Jargon

From Teflpedia

Jargon (/ʤɑ:gən/) refers to words or expressions used by a particular group that are difficult for others to understand.[1] The term is somewhat pejorative. The world of English teaching is by no means immune to the use of both jargon and acronyms.

Examples:[edit | edit source]

Examples of types of jargon include:

  • management-speak, corporate-speak, marketing-speak, geek-speak, lawyer-speak, media-speak, government-speak, military-speak, computer-speak, BBC-speak, tech-speak, legal-speak.[2]
