The language you can’t comprehend

great article about how people don’t make sense anymore:

We have forgotten how to use the real names of real things. Like doorknobs. Instead, people talk about the idea of doorknobs, without actually using the word “doorknob”. So a new idea for a doorknob becomes “an innovation in residential access”.

Not a new thought, but well written.
