This study examines how a bilingual Taiwan Southern Min (TSM) and Chinese speaker highlights his suppressed TSM speaker identity through multi-level positioning by codeswitching in a metalinguistic narrative interview. It hopes to raise awareness of identity suppression via language policy for the goal of fighting for language and social justice.
