dc.description.abstract The purpose of this research is to investigate why students at the" University of Zululand code-switch. The research focuses particularly on environmental and social factors which lead students to code-switch. It also looks into the functions of code switching. On the whole it is intended to contribute to the findings already made on code-switching. Many researchers have found out that people tend to code switch because it has become a habit to do so. Such a reason does not sound linguistically convincing to me. Others claim that people code-switch because they want to display their 'education' or that they come from urban areas or townships. This again is not convincing enough since code-switching is a reality and would seem to come naturally. It is not something one does when one feels like it is usually done unconsciously. en_US
