Welcome to our Clean Collection!

Penny, David and James, 2003
Our purpose for this site is to provide a record of the continual development of the field originated by David Grove – in particular applications of Clean Language, metaphor and Symbolic Modelling. We created the original website in 1997, so we guess that makes us early adopters!  The site accumulated nearly 400 articles, blogs and resource pages. Transferring them all to the new-style website has taken some time, but we are almost there. We’ve also added some newly published articles such as these three which give an up to date introduction to our work:
Modelling in the symbolic domain
Introducing Clean Language
Resources, embodied metaphor and Clean Language

Are you new to Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling? 

Here are some more introductory articles about particular applications:

And we have compiled a list of over 120 articles published in academic and professional journals that have incorporated the ideas of David Grove – many available for instant download.
Publications using David Grove’s ideas

And finally, while browsing the site if you come across any errors, typos, and other gremlins that may have crept in during the transfer, please let us know via the Contact page. We’d appreciate your help.
