English abstract
This study presents findings obtained from 280 fourth year high school students in Ormoc City, Philippines concerning their attitude towards English and towards Fil-English code-switching. It is a partially comparative study that surveys similarities and differences of attitude towards code-switching between 140 public high school students and 140 private high school students. The survey incorporates both quantitative and qualitative methods. The result shows that participants are generally positive towards English and Fil-English code-switching. However, there are more private school students who have a neutral attitude towards code-switching, compared to public high school students. In addition, the result shows that code-switching amongst the 280 high school students is a marked socio-linguistic activity. Furthermore, the result shows that Fil-English is both subtractive and additive bilingualism from the students’ viewpoint. Finally, findings show that the participants’ attitudes towards English and Fil-English illustrate diglossia in their speech community.
