code mixing n relation to sociolinguistics
Weegy: Hi, what is your question? User: what is code mixing in relation to sociolinguistics Weegy: Any attempt to tackle the intricacies of the host of phenomena collectively labelled as ‘code-switching’ inevitably stumbles across a series of theoretical and methodological problems. [ On the structural side, major issues include defining the matrix or base language(s) and identifying types of code-switching and relating them to potentially universal grammatical constraints. On the pragmatic side, the challenge is to relate types of code-switching to particular discursive functions, which are often localized and specific to individual speech events. On the sociolinguistic side, the challenge is to incorporate code-switching in an overarching model of language variation within particular speech-communities; to define its similarities and differences to other types of language variation that are part of speakers’ active repertoires; and to identify the emic functions of code-switching in relation to overarching categories such as (sociolinguistic status), the structuring of communal identities or of identities and allegiances within communities of practice, etc. ] (More)

Diglossia and Diaglossia are basically one and the same.

In linguistics, diglossia is a situation where a given language community uses not just one dialect, but two: the first being the community's present day vernacular and the second being either an ancestral version of the same vernacular from centuries earlier (example: Arabic, Chinese) or a distinct yet closely related present day dialect (example: the German speaking world). As an aspect of study of the relationships between codes and social structure, diglossia is an important concept in the field of sociolinguistics. At the social level, each of the two dialects has certain spheres of social interaction assigned to it and in the assigned spheres it is the only socially acceptable dialect (with minor exceptions). At the grammatical level, differences may involve pronunciation, inflection, and/or syntax (sentence structure). Differences can range from minor (although conspicuous) to extreme. In many cases of diglossia, the two dialects are so divergent that they are distinct languages in the scientific sense of the term "language" used by linguists, namely: they are not mutually intelligible.
