Descriptive Words And Software Testing

Words, and how they affect cognition, perception, state and action, interest me. And that is one of the reasons why I continue to study NLP, and General Semantics (ESGS,IGS).

After writing a blog entry on descriptive words and how they can be used to help generate new questions to ask of the testing process and application under test. I wanted to experiment with a less linear and more diagrammatic communication format, so... I thought, and I drew, and I experimented, and I turned that textual blog entry into a single page of diagrams and boxed out text.

Feel free to download and print off the pdf version. The gif below is of a lower resolution than the pdf, but does have the advantage that some of the elements on the diagram have links to relevant pages.

Explore, play and experiment.
