JUST A HELPFUL LITTLE TIP THAT I FIND USEFUL.
There is a fine line between understandable words and jargon. However, sometimes going above the norm works to your benefit when it comes to content and keywords!
Jargon are words and phrases used by elite categorized groups of people from a particular profession, trade or subculture (such as the medical field, business field, etc.) that are sometimes not the easiest to comprehend. Nevertheless, they are interesting words and phrases that are spread around in conversations and, most importantly, on the internet!
These are words that would sound foreign and like gobbledygook (also jargon!) to anyone outside the particular occupational groups.
It's funny and so ironic that jargon is also referred to as meaningless talk or writing. So much of these wild words of today are ones that don't make any sense to me, yet I hear them often---so, I know they are popular!
Some define these jargon words as babble, gibberish, chatter or slang (informal). But, I feel they blend in nicely with all the digital techy language on the web.
Webster is constantly adding these types of words to their dictionary, however slang or tech savvy they are, because society is accepting them as common and upcoming.
Google is finding them acceptable and intriguing, since they are unusual, yet in tune with today's cultural talk. Plus, they come from a wide array of worldly languages such as Old French, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Japanese, Korean and English. ---Some dating back to the mid-17th Century that are finding their way back into society!
These words are known as unintelligible, yet popular. (Go figure!) They provide a shortcut in understanding their meanings.
SO, WHAT TYPE OF WORDS ARE THESE?
Some examples of the words I'm referring to are as follows:
- cache (local memory)
- firmware (fixed programs and data)
- mainframe (powerful computer used by large corporations for bulk data processing)
- TTYL - Talk to you later
- BTW - By the way
- IIRC - If I remember correctly
- MOTD - Message of the day
- CYA - See you around
- FAQ - Frequently asked questions
- HTH - Hope this helps
- BFF - Best friends forever
- IANAL - I am not a lawyer
- LOL - Laugh out loud
due diligence (putting effort into research for the best results
bang for the buck (most for the money)
vitals (the body's important internal organs)
