So I've been looking at resources and I was wondering if we need to know quotations from the theorist?

Put this on a few other threads but here are the ones I've memorised:

Theorists (that I've learnt about in class) -

Power - Wareing 1999 (3 types of power - political, personal,social group)
- Fairclough (Power behind/in discourse)
- Deborah Tannen (political correctness)

Occupation - Sinclair and Coulthard (initiation,response,feedback theory)
- Wareing (power in the workplace)
- Work talk theory (Lakoff?)

Accent - Trudgill (Norwich N pronunciation theory)
- Workman (hierarchy of accents by intelligence around the UK)

Gender - 4 D's (difference, diversity, deficit, dominance models)
- Dale Spender (feminism numerous theories there lol)

About 7 for accent and dialect
30 for gender
And about 8 for occupation so far anyway!

That confuses me because I thought the exam paper was the same for every student? Two questions you can choose out of, one required?

I thought it was the same paper too but when someone in my class asked the teacher what would happen if it was in the second question, when there isn't two to chose from she said we had nothing to worry about but yeah some colleges don't do accent and dialect.

If it's the AQA spec then it's basically accent and dialect, occupation, gender and social groups (not exactly the spec's wording but close enough). Power isn't a topic for the new AS (although the main ideas are still relevant to some areas like gender and occupation) and everyone should be doing accent & dialect.

If they're not doing AQA then that might be OK. For AQA, accent and dialect was on sample paper and is on the spec. Not every college does AQA, but most do.

Ahh thank you so much! I've had some issues with my college lately teaching us the wrong stuff in History so I was worried for English.
Many thanks :-)
