Bio:I'm a linguistics student and very junior researcher. More specifically, I'm an MPhil student and my project (I can't bring myself to call it a thesis yet) is in corpus linguistics. I do write about this sometimes and sometimes I even write about it in a vaguely coherent manner, but most of it at the moment is being worried, woeful and confused about obtaining my data. I have been assured that I will be worried, woeful and confused for the next four years, but I hope that the reasons for being so will change.

Sometimes I do editing stuff because I like to pretend a degree in English actually qualifies me for something. By "editing stuff" I don't mean that I get to sit at a desk and bark orders at people; I'm more the kind of person in whose direction is thrust a sheaf of papers and a request to make it make sense please.

I like reading (although perhaps don't read as much as I used to) and music (although perhaps don't listen to as much as I used to). I also like tea, although unlike the other two, I probably should drink it rather than collect it.
