Abstract

This qualitative study investigated code-switching in telephone conversation, with
a focus on gender differences. Conversations were taken as samples from a local radio
call-in program. The telephone conversations were first listened to and then categorized
according to the gender. Once filtered to different genders, the conversations were
analyzed and the code-switches were categorized according to their functions. The
sample were recorded and downloaded from the radio online archive, which are then
transcribed and analyzed using Gumperz Semantic Model (1982). Six functions of codeswitching,
which are personalization or objectivisation, quotation, message qualification,
situational code-switching, interjection and reiteration, noted from the telephone
conversations. The function of code-switch used most by both the male and female
subjects is personalization or objectivisation. Study also showed that the females codeswitch
more than the male in the telephone conversations of this nature. This study also
provides pedagogical implications and suggestions for future research.
