Just bookmarking for now, still catching up. Great idea for a thread Zwaarddijk, and great job so far! :thumbup:

May I just suggest you somehow highlight key concepts in your posts as you introduce them, to make them easier to navigate?

I'd also like to add another reading suggestion for anyone interested in these things: Language Myths by Laurie Bauer and Peter Trudgill (eds.). This is not a systematic introduction to linguistics, rather the focus is on certain common misconceptions and these are taken as a starting point for presenting some basics.
