NLP Punctuation Ambiguity

In NLP Punctuation Ambiguity or Siamese Sentences is part of the Milton Model. Punctuation Ambiguity is a bit harder to detect than the previous sets in the Indirect Elicitation Patterns. Punctuation ambiguity is identified as where you use a sequence of words which is the result of an overlap of two well-formed Surface Structures sentences sharing a word or phrase. In other words, take two sentences, one that ends with the same word as the second sentence begins. For example sentence one: “I want you to notice your hand” and sentence two: “Hand me the glass”. Now comes the trick. Make sentence one and two as one sentence and remove the “Hand” from the second sentence. You will get “I want you to notice your hand me the glass”. Simple right?!

NLP Scope Ambiguity

In NLP Scope Ambiguity is a part of the Milton Model. Scope Ambiguity is simple to recognise. Take the following example “They went with the charming men and women”. Were there only charming men? Were the men and women charming? In other words, the scope of reference in this example sentence is not clear at all. It provides room for interpretation. And as a lot of the Indirect Elicitation Paterns do, please do note that this particular part, the Scope Ambiguty, has the same effect. The brain needs to think and relate to the environment to place all the information in the right context. In other words, we distract the brain a little bit to allow us to bring in other information. How easy can your life be as an NLP Practitioner?

NLP Phonological Ambiguity

In NLP Phonological Ambiguity is best described as words that sound the same but have a different meaning. Utilising Phonological Ambiguities forces the brain to think for a moment. It needs to interpret the contect of the sentence and place the ambiguity of the Phonological Ambiguity in the right contect. As a result the sender of the message made the receiver of it think for a second or so. Take the following example sentence: “I watch you which maybe is a good thing.”. Several things happen in this sentence. Let’s do a little bit of disecting this sentence. I can be Eye. Watch can be looking or relate to a clock. Which can relate to a choice or a Wich.
