I now bring you a page from the book: The Tongue and Quill. This book is also known as AFH 33-337. The Tongue and Quill were produced by the Air Force in 1985. And now I present Page 60: Win With Wordsmanship.
After years of hacking through etymological thickets at the US Publish Health Service, Philip Broughton, a 63-year old official, created a surefire method to convert frustration into fulfillment (jargon-wise). Euphemistically called the Systematic Buzz Projector. Broughton’s system employs a lexicon of 30 carefully chosen “buzzwords“:
The procedure is simple. Think of any three-digit number, then select the corresponding buzzword from each column. For instance, numbers 2, 5, and 7 produce “systematized logistical projection,” a phrase that can be dropped into virtually any report with that ring of decisive, knowledgeable authority. “No one will have the remotest ideas of what you’re talking about, ” says Broughton, “but the important this is they’re not about to admit it.”
