I just wanna know if you can use song lyrics as the topic for the language investigation part of the coursework/NEA. I really don't want to start it if it's not allowed

I think so.

If this is AQA it says..


Students can choose to pursue a study of spoken, written or multimodal data, or a mixture of text types, demonstrating knowledge in areas of individual interest.

It also says teachers discretion
Remind them that Dylan was just awarded the Nobel prize.

Can students choose any topic for their investigation?

Yes, but the final decision is down to you as a teacher and your professional judgement.

The specification says: Students are not obliged to restrict themselves to those areas that are formally taught, as the basis of the investigation is the value of student-led enquiry supported by open learning.

Therefore, any area seen by supervising teachers as yielding interesting questions about language in use may be chosen.

If you do not feel comfortable supervising and marking an investigation, you can suggest alternative topics or approaches. While there is scope to do any topic – even those not covered as part of the course itself – you will be the one marking and internally moderating the work.

You can, but it's certainly an unconventional choice. What question were you thinking of answering? Because song lyrics are rarely written by just one person.

The problem with treating it as a poem is you might run the risk of turning it into an English lit essay instead, so make sure you have a solid question to base the foundation of your essay on.

Either way, good luck!

A member of my class is linking hip-hop music to the stuff we learned about language and gender, so it should be fine.
