    A2 Language investigation, I have no idea how to analyse and compare my two texts in terms of grammar. Can anyone help me? the investigation itself is on ''how different types of printed media portray Lady Gaga'' - one is an article on the times and one is an article from cosmopolitan.

    PLEASE HELP ME!

    all you need to go through the both articels picking out the different grammar highlight the similar things in a bright colour and underline the things that are different. you could also look at the sentence structures, word classes and the different views hope this helps

    The problem is, i'm really not sure what I'm picking out si being picked out for. Like, I've picked out that there is a difference in sentence structure, but I have no idea how to say it is relevant to what I'm investigating...

    Why don't you go back to the original question for your investigation and look at the different representations of her? Is there a difference in the ways the papers/magazines portray her?

    If there is a difference then maybe give us an example from each text here and people might have a better idea how to suggest grammatical points to pick out. If there aren't any clear differences or they seem vague, then your data's probably not much use and you'll need to find texts that you can analyse in more detail.

    For analysing grammar in my investigation I looked at things like nouns and pronouns - so the effect of say, the collective 'we.' You could also look at sentence type and the effect. So if, for example, a simple sentence is used to make a point about Lady Gaga, then that would be relevant.
