Yesterday it all read well. But now that I've put the manual analysis in a document for S to read in advance of our Skype, it all reads like rubbish. Are the arguments rigorous enough? Have I drawn suitable conclusions? I am usually accused of being 'a scientist', stating just the facts. But the facts are all there is. And when I try to deduce something from them, its not usually the 'right' thing. But my judgement is as good as anyone else's.
I've also included my outline arguments for the computer analysis.
Its a compliment to be called a scientist. A linguist is a kind of scientist.
