Penetrating the Fog   

In “Weasel Words: The Dictionary of American Doublespeak,” University of Maryland professors Paul Wasserman and Don Hausrath shine the spotlight on language that obscures rather than illuminates. Some examples:

By AJR Staff
     


Behavior transition corridors: Middle school educator talk for hallways.

Exceptional: Used to describe children with disabilities, often mental retardation.

Free world: A hackneyed political slogan for that group of nations whose sympathies are allied to American interests, whether their citizens enjoy freedom or are ruled by despots.

Home-protection weapon: A way of not saying gun.

Improper source dependence: Infinitely softer sounding than the harsher word for the same action — plagiarism.

Meaningful dialogue: A press officer's term masking the fact that nothing was accomplished during the meeting.

Negatively privileged: A way for sociologists to not say poor people.

Re-engineered: A former position (yours) has been moved from its former place in the company structure. In fact, the position has been shifted to the Dumpster outside. In short, you're fired.

Support group: What we used to call close friends and caring relatives.

To dialogue: While often it means in educational jargon "to discuss," it has been absorbed, as well, by sensitivity trainers to imply valid give-and-take communication, rather than a run-of-the-mill, garden-variety conversation.

Your call is important to us: A canned corporate response to telephone queries. .. Maybe your call is important to us, but not so important as our bottom line.

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
