Is anyone doing the AQA AS english lang exam?? Any revision tips??
what are you finding easier to do? Language and gender or Power?
and how to group texts??
I'm retaking this. I got a B last year but A2 is so difficult that I need to get an A. From experience, don't only learn one of either language and power/tech/gender. Learn at least 2. With groupings, you can almost go in with a set structure if your groups are broad but subtle enough. I'm going to use modality (deontic/epistemic), text image cohesion, pre adjectival modification, register, similar syntax. Last year I only did 3 groups but quite big paragraphs. That's where I messed up. It's way better to do lots of small groups as last year, I got confused between declarative and imperatives and did a group on declaratives but all my examples were imperatives.
Could someone explain the difference between deontic and epistemic modal verbs?
my teacher taught us that deontic modal verbs= certainty (e.g. 'You MUST read on'), whilst epistemic modal verbs= uncertainty (e.g. 'You CAN read on'). I'm unsure whether this is correct or not...
thanks so much for this post!!x what are the main theories for language and power??? and omg I am finding categorizing texts had too I need to find a good structure to follow
My teacher made us focus on Gender to get it perfect but I'm worried. I looked up some power theorists but I'm deffo doing gender.
I really hope we get a transcript for it. It's sooooo easy to throw in theorists :3
It's in 1 day guys. 1 day.
