    I find your writings interesting and informative, eventually! But I do often feel the need for a precis.

    Also... how about some concrete examples of your suggestions: eg you say

    "Teachers should be careful when teaching cognates that are graphemically or phonologically very close in the two languages." How about an example? (Using French, or German, which would suit the majority of us). One example can clarify many lines of writing. Examples are great!

    Thanks for bringing your work to our attention anyway!

    Sure. Sorry about that. I have only recently starting bloggind and it is difficult to forget how obscure the jargon used by the applied linguistics community can be. Examples; ruso (Russian in Spanish) and Russo (Russian in Italian) are phonologically (in sound) and graphemically (in spelling) very close to an Italian learner's ear and eye. Hope it's clear. :)
