Paper 2: accent, dialect, sociolect and occupational discourse

If you're looking for material on the topics for paper 2 of the new AQA English Language spec, there'll be some posts coming up after half-term. There's plenty on the blog already, though but it's labelled using the old specifications.


  • So, if you're looking for stuff on regional variation, try here.
  • Accent material can be found here.
  • For social variation - class and social groups, try here and here.
  • For occupation and language, try here and here.
  • And for gender and language, try here.
  • And for Language Discourses and attitudes to variation try here and here (but be aware that language change, ethnicity and world Englishes are A-level only topics and don't appear in the AS level).
