequency patterns as code groups, it appears that different speakers use, in a sense, somewhat different codes. These codes are stored in the brain of the listener who uses in each case the appropriate code. New codes are continually learned whenever new people are met, particularly people belonging to different linguistic groups. This point of view is in agreement with the observation that our ability to understand and the effort required to understand depends on our familiarity with the speaker’s voice.

7 Myers-Scotton 1993:83. 8 The classification of this kind of switching in Myers-Scotton’s model remains difficult, since it is a marked choice on the part of one participant only (the farmer uses the unmarked language Lwidakho); her four types of switching refer to joint language choice by both participants, however. A similar case of divergent language choices is analysed as a case of exploratory switching in another part of the book (Myers-Scotton 1993:145). A cogent critique of Myer-Scotton’s switching types can be found in Meeuwis and Blommaert 1994 and shall not be repeated here.

Consequently, we need to examine closely whether or not samples of variety-alternation are indeed the manifestation of switches of communicative codes (see also Stroud 1992:149). In this regard, today’s ‘code-switching’ notion may subsume a number of possibly unrelated phenomena while excluding others which are clear candidates for being considered ‘switching the code’, in its original formulation. I thus propose that the scope of ‘code-switching’ be simultaneously (a) narrowed in order to exclude socially or interactionally meaningless variety-alternation, and (b) broadened in order to include phenomena of monolingual speech (such as prosody or the deployment of speech markers) which recontextualise talk by signalling the onset of emerging frames by virtue of the codes associated with them.
