Code Switching and Collusion: Classroom Interaction in Botswana Primary Schools.
Arthur, Jo
Linguistics and Education, v8 n1 p17-33 1996
Describes the hierarchical values attached to languages in Botswana as reflected in an educational policy placing English in a prestigious position and marginalizing indigenous languages. The article argues that code switching to English during ritualized question-and-answer performances derives from conventions imposed during colonial rule. (24 references) (Author/CK)
