The sometimes massive occurence of code-switching between Cornish, English, French, and Latin in Cornish miracle plays has often been the focus of lamenting by purists rather than that of academic research. Especially the relatively recent discovery of a Cornish play about St. Kea and King Arthur („Beunans Ke“) in which code-switching is widely and systematically used offers us a glimpse on the sociolinguistic situation in Cornwall in the early 16th century. The four languages were used by the Cornish scribes on different levels, most of all to underline social stratification of the dramatis personae and to add nuances to various statements. A comparison between the instances of code-switching in Middle Cornish and Middle English miracle plays reveals similarities and differences in the socio-cultural situations of Cornwall and England at the time.
