Two questions in total, answer all.

1. In the “Examples of Accents and Dialects” topic, name one feature from Finland English accent or dialect. Explain how it differs from the mainstream / better known / prestigious variety, with examples.

2. Non-standard varieties often undergo changes over time. For example, in Hong Kong Cantonese young speakers are increasingly unable to tell apart the six tones (e.g. 試 vs. 事, see research by Peggy Mok for details).

Report an ongoing change in a dialect / accent that you are familiar with. Provide details so that you classmates can learn from you. Alternatively, provide further examples to one of your classmates’ replies here.

Note: Language change means changes in vocabulary, grammar, etc.. This is not about “language shift”.
