Ethnic Group

Self-defined set of persons who share the same language (often, the same dialect) and certain customs, of behaving in formal situations, of dressing, and perhaps of eating; who sometimes share a common set of myths and beliefs which set them apart from other such groups, and who may also identify with certain recent common origins.
