Following a career in Accountancy and in my retirement I have taken both an undergraduate degree and an MA in history. My MA dissertation topic concerned late-eighteenth century radical gentry in the City of Norwich who were sympathetic to the ideals of the French Revolution, and their clandestine journal 'The Cabinet'. I have no experience of linguistics, and my only language other than English is French, in which I am modestly competent. Norfolk Dumpling by birth and upbringing I have an enduring interest in the dialect and have written a good part of the Wikipaedia entry on that subject. Nowadays I strive to speak the Queen's English. I live in Berkshire.
