Abstract: Due to increasing globalization, urban societies are becoming more multicultural. The availability of large-scale digital mobility traces e.g. from tweets or checkins provides an opportunity to explore multiculturalism that until recently could only be addressed using survey-based methods. In this paper we examine a basic facet of multiculturalism through the lens of language use across multiple cities in Switzerland. Using data obtained from Foursquare over 330 days, we present a descriptive analysis of linguistic differences and similarities across five urban agglomerations in a multicultural, western European country.
