There are two types of references you might consider;
(i) Textbooks on programming language design/comparison
(ii) literature on Domain Specific Language design.
An example of each is below.
Programming Language Pragmatics (3rd edition 2009) (http://
www.cs.rochester.edu/~scott/pragmatics/) is a textbook that discusses
language design and implementation.
Some of the work on Domain Specific Language Design may also be of
interest to you;
is a recent survey.
