    I highlight only these words when studying my WT.

    Buzz Words Used In Watchtower Publications

    The next time that you read a book or magazine published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, see how many of these buzz words and phrases you come across.

    This Clearly Shows . . .
    Obviously . . .
    The Bible plainly says . . . (Even if the Bible plainly says something, the Watchtower is expert in twisting that scripture to mean something else.)
    Logically . . . (I love this one. It means that "we are guessing here". We're probably wrong, but for now we'll take a chance.")
    Has clearly shown . . .
    Justifiably . . .
    We have clearly seen . . .
    Surly this is reasonable . . .
    The evidence shows . . .
    We might reasonable assume. . . (This is another good one. Reasonable to whom?)
    The evidence should be clear . . .
    Most/Many Scholars . . . (What scholars? Name them. Who are these scholars. I am beginning to think that it is a family named "Scholars.")
    Reasonably, then . . .
    Surely then . . .
    Thus the facts make clear . . . (The Watchtower made up the facts.)
    Truly . . .
    What must one do . . .
    Most certainly...
    Of course...
    Isn't it reasonable to conclude... (We don't really know, we're guessing.)
    Fine examples...
    Thus, we can see
    A mature christian...... (Who doesn't want to be a mature christian. After this phrase we are all apt to agree with what is being said.)

    In order to play this game I'd have to read their wretched stuff...and I am not doing that!! Evidently my reasonable assumption is clearly a fine example of logically assessing a smoldering heap of cow dung.

    All the loaded language will come out at the cult gatherings to fool the Jobos into thinking it's all from their imaginary invisible sky friend.

    The only difference between my coffee and their magazines is :

    I asked for coffee ! (get the pun)

    You forgot the biggest one of all: Evidently

    WTS buzzwords only make sense if you read them as opposites:

    "Evidently" means "there is no evidence"

    "Logically" means "irrationally"

    "Possibly" means "this certainly could never have occurred"

    And so on.

    Oh and another favorite of mine: "By extension"

    "By extension" means "making a conclusion that is in no way supported by the preceding expression"

    As in:

    "Hezekiah was a good king, therefore, by extension, true Christians use videos in the field ministry."

    "some brothers" " a sister in france was..." "philip, a brother, was at work ..." "Nancy , a sister, commented that she studied every night..." They love to have annomonious sources that think exactly what they are printing.
