Healing with language: Conversational postulates
A conversational postulate is a question asking for yes or no as a response, which often presupposes and produces a behavioral response. The most common conversational postulate is, "Do you have the time?" A literal response to the question would be either yes or no, but when asked this question, most people will look at their watches and tell the person who asked the time. If someone asks, "Does anyone have a pencil?" people typically respond by checking to see whether they have a pencil the person can borrow.

The Townsend Letter
Until 1983, conventional medical wisdom decreed that low gastric pH and vigorous motility rendered the stomach nearly sterile. While researchers had observed microorganisms, including curvilinear, gram-negative bacteria, adherent to gastric epithelial cells in the late 19th century, virtually all experts believed any microbes found in the stomach were transient, derived from swallowed secretions or ingested foods and liquids.
