As a “Part 2” to last week’s post on the BBC’s coverage of Davos language, I’d like to point you to a whole host of examples of business jargon.
In the title above, “bafflegab” is a word for jargon used in the Pentagon in the 1960s, updated to “globaloney” by a BBC contributor. 🙂
Regular readers will know that I do enjoy poking fun at ‘business-ese’ from to time. 🙂 So you can imagine my joy at discovering the Business Buzzwords Generator made available by The Wall Street Journal.
A 6-minute TED talk this morning for you, by Thea Smith, on corporate jargon, and translating it – being more “intentional” about our words.
Have a lovely week!
