Hello Sharon,

There is a clause in the NoL, which states that you and all of the other Claimants can define what the words mean. Look at the Educational UK NoL on the interim site, on page 3, under "SITUS" and "Governing Law". In particular, read the last sentence which states to the Respondents:

"You agree that all words in this Contract are as the Claimant/Libellant understands them."

Even the word "understands" has an "s" on the end so that it can be talking about what you understand in the future, should your understanding change...

also, many of the words in the NoL are chosen for their expansiveness, so that their meaning can be interpreted in a number of ways.

The question was more about the language we use as men and women, compared to how the police and the corporation speaks to us. Like using man and woman instead of person, resident, citizen which are titles of course.

Yes, even "human being" is a problematic word. It's always safe to use "man, woman, and child"... "kid" is a name for a baby / young goat.

inPower is not providing any teachings on the words to use with police or judges, etc.

I'm aware that law dictionaries define "human" as "monster", but I feel we need to reclaim the word since it comes from Latin "humus" meaning "earth". After all: Out of clay we were made, ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Are we not of the dust of stars? That being said, in a court, which I hope never (again) to be summonsed to, I would be cautious about using a word that they would twist to our disadvantage.

I agree about being cautious. I guess I was hoping that someone had composed a list of words "they" use and words we the women and men should be using instead.
