Verbal Strategies in Communal Meetings: Code Switching and Status Manipulation in a Bidialectal Yoruba Speech Community.
Funso, Akere
Language Sciences, v2 n1 p102-26 Mar 1980
Interindividual and intragroup code-switching between the local and urban dialects is related to the degree of interplay among sociocultural factors of status, integrity and self-esteem present in the speech situation. In formal meetings, code-switching is governed by these factors with speakers manipulating the parameters of status while speaking. (PMJ)
