A2 English Language Quiz on CLA (Speech, Writing & Reading) and Language Change

A personal quiz I made for myself to test my knowledge on all areas of Child Language Acquisition, and Language Change. As I made it for personal use parts of it  may be a bit confusing or the terms may be slightly different to ones taught at different schools, but I thought I'd share it anyway. I did it on Microsoft Word so you can print out as many copies as you like to test yourself at different times.
