Follow the Code: the Impact of Linguistic Brand Codes on Brand Journeys

We define and explore linguistic brand codes, branded codes that mirror natural languages. Acquiring and displaying fluency in the brand code is shown to be an important marker of loyalty towards the brand and status within the brand community. Code learning is documented in personal narratives of the brand journey.
