In this research paper i would like to speak about how evident Globalization is in qatar, and how it shows through code-switching. people in qatar tend to switch alot from arabic to english in order to express themselves.
my reasearch also focuses on why these people tend to shift more often.
I have done some surveys to get my data.
This is my abstract:
Globalization is the process of which countries are strongly influenced by a certain culture, through products, language, ideas, and many other aspects of that culture. This process has positive effects, but also has negative ones. The theory my work is based on is “The Communication Accommodation Theory” by Howard Giles, which clarifies the reasons behind the use of code switching. This paper will mainly discuss globalization within the context of linguistics as an answer to these questions: How evident is globalization through the process of code switching in Qatar? Why do people tend to use code switching in Qatar? And where does the process of code switching appear the most? The methodology I used to collect my data is online surveys, interviews with people from different ages, and observation of the use of language in different situations.
Findings through my survey:
