Abstract

Have you ever considered how many different languages, religions, cultures there are in the world? Ask yourself that question or perhaps goggle it, but we are sure the answer won’t actually can’t be found that easily. The relationship between language, identity and cultural difference is a major concern for many sociolinguists and researchers. As it is well-known, language, identity and cultural variation are closely connected and affect each other. People who speak more than one foreign language, or who simply speak a foreign language know that it is not just enough to know that particular language. When acquiring a foreign language it is very important to know about the county where that particular language is spoken, and then to learn something about the culture presented in that country. Since there are numerous different languages and they all belong to a certain group where certain expressions are different than in the other groups. Consider British and American English, for some people they are one language having different pronunciation, for some they are completely different languages, and perhaps for some these two represent something totally different. There are certain moves, words, expressions that are different among them! Not just among them consider Turkish and Azerbaijani Language there are a lot of things that can be easily said in Turkish and not in Azerbaijani Language or vice versa the same thing is with every other language that people face with. What is identity and how it related to the language we speak, are some aspects that are dealt with through out this paper. Keywords: language culture, language position, identity, language variation, dialect.
