A STUDY OF CODE-MIXING AND CODE-SWITCHING IN MULK RAJ ANAND’S COOLIE

Abstract:
Code-Mixing (CM) and Code-Switching (CS) is a common feature of bilingualism. It is omnipresent in every human society and community around the world. It is present in the written dialogues of the characters of the novels. Indian English novels are marked with such examples of code-mixing and code-switching between English and Hindi. It is a representation of real-life conversations in Hindi or any language spoken all over India. The present paper explores the typology of code-mixing and code-switching in the conversation of characters in Mulk Raj Anand’s Coolie. The types are presented and limited to the dialogues/ conversation of the characters in the novel. The present study is based on the framework of typology given by Hoffman (1991). The data has been analyzed under each category and then, in the end, there is a collective discussion with consolidated findings. The instances of CS are italicized and presented without sentence, phrase and clause in which they are used. It is expected that this paper will be able to classify the types of code-mixing and code-switching used in the select novel.

Keywords: Indian English Novels, bilingual interaction, sociolinguistics, culture, society
