Abstract [en]

This study discusses how language affects the identity formation for Bosnian-Croatian speaking youth in the Bosnian city of Mostar. Moreover, the aim of this study is to look closer on how youth in the city of Mostar uphold the Bosnian-Croatian identity through the usage of language as an identity-signifier. Previous studies have shown that the influence of language on the individual’s identity can both unite and separate individuals from each other. The study reveals the effect of the relationship between language and identity, where collective identity can be maintained by preserving the language and its historical value through Bourdieu's concept of habitus and capital. The Bosnian-Croatian youth maintain the collective identity through their language use.
