Quote
"Monolinguals often assume that this kind of switching happens because speakers are not competent in one of their languages - a sort of deficit hypothesis - or because a concept just can’t be expressed in one of the languages - a sort of lexical gap explanation. Analysis of recorded multilingual speech doesn’t support these ideas, however. Speakers who code-switch the most often are usually those who are the most fluent in both of their languages, and there are linguistic rules about where in a sentence a switch can happen."

Van Herk, What Is Sociolinguistics, chapter 11. (via transliterations)

The Wikipedia article on code-switching has a nice classification of the types and linguistic rules involved: 

  • Intersentential switching occurs outside the sentence or the clause level (i.e. at sentence or clause boundaries). It is sometimes called "extrasentential" switching. In Assyrian-English switching one could say, “Ani wideili. What happened?” (“Those, I did them. What happened?”)
  • Intra-sentential switching occurs within a sentence or a clause. In Spanish-English switching one could say, “La onda is to fight y jambar." ("The in-thing is to fight and steal.”)
  • Tag-switching is the switching of either a tag phrase or a word, or both, from one language to another, (common in intra-sentential switches). In Spanish-English switching one could say, “Él es de México y así los criaron a ellos, you know.” (“He’s from Mexico, and they raise them like that, you know.”)
  • Intra-word switching occurs within a word itself, such as at a morpheme boundary. In Shona-English switching one could say, “But ma-day-s a-no a-ya ha-ndi-si ku-mu-on-a. (“But thesedays I don’t see him much.”) Here the English plural morpheme -s appears alongside the Shona prefix ma-, which also marks plurality.

It’s breast cancer awareness month and that means it’s time for a round-up of SocImages’ interrogation of breast cancer awareness month!

Our favorite finding? That the color pink actually makes women take breast cancer LESS seriously. Oops. That one’s first…

A Voice for Men, a men’s rights site that is most notable for being featured as a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is currently hosting a conference on men’s issues in Detroit.

The images above are direct quotes of what some of the speakers at this men’s rights conference have said.

Sit back and marvel at the newest human rights movement.

Thanks to both David Futrelle at We Hunted The Mammoth for the excellent article that inspired this post and whey_ over at the againstmensrights subreddit for making the above images.

Please share this post far and wide so everyone knows exactly what men’s rights activists believe!

That’s actually one of the tamer Warren Farrell quotes. He actually said that incest victims enjoy it.

And not for nothing, but Karen Straughan was “awakened” to misandry when her son’s school put him in the remedial class when she KNEW he was a genius.

And Erin Pizzey thinks the FBI is run by feminists who also shot her dog.

Reblogging again for that last comment.

Just be aware that Paul Ryan is trying to pass a bill that allows rapists to sue their rape victims if they get an abortion in a state that allows it. If this isn’t the most awful thing I’ll hear for the rest of the week, I don’t know what is.

i can actually feel my blood pressure rising

Constantly torn between being true to my trans-woman-inclusive-separatist-feminist politics and my desire to continue fighting for bi acceptance

Constantly torn between being true to my trans-woman-inclusive-separatist-feminist politics and my unwillingness to stop supporting trans men and trans non-binaries

Constantly torn between being true to my trans-woman-inclusive-separatist-feminist politics and the fact that it’s nearly fucking impossible to completely remove men from your life

Practical Magic (1998)
There’s a little witch in every woman.

Why don’t we talk more about this movie? I promise you’d love it, tumblr:
With a nearly all-female cast and two female protagonists, it easily passes the Bechdel test
The story revolves around the relationship between two sisters
Deals with themes of domestic violence, isolation, bullying, and female empowerment
The villain is not defeated by the male romantic interest, but by a group of women coming together
Female solidarity!!!
MIDNIGHT MARGARITAS!
And above all, it’s funny, charming, and genuinely sweet
