Today I heard someone giving a talk say
That’s a mistake that creolists make all the time…to generalize what they have found to all creoles or some kind of language universal.
It’s ok. Impromptu speakers always make the same mistakes that they are faulting everyone else for making, especially when it comes to overattribution. What? I’m tired.

Generalizations Galore !
Should I add that linguists are all good at catching such mistakes ;-) !
