Immediate impressions of this 'scholarly' thesis, written by somebody with too much time on her hands, re-hash (there's a nice food word!) of every legit to semi-legit to outright cockamaney theories, quasi-research, feelings etc. ever written on the subject and don't think this article advanced knowledge one iota.
Writer appeared to be out to impress readers with extent of vocabulary, numerically speaking.
Oops, think I'm falling into the same trap, will stop now!
