    Unhappy an academic/formal way of saying ''it continues to change''

    can anybody tell me please other ways of saying ''it continues to change''?

    maybe something more formal or academic.

    Its history has changed drastically over the past decades, and it continues to change.

    Thanks

    Thanks.
    I can't think of anything more formal or academic. You could say "... and it is still changing".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I do not see any reason of deleting the word ''please''

    Illustrations follow.

    A: Please tell me why you did that.

    B: Would you tell me why you did that?

    I have no problem with the word "please" but it was in an unnatural position in your sentence.

    Please can you tell me other ways of saying ...?
    Can you tell me other ways of saying ..., please?
