Publisher's Summary

Jargon Junkies: the world is full of them. These people are addicted to using jargon language that is either incomprehensible or simply inappropriate for the situation or relationship. Whether you are a parent using corporate lingo with your children, or simply having a hard time understanding the terms used by children today, it is important to learn how to sober up and start using plain English.

As a recovering jargonholic herself, Jennie Näss shares her story of having kicked the jargonese habit and claimed victory for being jargon-clean with her family and friends since 2005. Learning to communicate effectively in all situations is vital, and requires modifying language to fit the audience. This hands-on guide offers a 12-step program to clean up jargon addiction, and encourages families to put these new jargon-free exercises into practice as soon as possible.

Pass the Ketchup, Hold the Jargonese Please is a bold way to take back simple conversation with family and friends. Get on the plain English wagon and lose the need for jargon in everyday language.
