comment What is a real-world use case of using a Chomsky Type-I (context-sensitive) grammar
@MattFenwick I think your XML example doesn't show the true reason why XML is not context-free. The reason is that arbitrary tag names are allowed. If only a specific set of tags was allowed XML would be context free.

I don't find this answer helpful. Giving a link to "graph theory" is like giving a link to "programming".

comment Should a class know about its subclasses?
I don't think it is an exception. The class still doesn't know anything. The documentation knows.

comment Is it good practice to create convenience delegate methods?
I do not want to build the general JsonSerializer because I will not need it. I know that I need to serialize just this one concrete class in my project. I also don't like the DI in this case. If I would have already exposed the _CorpusJsonSerializer I would probably abandon the convenience method completely because then it would have not enough added value. I was just trying to isolate the serialization behaviour from the Corpus so the class isn't too large. Do you find the circular dependency bad even in this concrete case where one of the classes is in the same module and is private? ...

comment Do pointers really exist in Java?
@MichaelBorgwardt Pointers were invented before C existed and the term really isn't C specific but as it is used it always has some connection to memory addresses. Just use the term 'reference' when talking about this concept in Java there are too many differences.

comment Clarification of “avoid if-else” advice
So you just put the negated condition into the else if? That doesn't seem too DRY to me. And there is also the risk that if you change the condition you forget to change the negated one. I do not like it.
