    would it be ok to just revise language change for Section A? because there are too many variation theorists to learn for the question on language variation.
    I would be careful because question 3 (section B) can be on variation, I wouldn't advise skipping out anything

    Is it me or is Political Correctness really vague? I really hope that PC and Accent & Dialect aren't on tomorrow's paper.

    Does anyone know any theories related to language reflectionism (PC). I have enough for determinism but I can't find any for reflectionism

    I've just made clearer notes on accent and dialect, including the theories/ideas you need to know for it!

    This is all I have on reflectionism. I think if PC was to come up it would be along wish a Lang change debate and how PC is a 'top down change' where we can argue whether PC is a descriptivist trait or a prescriptivist. Because it's an enforced change, which is Presc' behaviour, but then it's constantly changing (to suit the needs of the users which is the functional theory) yet this makes it appear as if it's a descriptivist feature. Content wise there's not much for PC, but evaluation wise it's a heaven! Name:  ImageUploadedByStudent Room1434635318.233392.jpg

    So for determinism we can refer to;
    Empty drum theory
    Stephen Pinker
    Colour term theory
    And Orwells 1984 Newspeak Dictionary

    But when it comes to reflectionism there's no references😄 can you see why it doesn't make much sense?😄

    I've never heard of any of them theories 😰

    I think this could clear up reflectionism for you though, it was more of a, oh wait our first theory doesn't quite make sense, left flip it 😂Name:  ImageUploadedByStudent Room1434635896.334295.jpg

    So in short, reflectionism is something we're told about so we can create a counter argument using our own knowledge, I'm guessing.

    I prefer change way more so I'm preparing more for that for the first one, make sure you do papers in times conditions and link it to the theories, prescriptivist and descriptivist views and the metaphors from jean aitchison

    If we get a question based upon accents and dialects, would we mention how language spreads? Such as the theories like S curve, wave model and so on
