Genre and Change - Mr Jackson's Language Change Revision

Genre and Change LO: To explore how genres and the language within them can change Ways genre can change Change within a genre, e.g. the way a sports fixture is reported after the event, or the way a recipe is written Creation of a new sub-genre, which belongs to a genre in one sense, but takes off in a different direction in another, e.g. a preview of the sports fixture, or a celebrity cookery book Sometimes it goes beyond adapting existing genres, as new modes of discourse are created, sometimes creating radically new genres. These may

develop because of technology, e.g fans discussing a match in a chat room, or multimedia based recipe apps. SINCERE male, 20, 58.

What generic label would you give to this text? Where would you expect to find the text? What language features identify this text as belonging to a genre?

What is the social function of this text? SINCERE male, 20, 58. OHAC and GSH, n/s, WLTM female who likes pubbing, clubbing & keeping fit for friendship, fun and maybe more in future. Genuine replies only please. Call me on ________. Genre Different names, including personal ad, lonely hearts. Probably found in a newspaper or magazine, especially now many newspapers dont charge for such advertisements. They are now often

available through text messaging and online services. SINCERE male, 20, 58. OHAC and GSH, n/s, WLTM female who likes pubbing, clubbing & keeping fit for friendship, fun and maybe more in future. Genuine replies only please. Call me on ________. Social function Obvious social function of the original text is to find a partner for the sincere male. However, consider the complexities: many people read the personal ads for entertainment rather than to find a new partner.

The writer seems aware that these ads arent always taken seriously, hence he describes himself as sincere and wants genuine replies only. Within this presentation, the purpose is changed: it is being used to exemplify a point about genre. SINCERE male, 20, 58. OHAC and GSH, n/s, WLTM female who likes pubbing, clubbing & keeping fit for friendship, fun and maybe more in future. Genuine replies only please. Call me on ________.

Language features Structure describe yourself first then desired partner, with WLTM acting as the link Grammatically ellipsis is apparent, often taking the form of omitted words and initialisms to replace whole phrases, e.g. OHAC for own house and car, but depends on readers knowing this meaning Conversion occurs to create verbs (verbification), e.g. pubbing and clubbing, from nouns pub and club to save space shows how new words can be created by altering a grammatical category.

Language features Pragmatics maybe more use to avoid direct reference to sex, typical of such ads as they appear in mainstream newspapers Anything else? Whats for pudding?

The noun pudding has undergone a semantic shift over time. Nowadays most people would think of a pudding as a sweet dish, and indeed the word is sometimes used to represent a whole course in a meal (i.e. What are we having for pudding?). The words original meaning, though, can be seen in the way we still refer to black pudding, which is essentially a sausage made with blood and fat. Etymologically the word pudding comes from Old French boudin, which meant a stuffed intestine. Whats for pudding? The recipe you have is for The Lord of Devonshire His Pudding, taken

from Elinor Fettiplaces Receipt Book, 1604 (the word recipe did not come into use until the eighteenth century). Although this book of recipes was copied out by scribes employed for this purpose, it was not intended for the wider public; such books of recipes and remedies were handed down by gentlewomen from one generation to the next, and added to by the next in line. The recipe for this pudding comes under the wider heading of November, as food was more seasonal then than it is now. What can we say about the title? Why is it called this? The Lord of Devonshire His Pudding

Title Dedication to an important person Punctuation change: Modern English would be Lord Devonshires Pudding, but in the sixteenth century the apostrophe was only just coming into use in English (from French). Some linguistic historians argue that this noun/pronoun/noun pattern (as in The Lord of Devonshire/his/Pudding) was the origin of the apostrophe to signal possession, with the possessive pronoun his being shortened to s. The Lord of Devonshire His Pudding Text

Read the text and, bearing in mind your expectations of what a recipe is like generically and the contextual information from previous slides, comment on what seem to be the most distinctive aspects of this as a recipe. n.b. Manchet is another word for bread, literally the finest bread made from wheat flour. THE LORD OF DEVONSHIRE HIS PUDDING Take manchet and slice it thin, then take dates the stones cut out, & cut in

pieces, & reasins of the Sun the stones puld out, & a few currance, & marrow cut in pieces, then lay your sippets of bread in the bottome of your dish, then lay a laying of your fruit & mary on the top, then another laying of sippets of bread, so doo till your dish be full, then THE LORD OF DEVONSHIRE HIS PUDDING Take manchet and slice it thin, then
