Linguistic Drift?

On behalf of a student here, I would like to ask if anyone knows of any
recent literature that attempts to *predict* the course of language
change. For example, has anyone predicted that a particular change would
occur in a particular language for a particular reason? Specifically,
this student wants to predict language change based on the need to reduce
gender bias in English.

Thanks for any and all help.
