Good afternoon Jack

I am satisfied that the paper in its latest iteration is ready for publication. As others have noted, I think that it will prove to be as seminal in the future as the 1989 paper has been for the past 30 years. In this respect and with their eyes to the future, it is likely that your reviewers will never be wholly satisfied!

I now look forward to reading other author's l-e-t papers from this point onwards that do not simply drop in "Whitehead 2019" as a passport to acceptance, as they have done in the past with their almost obligatory nod towards "Whitehead 1989". I shall certainly not accept a bald "Whitehead 2019" in any future EJOLTS papers that I am tasked with reviewing, looking instead for actual critical engagement with the extensive and comprehensive 'meat' that is in this paper.

Love to all

Pete
