I'm not quite sure what you're after, but there was a great op-ed article in Architectural Record a few years back written by a Professor (Harvard, I think) complaining about architects and students inventing their own language, which was muddled and unclear. Clarity of language, he asserted, is indicative of clarity of thought. It was great.

Does anyone out there have this article, or remember the issue?

At any rate, just for laughs, follow the link below.
