“Equivalence Constraint (EC)”
Code-switches tend to occur at points where
the juxtaposition of L1 and L2 items does not
‘violate a syntactic rule of either language’
Apa yang dia claim?
what does he claim?
 The Equivalence Constraint claims that there
is linear order and structural hierarchy in
code-switched utterances.
No problem, ke mana dia pergi.
No problem, where does she go

Free Morpheme Constraint (FMC)
 The
Free Morpheme Constraint proposes
that code-switches will not occur within a
word such as between two affixes, and a
stem and an affix.


The Free Morpheme Constraint suggests that
switching is possible anywhere except between
a bound morpheme and a stem

“Insertional CM”
Structural characteristics of insertions
proposed by Muysken (2000) are that they
are usually single, content words (such as
 The word order of the sentence displays a
nested a b a structure. This means that the
elements preceding and following the
insertion are grammatically related.

“Alternational CM”
Alternation occurs when several constituents
are mixed in a sequence. Discourse particles
and adverbs are analyzed as alternations.
 Alternation is observed to display a nonnested A...B...A structure, which means that
the elements preceding and following the
‘switched string’ are not ‘structurally’ related.
 In alternation, a sentence begins with
language A and ends in language B or the
way round.

“Congruent Lexicalization”
Considerable contact between typologically
not-so-distant language pairs may lead to
‘congruent lexicalization’ (CL).
 The theory of CL characterizes the
convergence of two grammatical systems
into one that can take place.
 In CL, the grammar of the sentence is
shared either fully or in part by the two
languages.

“Example of CL”

…a…
…b…
Bahasa has no CL with English because both
are not a language in one family..
This may happen for a non-distant language
pairs.

Conclusion

Poplack proposed two constraints of
Code-switching: free morpheme
constraint and equivalent constraint.

Muysken proposed three types of Codemixing: Insertion, Alternation, and
Congruent Lexicalization.
