2LING 2301PDE varies very little from EME.Remnants of the previous case system are limited to the pronouns (I, me, he, him, she, 	her…  the shift from whom to who is currently underway as in "To whom did you send the letter?" vs. "To who did you send the letter")	Currently uses more comparatives and superlatives than inflectional ones (for instance 	shift to more & most over –er & –est) or even double forms the most coolest… .
3LING 2301New words in PDENew words (neologisms) – or uses of old words for a new idea are formed for all kinds of 	reasons:kingon – an unexplained icon that appears on a computer screenmickey – the unit of measuring a computer mouse distance – .005 inchshareware crippleware – demo software that lacks the full features netpreneur – internet entrepreneurOthers?

5LING 2301PDE BorrowingCurrent changes between EMW and PDE are mostly in the lexicon.  Much of this is due to developments of scientific–technological vocabulary and the rapid progress of computer/communications technology.  Some borrowing from Japanese (e.g. karaoke, hibachi, etc.)
6LING 2301More focused on Global society:In late 1800s and early 1900 in Britain, the Agricultural Revolution as well as Technological Revolution brought people off the farms and out of rural life into the cities (as few as 22% lived in rural areas by 1911).  The new call was for factory workers and prompted urbanization.   While urbanization "promotes diversity" it also brings cultures and language varieties in to contact leading to "uniformity".  As people come together they tend to accommodate to one another, developing compromise forms of behavior (including language) in order to maximize intelligibility and to achieve the greatest amount of social acceptance by those to whom they are speaking.	Increased communications and social mobility also have the impact of helping to standardize the language and development of rules of English grammar and usage.
7LING 2301On to become a World LanguageTwo major forms of English today are American English, and British English. However there are also many others.  Some 1st language speakers (e.g. Australia, possibly India, Singapore) some 2nd (or more) e.g. Parts of Europe, Countries in the South, East and West of Africa, China, Korea, Japan, etc.(More on that when we get to the Global language section).
