Errata for ‘An introduction to genetics for language scientists’ (Update 1)

This post is about various errata concerning the first edition (2015) of my book An introduction to genetics for language scientists published by Cambridge University Press. I thought it would be good to keep my reader updated so here it is…

Many thanks to those who have signalled these errors, especially to Pierre Dupont (Machine Learning Group, ICTEAM Institute, Louvain School of Engineering, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium), Scott Moisik (Language and Genetics Department, Max Planck for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen, The Netherlands) and Mark Rosenstein.

Needless to say, but if you do find errors or things that are not as clear as they should be, please do drop me an e-mail at with the page and the description of the problem. Thanks in advance!

Now, the actual comments & corrections are in a separate document: as HTML, as PDF, and even the R Markdown source.
