English Language A2 Coursework Introduction-75
For my Language investigation I will be exploring the representation of gender in women’s and men’s magazines and how the language use is different to appeal to or converge with the ways both genders differ in language use and what they stereotypically should be concerned about, for example men are strong and powerful whilst women are stereotyped as concerned with beauty and health.

I am going to use the contents page from each magazine.

This will give me a clear representation of what articles or areas the magazine is using to aim at its audience, I can also analyse the use of dynamic and stative verbs.

I will also use one article from each magazine that is similar in content or meaning and analyse this.

I am going to analyse various word choices within my data to try and prove or disprove my hypothesis.

feelings.) Men’s magazines use more dynamic verbs than women’s and women’s use more stative verbs to show emotion.

I have chosen Men’s’ Health magazine and Women’s Health magazine because they clearly are directed at a strictly male or female audience; they also have similar content which is varied from health to food to fitness etc.Make sure that you look at them and understand how they have been put together and what you are expected to do.Don't just collect everything and hope to analyse it all.If you are planning something too ambitious and time-consuming, it will be hard to do it...a topic that you are interested in If you aren't interested in what you are investigating, it will be hard to stick to it.Read around your topic You should aim to find out as much as you can about the area you are investigating. Use the textbooks, student handbooks and emagazine archive for ideas.Narrow down your research questions and think of realistic aims and/or hypothesis You might start with a fairly broad question that you want to answer.It could be something like one of the ones below: If you don't know what a good investigation looks like, you will have no idea what you are aiming for.Your teacher will either have provided you with some of these or have access to them.As lots of students are embarking on the Language Investigation part of the Non-Exam Assessment, I thought it might be handy to pick up a few points which I think will be important. You can't ask huge questions about language or try to prove or disprove an established theory about language use.The Language Investigation is unlike anything you have done before (unless you've done an EPQ) and it's not an essay or an analysis, but probably the closest thing to a university dissertation that you will do at this level. Big ideas aren't a problem - and we'd encourage you to think big on most of this course - but in a language investigation you will need to pinpoint your questions and be really specific.
