Checking Spelling, Checking Jargon
The number of words one has to add to Microsoft Word's spellcheck dictionary seems to me to be a very good indication of the amount of jargon in our discipline. It also makes me realize that there are some words that I seldom use. (Or perhaps I just didn't bother to add them when I did use them.) Is it possible that I've not typed the word "structuralist" since I got a new computer two years ago?
