To draw further scrutiny to Victorian conventions, Carroll incorporates several languages features and play. Employing the use of the useless educational system in Victorian society, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland depicts several moments within its tale where Alice attempts to conduct herself by reciting facts she learned in school to try and maintain a sense of her life prior to falling down the rabbit hole into the world of Wonderland. The first evidence of this occurring features in the first chapter succeeding her tumble. She begins to wonder how far she has fallen and attempts calculating the exact distance away from the centre of the Earth she is; “let me see: that would be four thousand miles down, I think […] but then I wonder what Latitude or Longitude I’ve got to?” While latitude and longitude are not typically capitalised, this literary decision often subsumed into works by this author makes the words more apparent and places emphasis on them as their grammar is odd and more easily spotted by readers. This ensure they also notice when Carroll clarifies “Alice had no idea what Latitude was, or Longitude either, but thought they were nice grand words to say”.
