    Question paraphrase

    Since the advent of applied linguistics as a sub-branch of linguistics serving practical needs, there has occurred a change in the world of linguistics.
    Can anyone give a good paraphrasal of the underlined sentence apart from "change hhas taken place in the world of linguistics"

    kind regards,

    Thumbs up Re: paraphrase

    I would say:

    There has been such modifications to the linguistics world.

    Good luck...

    I think s/he'd be wanting something in correct English.
    "Such" doesn't work in this sentence. What does it refer to?
