    I think JR..

    ..dictated part of the RN to PR.Look at numbers 7 and 8 in the RN analysis here: www.statementanalysis.com/ramseynote/
    I've always thought some parts sound like they were written by a man,although overall, it mostly shows a feminine touch and a style just like PR's.

    No offense to the integrity of your question and this thread, but this is the most illiterate analysis of a piece of written text I have ever seen. Would you trust linguistic analysis from a guy who can't string a proper sentence together himself? The points are interesting, but fairly textbook, and he's missed a lot as well. When I checked his 'credentials' (see home page) I was sadly not surprised.

    I think what a person has to say is more important than how they say it, don't you?

    You're welcome
    something to ponder:

    When the corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and the mortal have put on immortality, then shall we be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

    O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory?

    The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law.
    But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
    1 Corinthians 15:54-57

    No. Not when they purport to be a linguistic analyst.

    Interestingly, to hear Clint Van Zandt tell it, the great majority of profilers are on his side.

    Could you provide us with specifics?

    There is nothing worse than someone who makes a sweeping criticism like "Your theory has many flaws in logic"... or "This guy can't string a proper sentence together" and then fails to provide an example to prove their point.

    ETA. I see you are from the UK. I am a teacher in the UK and I'm afraid that if your post were a piece of work which you submitted to me to mark, I'd have had to use my red pen (tsk, tsk) :-)

    Nowhere on his website does Mark McClish claim to be a linguistic analyst. He analyses statements for deception - quite a different thing. He looks for particular word usage and types of response which are commonly used in deception.

    Yes it is an interesting website. I've often been tempted to purchase the software and have some fun with it!
