Abstract
This research looks at the instances of code-switching in Gamal Abdel Nasser’s political speeches. I cite three political speeches where code-switching between MSA and ESA is evident. The first speech was delivered in 1964 in Port Said. The second speech was delivered in 1965 at the Arab Socialist Union. The third speech was given in 1966 and addressed the Muslim Brotherhood. After evaluating the gathered data, I demonstrate that the speaker’s role is a consistent trigger behind code-switching.
