Clarity for the layman[edit]

This article could use a bit of work. It's not very clear to someone like me who has not studied linguistics to this depth. Some real-life examples with explanations would be helpful. Not being familiar with the inside-ballpark terminology, the meaning of an asterisk symbol seems ambiguous to me. Please leave me a note at my talk page if you take any action or follow up, as I don't check my watchlist often these days. Thanks! Bob the WikipediaN (talkcontribs) 15:25, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
