Jargon (/ʤɑ:gən/) refers to words or expressions used by a particular group that are difficult for others to understand. 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.
