comment Have I graduated from a master's course?
The only other things I can think of that follow the pattern of dissertation are one's body parts. Not I hurt the hand, but I hurt my hand. Is it only body parts and dissertations? It would be a strange coincidence if it were true.

comment Adding an L when appending an -ium suffix to a word? (Metallium vs. Metalium)
@BenjaminHarman: Do check the pronunciation of Nobelium in a dictionary. It's not pronounced no-bee-lium, it's pronounced no-bell-ium

comment Are data structures countable or uncountable nouns?
Those aren't algorithms, those are data structures, and they are countable. I would use the indefinite article a(n) in all of the three mentioned instances.

comment Vocabulary in context: what does 'rarified religion' mean?
It's not so much what "rarified religion" means that's bothering me (it seems to mean "a light, non-solid religion", as it were, but the preposition at. Is it possible it's a misprint of as? As in, "we permit it to function as a rarified religion"

comment Using little/low/big/large in a sentence
The number of ... is little sounds wrong. The number can be small, not little, but then you'd repeat small twice which doesn't sound particularly nice either
