Complex Analysis, Simple Words

Don't mess up your sophisticated, wonderful analyses with overusing the most complex, difficult to follow language possible. Using the best word does not always mean the most impressive (notice, I could have used erudite, but.....). Simple language allows us to speak to diverse audiences (notice, not discourse communities).

Of course, using dense, theoretically laden (perhaps better, big :)). words is sometimes essential, but only when they are the best, absolutely necessary words to use.

Manta: complex ideas, simple language.
