diglossia - negative attitude towards the L variety

Hi everyone! I'm writing my thesis on diglossia-language attitude. I am at a part when I'm writing about the case when a speaker of the Low variety has bad attitude towards their own dialect and believe they are inferior to those who speak the standard variety of the H variety or standard language.

I am looking for some reference on this phenomena. Could someone recommend me some? Thank you.
