...that lazy journalistic device where they say that something must be popular, or authentic, or blessed by Jeebus because they typed 'x' into Google and got some large number of results? Well, I just got 9 and a half million results for 'defne Conformance'. That, by the way, is a misspelling of 'define Conformance'. If you didn't know what 'conformance' means, which I didn't, well, it means 'conformity'. "About 9,510,000 results (0.32 seconds)". For something that doesn't mean a lot, and that's on a good day. So can we all stop pretending that the number of search results is a meaningful metric for anything.

This is an intriguing book, a tour de force of the world of languages, written in the 40's in a fesity but scholarly style. Expect a blog post at some stage.

Domestic Language Immersion
'Immersion' is a word like 'fluent'. It gets used a lot talking about language-learning, but like 'fluent' it can end up meaning next to nothing if you're not careful to explain what you mean by it. So what is it, and what do I mean by domestic immersion? I... #chinese   #languagelearning
