Anyone got any predictions for the AQA A2 English Language paper?
I'm thinking question 1 will be a baby or a toddler speaking to themselves, just becauuse AQA seem to be absolutely evil this year and it's the end of the current specification so they don't care who they're gonna &^$&% over...
Not too sure about the language change question though.
Thoughts?

This isn't really relevant to your question but I am doing this exam and I need some help on how to structure the language change section? I can't find any other thread on English language B rn

Find a quote that you can say something about language change with, like a loan word, is spelt different to normal (non-standard), unusual grammar, etc, and then comment on it and why it's like that, then how it may have changed from the time the text was written to now, e.g if your text is from the 1800s you'd say how it might be now. If the text is present day it might be worth saying how it might have been in earlier centuries.
Also context, give context when talking about any of the above, e.g we have the French loan word ***** because of the Normandy invasion etc ...

ahhh, for some reason I think for first half of paper it's gunna be a reading one and a writing which is annoying for me as i'm hoping for a speaking, but just don't think it will be or maybe like you say a baby talking alone

Our teacher has told us to follow this structure:
Context, audience, mode/genre, purpose (use as an intro, also use quotes to support each one)
Then talk about how language aids the purpose of the text
Then spelling and orthographical differences that suggest change
Then specific archaisms and lexis that suggest change
She then says to say how the text links to theories and attitudes, but personally I like to link to theories and attitudes throughout the text
ALSO REMEBER TO USE EXAMPLES AND REFER TO LANGUAGE FEATURES AS THIS IS WHERE YOU GET MOST MARKS.

Question 1 is always a speaking transcript

I don't think they would make the question the child speaking purely on their own as the question is analyse the speech of caregivers and children. There is on past paper where the child talks to them self all throughout the text and then part b has is a small conversation whith an adult and a child.
