Rejected
Motivation: Received one constructive review, from a reviewer who had clearly engaged deeply with the topic of the manuscript and pointed out that with "little work" the paper could be much improved. The second reviewer, however, appeared to dismiss the paper entirely because they disagreed with my methodological approach (ethnographic and interview data), instead insisting that valid data would have been transcripts of recorded natural conversation. Ultimately, the Associate Editor adjudicated and ruled in favour of rejection.
