This book examines the reasons for codeswitching among Indonesian, Javanese and Arabic in religious meetings, called musyawarah, held by the members of an Indonesian Islamic Da’wah Association (IIDA) in Malang, East Java, Indonesia. The study is based on the collection and analysis of 13 hours of recording of naturally occurring conversational data, which reflect issues central to the social and religious life of this community. In this context, codeswitching is examined to understand why it occurs, and what it tells us about the social and linguistic interactions occurring in this community. As a basis for understanding codeswitching, this study draws on sociolinguistic perspectives to analyse the data, including the Situational and Metaphorical Approaches, the Markedness Model, and Politeness Theory.
