Abstract [en]

The present study investigates the use of and the attitudes towards codeswitching in Spanish speakers in Sweden. The aim of the study is to provide a picture of how frequent the use of codeswitching is among Hispanics in Sweden. The study also investigates variation in attitudes towards codeswitching and tries to find out whether and if so in what way the use and attitudes change according to different social variables such as age, gender, education levels and language preference. The study was carried out amongst 56 Hispanics living in Sweden and data were collected through an online questionnaire. We found that the use of codeswitching is bigger amongst women and amongst the youngest group of informants. We also found that the attitudes towards codeswitching are linked to some social variables: female participants and those who see themselves as bilinguals and do not prefer one single language appreciated CS the most, and participants in their teens and the ones older than 50 appreciated CS less than the middle-aged participants. Our results do not show any differences in attitude between levels of education.
