Idiolect: An idiolect is a language spoken in a particular subgroup of a language community. In extreme cases this can be a single subject. One problem is the clarification of the word meanings and thus the possible determination of truth values (true, false) of statements.

Idiolect/Type/Token/Field: when you look at an idiolect, you can also start with sentence types - otherwise they have to be tokens because of the demonstrative pronouns, etc. - sentence types: are no longer ambiguous, if they are individuated compositionally instead phonetically or orthographically. Ambiguity: E.g. "Visiting relatives can be boring" - one should count them as different tokens of two different sentences.
