This thesis is a study of conversational code switching in Ni Hao Ma
program of Suzana FM in Surabaya. The program uses Mandarin and Indonesian
as the base languages and other codes such as Javanese, English and Malaysian as
complement. Such characteristics make the program more interesting to follow.
Therefore, this study is an attempt at making a description of the
functional types and switched elements of conversational code switching as used
in Ni Hao Ma program by analyzing the languages used by the speakers in the
dialogues. The writer uses the theory on conversational code switching by
Gumperz (1982) as the main theory.
From the findings and analysis, the writer finds that there are six
functional types of conversational code switching, i.e. quotation, addressee
specification, interjection, reiteration, message qualification, personalization vs
objectivization. Moreover, there are three levels of switched elements namely
word, phrase and sentence. The result shows that conversational code switching
having the functional type of interjection is more dominant than the other
functions because these functions mostly appear in spontaneous ways. Next, the
switched element on the level of word is the highest occurrences. It mostly
happens in conversational code switching in the types of interjection.
Finally, the conversational code switching can give a fresh nuance to the
hearers. Therefore, the program of Ni Hao Ma could be very gratifying because
the participants may switch the codes whenever they want.
