... slight correction here (already inserted):

1. Regarding the AA lecture notes, I would not place too much stock on the 
idea that Wittgenstein was saying that there is only one kind of "nonsense." If 
you substitute "sense" for "family" -- a very reasonable substitution given the 
time frame -- the passage you cite is perfectly compatible with the idea that 
gibberish has differences from contradiction or falsehood.
