A2 English Language AQA coursework ideas?Watch
I was thinking about comparing the language used by British comedians with that of American comedians? I was also interested at looking at race stereotypes...so I could choose for instance Kevin Hart and Jason Manford?
I dunno, any ideas??
How the language towards step-mothers in books has changed over time.
The differences in magazines aimed at men and women.
The differences in adverts aimed at men and women or boys and girls.
How power is portrayed through political speeches.
That's all I can think of right now. If you need any more help don't hesitate to pm me
My idea was investigating place names and seeing the similarities between folk etymology and the actual toponymy of them.
My second idea is looking at an authors work and linking names to their origins (like in Harry Potter loads of the words have roots in language, particularly Latin).
