Comparing Three Articles on the Film Along Came Polly

For my investigation, I am going to compare a newspaper, magazine and

an internet article. The articles are on films. The film I'm going to

do is Along Came Polly, from The Daily Mail, OK! Magazine and

www.bbc.co.uk/somerset/films/2004/02/along_came_polly.shtml. I will

get my example of 100 words from the first 20 sentences.

Hypothesis

My hypothesis is that magazine articles use longer words than

newspaper articles.
