Also keep in mind if the start date isn't for months they won't be in any rush. Just wait for a few more weeks then maybe email HR or any contact that was given with the description.

The best place to get an answer to this, if not from a Linguistics prof, is a career advisor at the university you are considering. Maybe look at the skill specifications of any current Linguistic jobs being advertised.
Your BA and MSc won't disadvantage you if you then have a PhD in Linguistics. But it also sounds like you aren't sure which path you want for your career and if that comes through during an interview you could be passed over for someone who presents as very committed and can give a good answer to the 'where do you see yourself in 5/10 years' question.

What do you mean 'you don't think so'?
You are trying to prove you have the ability to research a PhD level question in a field that no matter the area will require you to show you can pinpoint the main issue, improve on the ideas already present in th field of study, do the work scientifically, and present results that further the knowledge and offer more questions to consider.
You can achieve exactly this by offering a presentation of whatever scientific work you have completed to date.
What exactly do you think you should be doing if not this??

If you provide your own funding most applications will be of interest to a university. If you are applying to funded PhDs the Uni will only care if they make you an offer and you tell them you're waiting to hear back from your other applications. You can accept one position and later withdraw for a better offer but this is frowned upon. But really, who cares, this is your career. Good luck.

Nowadays, if you don't know the PI, your application will need publications, proof you can provide funding for projects, and are an 'expert' in the field. These things do matter in STEM

Don't kid yourself that you have time. You don't, you need to have a review done by yr1, experiments carried out and result to present yr2, further direction yr3, publish, publish, publish

Needless to say that wasn't possible so I worked and struggled through the write up with very little help from him and it took two years due to 'communication' problems with my 2nd super. It'll be hard but you can do it.

I was in the lab until my funding ended. Had to get a job to pay the bills while writing up but this did not go down well with my industry supervisor who thought I should take a year out to write up.

To me it sounds like your location may be a bigger issue than your age. Most UK PhDs are RC funded and age is not a deciding factor. But you may need to relocate. Good luck!

What are your qualifications for proofreading? And why hasn't your course prepared you for applying for these such jobs?

You may be/feel angry but imho you shouldn't. Just because you are doing 'different' work to the other student does not make you more important/first author over them when it could be their idea/study design.

My first thought is you are likely to pass with minors!! But on a serious note, the external will be an expert in the field which is probably why they become first port of call for your supervisor. Nothing to worry about.

If you have to published papers you have more than some PhD holders. Just push forward with your write up, submit and move on to a better project/department/career. You've earned it after years of work.

Projects can be handed off because you no longer have the time to start/complete the new line of research, and also because it can secure further funding for the dept. Don't take that to heart.

A 2.2 will rule you out unless you have an MSc which then becomes more important than your 2.2 especially if you achieve a merit or distinction.
