About face

I'm taking my adviser's advice and completely reordering my first chapter, which basically means rethinking the whole thing conceptually. I'm now basing my entire work on Preston's concepts of linguistic awareness and folk artifacts (1996), instead of perception and salience. I was a bit reluctant to do this because it's a lot of work, but I have to say it's looking so much better. That's the thing about my adviser - she's horrible to get a hold of, but once you do she'll have some gem of advice that makes the waiting (almost) worthwhile.
