Negra Como Soy: Discussing Code Switching Linguistics

Negra Como Soy Ep 7 - Code Switching Linguistics

CODE SWITCHING. Does your brain get tired when switching languages? In this episode, we explore cultural differences in manner of speech and how it affects individuals. With laughter and candor, Doni and Rhonda share their experiences.

The term "code switch" is becoming more prevalent in cultural circles, but according to Encyclopedia Britannica, it is the “process of shifting from one linguistic code (a language or dialect) to another, depending on the social context or conversational setting."
