Question: How do geographical and social factors influence the varieties of English that people speak?
Length of the essay: 1800 words
You should plan and structure your essay in a balanced, coherent and organized way.
Your discussion should consider most, if not all, of the following aspects: the range of varieties of
English; examples of characteristic features and variables such as verb-forms and aspects of
pronunciation; style-shifting and the social and cultural factors involved, as well as the linguistic
mechanisms by which this is done; the differentiation between the geographical and social factors as
influences; link to the theme of identity in use of a particular variety.
You should acknowledge the sources you have used or consulted by giving proper citations and
compiling a bibliography. For a concise introduction to referencing, see the booklet Academic
writing: acknowledging your sources.
