Language, Ideology, and Performativity: Codeswitching in Chinese Popular Music Lyrics (Top Student Paper)

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Codeswitching is generally defined as the alternate use of two or more languages. In this exploratory analysis, the codeswitching between Han varieties among Chinese popular music lyrics has been studied. This analysis examines the discourse functions of codeswitching and their interaction with the larger sociocultural context in Contemporary China. The dynamic relations between language choice, identity and linguistic ideology have also been shown in the analysis: Musicians use codeswitching to perform a collective multilingual identity, to reproduce a linguistic power relation in a story, and to make self-mockery on one’s own linguistic identity. Following previous studies on codeswitching in lyrics, this analysis further exposes the weakness of drawing simple causation from identity to language choice. Instead, the performance of a multilingual identity serves as a differentiation device (Irvine, 2001) opposing the Mandarin hegemony in popular culture, rather than as an authentication device of any single language.
