SIMPLE WORDS

You might suppose at once that it is the BIG words or the technical words which are most misunderstood.
This is NOT the case.
On actual test, it was English simple words and NOT Dianetics and Scientology words which prevented understanding.
For some reason Dianetics and Scientology words are more easily grasped than simple English.
Words like “a”, “the”, “exist”, “such” and other “everybody knows” words show up with great frequency when doing a Method 2 Word Clearing. They read.
It takes a BIG dictionary to define these simple words fully. This is another oddity. The small dictionaries also suppose everybody knows.
It is almost incredible to see that a university graduate has gone through years and years of study of complex subjects and yet does not know what “or” or “by” or “an” means. It has to be seen to be believed. Yet when cleaned up his whole education turns from a solid mass of question marks to a clean useful view.
A test of schoolchildren in Johannesburg once showed that Intelligence DECREASED with each new year of school!
The answer to the puzzle was simply that each year they added a few dozen more crushing misunderstood words onto an already confused vocabulary that no one ever got them to look up.
Stupidity is the effect of misunderstood words.
In those areas which give Man the most trouble you will find the most alteration of fact, the most confused and conflicting ideas and of course the greatest number of misunderstood words. Take “economics” for example.
The subject of psychology began its texts by saying they did not know what the word means. So the subject itself never arrived. Professor Wundt of Leipzig University in 1879 perverted the term. It really means just “a study (ology) of the soul (psyche)”. But Wundt, working under the eye of Bismarck, the greatest of German military fascists, at the height of German war ambitions, had to deny Man had a soul. So there went the whole subject! Men were thereafter animals (it is all right to kill animals) and Man had no soul, so the word psychology could no longer be defined.
THE EARLIEST MISUNDERSTOOD WORD IN A SUBJECT IS A KEY TO LATER MISUNDERSTOOD WORDS IN THAT SUBJECT.
“HCOB” (Hubbard Communications Office Bulletin), “Remimeo” (Orgs which receive this must mimeograph it again and distribute it to staff), “TR” (Training Drill), “Issue I” (first issue of that date), are the commonest misunderstoods. Because they occur at the beginning of an HCOB!
Then come words like “a”, “the” and other simple English as the next words that often read.
In studying a foreign language it is often found that the grammar words of one’s own language that tell about the grammar in the foreign language are basic to not being able to learn the foreign language.
The test of whether the person understands a word is “does it read on the meter as a fall when he reads the word in the material being cleared”.
That a person says he knows the meaning is not acceptable. Have him look it up no matter how simple the word is.
