Good rule of thumb is linguistics ''as a social science'' is by nature '''descriptive'''.[[/note]], as languages evolve over time - linguists concern themselves with studying actual usage, warts and all, rather than trying to be a GrammarNazi. The following tropes are not strictly linguistics failures, simply poor usage:-]

* LearntEnglishFromWatchingTelevision: While this one is definitely true to an extent as many people will tell you, writers often assume that this applies to ALL languages whether they share inherent similarities (like most latin based languages) or not.

'''Author's Mistakes ([[TranslationTropes Foreign Languages]]):'''
Examples of these tropes ignore the differences between languages and assume they all translate perfectly 1:1. And then they get the translation wrong.

'''Audience's Misconceptions (Linguistic Dissonance):'''
While not made up of mistakes in itself, these tropes can cause difficulty with audiences who are unaware of the difference within languages over time and from place to place:

* GetTheeToANunnery: Wordplay and humo(u)r that's lost on modern audiences, who don't get the references.
* HaveAGayOldTime: Unintentional hilarity derived from originally harmless words becoming amusing or taking on [[InnocentInnuendo sexual connotations]] over time.
* PronounTrouble: GenderNeutralWriting can get lost in translation when one language is more strongly gendered than another-- so much for your character's AmbiguousGender.
* SeparatedByACommonLanguage: Misunderstandings and (more) unintentional hilarity encountered across different dialects of the same language.
