    Haha, I don't know how a lot of these word could be dropped from any vocabulary. Client?! Why is client on there? Alternatives to the word client are likely to be even more 'buzzwordy'.
     
  4. well from what the news article said, they felt it de-humanised the local government... they thought that they needed to use more common english instead of buzzword english.
