    for the language acquisition section im just going over key theories (innate, cognitive, interaction, imitation), important studies by a few linguists like chomsky and crystal and making sure that i'm OK with recognising stages of development in grammar, spelling and stuff.
    for language change i'm revising key dates, such as the printing press and johnsons dictionary, the main features of language for each century from 1500 to today, and the origins of words and semantic change.
    there isnt really too much to revise, ive found that i just need to make sure that i know all the material really well.
