How (by what mechanisms?) does society produce complex ideas such as gender, race, national identity or ethnicity, through language?
You can identify some of the individual steps and mechanisms by which language communities produce these complex ideas, and provide examples and processes for that production. How do individuals participate in this process to identify with and change ideas about gender, ethnicity or other socially-constructed concepts?
