  • DESCRIPTION

    Attitudes to Language Cambridge Elevate edition is an introduction to the facts and fallacies behind ‘good English’. It is suitable for advanced level students and beyond. Written with input from the Cambridge English Corpus, it looks at contemporary attitudes to language, the role of technology, language variation – such as accents and dialects – and frameworks for analysing how people use language to discuss language. Using activities to explain analysis methods, this digital resource guides students through modern issues and concepts. It summarises key concerns and findings, while providing inspiration for language investigations and non-examined assessments (NEAs) with research suggestions.
