If you have to copy and paste it is an indication that you do not comprehend and cannot apply the concept.
Exactly what many of us have attempted to tell you all along. You cannot define it, and you cannot apply it. That is why you are still able to believe that you do not come at things from an audist perspective.
And, as I have told you numerous times, copying and pasting from an abstract is useless to support your position.
But, as has been demonstrated numerous times, you have no interest in actually learning about covert audism and the ways in which it influences and impacts all of society. Your only interest is in attempting to defend your audist perspectives as not being audist. Oh, well. Have at it. But don't be surprised or offended when your own audism is pointed out to you.
