Linguistic mythbusting

Here's an article about some of the most pervasive myths about language and questioning why linguistics is not a more prevalently studied or respected field. I personally have an answer to this: since everyone speaks language, people all feel like experts, and they think that they understand most all there is to know about it already. The same is true about graphic creation too. I have a growing list of my own "Visual language myths" that I'll post about one of these days, though I often touch on them in passing anyways.
