hmm true say. i've been looking at past papers and the only texts which seem to come up for language change are those from around 1500 onwards i seem to find. Kind of awkward seeming as we have to revise all the influences from norman invasion, vikings, anglo saxons etc which i dont see how I can link in to the answers lol
I'm not revising all the stuff from those early periods, because I don't see the point Really, all you want is the dates about the dictionary/printing press and the semantic change terms and things, so that you can make comments about how language isn't standardised blah blah blah. It seems more important to talk about context and society than whether a word was introduced by the Romans, to be honest :p:

Nah, I'm not revising the really early stuff either. As long as you know what happened its alright as its not like you are going to have to go into great detail or anything.

-Simplification
-Addition
-Deletion
-Assimilation
-Substitution

Deletion - final consonants may be dropped e.g. 'ha' instead of hat. Also unstressed syllables are often deleted, e.g. 'nana' instead of banana.

Substitution - children will substitute easier sounds for those they find difficult: 'r' becomes 'w' (rock, story) 'th' becomes 'd' 'n' 'f' (there that thumb) 't' becomes 'd' (toe), 'p' becomes 'b' (pig).

I got them from a sheet given to me by my teacher, not sure about the others, although common sense tells me addition is probably the opposite of deletion lol

Our teachers wont tell us how we did in our coursework (they didn't last year either). I have no idea how well I have to do in order to get at least a B overall.

Nevertheless, gonna pull out all of the strings for this last exam. Aiming for an A.

I suggest that you have a look at the specification:
http://www.aqa.org.uk/qual/pdf/AQA-5...06-W-SP-08.PDF

You can look through past papers here:
http://www.aqa.org.uk/qual/gceasa/englab_assess.php

Try not to write in all capital letters or use exclamation marks in place of question marks in the exam though! :eek:

-Simplification
-Addition
-Deletion
-Assimilation
-Substitution
Assimilation: This takes place when the pronunciation of a phoneme is affected by the phoneme that is next to it.
e.g. The way most people pronounce the word 'sandwich' as 'samwich' is an example. Here there is an omission of the letter 'd' and an assimilation where the 'n' changes to an 'm' because the 'w' that comes after it makes an 'm' sound easier to produce.

No idea about simplification or addition (the two that haven't been answered).

Hey, I've just been doing exactly that. Found two..

- http://www.aqa.org.uk/qual/gceasa/englab_assess.php

That should be it..
not all of the years have the Language Change one, only two do I think (that's all I could find) and some of the texts have been removed for copyright purposes which kinda sucks.
Hope that helped.

Does anyone know where I could find more information on some terminology?
I did have a long list but obviously, being me, I've gone and lost it. I know stuff like borrowing, broadening, narrowing, amelioration, pejuration, archaic lang, umm.. think that's all i can remember.
Same for language acquisition, what else is there other than over-generalisation and over-extension?

Would be great getting some help with them =)

Yeh that's exactly the same as me.
I've had too many bigger exams like philosophy and ethics that needed proper revision, aswell as the exam we had earlier. So tonight, tomorrow and thursday morning is gonna be completely packed with revision.

This is completely unrelated im sorry - but how do you change the colour of you name? Your grey colour looks really cool

SORRY - to get back to english. this exam has always been the one that ive been most worried about.

I get the feeling a lot of it is pointing out the obvious though and explaining it.
but there is so much VOCAB to learn ARGH. and those flipping theorists. DULL.

Ive got a long heavily essayed music exam on thurs morning as well so my hand is gonna ache big time. and i will not be in the mood for bloody language change and aqu. :mad:
