Code-switching refers to the phenomena of mixing of words or phrases from foreign languages while communicating in a native language by the multilingual speakers. Codeswitching is a global phenomenon and is widely accepted in multilingual communities. However, for training the language model (LM) for such tasks, a very limited code-switched textual resources are available as yet. In this work, we present an approach to reduce the perplexity (PPL) of Hindi-English code-switched data when tested over the LM trained on purely native Hindi data. For this purpose, we propose a novel textual feature which allows the LM to predict the code-switching instances. The proposed feature is referred to as code-switching factor (CS-factor). Also, we developed a tagger that facilitates the automatic tagging of the code-switching instances. This tagger is trained on a development data and assigns an equivalent class of foreign (English) words to each of the potential native (Hindi) words.
