Sounds like AQA.


Paper 1 Q1

Meaning and representation, modern text.

- Make sure that you focus on meaning (explicit and implicit) and representation of the writer, topic and text source. E.g for a blog:

a) how does the writer portray him/herself,

b) how do they portray the topic ?

c) how does the blog page represent itself?

Paper 1 Q2 Meaning and representation, older text. As above.

Paper 1 Q3 Comparison of language use.

- How is the topic presented in both texts?

- How many of the differences can be attributed to historical changes?

- How does the different context affect language use?

OR

Paper 1 Q5 Children’s Language acquisition – written
