Within the field of Sociolinguistics, this study investigates a group of native Swedish speaker’s attitudes towards code switching. The data were gathered by using an online questionnaire inspired by Dewaele & Wei’s (2014) survey investigating attitudes towards code switching. The data sample consists of responses from 34 participants in total from two generations and 204 answers were given. In addition to the questionnaire, interviews with four participants were conducted. The findings from the questionnaire reveal that code switching is generally accepted by the participants, but also that the younger generation has a more positive attitude towards code switching. However, the interviews reveal some differences in contrast to the questionnaire. Further, the results imply that a change might be undergoing in attitude towards code switching in the older generation. The findings are important for further research.
