  Article:   CODE-SWITCHING IN THE WRITTEN COMMUNICATION OF THE ROMANIAN USERS OF FACEBOOK.

Authors:  ANDREI STIPIUC.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  Code-switching is a sociolinguistic phenomenon which appears frequently in the written messages (status updates) of the Romanian users of the most important online social platform. There is certain diversity in what concerns the foreign language used in these contributions, the switching type or the extent to which a foreign language is appropriated, depending on a series of social factors like the age, education, geographical location or marking of the affiliation to a certain linguistic community. The data gathered during many years of research tries to create categories, subtypes and strategies. These are meant to illustrate and explain, whenever possible, this sociolinguistic feature of the written communication between Romanian users speaking Romanian as their native language. This data can prove itself useful in sketching a certain language profile in asynchronous, computer mediated communication.

Keywords: Facebook, computer mediated communication (CMC), code-switching, Romanian users.
