About this course

Check out these links to some of my favourite comedians talking about slippery language ...

George Carlin - Euphemisms

George Carlin's observations about using complicated language to convey simple ideas. Often, jargon gets in the way of clear, meaningful communication. 

Abbott and Costello - Who's on First

Note Lou Costello's frustration mount as he simply cannot understand what Bud Abbot is trying to tell him.  This is much like the frustration that can arise in meetings and workshops when folks use simple words to convey different meanings.
