    Not really. I mentioned specific areas of linguistics that interest me, like societal appropriateness of utterances, and computer-mediated communication. I also talked a bit about the differences between the grammar of English and of British Sign Language, because I'm studying level 2 BSL, and it's really interesting to see how the languages differ. Plus, I've kept a notebook of the language/linguistics books I've been reading, so if I get an interview I can read back through everything I've read!

    ... I'm a dork. :p:

    I haven't heard of anyone getting an offer for eng lang/ling
    I wouldn't worry about the delayed application, they can't run out of places, they always have more applications than places availiable. They must have a lot of applications to deal with at the moment so I wouldn't worry :p:
