Description - Language Change by Shelley Martin

This text encourages students to investigate language change through both new data and readily available archive documents. Students are given opportunities to develop their research skills through investigation into how the following have changed: personal records including letters and diaries; word meanings; public records; political persuasion techniques used throughout history (including election posters); instructional texts (including recipe books from Mrs Beeton to the present day); advertising language; and dictionaries. Archive material is provided for investigation. The book is part of the "Living Language" series, which is designed to meet needs in the teaching of A Level English Language and A Level English Language and Literature. The series seeks to provide information, ideas and background theory which can be easily accessed through enjoyable activities and investigations.
