Frontmatter. General linguistics must be based on universals (or non-conventional aspects of language). On doing theoretical linguistics. Beyond universals and particulars in language. Not everything is a theory. General linguistics and the nature of human language. (Non)conventional aspects of language and their relation to general linguistics. On the innate building blocks of language and scientific explanation. Analysis and falsifiability in practice. Beware of the emperor's conceptual clothes: general linguistics must not be based on shaky dichotomies.
