Always have a dictionary in the auditing room with you. When running a process newly or whenever the preclear is confused about the meaning of the commands, clear the commands with the preclear, using the dictionary, if necessary.
It could take a long time to clear the command. The worse off the pc, the longer it takes.
Auditor is going to run 0-0 on the pc. Auditor reads the commands one at a time to the pc and asks the pc “What does this command mean to you?” From the pc’s answer the auditor realizes that the pc has a confusion on the words “willing” and “talk”. He tells the pc to look them up in a dictionary. The pc now understands “talk”, but still seems slightly puzzled about “willing”. Now the auditor could tell the pc to use the word “willing” in a few sentences. When the pc understands it, the auditor again gets the pc to tell him what the whole command means to him.
If necessary, the auditor could get the pc to define each word of the command to be used.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS THE AUDITOR TO EVALUATE FOR THE PC AND TELL HIM WHAT THE WORD OR COMMAND MEANS.
The worst fault is the pc using a new set of words in place of the actual word and answering the alter-ised word, not the word itself, (see HCOB 10 March 1965, “Words, Misunderstood Goofs”).
