Summary0000965: Problem messages for a wording that already has a meaning do not point to the statements establishing that meaning
DescriptionThe attached source was reduced from 0000962. In this form, the problem message,

- - - -
Problem. You wrote 'The specific action-processing rulebook has a truth state called action in world' , but 'action in world' already has a meaning, which this would clash with.
- - - -

is sufficient for an author to work out where the conflicting meaning is coming from. But the author has very little guidance for where to go looking in the context of a full story and its extensions. One or more additional source text links would help immensely.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
There is a room.
A thing called the world globe is here.

It's too large-scale a change to diagnose this as fully as the report would like, but I've improved things somewhat.
