I was hoping to study language change and gender and I have loads of letters from my nan's brother from when he was in the war sending them home along with postcards, newspaper articles and a recording from him to home from that time! I just literally don't know what my hypothesis could be or what I'm even investigating with them?!!

Can anyone give me some help or advice, like what can I do with all this information, what the title could be, what I could particularly investigate with all of this and how I can present my findings with like charts etc.

Thank you

With the newspaper you could look for a modern newspaper article and investigate how the representation of war in the media has changed over time. However if you wanted to keep it personal by using the postcards you could again find data (postcards, letters home) from a modern source and maybe investigate how attitudes or reaction to direct involvement in war has changed over time. It may be easier to analyse just language change ( like don't get your data from a female source) so things don't get too complicated but by all means include gender as a mitigating factor that may have influenced language techniques. Hope this helps
