Abstract: 
This survey of language use and users in Singapore
sought to find out who speaks what language, to whom, in
what context, with what attitude, with what level of fluency,
and to what end. This project surveyed 716 students from the
Primary 5 cohort of Singapore schools, randomly selected on
the basis of ethnic group (i.e., Chinese, Malay and Indian) and
socioeconomic status, using a bilingual survey instrument. In
its qualitative phase, follow-up studies were conducted with
12 participants who were randomly selected from the three
ethnic groups, across a broad spectrum of social classes.
