The instinct to answer a query *exactly* as presented by the words
that are used is strong in some - especially the academically inclined and
public servants, IME. But all they want is to fob real questions off into
no man's land. ( See any "Yes Minister" script. )
Looking behind the words presented and imagining what thoughts
must have prevoked them is a human skill of high degree.
Realising when people's words are ambiguous or make no sense at all
is a mental disipline that goes against the grain for the majority who
fondly imagine *all* strings words have the meaning that is to be found by
using the rules of grammer and a dictionary.
