Abstract:

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

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