NLP Ambiguities

In NLP Ambiguities come in a variety of flavors. Phonological Ambiguity, Syntactic Ambiguity, Scope Ambiguity and Punctuation Ambiguity. Ambiguity or vague usage of language, literally means lack of specificity. You can utilize these patterns by taking advantage of everything in the listeners experience. You can use both internal and external environments to support the intention of the speaker. While working with a client, the door to your working room mistakenly opens. Instead of getting frustrated and annoyed, you start to utilize your environment.

Limits of the Speaker’s Model (Generalization)

Limits of the Speaker’s Model is the Third part of the Inverse of the Meta Model. Remember that the Meta Model is used to search for and reveal Generalized information. Here we are going to discover the Two parts it is been made of. Now in the Meta Model we learned to ask the questions to discover what has been generalized by the client. In the Milton Model we, as the NLP Practitioner, we are utilizing to deliberately generalize information and provide suggestions with it. This part, Limits of the Speaker’s Model, is the least significant of the three chunks of information. So study it closely, in the end it will make the utilization of the Milton Model only easier.

Semantic Ill-Formedness (Distortion)

Semantic Ill-Formedness is the Second part of the Inverse of the Meta Model. Remember that the we use the Meta Model here to reveal Distorted information. Here we are going to discover the Three parts it is been made of. Now in the Meta Model we learned to ask the questions to discover what has been distorted by the client. In the Milton Model we, as the NLP Practitioner, we are utilizing to deliberately distort information and provide suggestions with it. This part, Semantic Ill-Formedness, is very powerful. So study it closely, in the end it will make the utilization of the Milton Model only easier.

Presuppositions

We have learnt in the Meta Model that Presuppositions are basically – “What is the person assuming to be true, underneath what they are actually telling me?”. Presuppositions are not necessarily true, but even if the are not, by holding something not-yet-true as being true, we can help to bring that to fruition. Now the presuppositions in relation to the Milton Model. Presuppositions are the most powerful of the language patterns, when used by a communicator who presupposes what she does not want to have questioned. A general principle is to give the person lots of choices and yet have all of the choices presuppose the response you want.

Awareness Predicates

Did you realize that your unconscious mind already has begun learning about Awareness Predicates? Sounds silly right? Yet your unconscious mind does. Now it is only the trick to continue these learnings and incorporate it in your knowledge of presuppositions and the Milton Model. Do you realize consciously now that you are reading this? Awareness Predicates are used to provide an ‘instruction’ to the listener. Have you noticed the attractive writing style in this article to keep you reading and learning at the same time?

Lost Performative

Lost Performative are Evaluative statements. The person making the evaluation is missing (lost) from the sentence is called Lost Performative. Lost Performatives can be a very effective way of delivering presuppositions. We will work this out in our example section.

Adverbs and Adjectives

Adverbs and Adjectives presuppose that something is going to happen. Adverbs and adjectives add information to a verb (doing word) or noun (naming word) respectively. If I were to say “Johnny is running quickly”, “quickly” would be the adverb as it is adding more detail or qualifying the verb “to run”. The question is how will the experience be? That is the question, you, as an NLP Practitioner needs to investigate. Adverbs and Adjectives is a wonderful part of the Milton Model that helps you do your work easier and quicker. It only needs some planning. For you to experience the information below.

Mind Reading

I know, you know you have already learned a lot about Mind Reading in the Milton Model. Mind Reading is the phenomena where you act as if you truly know what is going on in the listeners head. Mind reading statements send the person that you are communicating with into a mild form of confusion at the conscious level. They will ask themselves: “How to they now, I know?” It creates a bit of confusion. And as a result the conscious mind is given something to think over. That is exactly you want to achieve. Make the conscious mind busy to seep in instructions to the unconscious mind. Now you reading this will think: “Is it that easy?” Yes it is!

Change of Time Verbs and Adverbs

Change of Time Verbs and Adverbs is a great article about helping you deeper understand the concept of presuppositions and the Milton Model. It helps you to quickly and easily change the perception of your client. In proper use of it, you are able to provide some kind of an embedded command to your client. It helps you presuppose something by using Change of Time Verbs and Adverbs. Take the following example: “You can continue to relax.”. It presupposes that you are already relaxing. Another one: “Are you still interested in doing business?”. It presupposes that you were at some point interested in doing business with me. Now we have provided you some examples already, let’s take a closer look on how to apply this technique. Here we go!

Modal Operators

In the Meta Model we have already leant that there are Modal Operators of Necessity and Possibility. Here in the Milton Model we only talk about Modal Operators.
