(*) identity is the product rather than the source of linguistic and other semiotic practices and therefore is a social and cultural rather than primarily internal psychological phenomenon
(*) identities are relationally constructed through several, often overlapping, aspects of the relationship between self and other, including similarity/difference, genuineness/artifice and authority/delegitimacy
(*) identity may be in part intentional, in part habitual and
less than fully conscious, in part an outcome of interactional negotiation, in
part a construct of others’ perceptions and representations, and in part an
outcome of larger ideological processes and structures.
