    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

    Yes! And a good point will definitely be Estuary English because this is a more recent dialect which has formed and we can say how it's causing regional dialect to become less apparent, which is either good (more understanding) or bad (less individuality).

    Guys I'm a little stuck, Labov says that men seek covert prestige and women overt, but the difference model States men seek status, and women week connections when they communicate? Can someone explain this? Are they completely different concepts which are opposites and I can then say 'in contrast in the prestige idea made by labov blabla'?

    My variation set up

    -Features of different types of accents in English (RP,estuary,scouse,Geordie,Birmi ngham) +there attitudes

    Features of global English (koines,pidgins,creoles)

    Theorists that surround variation (milroy,sebba,Fox,Giles and so on)

    A little mention as to how language spreads, but not to much (s curve,wave and so on)

    Then attitudes to variation (Prescriptivist and descriptivist debate while concluding Jean Atchisons analogies)

    There's two, there's Dr.Samuel Johnson's dictionary (1750's I believe?) which was the first dictionary written and it added 3000+ words into the English language

    Then there is orwells dictionary (1984 I think?) for language determinism which trys to reduce vocabulary in an attempt to stop politically incorrect thoughts

    There's also Henry fowler's modern English usage dictionary which came about in the 19th/20th century. This took a more relaxed approach and non standard forms were seen as more acceptable. It also opposed pedantry

    Personally I can't plan to save my life, but hypothetically if I could plan, I'd say 15 minutes just soaking in all the info for both section and making brief plans, then you have an hour on each question you do plus 15 free minutes here and there to ponder that the bell you're doing.
