I have just had an out burst in this quarter’s Market Leader (quarterly journal of the Marketing Society-subscribe here) about the use of jargon in marketing – which my daughter read and described as pompous.
Perhaps I have reached a pompous age – must do something as an antidote
It was inspired by Orwell’s essay Politics and the English Language – in which he wrote
“the slovenliness of our language makes it easier to have foolish thoughts”
“If thought corrupts language ( think of the dead language of the communists) language can also corrupt thought”
