Code-switching in Finnish preschool in Sweden : A qualitative study on language development in Finnish (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate how pedagogues in preschool can support children with Finnish as mother tongue in their language development in Finnish. Previous studies in the field of language development stresses the importance of the child's capability to understand and to make itself understood. Through the perspective of translanguaging, code switching is a natural part of a bilingual person's language, although the language is constantly adapted to the linguistic situation. In qualitative interviews, pedagogues in a Finnish preschool in Sweden described their perception of how code switching affect the language development, how the language development is affected when code switching is not selectable, and how contextual attitudes affect the tendency for code switching. The result showed that code switching increases the possibilities to express oneself, that a well-developed bilingualism has importance for the identity, and that social norms implies consequences to the individual's language practice.
