Everything Language and Grammar

Common Sense from Down Under: Convoluted Language

Posted by languageandgrammar on March 25, 2010

I just wanted to share an article I found when I searched for “convoluted language” today:  Convoluted language leads to convoluted thinking.

Not only does it hit on one of this blog’s favorites (calling every problem an issue), it also touches on other examples of convoluted, indirect, or passive aggressive language. I know that the article is ancient in Internet time, coming from 2004, but it’s worth a read.
