|Summary||0001030: "16.1. Understand" clashes with "17.30. Supplying a missing noun/second noun"|
|Description||"16.1. Understand" says this.|
"For obvious reasons, this pattern of words needs to match the expectations of the action. Photographing applies to "one visible thing" - the "visible" just means it does not need to be touched, only seen - so neither of these would be allowable:
Understand "photograph" as photographing.
Understand "photograph [someone] standing next to [something]" as photographing.
The first is bad because it supplies no things at all, the second because it supplies two: what we want, of course, is just the one.".
But the first is allowable as stated in "17.30. Supplying a missing noun/second noun".
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
"Test" Rule for supplying a missing noun while locking: now the noun is the standard door; say "([the noun])[command clarification break]". Rule for supplying a missing noun while unlocking: now the noun is the standard door; say "([the noun])[command clarification break]". Rule for supplying a missing second noun while locking: now the second noun is the key; say "(with [the second noun])[command clarification break]". Rule for supplying a missing second noun while unlocking: now the second noun is the key; say "(with [the second noun])[command clarification break]". Understand "Lock" and "Lock [something]" as locking it with. Understand "Unlock" and "Unlock [something]" as unlocking it with. The Testing Room is A Room. A key is in the testing room. The key unlocks the standard door. The standard door is a locked door. The Standard Door is south of The Testing Room. The Other Room is south of The Standard Door. Test me with "unlock / lock / unlock door / lock door / unlock door with key / lock door with key / unlock door with key / s".
|Additional Information||Not only is it allowed, it is also crucial that it exists in order for certain supplying a missing noun/second noun rules to work. Blanking out the two understand lines and rerunning the code shows how important they are.|
