As we begin to look at the topic of Language Change for ENGB3 and start thinking about research topics and methods for ENGB4, my Y12 English Language students are looking at changing patterns in the palatization of alveolar consonants followed by the palatal continuant [j]. In many words the pairs of phonemes are being replaced by a single affricate.

The survey sheets they are using are here. They are (deliberately) far from perfect. One of the things we'll be considering next week is how effective this is as a research methodology, and what changes we might make to produce better results.
