Ness-Consciousness Explained

On Britishness and Irishness: I did a bit of Googling, appending -ness to the national/regional adjectives that I thought would be most frequently used in the Anglosphere (awful term, that). As you can see, Englishness and Britishness make up the majority of search results, with Americans very much unconcerned by Americanness, even though they outnumber Brits by at least 5 to 1. United Irelander will be pleased to know that he tops the search results for Northern Irishness, which scored a piddling 200 results. There you have it: Manxness is more interesting than Northern Irishness.
