I come back to the UK to find my worst fears confirmed: the immigration officer at Heathrow returning my passport with 'There you go'. In the following weeks, I discovered that every male in the land was now a 'guy'; no more blokes, chaps or fellows. Everyone now 'guesses' and no longer 'supposes' and every other verb is prefaced by 'like'.
I learnt at university that we create different texts to enhance our identity. Our identity is now anchored in New York, New York. Why has this happened so swiftly in the past five years? Am I right?
Missing you already,
University of Exeter
