Rhetorical figures in Spanish hip hop (English)
Abstract [en]

The present study is a delving in the rhetoric of Spanish hip hop with focus on five songs of some of the most prominent artists in the genre in Spain. The aim is a study of the rhetorical figures present in these songs and which function they have in the context of the songs and of hip-hop. The analysis is based on previous studies in the same field as well as different dictionaries and handbooks of rhetorical figures but many conclusions also derive from the investigators own interpretations . The underlying purpose of this study is to locate tendencies in the rhetorical expression used in these songs; the result will be a suggestion of what possibly could be representative for this genre in Spain.
