Abstract

Focusing on code switching in the Spanish-English lyrics of<i>bachata</i>songs, we find that speakers/singers use code switching stylistically to achieve the effect of subjectification. According to B&#252;rki (2003: 91), subjectification, in contrast to objectification, occurs when speakers achieve a degree of increased or decreased emotional involvement by switching from one language to another. In other words, a degree of identification with or distance from may be indexed and brought about by an expressive code switch. These types of switches are investigated here.
