Annotation

The present study investigates the spoken discourse in a foreign language classroom at a Russian university from the perspective of sociolinguistics. The classroom discourse is viewed as a bilingual interaction between teachers and students, in which the language is both a medium of instructions and an educational objective. This study also analyzes the transcribed interaction recordings to determine communicative and didactic discourse functions of code-switching used by Russian teachers and students.

        Key words: classroom discourse, verbal interaction, bilingualism, classroom bilingualism, language competence, code-switching, interference, code-mixing.
