Missing dentures

Dear all,

I missed Walt's contribution when he published it on the 8th of June on decoding the language of academia,

Having worked in the United Nations for 25 years, and drafted countless memoranda, I can testify that coded language thrives there as well!

For example, the words 'You will recall', normally refer to something that has never happened.

With best wishes, Tor

I did not create these, but I don't know who originally did.  They will be appreciated by anyone who has ever written or suffered through reading academic papers.

------------------------------------------------

Decoding The Language of Academia


"It has long been known" = I didn't look up the original reference.

"A definite trend is evident" = These data are practically meaningless.

"While it has not been possible to provide definite answers to the questions" = An unsuccessful experiment, but I still hope to get it published.

"Three of the samples were chosen for detailed study" = The other results didn't make any sense.

"Typical results are shown" = This is the prettiest graph.

"These results will be in a subsequent report" = I might get around to this sometime, if pushed/funded.

"In my experience" = once.

"In case after case" = twice.

"In a series of cases" = thrice.

"It is believed that" = I think.

"It is generally believed that" = A couple of others think so, too.

"Correct within an order of magnitude" = Wrong.

"According to statistical analysis" = Rumor has it.

"A statistically oriented projection of the significance of these findings" = A wild guess.

"A careful analysis of obtainable data" = Three pages of notes were obliterated when I knocked over my coffee.

"It is clear that much additional work will be required before a complete understanding of this phenomenon occurs"= I don't get it.

"After additional study by my colleagues"= They don't get it either.

"Thanks are due to Joe Blotz for assistance with the experiment and to Cindy Adams for valuable discussions" = Mr. Blotz did the work and Ms. Adams explained to me what it meant.

"A highly significant area for exploratory study" = A totally useless topic selected by my committee.

"It is hoped that this study will stimulate further investigation in this field" = I quit.
