The Subtle Act of the “Code Switch”
Joel Leon.

This brings back so many memories growing up. Both of my parents were the first in their families to graduate from college. My father went on to become a business professional. My mother, with her masters degree in hand, taught reading in elementary school. For my parents and their contemporaries, instilling a sound formal education and informal and unspoken lesson code-switching were taught from birth.

I always wondered how “ammalan” became “ambulance.”

Thanks for the trip down memory which in reality is only as far as today. Brilliant read, my friend. Brilliant.
