This is an ethnographic study investigating the code-switching (CS) practices of a friendship group of five adult, female, non-UK born, Arabic-English bilinguals based in Manchester. By viewing CS as an evaluative stance and a tool for negotiating identity, the aim is to examine the ways in which the participants’ CS is utilised as a linguistic resource to perform their interactional identities. The main evaluative strategy explored is ‘attitude’ and the way it is expressed through the participants’ individual and relational CS moves.
