There are many ideas about languages. These ideas - or myths - appear in many different areas. They can be about words, vocabulary or pronunciation. They can be about languages being complicated or not, about some languages being more beautiful than others and about the conception that it is easier to play with some languages than with others. Is it possible to verify those ideas and if so, how?
