Translanguaging – a birth of new languages or a threat to a language loss?: The analysis of in-migrant and out-migrant contexts
Keywords:ethnolects, in-migrants, language emergence, language loss, migration, out-migrants, translanguaging
Recently, reinforced social, political, economic, and other pull and push factors have encouraged extensive global migration. Human mobility also assumes the displacement of languages from their original geographic locations to new locations and language ecologies. One of the critical linguistic outcomes of migration is the translanguaging process that takes place through the mixture of a simplified version of two or more languages without strictly following the established language rules. While some research revealed the phenomenon of translanguaging, more was needed to apprehend its impact on the formation of new languages and variations. Even less research has studied the fate of migrant languages under the pressure of translanguaging. This paper investigates whether migration triggers the development of new languages or leads to the fade of migrants' native languages. The key focus of this paper is to convey a message to educational institutions to take care of both local and migrant-native languages so that it does not negatively affect communication within the teaching and learning process.
