Abstract:

This book discusses Nigerian (Shuwa) Arab history, demography and social
life pattern in Maiduguri. It describes codeswitching conversation among
Shuwa Arabs in Maiduguri, by identifying English (E) and Standard Arabic
(SA) lexical insertions used in Nigerian (Shuwa) Arabic (NA), Hausa (H) and
Kanuri (K) languages in codeswitching discourse. Our analysis to the
codeswitching corpus, shows integrations at different linguistic levels;
While (SA) phonological system, show complete integrations into Nigerian
Arabic phonology, English lexical items maintain their normative phonology
in the data, but some considerable examples from data violate English
phonological norms. At the morpho-phonological level, both (SA) and (E)
lexical insertions used in the codeswitching data completely integrate into
the Nigerian Arabic morph-phonological rule of stress and affixes. The zero
marked (uninflected) insertions in their word class or category, integrate
into Nigerian Arabic and Hausa Matrix languages, whose functional morpheme
elements form the constituent structure occupied by the inserted lexical
items. The study thus, revealed that, while (SA) lexical insertions show
complete integration at all levels (Phonology, morphology, syntax), the
English ones show integrations at the morpho-syntactic level, and a partial
integration at the phonological level.

Jidda Hassan Juma'a holds a doctorate degree in General Linguistics from
University of Maiduguri. He is a senior lecturer in the department of
languages and linguistics at University of Maiduguri.
