Cilacap is geographically located in Central Java region and bordering directly with West Java. Ethnographically, Cilacap becomes a transitional area between Javanese and Sundanese ethnic. In linguistics, such area is called as language boundary. These conditions make some Cilacap residents speak Javanese, especially Banyumasan dialect, and some others speak Sundanese. Unlike the Indramayu and Cirebon communities in West Java who claim not to be part of the Javanese ethnic although using Javanese language, Sundanese speakers in Cilacap claim convincingly to be the part of the Sundanese ethnic group. In areas where the Javanese and Sundanese have direct contact, such as Pasar Cileumeuh, the communities are mostly bilingual. Uniquely, it is eassy to find conversations between Javanese and Sundanese speakers where they use their own language but they know one another. However, Bahasa Indonesia is also used as a connecting language. With that explanations, it is interesting to know: 1) the structure and 2) the motivation of the code mixing and code switching events in Pasar Cileumeuh. This paper is aimed to answer the questions. Keywords: code mixing, code switching, language boundary, pasar Cileumeuh
