Clean Language Questions: Abbreviations
by Marian Way in Clean Language
When I am taking notes during a client session, I find it useful to write my questions as well as the client’s responses. This helps me to keep track of the client’s logic. But writing the questions out in full takes too long, so, along with many others, I use the following abbreviations:
- AE? : Is there anything else about ... ?
- WKO? : What kind of … is that…?
- W/Wb? : Where / Whereabouts?
- S/S? : Does … have a size or a shape?
- TLW? : That’s … like what?
- TWH? : Then what happens?
- WHN? : What happens next?
- WCF? : Where does / could … come from?
- WH2? : When… what happens to … ?
- R? : Is there a relationship between … and … ?
- HM? : How many … ?
- I/O? : Is that on the inside or outside?
- WWYLTHH? : What would you like to have happen?
- WNTH? : What needs to happen for …?
- HK? : How do you know ... ?
