This thesis analyses code-switching from Norwegian to English in the Norwegian online drama series `SKAM´. Three research questions ask 1. Why do the `SKAM´ characters switch from Norwegian to English? Are the code-switches fashionable or functional? 2. What types of code switches did the characters use the most? 3. Do the reason and types of code-switching differ from each season? This present study analyzed 43 episodes using a qualitative approach with transcriptions from the series, including a comparison of previous research, Bjørkedal (2018) and Muresan and Pop (2020).
