Since I will talk about a few things on this blog that I don't intend to explain every time I mention them, I've set up a couple of separate pages as a directory/glossary of terms/explanation.
If you look to the right of the page, near the top of the sidebar, you will see a few links entitled: "How to understand this blog".
So far, I have a page explaining what flatting is, since it's an unfamiliar term for North Americans and probably means something slightly different in the UK.
I also have a page explaining what my MA thesis is going to be about. Just in case I start rambling on about history and you don't know how it relates to anything.
