I found that MLF model is the most suitable for analyzing codeswitching in my written Personal ads. However, I could not solve the problem of Islands which MYERS-SCOTTON mentioned in her model. Thus, I followed the Chinese study in considering the language of more words in the personal ad as the Matrix language (ML) and treated all syntactical parts related to the Embedded Language (EL) as codeswitched. I considered any number of noun or adjective phrases or block of sentences related to EL as CS.
