I'm well aware of the Department of Redundancy Department. Many times I have read these very phrases and cringed. Especially the unique phrase "very unique" :)

The working jargon of many professionals (looking at you lawyers and financial planners) sounds pretentious when it's not being explained between colleagues. It adds to the frustration of understanding a complicated idea. I mean, some scientific discussion aside, there is a simple way to explain a complex idea, without the verbiage, to people outside of their profession. Their job is to find a proper balance. The list you sent is a start.

Thank you for this.
