Salia, Rachel

This thesis examines code-switching in Morocco. Specifically, it looks at the Morocco's linguistic history and previous studies done about Moroccans code-switching from Moroccan Arabic to French. It then examines Moroccan's conversations on Facebook, looking at which genres Moroccans code-switch and why. This exploration looks at an existing genre of linguistics that has not yet touched upon new forms of media. It argues that there is another code "” an "international" code, which is a language composed of internationally understood terms.
