Rezumat:Language is a central feature of human identity. Simply by making “noises” with our mouths we can communicate information about gender, education level, age, profession, and place of origin, thus creating a portfolio of our identities. Identity has been a focus of research in various disciplines such as psychology, linguistics and second language acquisition. However, little understanding of the fundamental relationship between identity and communication has been offered. The present research paper challenges the notion of identity in relation to language by looking at how identities are created in communication encounters. The aim of this paper is twofold: (a) to come up with an extensive view of different levels and dimensions of identity by tackling various theoretical stances and methodologies and (b) to demonstrate that theorizing identity one cannot fail to include its “subjective’ aspect that is- commentaries on context, history and status of the interlocutors. The present analysis indicates that the very root of identity can be found in the process of interaction and it is not so much the community, but the communication network that defines the individual’s identity.
