Great idea to create a dictionary of "Walk Talk" identify ways that the same
word is used one way by The Walk and other ways in the Christian world.
Its a good idea to identify Scripture passages commonly used by The Walk and how TW interpretation of these passages differs from how these same passages are interpreted by communities untainted by The Walk and untainted by authoritarianism.
"Loading the language" one of the key components of indoctrination used by a totalitarian leader. It is also how such leaders isolate followers from the outside world.
This whole article is a great read.

Lay hands on = pray for someone by putting hands on their head (usually only done by elders or other ministries)
Ministry = A pastor (shepherd), elder, deacon or other set-in ministry (almost exclusively male)
Set In = to designate a person to an office, usually by prayer and laying on of hands
Set Out = to put someone outside of TLWF (ex-communicate)
Submission = a doctrine whereby members of the church must ask permission in minute detail for anything they wish to do (including, but not limited to, dating, marriage, employment, residence, schooling, areas of interest, etc.)
Wait on the Lord = contemplative zoning out, definition nebulous
Worship/Singing in the Spirit = Singing to the Lord in spontaneous words or tongues; hands are often raised
