Common Language

When writing stories, more time is spend in avoiding words that are ambiguous (ex: “ball”). I feel it is fine as far as everyone in the team interprets “ball” as “football’ instead of some interpreting it as “basketball” and some as “baseball”.
So instead of spending more time in refining stories, teams should spend time in setting up a common language within a team.

Yes, and maybe even a ubiquitous language within the project domain/organization/company?
