The following is a list of NLP terms frequently misunderstood or so complexly defined as to not be clear. In an ongoing effort to clean up NLP's act, I have provided easy to understand definitions for your viewing pleasure. I feel that as you look over these entries, you may notice the way in which you understand the methods in which you know what it is that you already knew and now know even better. Try saying that five times without getting dizzy.
