Abstract: Discussed are the functional uses of code-mixing across cultures, specifically the function of expressing modernization. Studies of code-mixing in bilingual communities show that code-mixing is functionally oriented. Attitudes toward code-mixing, which have generally been negative, are contrasted with the sociofunctional uses of code-mixing to illustrate how it has now become an acceptable norm in bilingual communities. The impact of code-mixing on the linguistic structure of the languages involved is examined through the cases of Lingala-French in Zaire, Swahili-English in Tanzania, Spanish/Navajo-English in the US, & Tamil/Hindi-English in India. A. Sturrock.
