How to Stop Jargon From Pulling the Plug Out of Your Powerful Content

How to Stop Jargon From Pulling the Plug Out of Your Powerful Content | English | Scoop.it

You can't create clear, powerful content on a foundation of jargon. Use these examples and key points to convince your clients and your peers to rise above the sea of jargon we all navigate every day.

 

We live in the Age of Jargon-Geddon, buried under a blizzard of buzzwords.

 

For example, during the day, we use expressions such as “core competencies” (meaning: “what we’re good at“), “best of breed” (are we talking about show dogs?), and “ideate” (as opposed to “think?”).

 

After work, those of us who are parents attend school meetings, where educators tell us (with straight faces) that we must improve “enrichment processes to elevate engagement structures.” Translated from jargon into English (you know, the language we send our kids to school to learn to use properly and clearly), this means: “We need to do a better job of keeping our kids interested in class.”

Brittany Tyne's insight:

Does this over-generalise the way we speak? Do we need to simplify what we're saying instead of over complicating what we're trying to convery? Sometimes when we speak we confuse others from the over-use of colloquialisms, is this the case the author is trying to make?
