      In my experience the main "triggers" are
      1. Original language of reported discourse "me dijo que "I am sick of
      this" etc.
      2. Cultural "markers to show identity to a certain group (in the
      Mexican-American context this is usually the ocassional "ándale"
      thrown in to purely English discourse.
      3. Humorous references, literal translations for comic effect.
      4. Words with no easy equivalent: "a bunch of something" which in
      Spanish can have many translations

      ...That is all I can think of but I would be eager to see your work
