Telegraphic usually means 3 word utterances. Look through the transcript and see what the average length of utterance is; if it's 3 then it's telegraphic.

For post-telegraphic it's a little more complicated as you need to look out for the 4 features that make a post-telegraphic candidate:

> Compound and complex sentences (think back to AS)
> Extended noun phrases
> Range of verb forms
> Understanding of tense.

I'll attach a document I made while revising which includes all of the theories I know for acquisition which includes Crystal's Stages of Language Development, hope it helps!

Didn't see this. I don't have one I made myself, but on the first page I have posted some notes on theories that are easy to apply to texts as well as two images of a theory sheet for LC my teacher gave out.

Hope it helps, if there's anything specific you struggle with just ask and one of us will have the answer I'm sure!

Sorry, confused what thread this was in I'll C&P and link some stuff ^-^

Functional Theory - Halliday (only for lexical change)
>Language changes due to the needs of the user
>This is mainly technological advancements as we need to name new things, or reuse words to name new tech. This also makes other lexis obsolete such as horse and carriage because of the development of cars. This can be easily applied to any text.

Linked to archaisms, you can say that Accommodation Theory - Giles links to the high prestige/complex words such as "thus" "thence" etc have become archaic due to the informalisation of our language over time and so writers are downwardly converging towards a simpler lexicon because of the wider readership as well as a reaction to the more informal lexis we use in today's society.

Substratum Theory
>Language changes due to contact.
>Used to be invasions (so the French influence on our language, the Anglo-Saxon capitalisation etc)
>But now is mainly due to immigration and travel so new borrowings are brought about etc.

To apply the pre/descriptivist views, I find it easiest to say that pre-1755 was a descriptive era since language use was more liberal, but afterwards there was a period of prescriptivism popularity due to the dictionary, Lowthe's short intro to grammar etc.
