This chapter examines associations or indexes of codes in relation to language ideology and language attitude in Egypt, with reference to concrete examples from public discourse, including talk shows, films, newspaper articles, and books. These data will help explain ‘direct’ and ‘indirect’ indexes, as well as the process of indexical layering that takes place during ‘talk about language.’ Topics discussed include diglossia and first order indexes; second order indexes; direct and indirect layering of Standard Arabic (SA) second order indexes; Egyptian Colloquial Arabic (ECA) indexes; and English indexes.

Keywords:   direct indexes, indirect index, codes, language ideology, language attitude, Egypt, indexical layering, Standard Arabic, Egyptian Colloquial Arabic
