Dear typologists,

can you recommend me papers that would describe (and perhaps even 
generalize) on how language may be used in different areas and 
typologically for a conscious or unconscious self-identification and 
group-identification in the social environement? (I do realize that this 
formulation is a bit fuzzy; sorry, I am not a specialist in 
sociolinguistic typology). (I am already aware of work by Trudgill, 
Golovko and Aikhenvald (on Vaupés))

Any hint would be greatly appreciated!
