Language and Identity

After reading the three essays regarding language and identity, create a thoughtful post that incorporates responses to the following questions, as well as any other observations about the readings you would like to include:
1- How is language connected to identity? Use textual support (specific references to the texts) to support your statements.
2- What hierarchies are created in society through language?
3- What writing techniques do the authors use that were especially effective in conveying their ideas? (You don’t need to know specific terms; for example, stating Baldwin sounds angry (*tone) is fine).
