Language article round-up

As you might have noticed, I haven't posted much since last year but I'm hoping to add some more articles in the next few weeks. In the meantime, the EngLangBlog twitter feed is worth following.

Here are a few things that have appeared in the last week or two:

A new study on how young people manage to text and write formally. It's almost like young people aren't completely stoopid.
 - useful for ENGA3/ENGB3 Language Change and Language Discourses (and ENGB1 Technology for B spec people)

Why because isn't (always) a conjunction
- useful for ENGA3/ENGB3 Language Change

Lynne Truss loses the plot and maybe going insane over compound words.
- useful for ENGA3/ENGB3 Language Change and Language Discourses

Dialect words from around the north of England
- useful for ENGA3 Language Variation

I've got to admire Lynne Truss - she does put forward a good argument and in an amusing style that makes what she says seem so seductive. When you think about it though, comparing linguists with people whose job it is to fix and improve things is an empty and pointless argument.
