  • DESCRIPTION

    Language Change is an introduction to how English has developed, grown and changed through history. It is suitable for students at advanced level and beyond. Written with input from the Cambridge English Corpus, it explores the nature, origins and process of language change, as well as the attitudes towards it. Furthermore, it looks at the policies and politics behind encouraging or halting change. Using activities to help explain analysis methods, this book guides students through major modern issues and concepts. It summarises key concerns and modern findings, while providing inspiration for language investigations and non-examined assessments (NEAs) with research suggestions.
