Abstract



 



This work is a linguistic study of Nigerian musical artistes, especially
of the Hip Hop genre. The study shows that the artistes skillfully use language
alternation strategies to enhance the aesthetic and rhetorical qualities of
their music. It is revealed in the study that the language alternation patterns
involve major Nigerian languages and English, and, they interact with elements
of the lyrical structure, namely, the lines, rhymes and stanzas to enhance the
musical qualities of the artistes‟ works. Language alternations have other
connotations as they also bear the qualities of identifying the artistes‟
linguistic identity and preferences. It also has semantic significance as when
some lexical items are used to highlight code switching occurrences like
contrastive and expressive code switching as well as reformulations and
repetitions. It is also used to achieve a greater audience/participant
constellation and greater understanding of the discourse/message of the song.
