Subject: Noun Researcher
It's the Noun-as-descriptive construction that may be a source of some of
the puzzlement. One is left wondering if the noun in question is a object
of study. In this case, is the researcher researching the Internet? As
well as wondering if the noun in question is a tool. In this case, is the
research conduct by means of the Internet? I suppose this is compounded
by the usuage in some quarters that collapses the distinctions between
Cyberspace, Internet and World Wide Web.
