I'm posting here some of the papers I wrote during my Masters degree. They each received a distinction grade on the MA Modern English Language course at the University of Nottingham, but were not of course, written with publication in mind, and I suspect I will never find the time to go back and do the necessary additional work to make them so. I offer them here 'as is' for anyone who might be interested in these topics, or perhaps who are interested in studying this same course and would like to see some sample work.
