Mind your language!

I regret that my attempt to satirise the language of a profession, or any other institution which uses words to impress rather than to inform, failed to impress John Constable.

I regret also that he offers no explanation of what "broader contextual aesthetic aspects" might mean.

Perhaps one of your architect readers can offer enlightenment, seriously.
